If Andrew could help that would be great!!
We haven't run 13.5 boosted for a few years - and not with the Vx. I would go with Eric's suggestion about starting with a 17.5 boosted settings.
We did try boosted 17.5 yesterday and didn't really have enough time to test settings accurately as it was a race day at a different track than we usually run at. We had the most success with the ORCA 17.5 RX2 - but will need to wait until next weekend to get some more conclusive results. We have the TX to try but wanted to wait until we could get some more useful test data to try it.
We ran a 6.38 FDR and 3.5 bars on the motor and used the following:
Turbo Delay 0.1
Turbo Int 2
It was a really tight track and only had a few areas where the boost was useful. The motor never got hot enough to warrant taking a temperature - but there wasn't testing between rounds to allow for testing of changes to the settings to try and get more out of the ESC.
Some general rules of thumb for the ESC settings when we are testing:
1 - turn it down if you need more bottom end out of the turn
2 - add more timing if you need more mid range
3 - normal ( change to -2 if you want more aggressive mid range)
5 - turn it up if you need more top speed
This needs to be balanced with the motor temperatures.
