I've tried re calibrating ESC to radio(4PKSR) a bunch of times with EPA at 100 and 120 and so on. Still the car is not as fast as I think it should be.
For comparison my T4 14 with the orca VXX and orca 4.5 motor has much more top end even with a 7.98 ratio.
Heres my set up.
411 ERYX with 7.6 FDR
LRP flow works with the v4.7 software
Reedy 4.0T timing is at default 20 degrees
ESC setings are 3,2,0,1,0,6,3,6,1,2
Running on large asphalt track. Back straight is 220ft.
Car just doesn't seem fast enough. I'm trying to hit low-mid 60mph on the back straight but I'm only hitting around 57mph (clocked on radar gun) even when turning up boost and turbo higher then the above settings.
Almost feels like no turbo is being applied. It gets up to speed nicely but just doesn't have that pull at the end of the straight. Kinda falls flat for the last 1/4 of the back straight while fast cars continue to pull hard the whole way through.
Any ideas what to try? Manual says a bad cap could cause lower power, anybody have that problem? I have another LRP flow works in my 1/10 2wd Buggy I could try to see if its the ESC I just hate to swap them out only to be disappointed
If anybody has any suggestions I would really appreciate it.
Change Reedy 4.0T timing......at 38 to 40 degrees
