Any thought given to moving the start time for Saturday up since the high will be a chilly 99 degrees?

Has anyone found a good point for the mechanical timing on their 13.5 motor? This assuming that there is no timing advance or boost in the ESC.

I am currently trying out the the LRP V2 13.5, and the manual indicates that you should not go beyond the factory setting for timing on the motor. But KBRL rules do not allow for timing in the ESC.

Using the +10 degree insert for max timing the motor seems to be running hot.

Those LRP motors seem to run hot as it is. I would think any timing would make it worse

Thanks Mellen.

That's my thinking. It seems like they have about 30 degrees of timing built in to them from what I am reading. I'm going to kick it back down to +5 and see what happens. I wish you could simply turn the endbell. The inserts don't give you the ability to fine tune the timing.

Most of the Associated/LRP drivers have been running the 4 Dot timing inserts on the LRP X12 motors. This produces the most power with reasonable heat. “Reasonable heat for X12 is about 185-190deg.” They can handle 200+deg but running it consistently this hot will demagnetize the rotor quickly. Generally running it over 250deg will unsolder the windings in the stator. I recommend running the 13mm rotor if you want to increase the timing to the 3 or 2 Dot timing inserts. The larger rotor will keep the motor much cooler. I apologize I don’t know what each Dot is in timing. There is a noticeable power difference running 2 Dot inserts from stock 4 Dot inserts on the motor. Just watch the heat!

Default Start times for Fall

It will be getting cooler soon so we should start thinking about revised start times. I'll bring up the subject at the drivers meeting Saturday and see what the consensus is.

I just talked to Dale and the tracks are ok for practice tonight..



Thanks for the info Keoni!

I'll give an unbelievable price if you come up with 10. Pm for price.
