Default LRP Sphere 2007

I have a brand new sphere 2007, when the car is on the ground and I hit the gas, it won't move unless I give it a push. Any thoughts on why it is doing this? The motor, the speedo or both? All of the wiring is correct.

It seems like this is happening to a lot of people, how does the tekin or novak brushless systems compare?

I read my instructions, it said that it detects brush/brushless automatically.

LRP has no more problems than any other speedo. Out of the thousands they sell they are bound to have a few go bad from time to time...the same is the case with Novak and Tekin (Tekin has no BL speedo yet).

Check motor & try this ...


I`v seen a few motor bearing`s spin oil on the sensor inside..
Try cleaning sensor with q-tip with rotor removed from can...

Quick question for you Sphere experts. I'm unloading all of my Novak stuff to switch over to LRP and try the Tekin.

What is the Sphere 2007? I was under the assumption that the TC version was the newest and top of the line for them. Is there a better LRP out there?

Sorry to hijack.. You guys seemed the logical ones to ask without starting yet another brushless thread.

Thanks.

The Sphere 2007 preceded the TC version. It does not have the fan on it like the TC does. I have both versions and they are excellent.

About the TC per LRP website:

Optimised, even for running on 4 Sub-C cells
Low-profile heat sinks with integrated high-performance fan
Fan on/off via speed control main switch
Large power capacitor optimised for Touring Car applications
Special Touring Car software
Launch control
Optimised ADPCTM profiles
Totally redesigned brake software
Internal-Temp-Check system
12 AWG power-wire
