Mine also done this of you move your throttle EPA where the car wants almost runs forward it takes the dead one away and you will still have full throttle as per normal

Thanks
Will give that a try, not my car or transmiter but I did not think it was correct.

Does anyone have a good starting ratio for the new MMM 13.5 motor hooked up to a Tekin RS ?

Looking for a ratio for a large indoor meeting. Recently been running Duo3 Motors on around 7.15

cheers

Default RMA turnaround times

Hi all:

Quick question...does anyone know a typical turnaround turn for a USA RMA? I want to make sure I'm not pestering people needlessly.

Thanks
Matt

Depends on which item you are doing RMA, please call the SP OFFICE and find out....

Hi Solara, it's been a while and when are you going to stock the secret weapons +30 and +40 sensor boards?

Here in SoCal we mainly run no-timing 17.5 and even the new 17.5 MMM seems to be outclassed by the newer motors out there with higher timing adjustability. I run my 17.5 MMM with the green +20 board at max +30 timing and still having hard time catching others using Reedy Sonic (the most favorite motor currently).

I dyno'ed my friend's Reedy Sonic against my MMM, both at max timing, apparently the Reedy outputs more rpm, and with the right gearing and temperature, it's faster than the MMM. I love the potential of the MMM but feeling that it's very limited by the sensor board design (I believe MMM is designed for mod and boosted, but not for stock no-timing), especially now the boosted class is pretty much dead here.

I'd like to buy the +30/+40 sensor boards if available.

What is your FDR? And what size track are you running on? I haven't had any problems keeping up with my MMM17.5's or the 17.5 1c motors

Racing at TQ RC Racing. Tried FDR from 3.9 to 4.4. Since this is a small and very technical track, a higher FDR 4.4 seems to provide the best infield punch.

Sometimes I race outdoor and a bit more timing would definitely help on the rpm side.

The problem we have is....we are waiting for the OFFICIAL to approve the sensor before we can sell them...

I had been running blinky 13.5 1s 12th scale with a rollout around 80mm and the GT2.1 EX with stock sensor at max timing. (10.2 fast laps)

But then with i installed the green sensor (set at 25*) and I had trouble finding the right rollout to improve. I went down close to 75mm but settled on 85mm because I was turning better laps there but was still slower than when I had the stock sensor installed by .4 seconds!!! ... on 90x36 high bite carpet ...

Any suggestions on rollout??? Did I go the wrong way? Not high enough?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!
