Im sure you wouldn't want to do that now would you?
When you say the motor blows, what actually happens to the motor. I've raced electric (brush) from 84-95, then nitro from 95-2009. I know what a nitro engine does when it blows up, but i'm yet to see a brushless let go.

The fun way is to blow up the rotor, but usually if you overheat the coils they weld themselves together and short out.

A Mass smoke ball emits from underneath your bodyshell, you can tell your motor is about to cook when you have excessive drag brake from the motor if you didn't have any dragbrake set into the speedie. That's what happened to mine.

For me you are using a little bit too much AMTS value...i suggest you to start with something more around at 15 and reduce a little bit your FDR (may be start at about 7,0 but depend on your track size)

Forgot to say i use the endbell timing over the motor a little bit less than +10 (i can say at about +8)

Bye
ok . I have tested the +10 timing on the motor but the temperature is the same.

Try the beta supercharger softwares, you'll have more high speed and less motor temp.
If you're in Monteux on sunday then I could update the software in your speedo.

Hello! Why some of Top Team Drivers remove the gold contacts from ESC, and and solder the wires like on LRP Sphere?

2 reasons come to mind:

More efficient/ less voltage drop as there are less solder joints
Less chance of a bad joint or if they get hot unsoldering and coming off mid race.

Its hard to see why anyone uses them actually.

And how they solder wire in ESC? I can see what the holes it's to small, and I cant insert the wire to the hole...

You probably just need to clean out all the old solder so the holes are back to the original size.

I will eventually play around with the Supercharger 230/231 software, but what is the best non-supercharger firmware for a 17.5 Touring Car? Thanks...
