- LRP SXX V2 Stock
- ThunderPower 5400 65c
- 13.5 Sonic (stock rotor)

Track size is approximately 80x50 with the average lap times around around 10 to 11 second for WGT. This is for boosted class as well. I have tried some other suggestions from this forum but still haven't found the right setup. The guys running the LRP SXX V2 with the LRP x12 motors are killing me down the straight. They are running 55mm to 58mm rollout.

What settings are you currently using?

I am currently running 0 / 8 / 9 / 4 and have tried 0 /10 / 10 / 0. Would 0 / 10 / 12 / 0 work? Timing in the motor was tested using the stock settings, and now is 35 degrees (mine is the second gen Sonic with the updated timing marks).

I read somewhere that I should be setting this ESC to blinky mode and crank the timing. Then, start adding timing and boost and gear down as needed and watch my temps. Is that a good way to start with these things? I'm fairly new to brushless so any help is appreciated. I bought a second Reedy Sonic 21.5 for my FF03 running on blinky and it runs great with the stock settings.

First thing to know on the stock spec, stick to the even # boost profiles. The odd # ones are slow ramp, and that will make it feel very slow. I would go with 0/8/10/x on the esc, and turn the timing down on the motor to 30*. You shouldnt need a lot of motor timing in boosted, and you might find you could do with even less. You didnt mention what rollout you were at, but I would try gearing up from where you are 2 teeth or so

I started with that gearing with less timing and found the motor really woke up when I increased the timing with less gearing.
Torque is fine on more open layouts although the tighter layouts (12 second laps) I think would be better around 4.0FDR with higher timing. Maybe I will give it a try tonight.

Thanks I will try that. I've been playing with rollout from 65 to 75 while trying to figure this thing out.

Default 10.5, 13.5 and 17.5 in pan car classes looking for some advice

I run 1/12th pan car and WGT10 .
Classes in Uk are 1/12th 17.5 and 10.5 blinky in both looking for rollout and motor timing.
Been told by reedy driver in Uk set up for 10.5 blinky is motor 40 degree of timing and 65mm rollout ????
So looking for the same in 17.5 blinky 1/12th

WGT10 is running 10.5 boosted and maybe 13.5 blinky soon.

Any help txs in advance. Im running both associated cars with the updated LRP SXX version 2 with new boards fitted.

I like 80-105 ish depending on the track and anywhere from 30 to Max timing again depending on track On our local small technical track I am down to 86mm with 36 degrees

Our carpet track is similar in size to that

Most of the Sonic Racers run 40deg with the following roll
17.5: 100 ish
13.5: 90 ish
