Default Boost or not?

Hey All

I realize I need to contact folks at the track I want to run on....but for a rookie class that states no Boost ESCs, is the Havoc Pro considered a Boost ESC since it has exponential throttle curves? The default throttle curve is EXP1 - what if the throttle curve is set to linear?

Thanks!
Mike

A Tekin ESC would be more of boost ESC.

Right, exponential can improve the trigger feel a bit, but it's definitely NOT boost. Boost is a word for adding timing to a motor, which will make it faster(though there are dangers in using it, namely going too far & burning the motor out), & certain ESC's like the Tekin RS series for example, can add in extra timing at specific rpm at a customizable rate. It's a bit like adding a second gear to a car, but the Havoc Pro does not have any kind of timing advance function, so you'll be fine to adjust what you want on it within the rules....

It's the indoor oval up in Mt Vernon. Hoping to make it up there for the first time in a couple weeks
