So as far as I am aware, the v5.0 stock firmware only has different options for running boosted classes with higher-wind motors, such as 10.5, 13.5, or 17.5. I don't believe the v5.0 stock firmware has any different options related to blinky mode. The 'stock firmware' is a little misleading, it should really say 'stock boosted' or some such, in my opinion.

In short, yes, as far as I am aware you can run the new v4.7 firmware in blinky and get the new braking options. Use the Mode 6 setting, as Dave mentioned, to put the speedo in blinky, and you should still be able to modify the braking settings.

Cant wait to see what they have done to it.
I hope you can adjust the boost activation RPM... cause that is the thing that still bothers me...

thank you for your comment. I've yesterday realized that I forgot to set the torgh were still set to 10* we have to set mode 5 and 6 to zero. After that it will blink. I also thought it will be enough to set mode 6 to 0 to get blinky.

I was having problems with my motor doing crazy things when using a turbo delay more than 3. 3 is fine, 4 it stalls at more than 50% throttle. I tried messing with the other settings and none of that seemed to matter. Not sure if it's a bug or what. Reedy M2 6.5 motor at 20 degrees timing.

The mode 3 brakes are impressive.

Track is 24 by 12 meters but a fairly tight infield with a long straight. FDR is 5.78 ,rollout is 34.8,timing insert is 27.5,motor has fan, settings on Flow Team Works with 5.0 stock firmware are;
0-4-3-5-5-3-0
the motor can is coming off under 40 degrees measured with a temp gun after a 5 minute race, feels like the it has some boost but not coming in totally(can't hear it much when racing).

Is your motor reaching full rpm at the end of the straight, or still accelerating?
Those setting are a little conservative.

Does the car feel dead in the infield?

I think it might still be accelerating,hard to tell tbh. Seems ok in the infield. Do you have any suggestions on setting, or whether to gear down or increase settings?
I do run a exzes z and 472 rec so should be able to log rpm if i can work out how to do it!
