Oh, How do you set the rpm range? Seem to remember there beeing set values in the program....

Thanks!

Yes, that is with a Touring car. To set the RPM range, there is a "custom" box, you enter your starting RPM, and then select the end RPM. Also, if you are running 1S lipo in your pan car, you may want to lower the RPM ranges, since 1S is slower.

I end up with this setting last race:

MMP profile = CHEAT Mode
Punch control = Disabled
Start power = High
MMP Timing = 50 degree
Throttle = Positive Curve
RPM = Start 7,500 end 13,500
Motor = Novak Ballistic 17.5
Motor Timing = 40 degree
Track size = 100x40 approximate
Chassis = Team magic E4
FDR = 5.6

With this setup I'm as fast as tekins and LRP but for some reason I lost my bottom end.

I'm just looking at at the castle website and they have the CURRENT CASTLE LINK VERSION: 3.254

New software revision today (7-19) includes wheel torque control -- not some wussy "timing delay," but true torque control.

pdelcast,

couple of question:

1. Will the motor produce more over all power with the new firmware?
2. How do you setup the Torque limiter base on the motor KV mainly on stock motor (17.5)?

Cool, will try the new firmware update. So far having pretty good luck with my MMP running 17.5 TC class. As others have mentioned I have more off the line punch than other ESCs.

However I do have an issue someone else might have encountered. After a minute or two of running I keep experiencing what feels like brief power drops and inconsistent throttle response. As I'm coming off a straight into a corner I'll tap the brakes and then jump back on the throttle, but there seems to be a short delay before the power comes back on. Sometimes it does it, others it doesn't. It really has been the one glitch that is causing me to lose races as I am just as fast as others I am competing with, but all it takes is a fraction of a second where the car isn't doing what I want it to do and I'm falling behind. Thought it might be my radio as we have had problems with Futaba's bleeding over the Spektrums signals at the track but it did it to me just tooling around the street in front of my house. Anyone else experience this sort of thing?

This should be really good for the off road guys , as for on road lets wait and see.
Now more timing is it next.

Try running your rpm range at 5000 to 15100 and seen what happens. That is how mine is set right now for a track about the same size as yours. Did you end up faster than before as I know you where looking for a little more speed and it seems with the newer rpm range you getting it.

How hot is your motor getting with this setup? Try my rpm range and see if you see any difference. Maybe try a littler higher gearing like 6.0 or so to get more lowend.

The new software is interesting. Can't run for about 2 weeks but will be ineterested in seeing how it changes things. Do like the new print feature to make it easy to keep track of things.

The new power and torque stuff is interesting as well. Will be nice to mess around with them as well.

I would say Castle is heading in the right direction. Very nice updates to cover a wide range of users.
