Passionate – Speed Passion Gran Turismo LPF ESC

Speed Passion Gran Turismo LPF ESC

The Speed Passion name is around in the scene for some time now, making itself popular especially with the Competition R range of Modified brushless motors used by World Champions like Surikarn C. or Marc Rheinard. After the initial success of the motors it was only logical to develop a line of suitable brushless speed controllers.

First up SP the Gran Turismo and Feigao ESC for all 1:10 scale needs with a small footprint, low weight and high specs. From the beginning the Gran Turismo speedo was designed especially for all high current applications such as on- and off-road racing with low turn high power Modified motors (down to 2.5T). A bit later the more spec racing oriented Feigao was dropped in favour of the new Gran Turismo LPF which uses the proven Gran Turismo architecture and footprint – different from the Feigao.

All inclusive
The Speed Passion Grand Turismo LPF V1.1 ESC comes as of the most complete sets we have seen so far. Not only the speedo itself is included in the handy package but also an optional fan, a set of wire, an optional power capacitor, cable ties and double sided tape but also an external programming unit that allows for hassle free adjustment of the 11 software parameters instead of the almost unloved counting of beeps and LED signals associated with other products on the market.

As you can see from the pics the LPF is a purposeful looking item with a low profile heat sink and external solder taps for easy handling when attaching or changing wires. With its relatively low stance (18mm w/o fan and 30mm with fan) it will find its place even under tight Pan Car or off-road body shells.
