Once they are all completed it will only be one STOCK1 software used for 3.5T to 21.5T...

We are having 2 teams to work on boost MOD and boost STOCK, once they are completed, we will merge them into 1 final STOCK1.

1st stage of STOCK 1 software testing is completed...my Schumacher cannot survived the power of the boost 4.0T with 72mph speed..after blew up 2 rear diffs, 3 rear belts and 2 sets of tires blew up, I ran out of parts and that was with only 2 packs of batteries run....afterall, I can't handle MOD, period, I am slow....

Brought it home after the race was over went to take it out of the default mod 0 program to put into stock mode and again i've lost everything but steering.

I tried returning the ESC back to Mod 0 and now again I get nothing, just steering.

I've been programming esc's with castle links hot wires everything and have never ever had an issue.

I've calibrated after program changes, turned off both turned them back on DONE EVERYTHING and I get nothing.

I consider myself RC savvy and computer savvy and have very good common sense if I thought that changing programs was going to stop the esc from working I would have never tried. But we're required to have our esc's in blink mode to race.

Please do contact our office and I will personally test your unit and try to see the problem...We had problem like that for the EARLY stage of ESC that was not for production and I think it is the software problem.

Please accept my apology for this matters...

I have a GT 2.0 Pro the I switched over to from the Hobbywing V3. It was a lot faster using boost from the GT Pro than the V3. The only way this thing is coming out of my car is...the Reventon Pro. I can't wait.

any tips on timing board selection for stock 17.5 blinky for 1/12 and touring Solara?

Also, what advantage to do I get by going to a revention R versus the GT2.0 LPF in blinky touring? The BEC appears to be better in the GT2.0 LPF versus the revention R?

Come on...I am trying to save you money by not breaking your BD7, you saw the aftermath of my Schumacher after the Stock1 with 4T motor...I bet your YOKOMO parts are 3X more expensive then my Schumacher.

I will get your account setup....

Reventon R has better brakes and smaller footprint then LPF....the output should be very similar as they are BLINKY.

You are running indoor carpet track..? How big..? Please specify...

Hey Howard, with the release of boost timing for mod coming shortly, what is there to stop someone from using it on say 17.5 and what would be the problems if they did.

I have a bag big enough of parts. Don't worry about it. If my tape doesn't rip off and the car stops traction rolling I won't have to worry about it.

We will have a RELEASE NOTE for telling customer NOT to use it for 10.5 and slower motor....it has very slow LOW END to mid range and will suddenly SHIFT to 80,000 rpm...and it will cog.

Two tracks, one is 50 x 50, the other is probably 60 x 80 possibly, maybe longer.

Thanks for any help you can give. Want to order the timing boards to try, just don't want to have a bunch laying around that don't get used lol.

Also, how much of an advantage do you see using the 1 cell 17.5 versus the stock 17.5 for the Competition V3.0 motors?

12th scale...I know you need to run the sivler red 12.5mm rotor...but not sure about roll out...you can ask around and use the general roll out for blinky 17.5

For TC...32* timing (full left, yellow board)...gear at 4.6 and check motor temp...and that is for MMM 17.5 and you should also stock the GREEN BOARD just incase motor temp is too high (when using yellow board)...

1cell 17.5 is definitely faster/better then the regular V3 comp....MMM 17.5 is the best, and it is base off the 1cell 17.5 years ago.

The fatter rotors those give more punch right? would the TC benefit from it as well?

I wish there were more 1 cell 17.5's around but will certaintly be happy once I get the gearing set for the MMM. This weekend, TQ and 2nd qualifier (me) were both running the 1 cell 17.5 with very different set ups. I am running the stock board at max timing with an 86mm roll out. The TQ (by less than half a second) was running the +20 board at minimum with a 103mm roll out. He tried to gear down a bit for heat 2 but turned up the timing to much and ran it past 200 degress. It smelled funny but once it was cool ran the exact same as it did in the first heat during the main. Overall, great motors and like I said, I wish I had more.
