Ok here is how you do the test for the motor. You will need to do this before you can use traction control.
1. Download and update to the latest version of the castle link software, then update to the latest firmware for the MMP currently this is 3.29 software and 1.30 firmware.
2. Once you are all updated you will have the power tab in the castle link software. There is a check box next to torque control that says motor test. Check this box, it will open a window that explains exactly what I am here. Click ok and then click apply. This sends a program to your speed control to collect data from the motor.
3. Disconnect the controller from the castle link. and plug it back into your receiver.
4. Remove the pinion from you motor.
5. Power up you system. (Turn radio on , plug battery in and turn on the controller)
6. Once the controller is powered up then Hold full throttle. This is the test part and the motor will spin for about 3-5 sec and then stop on its own. You will not need to let go of the throttle until the motor stops.
7.After the motor stops power everything down.
8.Reconnect the ESC to the castle link and open the software.
9. You will now be able to adjust the torque control values, 10 is the least amount of torque control. I always start with 10 if this is not enough then move down 1 at a time.
The last time I ran torque control was on a really loose track and I ended up at 7.5.
Let me know how it works.
