i am alittle confused at the moment trying to catch up on technolagy not raced TC for 4 plus years

thanks
What software are you using? What motor are you using?

If you are using non-boost software then your ratio is about right.

as per the setup sheet I have the D3 on 2 notches,

I will drop it back one and try your setup,

Thanks,

With 1 notch off center I would make these changes.....Try taking #4 and go to level 9....take #9 and go to 45deg.....take #10 to 6deg/0.1s....take #12 to 15deg....take #14 to 0s. This should increase the bottom end along with top end.....and gear at 6.7 to 6.5 to start and check temps. Hope this helps some.

down low it is lacking a bit as well,
(perhaps I am overgeared?)

over 6mins motor is coming off max 137deg F.
Is this the track?: http://www.moorebankraceway.com/
If so, how long is the straight?

The D3 setup on the SP site is developed for a much smaller (120ft straight), very tight track style. I dont see those setting working well on a bigger flowing track.

I am hoping to get to our local big track (225+ft straight) soon to develop ESC / Motor setups. As a guess, here would be my big track starting point based on the 528 SW setup I ran last year:

Motor Timing: D3, 1 tick advance
FDR: 5.5 to 6.0 (again BIG track)
DDRS: Level 8
Boost timing: 36
Turbo Slope Rate: 6
Turbo Timing: 18
Boost Start RPM: 5000
Turbo Delay: 0.3s
Boost Timing Acceleration: 500

NOTE: I have not tried the above, so PLEASE check motor temps every few laps to ensure the settings are not way off.

yes that is the track, not sure the exact length of the track,

I will give it a go and see what happens,

Hi Matt,
Yes, the HW LCD programme box works fine with the SP ESC. You can use it to flash the latest SP firmware without trouble.

This is what I found to work well for a track with a 235 foot straight.

Trinity D3 10.5 (1 advance of timing)
Prostock 2.1 528stock
DRRS-7
DTMS Timing-5 (15*)
Supercharger Boost- Stage 8
Supercharger RPM Delay- 4 (4000)
Supercharger Full Throttle Delay- 4 (0.3s)
Supercharger Punch-7 (-6)

Motor Temps came off at 145* with heatsink and fan
Without fan and heatsink temps were 155-162 95* outside

Default Blinking green LED

Hi guys, I have this annoying blinking green led on my v2.0 everytime after a run. The esc is not thermalling and the motor is also not overheating.

I am suspecting that the led is related to a sensor issue. However according to the manual for the problem to be sensorboard / harness related both the red and green leds must be blinking.

Can someone confirm this? I am using a V3 5 turn motor with my v2.0 esc and I do not currently have another motor to swap out and try.

If I turn the system off and back on again the light goes off.
