Default V203 vs V208

Quick question:

The link provided is the Jeff Cuffs set-up for V203 using 2C Lipo. Will this be a proper starting set-up for a 1C Lipo 12th scale running 17.5 limited profile.

Thanks Greg G

I am hoping somebody can help me here, I think I'm in the right spot to ask this. But will a boosted 10.5 motor running the 208 software be compareable to a standard esc with a 5.5 motor. The reason why I am asking is I have been going back and forth to either running stock or mod and I dont have standard esc.

depends on track. We have a 120+ ft straight and had a guy try 10.5 boost in mod and he was slow traffic everywhere especially the infield where our torque would kill him, we usually run 4.5

Hi guys.

I am looking at starting to run Modified locally and also around the state/s here in AUs.

I currently have an RS not and RS Pro.

Even though the motor rating is 5 turn s on the RS it seems not a lot of people are running the RS in mod, they tend to use the RS pro. I do not plan on using a motor any lower that 5.5.

Will my RS be able to handle this competetivly?

Not likely. The RS is rated to a 5.5 in a 2wd application only like 2wd buggy.

For TC mod you will need the RS Pro.

What is a safe mod motor for a regular RS in 4wd touring? 8.5? 7.5?

I asked this in another thread, but would like to know your opinions on the redline motors compared to others on the market, I am getting another esc and motor for my sc10ft that is coming. It will be a 17.5 motor and of course am really leaning to another RS controller. Thanks all.

I'm running the Novak ballistic 17.5 in all my offroad stuff. These motors have tons of torque so you can gear up a little for speed and still have plenty of low end power. A couple of the guys at my track are running the Duo 2's and they seem to work well also. I don't know about the tekin motor as I burned mine up at the snowbirds. So I switched to the duo 2 for TC.

Thank you macdude, I have had great experience with the Novak motors, but have switched to Tekin speed controllers and was curious to what people thought of the redlines, thanks dude.

Default Too much timing

After reading the last 25 pages of posts, I have seen several guys posting talk about 60+ degrees of timing, this is not good, so I wanted to post an exerpt from RC CAR ACTION...
"With each coil occupying 120 degrees of the circle, and its center being zero degrees of advance, there's only an opportunity to apply 60 degrees of either advance or retard timing. If the speed control tried to apply 61 degrees of advance, the actual outcome would be 59 degrees of retarded advance on the next bank of coils. So contrary to popular belief, you can indeed have "too much of a good thing," and there is a set physical limit to just how far a speed control and/or motor can go."
So, if you are programming a ton of advance into the speedo then adding more via the motor you may find yourself boosting down the straight only to cross into a ton of retarded timing and come to a screeching crawl.... So next time somebody tells you to push past 60 degrees total timing, think twice!
Just my 2 cents......
