Yes, new software is OF COURSE compatible with Windows 64Bit systems too now...
Missed to mention this before.

For all of the non-believers out there, Stock Spec V2 when combined with the LRP X12 motor is NUTS for 13.5 1s lipo racing in pan car. Just CRAZY, with a 1/12 scale set a 50mm of rollout and a 32/80 gearing I clocked it at 45-47mph in a 90 foot long straightaway on Slow Ramp setting 9 (80% boost) with the 2-dot insert in the motor, yet runs at 120-125 degrees after 8 minutes. The troops aren't complaining (they know I'm not cheating) but they look at that thing and it just wows them at how much it pulls them on that short of a straight. Wows me to. Great investment, hope I never need to swap it out.

Well I have a question.....
Can this speedo be used with the LRP X12 9.5turn boosted? And if so, on a large outdoor med. gripped/ mixed layout track, what would be a good starting point for speedo settings & fdr?

Put the boost and torque feel on setting ONE. If that doesn't feel fast enough, turn the boost to setting THREE, setting two (fast ramp) or any other even-number setting will probably burn the hell out of the motor.

+1 stay away from the even numbers on the timing profile. There is no real performance gain and I creates super high motor temps.

Should I increase the timing to ║║ and decrease the pinion to 18T?

New setup:
SXX StockSpec V2 (3-5-7-0)
LRP X12 13,5T (║║║) (65║Celcius) (it has a LRP fan)
chassis: T3, FDR: 7.98 (84/20t)

PS: other racer with same chassis and a GM esc and motor is 0,5s faster
Thanks for any advise
See if you can borrow a friends New Lipo, 50c or higher. Then run your car. I'v never gone higher than feel on 3, boost 7, 4 dot insert, and 5.2FDR! I'm trying 5.6 FDR. Not all lipos are the same and old ones lose punch.


To everyone:
Try slowing your car down to gain time in the infield. Hard to gain much time on the straight. Corner speed isn't always the electrics of your car. Sometimes it's the chassis. I also adjust my chassis for more corner speed.

I ran 5.6 FDR and only laid down two fast laps in the A Heat and came in last out of 8...still faster than all those in the B tho. It's just too punchy. Switched to 5.1 and im right back up to 3rd in the heat. Tho the car felt sluggish it didn't show it in my lap times. It was smooth as butter and I like the ability to pull full throttle and the tyres don't lose traction. Also the ramping it does is quite cool. With this ESC you feel like you are going slow but when next to the Tekins I'm no slower.

5.2 I think might be the best. I didnt try it tonight. Oh, another rule of mine...if you have to run a fan to keep temps down you're not geared correctly. For any track with LrP x12 13.5, SSV2 and good batteries I always start at 5.0fdr and 3331 for small tracks and 3351 for large tracks. I drive quite smooth and dont crash much so when I run 3371 it could be why my temps are low. I also do lots of maintenance on my car too.

Charging at high amps helps punch ALOT too. I do 7-10amps to 8.44 (BRCA max). You would not believe the difference!

Hey Guys

LRP SXX Stock Spec V2 speed control
LRP X12 5.5t Octa Wind Motor

12th 1 Cell LiPo

My local track is very big 8th scale size 72 meter main straight

The car doesn`t have anoth topend speed.Is it possible to use boost on a modified motor(CLEARLY STATES IN MANUAL NOT TO !)as values are designed for stock spec motors.If not would changing to a LRP X12 10.5t stock spec motor + 1s rotor be competitive in a modified class when using boost geared accordingly.

5.5t-6.5t are the most commonly used motors

Hobbywing 1s ESC most commonly used speed control

Regards

Boost it.
Start with Mild boost and a lot of roll.
5.5 is fairly mild for 12th mod, unless it's a tight indoor circuit.
2 dot timing insert will help some also.

The 1s rotor will take away some punch and give more rpm.

Temp esc & motor after 4mins with any new settings.
Ideal is to have esc and motor at about the same temp after 8mins.

Yes, the first Boost setting should be fine with just a 5.5t and 1s setup, always slow-ramp and watch your temperature as you do practice laps a few at a time.
