Maybe just drop a tooth or two on the pinion due to the difference in weight? (730g for 1/12, 930g for WGT). Or am I way off here?

Using a wider RPM window, and a lower turbo ramp would make it more smooth like an SPX. For example, 5,000-22,000 RPM range, turbo ramp 1 or 2. You will need to use a heavier FDR to compensate.

Thumbs up Tekin Brushless or Brushed!

Just wanted to mention FYI.
Using the Tekin RS brushless system for a brushed silver can motor just won 1st place in the TCS National Championship. He was a 16 year old and he blew away the field, everyone said who watched the race that his car just had more power than the rest of the field.
I too also used the same ESC and performance was flawless. I used it because I didn't have any good brushed ESC so I gave it a shot. Who knew?
So, what I'm saying is if you want to run a brushed motor you don't have to go out and buy another ESC if you have a Tekin brushless. If you do use it you will not be disappointed!
Just my 2$
Now back to our regularly scheduled programs!

Default KO radio settings

Hi,

I have a KO Eurus radio and I have forgotten what the throttle exp setting should be? +10%?

Also anyone with a good 17.5 limited profile set-up for 1C 12th scale racing V208? Average size track.


Thanks Greg G
