Hello all. After some years using LRP I have went and bought the new GM120 (2010 model) and a GM10.5T (97035).
I was looking some help with what base settings to use for 10.5 pro stock. Local track is considered high grip, with around 12-13 sec lap time. I had read somewhere to just choose Mode 9 and leave it at that???? Also what FDR should I start at.
Thanks very much in advance for the advice.

Since i am also new to the GM i will be starting on mode 9 for the first few runs at said track and have a play about from there.Stephen i have a few set up files from our friends over the water that i can send you. I have been advised to start with an FDR of around 5.7 at said track. I will be heading up on easter monday for some testing with this speedo. Monday cant come quick enough :-)

HI Guys, what is the effect in fitting 12.5 mm rotor instead of running the 12.3mm rotor? and do I need to adjust gearing?
Thanks

Hey Ricky,

Fitting a 12.5mm rotor should give more torque but a little less RPM, so you'll have to gear up a bit to maintain the same top speed.

In my opinion a bigger rotor makes the motor more efficient, meaning it should run a little cooler.

Hope this helps.

For 97305 optimum FDR is 6.4 - 6.6 for indoor lap time 13 secs. IMO mode 9 is too hot to start with. Modify the setting by turning down fixed timing to 16, especially if the track has a lot of tight turns. If its flowing use 20. If you are incredibly smooth you can use more. The motor/speedo has awesome grunt and if you are aggressive with the throttle you will heat up, but not go any faster in lap time. Monitor your motor temp by reading the telemetry each run. If you're peaking at 85 deg C ish internal its on the money.

If you use 12.3mm BRCA rotor you should in theory gear shorter but it doesn't quite work out like that especially if you use dependent timing, its intelligent and gives the motor what it needs. If you gear it the same (ish) as the big rotor, 6.4 - 6.8 it seems to work out great.

Also on temps, sometimes I found the small rotor ran a tiny bit cooler (??) and was less prone to fading, I cannot say for certain why. Strange.

Generally I'd say run the big rotor when possible because the brakes are massively better with the strong rotor, but its down to your preference. Car flows more with a smaller rotor, depends on your style.

Just purchased the GM 17.5 97297 motor.

Anyone got any FDR and ESC setup advice?

Never used a GM motor don't want to blow the motor / ESC.\

Also how does the temp monitor work???

Thanks
Alex

Thank you

Default GM GENIUS 120 BRUSHLESS SPEED CONTROLLER V2010

GM GENIUS 120 BRUSHLESS SPEED CONTROLLER V2010

How does the GM Genius 120 V2010 compare to other speed controllers (using 10.5 fixed timing motors) like the Advanced electronics Black Diamond and LRP SXX StockSpec?

It is fior used with axtra motor temp sensors for motors that dont have one inbuilt like the new gm motor. To use this you must atatch your own ntc sensor to the motor
