For sure.

I thought that it had higher values on a few of the settings compared to 1.4. Nothing that would give you more power or boost because blinky is blnky but less brake and higher initial throttle so your still blinky but get a little more punch. Initial drive or something along those lines.

For me I just need practice, software can't fix that. I am going to turn my 17.5 on engine boost down and see if I can pick up some torque.

Adjusting power profile gives your more punch but you will get wheel spin.. Get the Revtech Killshot with LRP flow it's a killer combo...

Gentlemen,

with above setup, I tried 6-1-1-2-2-2-0, but car would keep shutting down / resetting about half-way thru the heat.

Thus, I tired 6-1-0-0-NA-NA-0 (no boost or turbo, kinda like blinky but using V4.0 s/w. Unfortunately, the car would stop, after a short break, say 5 secs, the car would go again, almost as if the ESC was resetting itself.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated...
Thanks!

When it stops, go down and look at the ESC. The lights will show you why the ESC has cut off.

Did we ever get an answer on whether or not it's possible to buy a replacement bottom case? I still can't solder on this ESC without sometimes melting some plastic.

Customer support thought that I should send it in anyway, even though I was over-geared, thus I sent it in...;(

I think that I jumped the gun on this one...
