I'll give it a shot and see how it does. I had just taken it apart and cleaned it but I don't know if I paid any special attention to the sensor area. BTW, I tried your settings and the motor temps were much better.

I have auto brake problems also with SPX or sxx I can usually use setting 3 or 4 on SXX SS I have to use setting 5 or 6 for same result.

I have a DX3R and the sub trim will give you some drag brake from the transmitter not sure what it would be on the helious though.

I only ask because previously running the SPX in 10.5 TC the car for some reason unknown had drag brake effect in off throttle, the spx auto brake setting I used was on 0 I noticed this effect when I increased the brake punch on my Helios EX-10, now when I converted over to the sxx ss that drag brake effect is gone, this is using the same motor and transmitter settings..everything as before, now with the sxx it feel like the car just keeps rolling past certain apex's, kinda liked the driving style of how I had the drag brake as before...
Has this happened to anyone, or how could I get back this drag brake effect without using the autobrake setting??

I'm not in love with the idea of blaming the sensors in the motors when all the other advanced timing ESC's don't seem to have the same problem.

Do Hall sensors come in different qualities? Is it possible some motor manufacturers use less expensive (and accurate/sensitive) sensors that are more problematic than others?

What is the actual degree of timing on the LRP X.12 13.5 motor?

No it's not the same problem.
Most of the problems are because of to much timing.
The motors have a high standard timing and to much timing added will give problems.
This is not a timing issue with the SXX ss

as of my knowledge all speedos that are shipped from now on will already have mk3 installed. if you happen to get an "older" version you can easily check on the power-up how many beeps you hear. if its 3 its ok. otherwise i am afraid you have to send it in to get it updated.

@tekins: i am quit positiv that with the tekins it is too much timing on the motors. but my tekin had other issues too (no brakes, power fades in the middle of the run etc), so i am guessing with the new speedos things are brought closer to the limits of the motors and problems arise. sadly.

power fade is to much timing or over geared.
All setup issues.

With the new speedo's it's good to now what the motor can handle, the timing on the motor and the gearing to use.
Keep the timing under the 65 in total.
It can go higher but as you are to long above the 60 to 65 timing, you get power fading and a hotter motor.

So when you have a motor with a high timing on it, set it lower or don't set the timing in the speedo to high.

are you saying the tekin issue is too much timing? because that is one of the problems but inaccurate sensors is the biggest problem and reason not to run a certain motor. some of those same motors with the same timing happen to work fine, it is the sensor accuracy pure and simple

Whit the Novak it was the steering servo that gave problems.
Also when they set a higher Boost with the Novak and the LRP motor, this gave problems.

I didn't hear of sensor problems.

Guys, in case you don't check the TC5 thread, I had great success with the SXX SS last weekend. Here's the race report:
http://www.redrc.net/2010/03/tozser-...ouring-champs/

My setup was:
LRP x12 13.5, 4-dot, 0-6-3-0, 7.45 FDR, 150 deg
LRP x12 17.5, 4-dot, 0-6-3-0, 6.00 FDR, 137 deg

This was with the new LRP fan assembly, which brings down the heat a lot.
I could have pushed it a little more to boost 4 and stayed within operating temps, but it was plenty fast at 3.

Most of the A-Main in both classes were some of the fastest Tekin guys in Western Canada, who have been tuning them all season, and my SXX SS was pulling most of them in both 13.5 and 17.5

Going from the SPX to this speedo, my 17.5 is now about as fast as my 13.5 was, and 13.5 is about a 7.5 or 8.5
