I recently purchased a new X0-1 and had the ESC unlocked but the RC still seems very slow !! I have the 34 pinion and spurs to match but they have done little to increase the speed !! Any ideas ???
are you running 11.1v lipos?
Yes i am...11.1 5000mah 45c x 2. Do you think dis enabling the Torque will help ?? Or changing the timing ??? Even though I have unlocked It via Iphone and receive the email telling me it was successfully unlocked, how do I know it really is ?? This has me stumped !! My E-Revo is faster :-(
Maybe the esc thinks its going in reverse, which would only give 50% power.
jws is right, maybe your leads are hooked up wrong from the motor to the esc
How many packs have u run through it? Many the motor needs some more run time to break in. My summit is almost 2x faster than the gf. I have probably ran 30+ packs were she has barley run 10
mine right out of the box went 52 mph
I have a number of Castles so do you think it might be one of the other issues I mentioned ???
3rd pack by the way and these are new ones I am trying with the same result ????

If you have a bunch of castle stuff, then I'd start swapping parts out to see if you can isolate the issue. It has to be either the motor or speed controller.
^^agree with jws
I have 3 other 2200kv combos but just presumed the 1717 big block would blow the 2200kvs ESC.
Ill ring technical support.
Ive done one of my E-Revos up for speed and speed only and after $$$$$$$ and months of work I got it up to 150kpm !!! But the XO-1 is supposed to do more than 180kpm !!! Surly its motor and ESC make a huge difference !!
