Any help would be grateful these are my settings :-
LRP X12 fully retarded (4 dot insert)
T. Delay 0.1
Ramp Rate 2
Start RPM 5443
End RPM 20000
Throttle Profile 5
No Drag Brake
Temp after 5min run 160 F
It looks a really aggressive set up but had to be done to keep up. Incidently brakes were very poor. (On 100%)
i think your motor makes way too much revs. revving up the motor takes a lot of energy too. thats what i experienced driving 10.5T indoors with a high gearing like 9.5. when i lowered it to about 6 it was way faster, also more punchy...
This is my setup for a Epic Nemesis 13.5T maybe comparable...
motor timing: 15
start/end: 5500 / 20.000
turbo delay: 0.2
Turbo ramp: 3.0
brake strength:100 on esc, 65 op remote
When i wanted more start punch or infield punch i would add motor timing however this makes the motor too hot, but is very powerful!
gearing down gets the motor more in its designed power range. most of these spec motors just dont like to make this much revs.
with this setup i raced yesterday at our local club race, finished 3rd. 2 guys were running GM ESC's but i had more power in the infield as well as on the straight. however they wouldn't get their motor above 60C.
also brakes were so powerfull i had to put the remoteback to 65,to get a controllable stop.
