brand motor /how much timing with 13.5
Rollout on a sweeper type track medium tech.
Throttle/ brake EPA on KO radio. Also do you run throttle punch?
I think that is it.
Uh, I'm not a team guy
I haven't run 12th all summer so I haven't run any of the new stuff yet. My money is on running the new turbo software this winter. It's going to be pretty sweet once I get some more time on it. The new batteries and speedo's are going to totally change what we run IMO.
My motor and speedo settings usually get a stern "you should never do that" so it's important to experiment a little to see what works for you. I was running a Novak 13.5 with full motor timing. We also ran 17.5 at the end of the year with full motor timing. I think that the sensors are reading differently on single cell because you pretty much can't do this with 6 cell and run a bunch of boost.
drag brake (none ever) Tune the car to turn without drag brakes.
nuetral band (10) Feels funny if you go lower
throttle profile (4) even in mod for me...
brake strength (100%) and adjust down on the radio to keep from locking up.
For gearing all bets are off because of the new batteries. My best advice is to gear way down, and go up from there untill the laptimes start to fall off a lot at the end of the run. I was shooting for about 2 tenths drop from the 5th lap to the last lap. The first laps are usually a little high because of traction and a cool motor so I throw those out.
I used to run a ton of punch on the radio but not so much any more. I've been setting the EPA's to 90 calibrating the speedo and then bumping the EPA's up to 100. When I set the speedo like this I can adjust the punch a little at a time to get rid of the dead spot at neutral (it's only there in stock/superstock).
Most important thing is to run the correct tires. Purple or magenta fronts and yellow rears. Just keep an eye on the rears and glue them when they start to chunk. Rotating a few sets of rears helps keep them from soaking up traction and blowing out. Wear with the yellows is not that bad with single cell.
