I use to run x12 13.5 and it was fast and no problems
Any help would be nice tanks.
Gear down (try 6.0FDR), reduce boost, reduce endbell timing, increase switchpoint. All the things you'd expect to do to reduce heat.

Hi,

This has probably been covered amongst the thousands of post on here, but can anybody please confirm to me that whether the gm software can be installed on a MacBook or not? Using the MacOS and not windows on mac...

Luke.

Luke.
If you're talking about running the software straight on mac os then I doubt it, but I think it would work if you ran parallels.

Hi! I have CS rocket competition 120A esc which is rebranded GM Genius? I have huge problems to run Tekin SC4X 550 4,5t sensorless. What kind setup I need? Second question. Does esc handle new 4pole motors like hobbywing or tekin pro4?

Hi,
you have to consider that the timing on the endbelll is a regulation that is strictly related to the track, so If you have long straights and few slow corner you can also try higher timing. However, especially in no timing, higher timing on the endball result in more rpms but less torque; less timing the opposite

Assuming you have done a properly setup on the radio you should have more than enough brakes, but try to tick the current limiter off.

Sincerely I've never done a setup radio I've always thought that it was done automatily from the esc. It's right?

According to the Groupner / GM site, the 75 (both versions) has been discontinued.
