I am new to TC racing and I would appreciate any help setting up my RS for a 17.5 Tekin Motor. I raced for the first time in a rookie stock sedan class and I noticed two things that did not feel right:
1.) braking seemed much weaker than other ESCs I have used just bashing around. Not bad, just not STRONG like my old Keyence (brushed with 19T). I really only needed to use them hard coming off the straight into the second turn (tight).
2.) Acceleration or "punch" off the corners was not there. Seemed really soft to me. This is my first brushless so is that normal for a brushless compared to a brushed motor? Top speed was there though, never got passed on the straight - in fact I made a pass. I think I felt that boost come on....
For racing context (if this even helps), track was 120'x ~45'. Prepped parking lot. Air temp 100, track temp 150. Motor was 161 at 5 min. I started 5th, ended 4th of 9 cars, soooooo it was not bad, just did not feel right.
Here is my setup for the speedo:
RS (not Pro) v198 code, sensored only
Drag Brake: Off
Rev Strength: 100 (should I set this to 0? Could it affect performance?)
Brake Strength: 100
Neutral Width: 56 (Is this too much? I donít think I touched this setting)
Motor Type: BL-FW
Throt Profile: 3
Volt Cutoff: 6.220
Push Cntl: off
Car: XXXS-G+, 17.5 Tekin motor (box stock timing), 90/35 gearing or 4.71 FDR. (is this too tall? too short?)
Batt: TP 40C
Radio: Airtronics MX-3 AM
Any opinions, thoughts, or advice would be most appreciated!!!
