Try the following... which is not dissimilar to what Andy Moore uses (last time I asked anyway!)

FDR 8.0ish
Punch - 12/15, linear
Brake - 20/20 linear, 67.5%, 8% drag
Boost - 24steps, 12,500 - 27,500 rpm, linear
Turbo - 18steps, Delay 0.15s, 12/s Engage, 18/s Disengage

If you need more straight line, up the turbo to 20. Also, running a fan on the motor and esc is a must!

Hope it helps.

thx ed for the help. i am of course running a fan on the esc. but did not use one on the motor yet as the motor was not that hot (never over 80 which is fine by me).

based on your (andy's ) settings the bosst is coming in at very low rpms, so from what i understand is that, the bottom end grunt is increased. this was not my intention at all at the last race as it was rather slippery. but i will give the settings a try next time and see how it goes.

cheers

I'll double check the software but think I've got that one on! I'll try dropping the brake force down to 75% aswell as a check see how that comes in.

Thanks for the help guys, hopefully I'll get abit more power into the brakes now!

The filename of the latest 508 is virtually identical to the previous one but the software on the 121204 database is different.

I've been running the latest 508 for a couple of months now but haven't had the chance to really test the brakes - outdoor season starts at the end of the month, and indoors doesn't need much brakes in comparison - so it will be interesting to see whether the brakes still have a softness on the track despite the sharpness on the bench.

I know that the v2.1 boosted brakes feel soft at 100% even though they are sharp on the bench, which I think is related to the hardware struggling under the load, because they work fine at 75%. Perhaps that is the case with the updated blinky brakes too?

Honestly, even with the boost coming in relatively low, you'll find it surprisingly smooth. Even on lower traction, that rev range feels very drive-able. The biggest thing's to make it smoother if needed are the punch settings, and the overall amount of boost. I'm normally using anywhere between 18-28 on the boost, and have gone as low as 10 on the punch when needed, but have never felt the need to go lower. Also lowering those settings has a positive effect on the temp (lower)
What I partly think was happening with your previous setting is that using so much Turbo, so quickly, was putting a lot of instant load on the esc, leading to a lot of heat. Better, IMO, to add it more gradually, and use less turbo.
Anyway, give them a try and see what you think, hopefully works out well

Regards
Ed

I have an XTREME STOCK 2.1 60A. Is there any difference between running the blinky software and the 930 software with the boost and turbo set to 0?

Reason I ask is because I am lazy and do not want to keep changing firmware for when I need blinky but some people at my local club think that even though I have 0 boost and 0 turbo timing that my ESC is still adding/adjusting timing. Is this true?

I've not tried the 2 firmwares back to back but I have a suspicion that the 930 with 0 boost and 0 turbo does have a more lively feel to it. TIA!

This is one thing I wish it can do is switch to blinky firmware to boost via program box instead of having to go to the CPU.

If its a v3 esc, then you can. Just press the r/p button on the programme box, and then select the profile. Or set the boost and turbo both to zero degrees in your current profile, and your in blinky mode

I've tested the two on a dyno. The boosted software even with all boost/turbo off produces a lot more power at higher rpm than the blinky software, so it's still doing something under the hood. So the options are keep changing the firmware, or buy a v3 ESC.

No your not adding boost or turbo when set at zero but its a spec rule that the escs leds must blink 2 times a sec which means you need to have the 508 zero timing software to achieve it as the software on the xtreme stock and 2.1v dont have the software feature like the v3 has were you have zero on boost and zero on turbo and the leds blink to indicate zero timing mode.
