What Lloyd said...
I was looking this up from Keven Hebert:
"In 1/12, the lrp motor (4.5) is very powerfull so I would start with a mild setup on the esc. I would probably start at 25/96 for gear, and would use 4/0/3/2/5/0/0 for esc (LRP) setting and see how it works from there. The first mode is drag brake I put 4 just as a starting point but this is really a drivers preference and even from motor to motor it could differ so that will need to be adjusted again I would guess. "
Mod 1/12 is tough. The fast guys are running 4.0's and 3.5 with boost now. The batteries let you run wide open for the full 8 min. Make sure your setup is perfect and run the right tires (Pink or Mag fronts and Pink rears) or you will detonate your car.
