Turbo is activated when you hit full throttle. It is not RPM related.

I have been struggling to find the sweetspot on the 21.5 at the moment as I also felt the care to be guttless with the turbo on. I am thinking that the motor was not reving enough to notice it.

As prev mentioned the turbo 0.1 etc comes in when your motor hits full RPM so maybe your car was not hitting it???

I also found it gained a lot of heat till I turned my settings down and geared up. Next week I might try going up one more pinion and seeing if that effects things, I am guessing more heat, but till you try these things you really never know. I have found the Time Shift Gain makes a BIG difference with the heat, so always worth turning that down a little before much else if temp is a problem.

What was your driver profile set on? 5?? I am currently on 2 as I found that also gained a fair amount of heat when I was struggling getting my temps down

All good fun isnt it!!
Drive profile ended up on 7, when running both non-turbo and turbo. Might have to play with the gearing to see if I can get the turbo to be benificial.

No point being fsatest on the straight, if I loose it all on the infield.

Are you meant to lower your time shift, when running more turbo... or treat turbo as a bonus with high timeshift... temp's dependant obviously!

Well time shift is advancing the motor, the more you advance it, as a rule, the the faster it will be but the hotter your motor will get.

I turned the profile down and this lost a lot of heat...

I am coming over to Aus on the 11th... see you then hehehe

Hi All,

In the previous firmware (V2.02g), Turbo will kick-in when reaching the preset RPM, no matter where is the throttle position.

In the latest firmware (2.1x), turbo will kick-in after the preset delay(0.1s-0.3s) when full throttle on the transmitter is triggered.

Hi,
wasnīt able to test both software versions, but isnīt the rpm related turbo the better option in theory?

Lutz,

Yes, kick-in at preset rpm is a very good idea, that's why we have it in V2.02g. The problem is it is hard to set for whole range of motor, not to mention different brands. At the same time, we found motor temperature will be higher if turbo was controlled by rpm.

ah ok.
And what about a turbo that kicks in at a preset rpm but only after a preset time of full throttle? Like a combination of the last two versions
