As the Turbo fades away than it is solved with the EPA thing.
As it is not the Turbo but the battery is losing power, than it can be the following.
To much timing ad once.
Timing higher than 60 to 65 degrees.
With Jason his setup you have change that you get a bit of power loss.
I got it and I changed my setup.
After some test on a small indoor track I changed my start RPM. It was about 5000 but I higher-ed it to 8000 and even higher.
This solves a bit of the problem.
I found that when you set the Turbo delay low and the start RPM is also low so that you get the Boost and Turbo quit soon, that you get more fading.
With a higher RPM range it became less.
Motor timing on 0 is not always 0.
With my last setup I had my Turbo delay on 0,3 but I only used a Turbo of 5 with a Turbo ramp of 2.
Turbo ramp on 3 ad the starts makes the motor hotter. It is faster but also than you get more fading.
As you use Jason his setup, remind that you have more timing than normal.
Each time as you give full throttle, you have the Turbo and the Boost wile as you set the Turbo with a delay, you have in the infield less timing.
For instance. As you use the following setup.
Start RPM 5000
End RPM 15000
Turbo ramp 2
Turbo delay 0
On a track were you have your highest RPM ad 30000 and the lowest on 10000 you have and average of about +/- 20000 RPM.
This means that each time you have full throttle you have in 0,5 sec full Turbo and as you reaches the 15000 RPM you have full Boost.
This means that you have from that moment 80 timing in total.
This timing you will have a lot of times on the track wile as you set the setup like this.
Turbo delay 0,5
Turbo ramp 2
Start RPM 8000
End RPM 18000
Than you have later the Boost and the Turbo even later so you drive in the infield with a lower timing.
As the Turbo is used only on the straight you have in the infield max 65 timing.
and each time the RPM comes under the 18000 it's even lower.
Now by using Jason his setup but higher the the start RPM to say 9000 and the end RPM 19000, you also lower the average timing in the infield.
Also do you get less timing in the start when the motor can't handle that much timing so you get more torque ad the start.
This way you make shore that you don't have to much timing in the start, your average timing lowers on the track and you gain torque ad the start.
You have less problems with fading and less problems with motor head.
Also you get more infield rip.
Jason his setup works very well as you don't need to go every corner full throttle.
The power is there when needed with his setup.
