What changes are made from software that the ESC comes with and the updates?

Thanks Kevin

we usualy run the 4.0 software for modified in on road but the software that comes with the esc is also suitable for mod as long as you dont go too agressive (past 5) on the 4th and 5th mode. This will be a guess since I have never ran anything less than 4.0 in a 1/12. The esc setting will be quite a bit different from a reedy motor to an LRP, Let me know wich one you have and we can then find a good starting point for timing, gear, esc setting.

Do you think the 10r5.1 will stick around and be supported because the 10r5 was discontinued at one time with no support?

Question for you, how come you and Rick are not running the 10r5.1?
Thanks and God Bless
No Problem you are welcome. Wish you could have made it. Hopefully Next year. I am sure the 10r5.1 will be supported for a while. Like Adrian mentionned I think the 10r5 has is still available, I think there was some confusion and it was dicontinued for some time but is back in business now but I am not 100% sure.

As for not running the car, like Rick mentionned, It is hard to race so many classes at the races and with 2+ class already at major event it is hard to focus on all of them. Althought if they do race mod WGT at IIC I am pretty sure we will run it.

With a LRP flow works esc and reedy 4.0t mach 2 do I have to run a booster or receiver pack? If yes, which one?

I have seen people run without one but it is not recommended and not meant to be. The Esc requires a booster or receiver pack. Like Rick Said the Reedy 307 life pack has been working very good

I have have an 10R5.1 and I think its the best WGT on the market....looks cool too! The 10R5.1 will be supported well like all other AE kits.

Keven and I (and Volker when he races) use the Reedy #307 receiver battery.
Reedy LiFe #307
Thanks Rickdog
