Obviously this is going to cause a blip in the supply of certain items until (if) the insurers agree to pay out please bear with me as we are trying to put a brave face on so as not to ruin the kids' christmas.

My own equipment that has gone is roughly as follows

Tamiya 416X
Tamiya TB Evo 5
Tamiya TA06 Pro with full carbon fibre conversion
Sanwa MT4 Radio
Eagle racing LiPo's x 4 6000 65C
All my spares, bits and bobs just about everything I own for racing.

So please keep your eyes and ears open for me.

Thanks and once again best wishes for the Christmas break.

Default Gear ratio suggestions

Hi guys,

I will be racing for a first time at a carpet track Touring mod. category. My car is Serpent 411 and I will be using Hobbywing 120A 2.1 ESC with Robitronic 5.5t brushless motor(8450kv)

The track has 30m long main straight with technical infield. I dont want to put pressure on power system, so I dont want to use any sort of timing.

What can you guys suggest about FDR?

Regards

This is a Speed Passion software, I would recommend to load the HW software on your 2in1 box then the HW ESC software and take the set-up from there.
Ok I loaded the 930 stock profile now .... I can see the difference now, thanks for your help.

M7H, I will try that, some guys down here told me that it can possibly be a sensor problem.
I got some spare ones here and will try.

When you download the 1.64 software you will have the 2in1 box software.
Then the ESC software can be set when you pick the device tab on top left.

I recommend to load TWICE the software even if you are told it is set.

Stuart, sorry to hear this, I will keep an eye on this in France too, you never know, maybe a couple of pictures of the cars if you have them could help.

Default update fail

Wondering if someone can tell me why everytime I try to update the fw (whether from 1.62 or 1.63) to 1.64 I immedeately get the "update failed" pop up box. I am running windows 7 anditsa brand new machine.

If nobody knows why could someone send me the direct link to 1.64 - I am trying to go through the hobbywing website but no clear direction

thanks

When you initially open the software, are you right clicking on the icon and selecting run as administrator?, if not some functions of the software will not work as you are discovering.
Merry Christmas.
