Guys I need help. I race in the 21.5 boosted touring car class. Until now, I used a HW 120A V2.1 ESC and an LRP X12 21.5 motor.
I race at TFTR in Melbourne Australia, and we are currently using Track 2 Reversed - http://www.tftr.org.au/index.php?p=1_46
My old settings with this setup were -
HW 930 Stock
FDR - 4.8:1
Endbell timing - 27.5 degrees (4 Dot)
DRRS - 4
Boost - 20
Turbo - 12
Turbo Slope - 18
Start RPM - 4,000
Turbo Delay - 0.2 Sec
Timing Acc - 450
LRP Radical motor heat sink and fan on motor
With these settings, I had great infield punch and reasonable top end (not the best in class, but I didn't mind). After a 6min race, the motor temps were around 80 - 85 degrees C.
I have just upgraded to a Reedy Sonic and HW V3 ESC, and just tried the following on the car stand -
Motor - Reedy Sonic 21.5
Endbell Timing - 0
FDR - 5.7:1
Still running the LRP Radical Fan & Heatsink
Punch Rate Switch Point - 5%
1st Punch Rate - 30
2nd Punch Rate - 30
Th Curve - Linear
Boost - 35
Boost Start RPM - 1,500
Boost End RMP - 12,000
Boost Slope - Linear
Boost By Throttle - No
Turbo - 25
Turbo Act - Full Throttle
Full Throttle Delay - 0.2 Sec
Turbo Engage Slope - 24deg/0.1S
Turbo Disengage Slope - 18deg/0.1S
If though I have only ran the settings on a car stand and not on the track yet, I can already tell that bottom end & mid range punch are severely lacking - it feels like 21.5 blinky until the turbo kicks in, and the transition isn't smooth.
Could someone help me with some settings to regain the lost bottom end & mid range, and smooth out the throttle ? This is my main concern at the moment. I want to run fairly conservative overall boost & turbo settings (35 & 25) until I temp the motor properly after a race.
And help would be greatly appreciated. The V3 ESC seems awesome, but the new settings & features are initially confusing.
