Default RS Pro with 5.5 redline

Hi All
I have the RS Pro with a 5.5 redline in a 4x4 buggy (Academy), ran it for 2 weekends at our track and I'm very pleased with this combo.
My question is for Randy but any body with insight can chime in ...
At the moment I'm running the box stock 180 ver hotwire in dual mode.
Is there any advantage in running the 189 beta ver in my case (dual mode in an offroad buggy) ? or another way of asking is there a difference between the two in an offroad buggy with a 5.5 motor running in dual mode ?
Here is another question, suppose I have the 189 ver on my laptop, will it be beneficial in any way running "sensored only" with boost ?
Any help welcome.

Hey,

189 has a harder launch over 180. When you have 189 loaded you have the option of 180, 183(has harder launch and NO boost) and 189.

189 and boost is generally ONLY for spec type racing. For a 5.5 stick around 30-60 on dual mode timing.

Boost is not recomended or needed with mod motors.

Try this setup for 4wd mod with a 5.5 or 6.5.

Thanks Randy for the quick reply.
I'll try the timing advance (mine is set at the recomended 12*)as the rest of the settings are pretty close to what I have at the moment.
Maybe even this weekend if the weather holds.

The torque control is the "current limit". Timing boost is degrees of timing *added* to whatever your physical can timing is set at. A page back I think, Randy posted a good starting setup for a 13.5 (or down to a 10.5 motor). Maxed can timing with 12-15 degrees of timing boost on top of that. This is in "sensored only" mode. In dual mode, the timing advance becomes your total timing settings, as the can setting has no effect. 100% on this slider equals 30 degrees.

This was the setup he (Randy Pike) posted for a 13.5

WORD! LOL

That setup is the team standard setup for 2wd offroad with both 13.5's and 10.5's. Dial back the 10.5 to 20 degrees to start out.

For a small track like that just drop your gearing with the above setup! Thanks K!

With that fast of a mod motor definitely put a fan blowing on your speed control posts because they act like heat sinks. If that does not get the temp down you will have to ugly up your body a little. Just above and in front of your speed control you will need to cut your a body a little bit. Cut a small area of your body and pull that section up in the air flow like a ram air scoop. You will be surprised how the additional airflow will keep temps down. Of course this is all based on the fact that your motor is geared around the right FDR.

Hey Randy, turns out I'll just be running a 17.5 trinity, any suggestions? Or should I just stick with this?

Start there, you'll be fine. You can always bump up the motor timing slowly if you need more speed. Remember that if you go UP in timing you must go DOWN in pinions...
