I will have to try that myself...yes, it is kinda extreme (everything max out) but I think I have quite alot of motor and ESC that I can try to blow up. Or...I can win with that setup.

Hi folk's,

I currently run a TC with SP 2.1 ProStock ESC/13.5 using the 323 software. My club want to run a few races with no turbo/boost. Is there a way to disable it in 323 or do I have to load in the 'blinky' s/w?

Thanks for any info

You have to load the blinky version called 508_no_timing onto the ESC. The ESC will have a blinking RED LIGHT showing it is running the no timing software.

Turning off all the timing and boost on 323stock does not make it a no timing software....

WOW, thanks Solara for the very quick reply!

I thought that would be the answer, nevermind.

Cheers

Usually I run 150acc, 2k start. But for some weird reason, the motor didn't get hot so I tried more aggressive. I run one 30mm yeah racing tornado fan behind the motor. This was on a flowy track, gooped with vht I believe and we ran sweep 40 og.

I am running Cirtix Club Sport and MMM 13.5T in my 1/5 rc bike. These are the ruled electronics for the 2012 RC Bike Worlds.
Bike is TT SB-5, preparing for the Warm Up (May) and Worlds (August) to be held at Road Race Riccione, in Italy.

I kinda read all posts regarding the sensor boards on the MMM motors but I have a couple of questions:
Motor came with red sensor board (+20).
If I change to Green sensor board (+30) does it mean that when I move endbell to +20 it will be +30 with this board?
Also there's a +40 board, does this mean at max it will be +40 and lowest +30 or +20?!
Will it be dangerous (temp-wise) for the motor, considering the main race will be in the end of August at a very hot area. Right now, with stock red sensor board, temps are around 40-45C, ambient 18-21C.
Motor space in the bike chassis is really tight to add cooling fins, but a small ESC fan could be squeezed in the chassis somewhere to try and blow some cool on the motor...

Any insight will be much appreciated!
TIA

In touring car, that is unnecessary, especially on a flowing track. You would probably find that the car is faster with more conservative settings, since the motor is probably bogging down with "too much timing, too soon" in the powerband.

Maybe, I tried more conservative settings when I just got the motor and this motor just didn't seem to like it. It was heaps faster with aggressive settings.

The RED board that came with MMM motor is +10 (not +20). +10 that means 10* and more...= +11 to +20* timing on motor can.

If mounting the Green board, that is +20* = +21 to +30*
Yellow board . +30*= +31-40*
Blue board. +40* = +41-50*

I really don't think you can take that much timing for your RC bike especially if you are running the MMM 13.5. I think the GREEN board (21-30*) is the most that you can use on your bike and for the no timing 13.5 MMM motor...

The +30 and +40 board are very good option for the 17.5 and 21.5 motor.

P.S...US customer/drivers, we are waiting for the official approval about these sensor, they are not available in USA for purchase....yet.

Thank you very much for the detailed explanation.

Actually, the Cirtix CS and the MMM 13.5T motor are the only electronics allowed in Stock class for the RC Bike Worlds for '12 and '13, besides some other limitations (weight limit, no front brake etc).
There is also a Nitro class and a Superbike class, which is open, meaning everything is allowed, as long as it's a "540-sized" motor!
Last year at Lostallo, the SBK's ran up to 120 km/h (75 mph), Stocks up to 80-85 km/h (50-52 mph) and Nitros about as fast as the Stock.
And after all this talk about sensors, I think it's not allowed to change the sensor that came with the motor!!!!

Default GT V2.1 EX Brushless ESC - Carbon black suitable for off road

Is the GT V2.1 EX Brushless ESC - Carbon black suitable for off road my best choice for a b44.1 mod. running an LRP x12 6.5T. And do I also need to buy the fan and lcd pro card to hook it up to my laptop. Is there any other leads or parts I'll need to buy that don't come with it.

The GT 2.0 Pro is the top ESC Speed Passion sells at this time. The one you mentioned is really good, but since you said "best" I'd say the 2.0 Pro would be the one.

Solara, I was watching F1 last night and saw a Reventon in the parking lot and it linked a thought...

Will the Reventon be TCS/ROAR legal? Reason I am asking is, what is to stop someone from having a friend/family member/"pitcrew" change settings mid-race(while the driver is concentrating on the race? (example, I need more boost later in the race, or I need to conserve power or I can change timing because my esc temps are much lower than expected)
