Okay here is the problem with the ESC. I spoke with Shawn at Speed Passion today and he told me to try it with a 2s battery pack and see if the ESC is gets enough power that way. Of course with the 2s battery one try and it works without a problem. Now I need to use this ESC in a 12 scale so I canít use 2s battery. With the 1s pack I also have a Novak Booster and it doesnít work. Anyone got ideas what to do.

I have two of these systems and have had no programming problems at all.
Both systems on Spektrum one a DX3R and a DX3S.

And the p/n on the Program box is SPESCPB01.
Allows you to set Drag Brake, ABS Braking and disable the Thermo protect.

Tiko, I have been following your issues with your Cirtix esc/motor and I'm concerned about this battery issue that you mentioned. My club does'nt have the Cirtix esc/motor combo yet ( we hope to get it sometime this summer) but I'm worried now because we all use the SMC 25C 1 cell lipo packs in our pan cars with a booster; and from what you seem to be saying, that will not work with the Cirtix unit. I hope there is some other answer as that will completely screw us up if we have to go and buy all new 2 cell lipo packs in order to run. As you know most of the new 1/10 pan cars on the market such as the Associated 10R5, etc are designed specifically for 1 cell lipo packs; same with 1/12 scale.

Shawn or anyone have any answers? I'm really bummed about this development.

Last two days I have probably tried over a hundred times and it wonít work. Thatís why I decided to call Speed Passion today and ask them if they had this type of issues before with the 1S battery pack. The answer was NO because most people use it in TC.

Well I am a little bummed about the ESC issues. Now, what I need is to find out which receiver pack to get that would work with this ESC. I need to find the smallest receiver pack for the 12 scale car. As for the 1S Novak Booster it works perfectly fine with the other ESC's. I have tried it with the LRP SXX, Novak GTB and few others. Unfortunately this ESC wonít work unless I connect a 2S battery pack to it. I donít plan on putting a 2S pack in my R5 anytime soon. Iím hoping that I can find a solution for this problem soon.

I think the ESC specs are quite clear that the speedo is intended for 2s lipo, with no mention of being able to run with 1s. What made you think you could do so?

As for receiver packs, the Team Epic Li-Fe receiver pack is very popular. It is cheap, small, and light. However, I don't know if this is going to fix your problem or not.

Well TJ one of our local carpet tracks is starting a series that requires a spec ESC/motor combo and this unit was the one that they chose. There are about six to seven guys that already signed up for the class and theyíre all using it I assume. I just haven had a chance to meet anyone so far when Iím at the track to see how theyíre using it. The owner of the track said that I have to use it with a receiver pack so Iíll give that a try. Thanks for the info on the Li-Fe receiver pack.

Gotcha. I would like to think they would have researched the feasibility of running it with a 1s lipo before pulling the trigger, but you never know. The manual says it can be run with 4cell NiMH (4.8v) but doesn't say anything about 1s (3.7v).
