Car ran very well last night.
Our track is about 36 x 90.
I'm running 30 deg advance in cheat mode @ 7500 rpm and it was awesome.
FDR is 4.65
Motor temps stayed around 150f all night.
Plenty of rip and within inches of the Tekins on the back straight.
I need to play around with the throttle curve. It hit a little harsh on the low-mid throttle input. I like a little more butter on the low end. The harshness might have been upsetting the car enough to make me feel a little off all night. It's nice knowing there's plenty on tap.
I did have a strange hesitation on one of my starts. The car rolled gently a foot and then quit for about .5 second, then took off like a bat out of hell. It really brake checked the field and left me a sitting duck. The other three runs I stopped the car and launched it several times on the warmup laps and never had the issue again. Any one else encounter this?
Still very happy. Great value if you can live with the size.
