no offense taken. My opinion is simply based on the attached published information by LRP.

You are correct it does adjust the throttle map or trigger but it also alters the behavior of the current limiter which affects the punch from the motor. It would be interesting to know what the (secret) factors are?

„Feel“: the „Feel“ adjustment allows you to set the feel of the speed-control to your likes, it‘s a combination of current limiter, throttle map and other (secret) factors which the software alters depending on the status of the car (start, acceleration, full speed). Higher profiles result in more aggressive throttle response, so normally for applications on slippery surfaces lower „Feel“ settings are strongly recommended which give you best car control.

Using these settings on high grip indoor carpet.

What is the latest version software for the LRP SXX Stockspec? Have all the issues been worked out with the latest version of software? And does it work fine with LRP X-12 motors? Thanks!

Spent about 12 hours at the track today, and did a lot of testing with my mk3. Not sure if this will help anybody, but here's what I came up with. It's very fast.

Rubber tire touring car. Carpet track around 96x42'. SPv3 (BOSS) 17.5. FDR 6.6. 0-6-9-2. It's got rip everywhere, stays strong for 6 minutes, and comes off around 150ish with a 25mm fan blowing on it. It's faster than my Tekin+DUO1.

I'm thinking a 5.5 geared with a higher fdr with some boost would be easier and maybe faster to drive than a 4.0 or 4.5.

just an assumption anyway.

I'm thinking the same thing.... just worried it might fry the esc...

Sorry havent been around for sumtimes esp Femca. The orion 11.5T sensor motor cant seem to be able to cope with the mk3. i use to advance the timing on the motor by 2 lines on the mk2 and it was fast on an fdr of 6.3.. on a long straight i manage to overtake a car on 5.5T motor running on TC spec. With the mk3 i have yet to try advance the timing and see how it goes from there and see if any cogging arises from it. Any suggestions?

Akudou, last femca race, some of the racers had a good result using mk3 and orion (default timing), they said they were using feel 5 and boost 5. Any higher than than it will cog. Not so sure about their FDRs though. Maybe you can try it this weekend.

Hey Adam I gave your setup a try, and it was better.........but I still get a small cog on exit of corner with a Nemesis -10 timing. I adjusted gearing a little for my track, which didn't make much difference and after the 6 minute run it was around 120-130. The cogging after the run was much worse than at the start of the race.......starting to think it may be some form of component drift when the sc starts to come up to operating temp.

Sure would be nice if some of those more knowledgable LRP people would get on here and give some form of update or known issues, or even just a " we're working on the trouble".

I was planning on getting one of these but after reading that they still have a problem with cogging I'm going to have to pass for now. I don't think I want to gamble on being one of the lucky ones who doesn't have a cogging issue.
It would be nice if LRP would step up to the plate and say if they are trying to solve this.

I have the Mk3 version with red dot on box.
When i was testing in the car park i found i had a lot of cogging issues when i mashed the throttle. I had it geared fairly high and with boost on around 7. Slipper was fairly tight with little slip.
Tested it with stock boost 3 and still the same.
Loosened the slipper a bit and it was better.
Changed down 8 teeth on the pinion with stock boost (3) and no cogging. Slipper adjusted to slip for the 1st 5 feet.
Adjusted the boost to 10 and still no cogging.

I think if the combination of having your slipper tight without any slip at all, high gearing and mashing the throttle then i think you will have problems.

Personally i'm very disappointed with the LRP SXX SS with the cogging issues it has.
My other branded esc's have no issues at all with any gear ratios.

Hope this helps some people out who have them or were thinking about buying one.

Stonzy,

Have you tried a different brand of sensor cable?

It seems a few are reporting that changing the sensor cable is fixing the cogging issues.

My replacement SXX SS just came back from AE a few days ago and I've got it hooked up to an X12 13.5 but with a Novak sensor cable and I can hit full throttle from a standing start without any cogging.
This is on boost setting of 6 and feel of 3.

Could be worth a try?
