Default a little help setting up a M8

Hey I know this been said already. I've looked.

I'm just trying to reset up my radio.

So here what I'm asking.

before I set up my DR EPA EXP

Where should each be set on the radio(initially) before I adjust everything.

I've heard I should set my DR at max my epa at max then exp.

I don't think this is correct. if curios this is for setting for a touring car.

I should know this already. but I've had a friend set it up for me. I need to learn this for myself.

I've always just cleared the model and gone from there.. You can crank the dual rate up to 150% and then adjust your sub trims, end points, etc. I think that's the only thing that will make a difference, you want full DP before you set your EPA; otherwise you can turn your DP up more and screw with your end point.

First off, set all adjustments to zero. Then program receiver and ESC to radio.

Sub Trim is to center the servo before you make any steering adjustments.

EPA - increase to the point where the steering reaches the maximun turn for left then adjust right the same way. Don't over increase because you will stress the servo saver and drain battery more than needed.

EXP - usaully decrease to make steering less sensitive when you first start to turn the steering wheel. When going down the straight it is not so touchy at high speed (easier to drive). Decrease (-) on tracks with long straight, increase (+) on tracks with short straight.

Go to www.rcdocuments.com and download the owner's manual for free.

Hope this helps. If you need more help let me know.
