Thx all.
Plenty of those on SPEED PASSION website...go check it out.

13.5 is very much the same as 17.5 ESC setup....you just have to use higher gearing for 13.5 compare to the 17.5....ESC setup is very much the same or adjust alittle per your own perference.

I just flashed the esc to 508 no timing. Any suggestions other suggestions for 2wd buggy. Other wise I was thinking of the 205 mod.
Stay away from those old software like 110...

Use 205g if SUPERCHARGER is not something you can take advantage of...otherwise, use 528MOD.

Speed Passion website has plenty of off road setup for you to use.....please check it out.

I was calibrating my radio as I would for the Super Charger firmware. I was setting my Throttle EPA to 95%, calibrate, then put it back to 100%. Using this method would not allow the LED to blink. It started working once I set the EPA back to 100% before starting the calibration sequence.

I'm sure this fixed it, or I must be on some heavy fluids...lol

Sorry for my poor english
Yes...13.5 are the same, just V3 can adjust timing...but V2, you should not adjust the timing...you can gear the same. But depends on which ESC you are using and what software....like TURBO/SUPERCHARGER or not...

Recommended final drive on the manual is for 13.5 motor with standard timing advance...it is for 13.5 motor in general, not necessary for what type of car you are using...

For F1..is that rubber tires or foam..? It really depends on your tires size...I used 1.75" rollout on 13.5 before...but you have to really check it out yourself.

Anyone got a suggestion?
(1) Try 528MOD software if you want supercharger...otherwise, use 205G....using 528STOCK on 9.5 is a risk, you need to know what you are doing...

(2) Checkout speed passion webiste, you can try some 10.5 setup and gear down by 1-2 tooth and check temp.

(3) If using supercharger, I would think gear at 8 or so on final drive.

Seriously...that is good to know.

Since you are doing NO TIMING software...yes, there is no reason to use 95% and back up to 100% TURBO/SUPERCHARGER throttle EPA setting like when we are using 528STOCK or 528MOD.

Good luck....

Did run quite a few runs on sunday with 528STOCK using Marcos.J settings for 13.5 asphalt. FDR was 6.56. Motor temp was never above 65c and esc was just about cold to the touch.

The car felt like it had good punch in the start but lacking some midrange and top speed. Was hoping to beat my old personal best from when running tekin rs and lrp 9.5.

One of the design for club spec is.....we don't want it to be able to connect to any computer for TRUE SPEC racing. One of the rule on USVTA is, no computer or software upgradable ESC....Club spec is exactly one of those ESC that the USB interface will not be able to work. It is not something we cannot do on the ESC, it is something we are trying to do purposely so it can work with the true SPEC ESC rule.

You use only the plastic LED box for the club spec ESC adjustment.
the plastic box is what i tried to buy and al said this one is better so know i have a adapter and a usb wire that i cannot use at all
