Impreza,
Cyclone TC has a specific program for stock racing, you should try it.
I think it is profile 3.

the TC2 has a better internal resistance compared to TC and the plug for Pit wizard has changed.
If you can have a Cyclone TC at a very good price go for it.

Here is the set-up procedure for your LRP runner Reverse ;

In set-up mode the Runner-Plus-Reverse speed control automatically stores the neutral, full-throttle and
reverse values it receives from the transmitter without you having to press the set-up button. All the
settings are stored in the unit even when the speed control is subsequently disconnected from the battery.
Start with the transmitter set-up procedure:

High ATV, EPA (throttle travel) - maximum
Low ATV, EPA, ATL (brake travel) - maximum
EXP, EXPO (exponential) - start with 0
SUB trim (neutral trim) - centre
TH trim, coast brake - centre
Throttle reverse (servo reverse) - any setting; must not be changed after completion of set-up procedure.

TRANSMITTER SETTINGS:
Asymmetrical stick travel is possible (2/3 throttle - 1/3 brake)
If your transmitter does not feature these set-up functions, it is already in “basic set-up” mode.

CHECKING THE FUNCTIONS:
You can check the following functions by watching the reaction of the LED:
• Check that the speed control is not connected to the drive battery.
• Remove the motor pinion, or ensure in some other way that the wheels of the model are free to rotate.
• Switch the transmitter on.
• Set the transmitter throttle stick to neutral.

SET-UP
• Connect the speed control to the battery.
• Hold the set-up button pressed in for at least 2 seconds using the plastic screwdriver supplied.
Set up the following basic functions on your transmitter (if present):
• The set-up LED flashes green and the unit automatically stores the neutral position.
• Move the transmitter stick first to full-throttle forward and then to full-throttle reverse.
• Release the throttle stick and leave it at neutral.
• Press the set-up button again to store these settings.
• The set-up LED now glows green constantly.
• Your Runner-Plus-Reverse is now completely set-up and ready to run.

• If you make a mistake during the set-up procedure, don’t worry: disconnect the battery for
about 10 seconds and start again from the first step.
• At the end of each run disconnect the drive battery, and only then switch off the transmitter.
At the start of each run switch on the transmitter first, then connect the drive battery.

FUNCTION STATE LED GLOWS
Neutral dull green
Forward part-load bright green
Forward full-throttle off
Brake part-load bright green
Brake full brake off
Reverse part-load dull to bright green
Reverse full-throttle off
Temperature protection active flashes bright green

Ian,

You can install the cap on the wires, for example...

You just need to cut a little shrink off the side of the wire, yes.

What I did was. I took a cutter and peelef off a small opening on the esc's positive and negative wires nearest to it. Had thin wires soldered to the caps.

Default Hitec HFX

Anybody got experience with the Hitec HFX? Good/bad? Reliable?

I'm looking for an ESC with good BEC specs. (6 volt/3 amps) and at least 12 turns. The HFX seems to be the cheapest which meet this.

Default automatic break & one-way

Hi all,
I'm looking for buying an esc with automatic break or drag break, the quantum for example. Is this option helpful on big circuits when using an one-way??? Or is the car going to spin out?

Thanks
