Default GTB Brushless profiles

okay I have read and re-read the directions. I dont get why there are 6 profiles and what would you need them all for? I mean I see some of the differences but since they are all adjustable couldnt you have just one and make the adjustments? So whats the point of them? Which is better?

I guess if you go to different tracks that are different sizes you might want to change the setup of the GTB etc... this way you could have 5 custom profiles to suit your tracks instead of changing individual settings all the time.

yea I guess thats very true.

I just didnt know if one was supposed to be for big tracks, one for smaller technical tracks and one for something inbetween and so on.

Rock, there are several reasons why they have 6 throttle profiles. For hard launches, soft launches, braking parameters as well as for voltage concerns. The GTB can be customized to the point where it caters to your driving style and the track to ensure maximum run times and performance.

okay see this is sort of what I thought. So which profile is for which? Or are you saying that you can customize them to these types of conditions? If so I am not completely sure I understand the adjustments.

The first profile is agressive as hell out of the gate, heavy amp draw....axle twisting torque that will snap stuff if your equipment is suspect. Second profile gives you a bit softer of a launch, more control on full throttle. Adjusting the brake contrary to popular belief (of some), assists in keeping the temps in check and easing strain on your packs. The instructions are confusing at first, but read through them and it'll come to you..then its off to the races.

I have been turning up the minimum drive for profile #1. Will this take away from top speed at all? Seems like my vehicles have been losing some straight away speed to others but I get around tighter sections of the track better--I think from having more punch in the ESC. Maybe I'm wrong. Anyone notice this?

Ya, I am wiring up my GTB 4-cell/10.5 system in my BMI DB12r, I was wonderin also what profile to use.. lol

Basicaly after looking at the brushless profiles, you want to use 1-4 and not 5 cause it isnt prgrammable... also, it says for #5 that it has reverse, well i switched it to #5 and it dont have reverse... lol unless im doing something wrong.

I woudl like someone to go into depth what each one does and the difference of effects in settings.. if someone could...

well I have tried them all and without being on a track I can say that the differences are pretty small. I guess if I was a better racer I would have uses for them all.
