what about recalibrating the esc? my KO EX-5UR has throttle EPA up to only 100... should i recalibrate it at stock setting (70) then adjust it to 100 after that? will that help?
Give it a try. I use the Airtronics M11. Default is 100. Set esc, recalibrate transmitter, then turn it up to 140. A dramatic difference all the way up the range.

Definately need to check the temp with a reliable gauge. I thought the same as you with the finger. Was'nt as hot as I thought. Actually your nose is a better gauge It'll let you know if the smoke is about to get out.

Schumacher Racing have announced that their USA office will close at the end of February 2010, after 20 years in Tampa, Florida.

However this is by no means the end of Schumacher’s presence in USA as Schumacher’s biggest dealers in North America have committed to supporting the change and will be buying products directly from the UK head office. This means that the full product range of cars, parts and accessories will continue to be available at major hobby stores.

Schumacher are offering reasonable prices and a UPS express 2 day delivery service from UK to USA. The Core brand of RC accessories will also be supplied in the same way.

Schumacher have some exciting new releases planned, such as the new CougarSV 2wd buggy and look like becoming a stronger force at USA tracks.

We would like to thank the SchumacherUSA staff of Shawn Palmer, Adam Bailey, and Diane Kozolowski for all the hard work they have put in over the last few years and wish them well for the future.”

For North American dealer enquiries contact usa@racing-cars.com or telephone 011 44 1604 790580.

Speed Passion was conspicuous by its' absence from the note there, maybe the 'current' Schumacher group will be keeping hold of the SP Brand in the US? Dunno Adam did say watch this space though......

When they have information to release (which I thought was yesterday) they'll let everyone know and I'll personally drop the info in here for you guys.

Give it a couple days, there's a ton of stuff going on right now

Does anyone have a lead time on the Cirtix motors? In particular the 5500 and 8000kv versions that will be coming later on.

I'm guessing these will be compatible with all current brushless speedo's or there would be much point in releasing them but what about the wind limit on some esc's. Example the LPF has a 5.5t lower limit, could it run the 8000kv motor given that it runs cooler and with less amp draw?

fdr is final drive ratio you need a temp gun to check im runnin about 135 indoors 50 degrees on carpet the re cal on your radio will only make your throttle less linear and wont help do you have the new 107 program in your esc its a little faster than the 110
