4 of my friends using Tekin esc and 10.5T Tekin motor but myself using HW120a and Team Power 11.5T motor. We are using the same car Xray T3.

The track is semi technical with 60feets straight line. Pickup is better than Tekin even do his ratio is lower than Tekin. Motor temp 141F without fan. The best part is my motor start roar a sound of a lion same as Tekin and it never happened before.

My car come out a bit fast from Tekin but early 30feets manage to leave Tekin by measurement of 7 cars but Tekin manage to get close to me (my tail) after nearly end of 60feets. Tekin turbo delay is 0.2 but my HW is 0.4.
Any advise on the setup??

I have pinion 19 thats will make my car ratio 8.40. If I use this on small track can I leave Tekin and cooler down my motor?? Any changes on the setup?

As I was mentioned earlier, I played in 2 tracks, small track with 60feets straight and big track with 130feets straight line.

With the setup I played last 2 night, I think I will get bitten by Tekin in big track because Tekin manage to catch up with me and get more faster after 40feets++ straight line.

Pls advise on the setup of the big track.

Thanks for ur guidence and advise coz now I've already start to smile on the track

Thx..
fasterli...........all depend setup on ur esc and ur driving style!!!
dont compare speed in straight! infield and ur corner skill will let ppl pull far from u! dont campare what ever speed! and please drive smooth and constant!

It'd be nice if the hobbywing staff can chime in on when the new ESC will be available.

Definately not staff, not even an insider,

Although in OZ the Extreme Stock will be available this week sometime, and the V3 is due in the next few weeks, but no details as yet apart from being a touch smaller.

I understand there are also negotiations with a US distributor, so you should see some stocks flowing shortly.

If I am using 518 firmware, can I turn off the turbo via the LCD box and run in a non-turbo class, or do I need to use an older non-turbo firmware? I am asking because I want to use the same car and setup for 17.5 TC and RCGT (non-turbo) class and I didn't want to reload firmware before each race. Thank you...

What is referred to the V3. Motor, ESC or firmware?

Guys,

Does the esc comes with the 2 in 1 LCD Professional Program Card that we need to use to upgrade the esc software or sold separately?

Thanks.

unfortunately you have to reload the 508 "no timing" firmware to do this.

Hey Guys, Is there anyway I can update my HW 120A ver.1 speedo to be competitive with the Tekin?

I'm hoping to use this speedo in stock 17.5 and 13.5.

Are these new programs for ver.2 only?

Ok...cool. One last question, does the 508 "non timing" firmware lock the timing at 0*, or can the timing still be adjusted with the LCD box? Thanks...
