What was the "recommended" gearing and are you using a Tekin Hotwire?

If you are going w/ 28 id run in the dual mode with about 60 advance for a starting point, check temps and adust.. this will run cooler than when in sensor only with boost/turbo on. If you are going to run with some boost I would start with a 25t and dial up the boost and adjust according to temps. Keep in mind after a 10min main you want to pull off and be at no more than 190 max temp.

Tekin RS
17.5
75/26 thats geared low, so I can use boost and turbo to get the same performance as 75/28.

Unfortunately I forget my exact settings. I'll let the other Vegas guys chime in. I'm running 8.5 in dual mode right now.

Get a Tekin or trinity Epic for your Tekin ESc's. Avoid Novak, run Novak motors with the Novak Kinetic ESc.

What do you consider a "big track"? How long is the straight?

How can you expect anyone to answer this question for you? There are too many variables! You were obviously over geared for your setup or you ran it for to long. You need to start building on your own experiance with your setup.
There is no way someone can say just throw a 28 tooth on there ect...

Next time maybe you'll buy a temp gun and use caution when gearing and selecting motor esc and battery, take into account the ambient temp outside since it changes constantly! Good luck!
