what i need to know is how much doble sided tape you used to fix the esc in the chassi
There is a thin strip of tape under each side of the case where the fins would touch the chassis where do i get the heatsink from as it is quite hard to get backup in the uk

I have the handheld programmer for the GM100 and the battery is flat. How do I charge it up? I connected a second ESC and battery to the input socket and the battery voltage crept up to 4.something but I wasn't sure if this would charge the battery or not.

the programmer will be charged, or you can use any powersupply with up to 30V as can be read in the manual


the heatsink can be purchased from gm

not sure where you can get it in the uk

or you just switch of the tempcut by using reserved 7 (old brake software) o r23 (new brake software)

After e few runs I have start to appreciate my new GM 7T delta.It was a question of time to see how good performs with the right gearing.

2894.11 is the heatsink set

i only use the heatsink that is mounted ontop of the esc.

use thin double sided tape to fix the heatsink on the plasits and the heat conducting glue to make it able for the heat to pass from the alloy case to the heatsink

Hello,this week I received my upgraded Genius 95 (software with 8 modes). Im very satisfied with the performance in sensored mode, but I have one question, can I change at the track the standard settings (drag brake,max amps,etc) with the set up button (without using a PC or the optional programmer unit)?

Regards.

no you cannot

you can programm it at home

like mode 1 8khz frequency brake 10/100/100 amp 200
mode 2 -"- 10/100/100 amp 150
mode 3 4khz 10/100/100 amp 175

just an example that would mean mode 1 -> full punch ; mode 2 -> less punch but precise ; mode 3 -> medium punch, smooth to drive

in modified we usually never use sensors .. no difference so why messing around with a sensor wire :-)

in general less khz means less punch and percision in throttle response but will get easier to drive as the esc smoothens the throttle input you give.

if you do have a hard driving style a lower frequency can help you keep it clean and smooth

whilst a higher frequency can provide you with extra power which has to be controled but can be faster if driven smooth enough

the amplimit is similar

Strange that you say that there is no difference in modified so dont use sensor lead, I have found the car much better off the line and generally smother to drive with the sensor lead in. I used the settings earler in this thread so is there something I am doing wrong. I also find that you have much better control over the brakes rather than full on/off in sensorless mode

Hi,
Just bought an evo 3 4T bl motor with 12,5mm rotor.
I will run sensorless and 5cells.
My question is should timming be set at 30 on genius95 like other windings?
Thanks

there is not a single teamdriver using a sensor wire in modified as noone noticed any difference!

i think there is a programming mistake in the program you run (is the timing set to value 3 -> 30 timing)

regarding the 4T -> did you buy it used or new as there are no new 4Ts anymore. only 7T Delta motors which is similar in driving feeling just a little more topend.

timing has to be set to 30 for all gm motors

Thanks for the fast response.
I bought 4t used with 12,5mm rotor.
I already own 3.5 4.5 and 5.5.The reason for the 4t was runtime on wide/long tracks,where 3.5 is fast but lacks on runtime and 4.5 makes runtime but its slower.
Hope 4T or new 7T is the right motor for this kind of tracks.

Regarding GM products,do they sell a sensor plug extension?
The reson for this question is because it would be easier in some cases to connect pc cable to genius esc,those pins on sensor plug seems so fragile and can be bend easy.

there is no extension from 8 to 8 pole connector

but if you are carefull nothing should happen usually . if one pin is bent you can easily bend it back

Checked set up on esc and you were correct. It was not set to 3 (infact 0) now have ballistic car and no thermal issues. JUst one quick question I have a 7 delta were would sugest starting with gearing. I normally run between 7.2-6.9 with a standard 3.5 turn.
