PC and you need to follow a few sequences when installing depending on your OS. Mine runs fine on Win 7 64. Castle's site has the specifics for install I believe.

Netbook dude, your not a true EP guy without one....j/k. Can you believe a laptop can be cheaper than a cell phone (well Smart Phone w/o a contract).

Yeah, pretty inespensive. Ive been looking around for one. Maybe castle will make a software version that allows you to program from a smart phone...id try that.

I am not looking to buy another 1 Cell MMP, but I found this on eBay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/CASTLE-CREATIONS...ht_1431wt_1136

This is a very good deal w/o coupons or codes. So if your in the market for one jump on it! Hope I am able to help a fellow RCTech member.

I put a MMP into a Tamiya Evo IV touring car with a Tekin Redline 4.5. I'm looking at using this for a parking lot basher (top speed) and wanted to know how much I can advance the timing. Currently I have it set to 18 degrees at 10K + rpm and the temps are around 120 degrees F. How far can I go? With my current setting I'm shooting in the dark. I know I should be concerned with temperatures. Thoughts? Suggestions? Does anyone have a good set up for top speed?

If you are looking at going fast in a straight line. I would start with a FDR of around 7-8. Then I would slowly increase the timing until you are getting the motor to the 150F mark. If that is still not fast enough try lowering the FDR, but watch your temps. The 4.5 is fast without timing, with timing it should launch you into outer-space.

Honestly, the 4.5 seemed fasted without any ESC timing but, maybe it was my perception.

What RPM range are you using. I wouldn't start until 20K-25K based on what the motor is suppose to spin. The other thing to think about is that as you get get close to the 80K-90K RPM you are approaching the physical limit of the rotor. The only rotors rated for more are the motors that come from castle. I have a 9000kv motor from castle and well, I don't use it for anything as it is just too fast to be controllable. I thought about putting in my TC and then running it in a drag, but I can get a 17.5 with timing to do 55 MPH so, I am thinking that going 70-80 MPH or more with a TC well that is just too much. Its fun, but I am sure that it would be short lived as at that speed something is bound to give.

I think I have it starting at 12K. From what you're saying, that is too low. I will set it higher.

for 1/12 scale usage, is it possible to still use the regular MM Pro? I am assuming the man issue was its size.

For 1/10 WGT, should be straight forward as well, no size concern?

And anyone got pics or links to pics to the standard MM Pro mounted in a 1/12 and WGT Car?

Ditto! My next 2 projects are a CRC 1/10 and 1/12 with the MMP in the 1/10 and the MMP 1cell in the 1/12. I would love to get some electronics layouts.

currently, I now using MMP 1 Cell version on my R12L3

found interesting as the battery on one side and the MMP on the other side (T-Bar version 1/12)

so far seem very good.
just feel a bit trouble need to add a booster for my servo / receiver

I really love the MMP smooth performance on 1 cell

need to call castle, got a message that the field programmer is backordered, really wish they would have that posted when you order. Now have to see if I can get a castlelink ASAP.
