Thanks.

One more thing, since I'm just running 1s (3.7V) is it okay to run the speedo without the fan?

does it work without the sensor cable ? if it does then you have issue with the sensor cable or the sensor in the motor itself .Also turn down your punch level and even you might have an issue with a low discharge battery .Many things can be the cause of cogging

Just so everyone knows the anti counterfeit number is the actual label on the box.. You just simply scratch the box to have the 20 digit number appear.. When entering the number on the website do not leave any spaces..

It's a non sensored 4pole 4600 kv motor. I will try updating the Esc software , was running a sensord Novak 5.5 Hv with no problems.

I've noticed an increase in the number of people racing in the UK that are whacking the advance timing on the motor right up in 10.5 then adjusting the esc settings to suit. Any one any ideas why racers are going down this route?

It gives it more initial punch if you run high mechanical timing, with slightly lower gear, say 2 teeth less on pinion, and it allows the motor to spin at a higher top rpm, which means you can add more timing boost and then stretch your boost ramp out really long therefore making the car smoother, I myself prefer to run slightly advanced above neutral, but alot of that depends on the track you run at.

And to further add to that... Adding motor timing is the only option left when the settings are maxed (boost+turbo), which gains RPM, and hence top speed.. Buts more heat.

Is there a online guide available for 930 stock to explain all the settings, mainly about timing "acc" and boost and turbo etc?

also anyone know the true mechanical timing of the xerun stock 540 sensored motors, they dont have adjustable endbell

For most people who are starting to tune with dynamic timing however end up with a too small FDR and too much boost too early. The motor spins at insane RPM:s but the car does not really go anywhere.

The most important setting for dynamic timing is your FDR, make sure it is as big as possible, its ok to sacrifice some timing for this. It will also improve your throttle response and make the car easier to drive. Of course the car should be responsive and not sluggish.

Fast drivers can always get away with more timing and bigger FDR. They simply drive the corners better which keeps the RPM higher and when they accelerate out they generate less heat. Its easy to do the last fine tuning for the track and person by increasing the FDR untill the lap times do not improve anymore.

the 3 parameters of adjusting your dynamic timing are:
FDR
total timing per RPM
angular acceleration of the motor (weight of car, drive train, grip levels etc anything that affects how freely the motor can accelerate, avg speed)

angular acceleration is quite static but changes slighty because of track condition, driver, track layout etc.

For the timing you want to adjust it so that you always have the max timing the motor can cope with (but not a single degree too much). This will always give you the best efficiency (less heat). If you have too much it will cook your motor, if you have too little your car will just not go anywhere but always keep it on the lower side. Othervise you might end up cooking your motor later in the day when the traction builds up.

When testing your setups and learning how to play with the settings always take your temps with 1 or 2 minute intervalls. This way your gear will be quite safe and the risk breaking something is quite minimal.
