Couple of questions...

First, can the old LCD card still be used to upgrade a 2.0 Pro to the 323 software? The one that was thinner/more rounded, as pictured...



And second, are any of you running the Hobbywing software on your SP speedo? The only other guy I know running SP in my area (who also runs mod) runs the HW software instead, because he says it's smoother for mod. He didn't say it's faster, just has smoother power delivery when running mod.

What say ye'?

Looks like the LCD box I use, so it should be able to upgrade the ESC. Just remember to check to see if their is an update to the programming box before trying to update the ESC software.

I ran the 323stk software for boosted 7.5 in MOD (setup is on the SP website). I thought it as easy to drive as my 17.5 boosted car, so no issues with smooth power delivery to me.

First I wait for items to be in stock, then I try to buy them through the website but can't...

Not trying to be a whiner (but it appears I am succeeding). I just want to buy two speed controls, install them, and drive my buggies.

I can't help but think what would happen if I had a problem with one of the products and got the same run around on the website when I tried to get to Customer Service.
You can give our office a call and we will place the order for you via phone...1-888-928-1328

We have 6 of those on the past weekend racing and they were all using the MMM 17.5 and won the stock 17.5 class and USGT class....and there are plenty of those running at IIC right now.

I want to know what do you mean the motor does not spin smoothly....does that even move? Does that run at all..? Or it does not even move but making noise..?

Now...your 2nd motor, it does not spin....you mean it does not even RUN at all..? Completely broken..?

Please specify....

Also...SP office did reply your email....we did not IGNORE your email.

For 4X4...you should get the GT2 PRO now...the new PRO ESC will not be release until next year (really unknown about the time table). We are going to release the no timing version first. For your 4x4, you are going to run MOD and boost and 2S...GT2 PRO is the one you want and it will not be discontinued or replaced anytime soon.

Default need some help

I downloaded the 323 on my lcd box, then proceeded to try and program the speedo. Now the green light keeps going on and beeping , cant re-calibrate or anything as soon as you turn on it starts flashing and beeping and holding the set button does nothing? Ever had this happen? And is there a quick fix?
