Hi,

Is there a difference between setting the brake force and reverse force to 100% then just reduce the EPA of the transmitter versus setting brake force at lower value on the esc (e.g. 50%)?

Other words, should I try to approximate brake strength first on the ESC setting then fine tune with EPA?

Or set at ESC 100% then just tune with EPA?

Thanks in advance.

If you have time, please use the standard modify FW such as 090205 to test.
To confirm it is not a hardware problem.

Salton,

OK I'll give that FW a try and let you know what happens. I can try it on the bench tonight and on the track on Friday.

Cheers,

Nick

Hi guys

Just a little note to clarify some info about the V3 as ive been getting some complaints from europe that customers are awaiting for the release and holding off from buying excisting products .

Now the V3 is a long long way away not even in production stage then there is months and months of testing so if your waiting on the v3 in the next few months dont bother as you will be wasting your time .

Now the bluetooth unit is not built in to the esc it will be similar to a fail safe unit in size and will work on all xerun esc's no matter what model so its not a built in unit its external .This is to cater for the customers who have existing esc's and will be an option .so for example if you buy a v2.1 120 amp or 60amp,xtreme stock the bluetooth unit will be an option and will plug directly into these units and more .

so dont hold out from buying as the bluetooth will be an option that can be used on all esc's available.Its not only for the V3 unit.

ok thank you for your time

regards Angelo

I've tried both ways of setting maximum brake and honestly I didn't feel any difference.

So I just leave it at 100% and then play with EPA.
