Start by inserting your end rpm value, then hit the calculate button, after that select your start rpm value from the available start rpm values which were calculated by the software.

I'm trying to get a feel for what kind of process will be required to try and run a spec and non-spec 17.5 class at the same race.
It is simply a setting within Version 208, when zero timing/boost is set there is an LED sequence indicating this setting at Neutral. So if you are running another class you can connect to the hotwire and readjust the settings and be ready to go. Then repeat for the Stock SPEC class etc....

Would any of the asphalt setups from team tekin be usable as a starting point? They are mostly 13.5t and this being a 9.5t.

This is my setting with a 8.5R in a small/med asphalt track for TC:

FDR ~ 8.5 to 8.8
Sensored mode
Boost = 40
Turbo = 0
Delay = 0
End RPM = 20000
Start RPM = 5xxx
Ramp = 2
motor temp ~ 65C

I didnt set turbo since the straight for this local track is very short. This setup can keep up with 5.5R without turbo.

And believe me, his wasn't the only turbo equipped RS setup out there.
i actually agree to both comments..
you CAN run turbo on a track with a < 100ft straight (i'm using it on a 70-75ft straight)..
however, without turbo and diff gear ratio i am no slower and hence could say turbo was a waste.
on the small tracks, i think the only benefit with boosto is being able to run the motor cooler

with 0 delay your using turbo first as everyone knows but you are wasting the timing boost as it is probable not all being used but with out a data logger know one knows

There are a lot of good team driver setups to be found here:

Randy,

i actually did use max timing and max boost two weeks agoo for a race in Rucphen; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DRBQnRHLBLQ
this however is a little nitro movie but does give a indication about the track.

motor became 80 degree C after a 7 min heat, so pretty nice! without this maxed boost and turbo i coudn't get to a proper speed with the LRP 10.5.
i did ofcourse start with a lower value to look at the temps but they never exceeded the 85C... so i think it is possible!

Default NO CAP?

Hey everyone. I just bought a used Rs-pro. I noticed it did not have a Power Capacitor on it. The instructions say that one must be used. Should I be worried?

Nominally the car will bog down with full timing and turbo cause it is to much timing at once

I generally like running max turbo now. i then use a lower turbo boost value and check the temps.
Found that it give more punch when at 1005 throttle. however remember this does depend on track layout.
Too much timing will make the motor bog down and sometimes even cog at low rpms.


The same principle apply from when randy first introduced this all to us:

1st motor end can timing. low speed
2nd timing boost. mid range
3rd turbo. top speed

start and end rpm determine where the mid range is applied

ramp rate dictates how quickly the mid range timing is applied: smoothness i would say.

Delay determines when the turbo timing is applied: again track size dependant, however i do like to run 0.0, but bare in mind that this only comes on when your finger hits 100% throttle, also depends on your gearing, generally gear for the midfeild which sometimes means that if you have a long straight the motor will mbe at max rpm for longer so watch those temps. increasing the delay generally reduces the temps due to the motor not being at 100% rpm for a shorter period.

NB: this works for me, no i'm not a grand master, i haven't won anything worth writing about (yet) so take it with a grain of salt if you wish.
