use the 13.5 setup I posted and just change the following:

reserved: 89 -> 81

switchpointrpm: 10000 -> 15000

and you should be set

gearing between 5,5 and 7,5 depending on the track

from my experience mode 8 in 7.2 fw is too hot for stock motors. Try mode 6 or 7. difference can come from the driving style.

yeah that sounds like a plan
I cannot really tell you how long it takes but I'd say no longer than 2 weeks

as stated in the manual if you run sensorless the "timing without sensors"HAS TO BE SET to 30°
"timing with sensors" = 0°
then just use a 4T sensorless and you are good

yes for 13.5, the 90 is as good as the 120. I'm not sure if they get delivered with the new firmware though.
