I am going to run this speedo in 17.5T boosted TC class, and I am currently trying this setup: SP 323 + SP V3 17.5T

I am running med-high traction carpet on a small & technical layout. With the above setup it feels kinda dead on the bottom end. It is decent on the straight, but in the infield not much is going on, until all of the sudden a massive burst of power comes into play. This makes it very difficult to drive. It feels like an on/off switch with a big delay.

Any ideas?
That setup is designed to do exactly as you describe. In the setup notes, you can see that we were on low grip asphalt. The bottom end was softened to help keep the car from getting loose coming on power out of the corner.

Let us know what motor you are running and I can try to give you a better starting point for running on carpet.

Jimmy

Hey guys, I have a 10.5 V3 motor with bad sensor board.

The motor cogs when it starts going. Unplug the sensor cable and it works fine. Plus the LED on my Tekin RS shows that only 2 sensors are being picked up.

Where can I find a replacement sensor unit ASAP? I looked into ordering from SpeedPassion, but they aren't in stock in the US. I've even tried eBay, but it'd be shipped from Hong Kong.

Any chance we could get Andy Moore's settings from IIC? He used a HPI Pro Flux 17.5t

Can you borrow one from other and give the software another try....? The software itself has zero problem since day one...look like it is your LCD box acting up.

For now...yes. But I have tested the +30 and +40 and they are the secret weapon for the no timing class...especially with the MMM motor.

It is on order and I hope I can get them release by the end of the month. But still, I have to submit them to ROAR, IFMAR and EFRA get approval first.
