I know this is an old post, but was this on timeshift 7 and turbo on the rb-s?

also, I have found in the past, unloaded rpm is different to on-track performance. For eg. spx on profile 8, and tekin on max turbo/boost looks like its about to rip the tires off the wheels, but its on track performance is little gain, if any.

Wanted to say thank you to Team Wave for providing excellent customer service and great communication on an item that I sent in for repairs recently (repairs were needed because of something I did and not due to any fault of theirs).

anymore feedback from guys running the RB-S in 17.5 rubber touring? Esc settings or fdr? How about 4 cell aplication. Does anyone have a good starting point for World GT 13.5 on carpet?

First time out with RB-S 17.5

Setup:
Cyclone TC
DUO 2 17.5
FDR 5.5 - 5.3
Time Shift 4
Drive Profile 7
Brake Profile 7
Twin Turbo On 2x
Neutral Brake 1

Car is fast. Infileld is stupid quick.

I haven't played with the gearing that much yet, but motor seems to have an average temp of 180 - 190 deg.

You guys are not kidding about how much motor heat this speedo produces. Any suggestion on how to properly gear this monster? Perhaps, a good setup starting point which equates to good motor temp, but still produces great speed?

My last resort is putting a fan on the motor.

For 17.5T, gear ratio is about 3.8-4.6. Adding fan on the motor is recommend.

I can only assume that I was undergeared, which caused my motor temp to go 180-190? That being said, if I gear my motor to the recommended ratio above, temps will go down?

I was running between 5.3 - 5.5, and my motor temp was between 180-190. If I gear it heavier, wouldn't that equate to more motor heat?

Nevertheless, I will try the recommended gearing without the motor fan first. This is just to see if I was truly undergeared or not. Will post results when I get a chance.

Sorry for late reply been busy over xmas!! but it doesn't matter about time shift for total speed. When i tested the kv didn't change. So what time shift is for is when you run turbo it controls how much timing you have before turbo kicks in. So the reason people like running a high timeshift with turbo 2 is because there is so much raw speed available that you have to gear down so much that the difference between no turbo and turbo is larger. So to gain back that rpm before turbo cuts in you can run timeshift 6 to 7. i am finding for 17.5 you run between 5.2 to 4.8 fdr on rubberand time shift 4 to 7. That is with a big heatsink and fan. But with our new weight change this speedy i think will be faster as the k.v is there so less weight will push it there easier!! And the other day i ran 10.5 and people thought it looked like a mod. But my moral is that you gain punch on this speedy while having the same speed so it is fast through the infield. But i am learning that you do need a good battery.

It should probably be mentioned that compared to the linear series of motors, the Duo2 has much more peak RPM. From what I have seen the Duo2's are more prone to failure with excessive heat so I suggest you check temps regularly if you gear up.

Something I have noticed recently is that with the release of high RPM type speedies motors that where considered slower like the SP series now can match the performance of faster motors and usually handle heat better. I ran my Linear 17.5 RB-50 combo against my brothers Duo2 RB-S combo and was only slightly down on overall motor performance with slightly more heat. Considering I could have safely geared up still for more performance it makes you rethink the comon knowledge that the Duo series of motors are king. I suggest anyone getting an RB-S to try out try and get a combo with a spec motor. I think you will be blown away by how fast it can be on that speedo.

I believe it is just a refinement of the 1.1 software. Myself and another person who tested it back to back couldn't pick the difference in feel, but it did seem to slightly improve lap times if only by a tenth. It isn't the same software as what is in the RB-S. If you or a friend have a program card I suggest you try it out.

Nah TeamWave don't tend to be as OPEN about the details of their software or hardware like other brands. In the end its best to try something out for yourself as whats best for you isn't always the best for everyone.
