Can I run the 518 stock software and turn the turbo off and run it with a 5.5t will that be similar to running the 205 software?

forgive me if i sound like a smarta$$, but isn't Razzor's essay coming from a pdf published some time ago at the SP site?
It certainly is useful, of course...

Tested my new XERUN 60A today with a 13.5 Team Powers motor on a 416WE. All I can say is that this new 518 software works! The track crew thought that I was runing a Tekin RSPro.

Settings were as recommended by Hobbywing. After 5 minutes of hard running, I had temps of 140-150F on the motor. Geared at a conservative 6.9FDR, power was excellent on the infield as well as on the track's long straight! you could really see and feel the turbo kicking in!

Congratulations Hobbywing!

I know most everyone here is on-road - but I wanted to point out that the software works very well for off-road as well. I have tested with the 60a and 120a with motors from 10.5 to 17.5.

As it has been described with the HW document, you need to be careful how you program the supercharger or "turbo" feature to kick in, so settings can be slightly different from person to person and track to track (depending on traction levels). But it is a great tool with an extra kick you can notice.

And I recently ran a some heats using a 13.5 in a 10.5 class turning same lap times and speed down the straight.

If I want the Turbo to kick in earlier on the straight, which setting do I first change? Turbo delay? Thanks.

And notice for off-road guys - just opened same tread in off-road section. I think it will be easier for guys like me to find and talk about HW systems in off-road.
