Hi guys, i need some help from you BMC experts. i just started getting back into electric TC after a long pause and BL and Lipo is rather new to me. sSo hopefully some of you can help.
little bit about what i am running currently. the car is a TOP Photon, LRP X11 13.5 and obviously a BMC with Drew Ellis. i am running into temp problem with my motor.
here is a list of temp i am getting with my gearing. The internal ratio is 2.0.
84/37 - 180F (1st profile timing 5 instead of 6, ok fast, lack punch) (FDR 4.54)
96/40 - 200F (1st profile timing 5 instead of 6, very fast, very punchy) (FDR 4.8)
now here is my basic understanding of BL, the higher the timing the higher the temp and i should keep it around 150F. that's the reason for timing 5 instead of 6.
i tried other gearing and it's not helping to lower my temp. i've bump into this site here
, the site doesn't have the Photon listed but i use the Yokomo MR4TC BD with the same internal ratio as the Photon, and it's suggesting a FDR of 6.25 (100/32).
i have a friend also with a Photon with the same LRP X11 13.5, the only difference is that he runs a LRP speedo, i am not sure the model. his gearing is 100/44 or 100/46, it's in that range but i couldn't remember exactly. His temp after 6 min is in the 150F range.
oh, i am running carpet rubber
what am i doing wrong? please help!!!
