Oops sorry for the lack of details
Car is a 235MM pancar(so the Pro10), motor is the LRP X11 10.5.
ESC offcourse the Tekin RS/RS Pro,2S lipo is what we are running,tracks are: hometrack has a 45 meter straight and 2 rather fast corners, a busstop and 3 hairpins.
Here is a impression of the track http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0y00uwKLjoA
Movie is of 2009 with 5 cells 10.5.
Also i am going to run on the bigger tracks(1:8 nitro) in Holland lilk MACH at Heemstede,AMCA at Apeldoorn(where this years ETS was) and more of those.
Some of the guys who run at this class use the HW 120A ESC who has only dynamic timing?.
The grip on the tracks i am going to drive is med to high so when comming out of the corners you can put your foot down if your good enough
For the TC at out track i have hit the sweet spot with the Tekin and LRP X12 13.5
I have run my car agains some mod drivers and had just one of them in front of me.
The rest is faster on the straights but they can't keep up overall
Should i run with turbo or not?
Just with timing or a combination?
All help would be fine.
Running it now like i would run it in a TC, but when hitting the turbo it goes flying
Did gear the whole lot already a bit lower.
I also compared it with running the same gearing with a LRP SPX Stock spec ESC but then the car was to slow and it would build up heat(dunno why)
For now the motor temp is 45 degrees after a 10 minutes run with these setting(tekin).

Also, the big pan cars do not have enough grip for the power we can through at it, so a little over geared helps it come out of the corners.
There is a thread here on RcTEch for the 1/10 scale on road (look in the larger scale/oval link) and you will find more help and info.
