Make sure you are not above 5 feel with the X-12. The higher numbers are for other motors, ie X-11, D3 etc. If your X-12 sucks power, it is due to high settings of feel and boost. Also, you are not getting any heat because your timing is so high, the motor will not get going to generate heat. Good luck.
Tried what you suggested..not fast enough..have to use what i ran...I treid to lower the "feel", but not enough punch..Added some gearing to try and get punch..and way slower..and heaps of fade
Going down in "boost" was way to slow at top end....
Will try fdr 4.97..188.8.131.52..and see...but I do know it will not have enough punch.....
Should i add 3 dot insert to get more "rip"? Its what I did before..
Question..I ran with no fans on yesterday so as to get accurate heat readings with gun..and the motor can, in centre of winds, says its 99deg C..but using the internal temp..the blinky says 5 blinks..What do I use as a guage?
If it running at 99 deg C..theres my fade...
