Ran a checkpoint 5.5 with the regular RS in Touring car. Started with a 7.25 fdr, but it got a little unhappy w/ about 45 seconds to go. Moved to 7.90 and no problems
Running the 208 using the #2 profile which adds timing to the motor, but cannot remember how much.

Came off around 140 motor temp, 125 speedo temp
outside temperatures were mid 80's

"Unhappy with 45 secs to go..."

What does that mean? Equipment looks like it was OK based on temps.

The tlayout of the track had a 180 degree turn coming off the straight, so had to go full brakes, then get back on it, with about 45 secs to go, it started hesitating getting back on the throttle, so I had to baby it the last 3-4 laps as I was worried something was not right.

i use them more to stop the sensor wire being damaged, not had the plug ripped out yet, (fingers crossed) in my 415.

Dear Tekin,
Please take my name off of you’re website and anything else you might use it for. I did not give you permission to use my name for any type of advertising. I did not put anything down on my sponsorship sheet nor did they announce the type of speed controller I was using.

Thank you,
Kelly Bean

From a performance point of view, is running 198 with timing set to zero the same as running 208?

Thanks

poor you.... most ppl that are lucky enough to get sponsorship would do anything to keep it yet you say ( dont use my name here or there).
Gee I feel so sorry for you. There are millions of ppl out there that are good enough to get sponsorship yet dont and here you are with it and complain about something small....
