Did you even bother to ask one of the guys running the newer software if they could help you out and program your ESC? Probably not...racers are generally really cool about helping each other out with stuff like that. Try asking.

Others that use it in a TC have the same tempeture and they have constant acceleration and speed so i don't think it can be motor fade. I have heard of someone (club member) using a rs pro without any timing advance (zero timing) and oddly enough he had the same problems as well after 2-3 minutes ( 30 degreesC outisde). he put in an old spx or something and speed was constant again. Could some esc be very sensitive to heat? I am using an rs-pro so heat should not be a problem with a 10.5t?
For me on my Speed passion 17.5t it starts at 50C and the fade increase is noticable for every 5C the temp goes up. The fastests laptimes stay the same but the throttle is so mushy its very hard to drive consistent laps. The solution is to add motor cooling or lower timing.

Thanks, will try that as well. Motor cooling will be difficult as there is no room in the rear pod of a pancar but i will try lower timing. I think it is still weird why this happens to me and not to other cars running a motor that is way hotter then mine and they don't seem to have any problems with it.

Like i said before, even someone at my club experienced it using zero timing but i will try anything to resolve this problem. It seems some random anomaly. He adviced me to send it to tekin to let it check out. The ones that came back from tekin didn't seem to have that problem anymore.

Then you'll have to wait like the rest of us.

It has been mentioned that there should be no difference in overall speed so if you're being hit by cars running the new software...you're driving too slowly.

It's not possible that the fan was drawing one cell down more than the other. Plus, if it were, it would be such a minuscule difference, you wouldn't notice. If you don't have any slots in your receiver I would just solder the fan to the battery post.

Why did the KO radios give you trouble? I have the erus and haven't had any issues with any speed controls. Now I have seen that some servo's even the digital ones don't like the speed of the radio and tend to chatter until you turn it down. But there are very few like this.

Anyway, just curious what the issues where.

thanks

Even if it is only a 17.5 that is being run? The reason I ask is one of our club vetrans is recomending me to shrink wrap my posts on my touring car running a Orian Vortex 17.5. His reason is there is not a lot of load so there is not mutch heat being produced. I would like to know what you think about this. I just got this and whant to do the right thing.

Thanks

Give me a better reason TO shrink the posts. If the esc is mounted properly there is NO reason to do this.

Thanks for the quick reply. The reasoning is to protect them from shorting but I have since rotated the esc so the posts are as close to the center as posible so impact is unlikely.

Just because somebody is a veteran doesn't mean they know what they are talking about.

The new software shouldn't be any faster. It mainly just adds in the new ROAR legal profile for non-boosted stock racing. So something else must be the issue. If it needs to be adjusted I'm sure they can do that for you without uploading the new software to your RS.
