I can't see he is running in blinky mode.

If he runs with timing and boost, but with mod software with less timing and boost options, and if the others at the track runs fully timed and boosted, he would be limited in speed and punch.

Assuming he is not running blinky...

Prodriver, imo the D4 is not a very good motor, it seems the only way to get a fast one is be on the trinity team...
Team Powers is what I would suggest. LRP motor.would be good for boosted but not for blinky..

No one has had any luck with a D4 that I know of, in our neighborhood

The X20 though, lots of fast guys running them, maybe they just work better on belt & DD cars

I would suggest going to the 5.4 stock software. This has more initial drive setting (punch) then previous software. Also a new X stock break feature.

Also you have to look at the full list of mods and equipment used in stock. What are these guys doing with there batteries, chassis, motors, ETC. Stock is very competitive right now due to all the added "tuning" drivers are doing.

If someone were to buy a new LRP Flow, what firmware does it come with and is it actually worth it to update? Mine seems to work just fine straight out of the box.

The software that comes out of the box is 1.4. This is a good starter everyday software, proven to work.

But if you want the best then changing the software is always beneficial. The software that is offered is tailored made for the class of driver that you are. It is tested by the pros and then given to you the consumer.

Also if you are in the market for a new FLOW. At LRP-america.com, we offer your choose of software to use. No having to get a upgrade bridge. Just pick which one you want and we will install it for you FREE.

Use the drop down above the add to cart button. That easy.

Regards the motor question, running blink 13.5.

D4 with around 45deg gives similar performance to a D3.5, you can then run similar gearing and get similar performance to a D3.5.

A couple of guys have tried the X20, tended to over heat when geared to a point where it was on the pace.

I'm using 5.4 but I think the improvements see is not in the punch, it's in the brakes. 1.4 is perfectly fine.

Can anyone explain what Torque Timing really does? In detail?

Torque timing should me have been called torque reducer. It limits the amount of initial torque from the X20 motors. The higher the value the less torque you will receive through the RPM range.

You can further the torque feel when replacing the X20 12.5mm standard rotor with a 12mm rotor.

This feature is on able to work when using the FLOW esc with a LRP X20 motor. It is not used in stock racing and will turn off your blinky function if used.

Oooh. So, if I'm feeling like my motor is too punchy, and I want a smoother feel, I should try maxing the torque timing?
