As a good baseline, have a look at the worlds settings from Andy Moore (here) that are up on the Hobbywing site. Very good reference points to use, and what I base my settings on, although need to be a little different due to the rather grunty ProAmps motor's I'm using.

HiH
Ed
thx ed. tried it at the last ETS race in apeldoorn = long straight
ended up with the boost from 14000-38000. dont know how much degrees are set now for boost and turbo (marc fisher set the speedo for me) but speed was great and unexpectely still very smooth bottom power. i think it was overall very close to andys setup from the worlds in the end. used a thunderpower 4.5T geared 1:8,0 and 20deg timing on the motor with fan. weather was very cold (15c) so motor temps were not an issue.

I have a Hobbywing V2.1 60a esc. When you engage the throttle the motor does not spin.. If you turn the real wheel a little the motor will take off. If you unplug the sensor wire the problem goes away and it acts like an unsensored motor. Have tried 2 different motors and a few different sensor wires. Recalibrated the radio. Nothing seems to fix the problem.
Any suggestions?

Try reloading the program onto the unit, and use a new sensor wire to be sure.

hey guys...I'm new to the Hobbywing line of speedos (coming from the 'smaller,faster' speedo camp)

how does the JustStock speedo compare to the other brand speedos? most of the locals at my track run either the tekin or LRP - so kinda of looking for a baseline as to how everyone feels the speedo does against the 'big boys'

thanks

kaybo

Cool. Anyone know what the max endbell timing will be for the 17.5t?

Latest version is v3.1_121129_beta. I know the names are a little confusing, but the clues are in the name.
Firstly, 'v3.1' refers to the latest software spec, it isn't anything to do with the speedo its suited for. Secondly, the second part of the name is the date, in YYMMDD style.. So it was made on the 29th Nov 2012.

HiH

Damaged mosfet is your issue which powers the sensor port of the esc

@cobraracing.

What is the lowest possible timing on the new hobbywing xerun motors? Reason I ask is that the old xerun motors with fixed timing bell work very well in boosted and I don't really want to have more motor timing than that.

The sensorplug on the new motors is not really nicely placed imo. The old motors had the sensor to the side and the new ones goes up which isn't as efficient for sensorwire placement.

current fixed timing motors were fixed at 22 degree

new ones go from 18 degree fixed to 35-40 adjusted dont hold me to it ill have a look at a motor and ill measure the angle of the sensors and let you know tomorrow but im sure im close with my estimate
