Default Rubber carpet settings

Hi, anyone (especially those in the UK) running the RB-50 in 10.5 rubber carpet - if so what settings are you using.

I say especially UK as I believe the carpet has less grip over here...

hey guys I hear that a 12 scale speedo might be coming out.

what i'm curious will either the rb30 or rb50 work in in a 12 scale application. I believe the fan can come off the rb 50. just curious if anyone has used it in 12 scale this season using 1s lipo. i was planning on running the rb50 as it can be used for touring next summer. as I only race one or the other.

any info and or photo of a 12scale set up would be great all ..

The RB series is similar to the SPX speedie having dynamic timing but much more control on how it is used. It offers a turbo which is different from all other brands that I know of. It somehow forces more current through the same motor giving you more power AND speed so it is not "soft" like tekin and LRP. I normally run mod but I ran in 17.5 the other weekend at my local club and had motor performance to the envey of all others.

Hi Guys,

I managed to run the RB50 on saturday, i've been using a SP GT2 with an fdr of 4.05 with a SP17.5 at the track. With the RB50 I ran anywhere from a 4.3fdr to a 3.7fdr, and only with a 3.7fdr did i manage to match the speed of the gt2, the speedo settings on the RB50 is , timeshift 5, drive profile 9, and turbo on, the motor is about 162 degrees, with a TW17.5. I have tried 2 RB50 speedo's and 3 motors and still results are the same. I thought turbo would be some immense power?.

Thanks Ya`All

Hey just a update we just had our national title for Australia yesterday. It was a rb30 driven by me for a tq in stock and unfortunately only a second overall but that was more a driver mistake in the 3rd leg!! But equal best laps between me and 1st place and a fairway back after that. My brother took 4th in the A main for modified with one of the fastest laps in modified. Only a tenth in it. A good first result in a major race meet for Team Wave Australia. I'm not sure about any other driver's but Paul will update soon i'm sure. Also air temps were up near 40 degrees celsius and track temp over 60 degrees celsius at the hottest part of the day.

Although I mainly run mod, my experience with the RB speedo's is with turbo you need to run medium to low timeshift for more punch. Top speed will not suffer with turbo on. Start with timeshift 1 next time out and work up from there.

Just received my RB-30 and got it installed. Only issue I see is that the plug-in socket for the sensor cable is quite picky. Unless I hold the sensor cable so that it applies pressure to the socket just so, I do not get full contact and the motor will not run. The cable connector is fully seated in the socket and the cable is definitely good (tried in another speedo and works fine with no fiddling), so the the problem is definitely on the RB-30 side. I haven't run at the track yet, but I'm a bit worried that the cable will shift just a bit and everything will shut down. Anybody else seen anything like this? Thanks.

I've heard of that problem a handful of times with various ESC's. With some many wires in a modern brushless setup there are many places for something to be wrong. I suggest you try another sensor cable of a different brand 1st. If its still no good then chase up a replacement as you don't want your car to lose power mid race.

Thanks, Punch is not what i was lacking, i was lacking top end, and only got the same topend when i geared it at 3.7fdr, and this would match the gt2 topend, there were guys with LRP TC Spec, and SP GT1.1 that had the same topend as me. I was just expecting alot more from this speedo with timeshift and turbo.

Something must be wrong. On the weekend I raced 10.5 on a big track and had equal top end to SPX's but had more punch. What motor are you using?
