i had a orginal sphere tc spec i ran in my 4wd b44 with a 6.5,it had a faliure on the board so associated sent me the new tc spec v2.since that time i switched a stock class and have had nothing but problems with cogging down low,i was told by a ae driver that the new escs are really senstive to settings and gearing,also if you tie your sensor cable to your power wires that can cause a cogg also,so i rerouted my wires and sensor cable and i have a very very slight cogg every blue moon,i have only raced my truck once so far so i still have some testing to do with gearing and boost settings,i know this a mod only esc but i got it for free and i might as well use it,i always like lrp products due to they are easy and simple and no need to carry a lap top around with you.lrp/associated have awesome customer service,i know this is a onroad forum but you guys are the only ones discussing the new lines of speedos.im running a tekin 17.5 with this speedo,any of you have a good setting for stock motors?i could use it for a base set up

What I can say already now: the SXX StockSpec Version2 has the possibility to be updated (though optional USB interface) by yourself.
The software we used at IIC is not production Version2 but a development software (called "Pre V2 Stock"), but it allows users with this software to update these speedos to full production SXX StockSpec Version2 software once it is available.

Also, the already released Version2 speedos (80905 + 80955) are not meant for stock racing, their profiles are designed for modified racing!
Cheers to LRP, finally something different to expect.... Hopefully, we're able to update our existing Stock Spec speedos at a fraction of costs / time.... Or perhaps pit support / esc upgrade during some of the international races eg. TITC, IIC, Reedy, etc..?

Has anyone run this speedo with 1s Lipo and 6.5 x12 motor? Looking for speedo setting and Aprox rollout for indoor carpet? Also any point using a reciever pack?

Thanks

Hi Reto. I suggest you also have a connection available between the speedcontrol and an iPhone. Good luck.

My sxx ss is on its way, I will be running a tc5r with a SPv3 (BOSS) 17.5..

Do I need to start with a low boots # to get the fdr, and then add more boots, to get the motor up to temp?

The boost has to match the FDR. Low boost numbers (2-4) will require you to gear higher (5.6 to 6.0). Higher boost numbers (5+) will require lower gearing (6.0 to 7.2). It's a balance that you'll have to play with between how much of an RPM range suits your track conditions and driving style.

Temp is more of a maximum number that you're comfortable with for the engine brand you have. I'd recommend a motor fan to keep the temp in check. The smaller 3Racing style fans work ok, but the large LRP fan is best if you want to push it more.

This SC is similar, there is a drag brake setting, it is the 4th mode adjustment. Adjustable from 0-10, 0= no drag brake 10=maximum drag brake.

I believe the 4 th setting is handbrake,I need some off throttle break just to set me up for the corner

well i personally would take a high fdr such as 7-8 then run a low punch setting, such as 1-3 and use the boost for the straights...5-7. use the cars gearing and motor for the low end and the speedo for top end. Just watch your temps carefully when setting up. Some drivers do it different so take your pick on advice.
