Any idea what speedo and settings Marc Fisher was using at the 1/12th stock EC last week?
It looked like a 90 out of it's case.

hehe lots of PT folks flooding GM thread my turn

Damn rain doesnt stop,no training then.

I've tried mode 8 and its pretty fast but motor temps are a bit insane.
Since we are running 2S lipo here,maybe mode8 or mode6 copied to mode3 are more secure.What do you think?

Here is my doubt: Im currently on mode6 copied to mode3 lets imagine I wanna try mode8 copied to mode3.
Should I previously do a factory reset to pick a clean mode3 or just load mode8 with transmitter then pick mode3 thru AS-tool?
Thanks.

Hi

It does not make a difference wether mode 6 is copied to mode 3 or mode 8.

for 2s lipo I would really suggest to run mode 3, or if you still suffer heat problems even mode 6.

Outdoors fans are a big plus.
Temps are ok up to around 90C.

Hottest I ever tested with a GM motor was 118C with the motor still working, but this is very close to the edge.
Lrp can handle a little more heat (128 hottest I ever tested *g*)

But to be secure 80 - 90C should be your personal max.

Hi,

Just bought a GM Genius 120 and I'm looking for a good setup/profile for driving it with a LRP 13.5t and 2s lipo. Anybody who can give some advice... Really happy with it!

Any suggestions on the gearing to start with for outdoor asphalt? I was thinking to start around 5.0 on a medium large track.

Tips and Tricks:
Mode 8 is only for 13.5T and for 1:12, if the motor temperature is lower as 60C in the other modes.

For using Mode 3 with 6.5T it's good with the original background values.
To use the Mode 3 with 9.5T and with 13.5T you need to adjust the Mode 6 with the radio and then switch the mode with the PC to Mode 3.
SwitchStartMode value at reading out in the white field must show a value between 200 and 250.
Use lower gearing!

For 2 LiPos and 9.5T-10.5T the Mode 6 should be best.
Even with 5 cells a lot of good drivers still use Mode 6 to keep the temperature of the motor low enough and they still finish with good results.

Only very smooth drivers with perfect car set-up use Mode 3.

If the motor temperature with 13.5T is still lower as 80C, you may use Mode 3 with lower gearing, of cause.

Thanx!! But can you tell me what you exactly mean by "adjust the mode 6 with the radio" ?

I will try lower gearing!

Habicht means you have to choose mode6 with transmiter,read manual on how to do it.
Then load mode3 with as-tool.

btw new pro stock motors are great those,run 10-15 cooler than purple stock version.

One more quick question.. (sorry)
I did all the steps as mentioned before (picked mode 8 by transmitter, and changed a few things and sent it back to the speedo.) The thing I was wondering now is; do I have to pick mode 3 now by the transmitter or does it still need to be in mode 8? Can't find it anywhere, neither at Hofers blog.

Thanx in advance!

you changed to mode 3 via pc software right?

so now the ESC is in mode 3 already

but from now on you will want to choose the mode via transmitter so don't mess up the background programming anymore
