You can tune the bottom end to the track by turning up the start power. Low is pretty smooth off the bottom and high can be a bit much for dirt. i'd probably just crank it up and leave it there for onroad.
Fred, I've had great success running 40 degrees @8400 - 9200rpm in CHEAT mode in truck stock, punch set 10%, start power high. We run a low grip, bumpy track with a 140' straight. I'm able to pull full throttle coming onto the straight and I either get wheel stands 1/2 way down the straight or the back end kicks out on me when it hits the timing boost.
When I made the change from my previous esc I was coming off the track hot, now with the MMP geared two teeth higher the motor is still about 10 degrees cooler. My lap times have improved by an average of 1.5 seconds a lap.
The only thing I'm upset by is the constant checks I am getting because people think I'm running a faster motor than stock. I guess it doesnt help that I answer yes when they asking if am cheating.
