I'm just trying to ind out if it can be done with no damage to the motor. If it can, then what profile?thanks!
It will work perfectly fine. You'll want to use profile 10 for the power profile. Compared to others speedos with rampup timing speedos(spx, tekin etc) you'll have to gear higher because of the lack of extra timing. I have tried both ways in 13.5 and there is really no difference in laptimes as long as you get the gearing correct with both on a duo.
With the new X12 spec motors you'll be perfectly fine with the SXX as the motors are so fast the ramp up timing speedos are not needed. In 13.5 and 10.5 we have found that profile 10 on the SXX and profile 6 on the SPX are as high as you will want to go, any higher and you need to fully retard the timing on the motor and gear down at least 10 teeth. Even then it is still too timing on the speedo.
Hope this helps!
