Its a happy Medium temp between to high and to low at Fastlane. I run 4x4 and am running 145 10.5 Sonic LRP. What motor you running? What radio? You can tweak the radio settings. I tried gearing the 75% down the strait method but these brushless motors have to much get up and go on a short straight. Brushless change my method there, and its all trigger in put now. I'm at Fastlane this Friday and Most Saturdays now. Look me up if you make it out. They call me Racer-X. We probably have met? BTW what is your ESC temping at? My motor at 145 the ESC hovers 85/95. Never hit 100 yet. My ESC Stock Spec. allows you to check temps and will tell you how close your coming to shut off values. If the seeedo is cold you probably don't have a worry.
Hey X, only "seen ya" as far as I know on heartlandrc but have read a few of your posts over there. We have not been up to fastlane yet but were always looking for a reason to try out a new track. Thanks for the answers and here goes.
Radio is a stock AM traxxas
ESC is SXX TC SPEC Modle #80950
Motor is a LRP 10.5 VECTOR sensored X11 stock
Batts Gens ace 5000 MBA 40C 2S
15/90 stock slash gear box
Motor runs 120-130* and the ESC is so cool to the touch I don't bother checking it.
I had it geared up to a 21/86 but motor did run hot 180* after 4-5 mins. Tried combos until settling on this one but nothing lower geared yet.
I got this motor/esc setup second hand an I see on the instructions they are marked like this..
Mode 2 power profile #8
Mode 3 initial brake #4
Mode 4 automatic brake #3
These are past the defaults and I am going to check manualy, this is what is writen down as his settings. Mode 2 the power profile has the timing real high if I understand this correctly, I will back it down to 1
Thanks again everyone
