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!
the BRCA max voltage is 8.40v, and they are quite strict on that at National events, so if you plan on doing any Nationals, then I'd advise you to back your charger off a little!
Rule 3.9 LiPo/LiFe batteries may be charged to a maximum of:-
2S Batteries may be charged to a maximum of 8.40v (LiPo) resp. 7.40v (LiFe).
1S Batteries may be charged to a maximum of 4.20v (LiPo) resp. 3.70v (LiFe).
