Nice. That sounds pretty reasonable. Pity i've taken my Mamba out for now, but I will try this next time on a practice day. I think i've tried this before but there was a surge later on.

Does the MMP do 1S LiPo? I realize there is a dedicated smaller version, but can the bigger MMP do 1S as well?

Good job screwing your friend buying Ray's truck. I think there is a name for people that do that type of stuff.

Your car needs to handle well with good corner speed to also benefit from the extra rip. Big rip and bad handling car makes for not so good lap times. I found the better I get the car to work the more things fall into place with the speed.
+1. It also seems to me that the FDR you run with the MMP is not the same as tekin, so you cant go by what they are running, you need to find what works for you.

Also, dont try to compare if you have old motor/batteries to someone with brand new stuff (especially batteries), because new packs will blow away packs that are a couple months old, and new motors handle heat much better than older ones

[QUOTE=MoonTrap;7342597]I know what you mean, us racers are impatient and we want the good stuff now


Moontrap, your thoughts have appeared to of been justified.

Judging by Hobbywings new firmware 422 for the Xerun and Speedpassion escs, that can stick with Tekins and GMs in top end speed, Castle need to hurry up. There's been no updates on when this new software will arrive and I might stick an Xerun in my car, as it has more adjustable acceleration features and it's now faster down the straight lol. Those crafty Chinese have produced a missile.

So true, and for $75 for a Xerun 60A (same as the SP GT2 LPF) its a very cheap spec racing speedo, and its a missile like you said... I hope castle has some new software, or i too will need to put in an Xerun

I guess I'll be jumping into the band waggon of HW Xerun ESC for less than $100 I don't mind trying one and see what is it all about.

well the MMP did NOT perform well at all this weekend! there was a small lag when blipping the throttle and the brakes either were non existant or the car locked up. me and the mamba are parting company.... too inconsistant and like an on/off switch even with the punch control on 100%.
over and out....

I have notice that too right now I'm having problem with the MMP to perform consistently but sure it is still a very fast ESC on the track... Too solve the issue is to re-calibrate the ESC to the Radio everytime you make changes on the setting... But man MMP is so sensitive when re-calirating it with Spektrum Radio you have to be right on the radio setting or it will not calibrate and it's pain in the a$$ and irritating when it won't calibrate the first try.

hmm, personally, I'm loving this ESC at the moment!

This weekend was at Mendip for the BTCC, and I have to say, it was faster than the Tekins, and deffiently up there with the GM's. With a 10.5, some of the top mod guys were having difficulty getting by on the straight.. top end really was that far behind, but took longer to get there

Have now found a setup I'm really happy to run with, as follows;

Start RPM; 15,200
End RPM; 30,900
ESC Timing; 35
Start Power; Medium
Punch Control; 0-10%
FDR; 6.89
Motor; X12 10.5t
Motor insert; -10 (oooo)
Motor temp; ~80C
Drag Brake; 0%

Honestly, the car was a rocket... I'm absolutely convinced that this will run with the best this year... and there is still a little left to play with

Rob, I honestly think your little hesitation is coming from the punch control.. there's been a noticeable difference between me and Steve when we ran 10 and 25% respectively... I shudder to think what its like with 100%!
I have noticed sometimes it doesn't calibrate properly if you have put the brakes up to 100% of travel before calibrating, same with the curve needs to be zero. I'm on about 85% brake on stick going round the track (100% in the software), and still get a little wobble on in hard braking areas..

Regards
Ed
