make sure your reverse force is turned up it will give you alot more brakes

The SP/HW i like for its ease to work on and make changes with the programmer as well as its awesome reliability. In mod i think its one of, if not the best esc available. The SP GT v1 was the first brushless esc i bought and have stuck to them over the last 3 years or so. Seen too many failures and problems with other makes to justify changing.
Bonus is these are the best supported esc's on RCtech
Yeah..i would have to agree the small size is pretty much needed for electronics. I thank you for your honest opinion. I actually used to be a Tekin driver back in the 90's and they were always known for having the most punch, then Novak, and LRP was always the softest. Seems that they still have the same game plan still for Stock.

CHeers Man..i appreciate your unbiased opinion!

Mr Crum is spot on. For your braking, if you like a lot of brakes, make sure your brakes is at 100% and REVERSE FORCE is at 100% as well. (#5 and #6)

Also, mechanically, you can achieve MORE rip and MORE brakes if your change your spur/pinion combo but using a bigger spur. If you can manage getting the same FDR and using the bigger Spur, you will get MONDO brakes. Good luck man!

As I understand it there can be a Stock or Sportsman class, read the race flyer carefully. If itís Stock you can use any software, including the 100422 for example.

If itís Sportsman then you must use a V2.0 with software 508. The list of approved Sportsman ESCs and software is listed on the Roar site, check for updates. I would think/hope the V2.1 with 508 would be added at some point???

http://www.roarracing.com/downloads/...l_ESC_List.pdf

Also as you probably noticed Sportsman forbids RC company advertising, no RC company body stickers or T shirts and such.

Guys, please flame away if Iíve got anything wrong, trying to get ready for the Offroad Nats myself.

Hi guys, used the 422 software last night with my gt2 pro in my tamiya 416WE..at the start of the evening the car had noticable boost down the straight but lacked infield power and lacked acceleration off the sweeper onto the straight, like a fool i didnt jot down my adjustments and where i started in my settings and by the time i found the acceleration,i had lost the boost down the straight as a result and couldnt find what i changed to loose it.. the track is indoor carpet with a straight of 25 meters, below are the settings i ended up with and would really appreciate if someone could point out where i may have gone wrong..

motor V3 10.5 with mecanical timing in the middle ( as supplied )
FDR 6.96

4 start mode 9
9 timing 5 ( 15 degs )
12 sc boost 4 ( stage 3 )
13 sc rpm delay 3 (6000 rpm)
14 sc throttle delay 2 (0.1 )
15 sc punch 2 (-1)

the car was really nice and easy to drive, and although i poled the meeting i feel the software has alot more to offer but at the moment my knowledge is extremly limited with this software, and would appreciate anyone elses input.

thanks in advance
mark

Try this.
9/7
12/6
13/1
14/2
15/2
FDR-6.5

That should put hair on your chest with a good amount of rip.

Hi guys,

Tried the 422 software for the first time last week. Im running a LRP X11 on 4 cells on a track with a long straight.

Currently im running:

9 AMTS: value 5 (15 deg)
12 SC boost: 2
13 SC RPM delay: 1 (4000rpm)
14 SC throttle delay: 1
15 SC punch: 2

Im running 75mm rollout and the car is very fast on mid and high rpm's, but lacks a little bit in the bottom end. Gearing shorter doesn't do the trick, it actually looks like the punch decreases.

Any suggestions?

Again...I did not tried this but I am going to try this on a 125x275 track this weekend, it is nothing official. Here is the setup I will use with a 4T motor - final drive, I would definitely start at 10, I don't really know cause I have not run MOD in years nor mod with SC.

(4) 7
(9) 4
(12) 3
(13) 9
(14) 5
(15) 4

Thumbs up

a buddy at the track installed the 422 software in my GT 2.0. i had to write down the rest of the control settings(12-15) from SP.com because the original box only reads up to 9. i said what the hell it still isn't going to be faster than my tekin rs. i hooked it up to my old corally rdx and soldered a 2008 orion vortex 17.5 motor to it. as soon as i put the car down, the car went like a bat outta hell!!! i'm glad i didn't get rid of the GT2.0. now it's just as fast as the tekin rs. with the right gearing and programming it could be faster.
