Mark, essentially, only one of those are BRCA legal. Nick chooses to bring the others in himself, where as Schumacher just bring in the legal one - GM 97294

Hi very new to this speedo and I would like to know how I put everything back to factory defaults?

I have been told to just run mode 9 with 10.5 but I notice there is a choice of timing modes that can be applied (Soft to Hard) I am looking for something with plenty of grunt right through the rev range

Where do you think do the stock programs actually come from?

I'm running programs like that since 2 years now already!

Atsushi use 5.5T for most of the race!!

Matt

I was more just looking to find out what the different characteristics of the four motors are, if anyone of them is faster than another, I am not bothered about brca legality as none of the events i race in require the use of brca legal motors.


The four motors are ;

GM6553 Brushless 13.5T 1600Gauss motor

GM 97293 13.5T star wound brushless motor. 1540 gauss, 12.0mm rotor

GM 97294 Brushless motor 13.5T star wind 2010 edition 1300Gauss

GM 97303 New 13.5T Pro Brushless Motor with 1600gauss rotor

What for example does the "guass" mean?


Mark

I'm still a little confused with the ESC, I'm in the process of sending my Genius 120 back to Germany (to Ralf?) for the version 8.0 update as I understand this will give me more speed than version 7.2, our track has a very long straight and I'm now loosing too much time to the Tekin RS equipped cars hence the desire for more top end speed

From what I understand from reading this post, I'm best off just selecting profile 9 when I get it back, and not adjusting any other parameters, is this correct?

Congratulations to all GM drivers and designers.
Ralph, your products are "kick ass GREAT" !
I was racing at the ETS this weekend. had a lot of fun those 3 days!
This is one of the best organised races i think..

Hara was doing 116km/h on the straight!! (72 Miles/h) incredible!

Good Job from Martin Hofer to get that car going that fast!

Mode 9 is allready fast.
Other option is to load the martin Hofer settings from the GM site.

Thats allmost what i am running on our track with quite a long straight.
I am faster than the Mamba drivers on the track and most of the time faster than the Tekin guys (allthoug they are going better last weeks but they burn motors).
They are all jealous about the power the GM delivers!

I was using the New Gm 13.5 motor for a week but got back to my old GM motor that lasts for 1.5 years now!
