Taken from the SXX Version2 manual, SXX StockSpec ESC states the same that mode #0 will disable all boost:

"MODE.3 (Dual ADPC MOD - "Boost"): the "Boost" adjustment is LRP‘s active motor timing system, depending on many different factors (current, throttle position, RPM, etc) the software calculates the perfect commutation.

MODE LED #0 #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10
Yellow/Red disabled Going from mildest to most aggressive timing profile (value 1 = minimum / value 10 = maximum) (alternate)

Caution: too high "Boost" values increase motor temperature excessively and in the worst case may damage your motor, make sure you find the best performance by increasing values step by step carefully!

Advise: if value #0 is chosen for Mode.3 the blue LED will flash in neutral position in normal operation to indicate that entire timing advancement is disabled completely for "true stock racing" as required by certain federations!
"
Thanks alot for that info....have the V.2 on the way

PDF V2 Manual

Just cruising thru it, I hope they update it to have more than just boost for stock. Gotta run stock for the winter carpet season, but for all I care, if I have close to the same motor as the tekins ill be happy. How many people run the stock spec X-12's? I have heard they are fast. If they can take the heat like the X-12 mods then I imagine they will be fast.

personally, i wouldnt reccomend the SXX mk3. ive just had a brand new one fail with in 2 meetings.
practise was fine, went to switch on for first heat on sunday, nothing, no signs of anything wrong, (switch, wiring problems etc) not smell.

pretty disappionted tbh
Ok cheers, so the 90955 is the one to go for. Have you run one with 13.5t ? How does it go and compare to say the Tekin's and GM's ?

Numbers,,what do they mean?
At least the novak Kinetic with noivalink shows you "exactly" what you are changing...
On another note..Ran the sxx ss in 1/12 open using 5.5 ballistic...ran all day, never dumped and it was fast..brilliant 1/12 speedie

Something that has always puzzled me with RADIO/ESC SETUP- the required 'travel settings'. When the instructions ask for 100% travel of the throttle and brake, are they talking only set the travel %ages at 100% or are they talking 100% of the radios MAX travel %ages?

I hope I'm asking that right

The manual is saying to set the end point adjustment of the throttle on the transmitter to 100% speed and 100% brake.

Pretty sure it means 100% of what your radio is capable of. So if your radio end point goes to 150% you should set it at 150%. Its got something to do with expanding the amount of pulses to the speed control. A electronic whiz kid explained it to me once, he was very insistant that thats the way they should be set.

EXACTLY what I always believed it to mean. But I've been wrong before

I use a M11x by Airtronics and the end points go to 150%. I settup the SXX SS throttle end points to 100% and have not experienced any problems. I can not comment on other brand transmitters.

Yes it will work with no issues at 100%, the point is that expanding the end polint to 150% will provide additional steps in the pulse signal to the speed control. It basically smooths the steps in the wave signal, so it should make it a smoother throttle curve. Either way will work its just a matter of using the combo to its fullest capability.

I'm sure this has been answered before, how does this SXX stock-spec MKIII speed control compare to the Tekin(V203 or V208)? What features seem to be better? Anything thats not as good?

Depends on what you want to use it for in 10.5 or bigger motors its picky on which motor you run with it. Lower motors seem to be ok.
Is it better, I don't think its better or worse, not as programable, but if thats what your trying to get away from, then this is a good speed control. Pick a profile and go, if you nail the profile and FDR it can be a very fast combo, miss it and it will talk to you (cog), use that to tune and you can do well with it.
