Default 528 software only for v2.1 esc?

Hi

Does anyone know why the 528 software is stated as being only for v2.1 series of ESCs? Safe to use it with a v2.0 LPF?

Hi,

When using the sp motor 17.5t and speedo with the 100422stock software what should the timing be set at on the actual motor ? does the speedo automatically take over the timing regardless of what it's set on the motor ?

Also on this link files.mibosport.com/200001241-5ea455f9ed/Supercharger%20Starting%20points dot pdf what are they refering to on items 1-8 under 17.5t ?

Nothing seems to match up with all thre documents

1. because 2.1 is pro only.
2. technically it's ok, but not quite safe, depend on which motor turn you run with. so keep watching the ESC temps, and never forgot to use your fan.

I have been running it on my 2.0 pro with a 10.5 for the last to race outings and have had zero issues... Just great performance. Just watch temp on both esc and motor....

I would go through the following fault finding process:

1. Put 528 back on and set as it was

2 Turn the Lipo cutoff to the off setting

3 Test the car.


If the car goes fine and does not slow down then you have a battery/connector problem or faulty esc.

If the car is just like before then you have a output problem. Probably a faulty esc or sensor wire plug.

Check your motor timing as well. My car had problems when i tried lower timing, but has no problems at higher timing.

The esc timing is in addition to the can timing. I don't find the v3s come alive unless the can timing is maxed out

It sounds as if it's hitting the lipo cutout, double check the voltage per cell is set right (3.0v) and that your batts are in good nic. Normally when the cap is stuffed all you get cogging when you mash the throttle
