Hi Burito, I saw Ronald Volker's car at the ets and his speedy has no fan. Is it a tc spec or something else? http://ets.redrc.net/gallery/?nggpage=7
thank you

@pakk: that sounds strange and for sure too long! Which speedo was that exactly (there is no just "SXX"...) and to which distributor did you send it for repair?

@ark: this is a standard SXX TC V2 in Ronald's car.
For indoor races some drivers are lazy to mount the fan as the SXX TC V2 can work without if all is set right even in modified, but it's at it's limit and I keep reminding the guys that cooler is better and that they should install the fan... for outdoor the fan is a must have!

@M3dreamin2008: yes, the SXX TC V2 (80955) is the right speedo for you.

I sent in an SPX for repairs. I was told it was not repairable. Then I was given the option to upgrade to any of the SXX line. Every time I email/call, I get that they should be in next week.

just bought a sxx tc v2. I went to race with a LRp X12 8.5 and after 2 laps the motor stops. I have power to servo just no motor. It was blinking yellow and red. I changed the sensor wire and still nothing. Then i put in my old SPX with the same motor and wire and it worked great!
What going on!!?

After suffer many stops, I found that LRP sensor wire or connector is poor. Wire can be putted too easy, so I think makes bad connection between motor and speedo, so stops with motor failure (leds blink at same time).

Solution: put an Orion sensor wire and enjoy

Will the stockspec profiles work on the regular TC spec ver. 2?

Remember:

Red and yellow blinking at same time -> motor failure (change sensor wire)

Red and yellow blinking alternate -> battery cut off

So I have a SXX TC V2 in my mod 12th running a LRP4.0 motor with works 12.0 rotor. Cant seem to get much power out of it. Played with gearing and profiles a bunch and it just doesn't seem right... Have chatted a bunch with Keven and he's had me try a few things. Somethings not right... Had a SXX V2 in it as well and it was just as bad. Both speed controls if I turned up settings or geared up it would start shutting down a few minutes into a run. Power and steering. Starting to think my 4pk is the problem.

Has any one run into issues with a FAST system and single cell??? Down on power or cutting out???

Nationals is two days away and i'm going nuts trying to get this thing going right... There must be some Voodoo I need to do or know! lol

Thanks,

Kody

I use the 4pk and not had any problems. Let me know what speedo settings and gearing you are using and I can try and help.

I too use a 4pk and not had any problems. Make sure you set your ETA to 100% and then recalibrate this was my only fault from my 1st experience in EP and then it was a blast.

Tire size is always around a 42.5 starting off. 96 spur and have been from a 23 to 27t pinion with diff speedo settings. I think when running a 26 pinion I started with 0-5-4-4. Also geared down per Kev's recommendations and ran 0-7-4-3. Went all over with boost setting trying to get power.

Any ideas will be much appreciated Paul!

Thanks,
Kody

Issues with motor or lipo, diff too loose ?

Also use a 4pk, and can't imagine a 4t motor not having more than enough rip

Ran a MurfDogg 4t this weekend, and it was silly fast, with a Tekin RS and no boost on Dual Mode.
