And believe me, his wasn't the only turbo equipped RS setup out there.
Interesting. Where can I find these settings? I should like to test it out.

I used Randy P's 13.5 profile this past sunday, For a track size around 120x80 guessing.

outside temp was around 91
after 8min main final motor temp was 200
Only thing i changed was i set motor timing: 32
T3 FDR:4.49


what base temp should i shot for?

are you serious???

way to low number in FDR, and way too much motor timing,

try 4 to 12 on motor (start with 4), and raise the fdr up to say 6.0 to 7.0 have a play around with fdr for your track.


200F is way too hot. you dont want any more than 180F max 160 to 170F is best

Thanks again, Rob.....

Last weekend the weather was really hot, I came off from 6 min main 170-180F no fan just a clip-on heatsink with two braking zones on the current track layout.

My drive profile is 4 BTW. Your FDR is 6.0 it might be too high, mine was 8.1~8.3.

I think it's on the Tekin site under set-ups.

Rubber TC class
DUO 13.5 middle hole timing - 10 degrees
FDR - 7.7
TP - 5
NW - 10
Boost - 50
Turbo - 10
Delay - 0.0
S RPM - 5300
E RPM - 18500
Ramp 2.0

Thanks. I'll have a look there.
Looks good. I'm curious about the delay time though. I thought "0" delay was a no-no?

It can be if your FDR is too low or the start RPM's are set too low and/or too close.

This setup sorta flips the traditional boost then turbo pecking order. In this setup, the Turbo comes in immediately at full throttle, then boost starts rolling in after the higher set Start RPM is reached. You MUST run a higher FDR when using this setup or it will feel soft and run HOT!!!

There are many ways to skin a cat with the RS.

Hmmm. I like the sound of that. I may test drive it. Should be a benefit where I run.

So what are you talking about for a high FDR?

Thanks for the intel.

FDR really depends on track and your motor. I ran around 8.0 with an Orion 13.5 on a flowing 140ft track. I would start a DUO or SP taller than the Orion or LRP motor. I tried the Orion with more gear and it didn't like it. It seems to be an RPM based motor and the lighter gearing really seemed to wake it up and help it run cooler.

Like always, run a few laps and check your temps when trying out any new setups. Run a fan if you can to help combat overheating issues.

Hi all,

Need some help about where to start on the Tekin RS settings. Going to run a LRP X11 9.5T stock spec motor in an xray t2 009 running rubber tires. Mostly asphalt small and medium sice track racing. Anyone got a good pointer where to start?
