I was wondering if anybody has tried to run the software on a 64 bit version of vista and get it to work. I have tried but can not get it to run, if anyone has got it to run could you post it here. Thanks

I believe that came up earlier in this thread and vista 64 is a no go.

i guess i am totally lost, those curves are completly backward from what t thought they would be...

the setup must hava a hair trigger, then soften? i am sure i am not understanding how the drive freq works...

can anyone explain??

Im not the absolute expert on this, but I will tell you the way it was explained to me.
The higher the number(freq) the smoother the response
So if you start the curve at the top, it will be the most progressive.
How long you want it to stay smooth determines when you want to start lowering the frequency.
The only thing I dont understand is why the Reedy setup started at a lower frequency on an outdoor track, unless there was insane amounts of grip.
At the same time, the carpet setup is using a high freq, when usually there is almost unlimited bite on carpet and you wouldnt need to baby it.
Now saying that, we need to keep in mind that you operate in the first part of the curve only a small percentage of the time, so maybe the middle portion of the curve is more critical to get right.
Any further definition from KO would be helpful

How does the new software versions of this speedy compare to the SPX and RS speedies on the market ?

Is the V1.5 software coming in current models or do you have to send it off to get this put in. Also what do you need to tune the speedy and change settings for Spec classes such as 17.5 and 10.5 ?

lower freq = more punch, higher frequency = more rpm, more efficiency. the profile for speedworld (i'm guessing and this is what it felt like on the track) ends in the higher freq to get that "second gear" effect off the very long straight away. this was needed for 17.5.. and even more visible with 13.5.

for carpet, i wanted more rip since i pretty much drive on/off. but the set up was really good when i stayed smooth on the throttle.

for those viewing the images above....

on the left side.. it says.. "52 and goes down to "1".

52 = 2.04khz
1 = 12.146khz

when people say "lower frequency" it actually means a bigger number on that left side... and higher frequency means closer to "1".

B4James.. you can download the software from Ko Propo website: http://www.kopropo.com/america/index...d=21&Itemid=59

scroll to the bottom and get the StockManager. to have your computer communicate with the esc, you will need to purchase the ICS USB adapter.

its more about the way the car takes off,and im really talking about my F1 car with the brushed motor and the c2 speedo,but i am going to assume the software is set up fairly similar
