Like I said before, in sensored mode you have no options. If you motor runs the wrong way when wired up aa bb cc, then you have to reverse it in the esc. If you run sensorless, you can swap any two wires to get it to run in the right direction. 99% of the times, if you have the sensor wire in, then your running sensor. Unless you have selected sensorless in the mmp.

I was down at the Ryde track yesterday and since last Sunday's racing it has become reeeaally loose and sandy. Is that usual after the track has not been swept for a week?

Ummm... with the recent down pour of rain last week. I would imagine we lost quite a fair bit of the surface which was held together with Dustex.
I would imagine it would need a good sweep and some TLC to get it back to the way it was pre-downpour.

If you went through a set of tyres Jimmy, the grip is still there. Just needs a good sweep.

I went on Friday and there is piles of sand that has been washed on from around the track, also about three or four areas of very deep silt build up, a lot of areas where the surface has cracked into platelettes and a lot of very deep bike tracks. I would be keen to do some repair work on Friday afternoon from about 3pm, anybody else available? Like people who are on holidays or people who knock off at 2pm on Fridays.

On another note: why could I cut consistent 20-28 second laps for 25 minutes on Friday at St Ives (with other cars on the track) but as soon as I get into a race I may as well be driving with my eyes closed?

Should've raced the Top Force, easier to drive smoothly when you know how hard it is to get parts if you break it
