Hey man Try talking to rob he might be able to help. I was looking into buying the rs as well after hearing good things about it online. But when i started to ask around at the track people told me it was not so good. lets hope we can make a profile that would work at LIR

183 you should be able to get off of the tekin site. 189 isn't publically available yet but you can get it if you email randy pike. I dont know what version rob is running but the 189 with the boost feature definitely made it better when I am running the slower motors.

With the version you have I would put the timing all the way up and probably gear at a 24-25 depending on the track.
