hey jay, i would not worry. we have guys running around 92mm roll out and I am at like 105mm in 17.5 it just depends on the motor and if it is torque or rpm motor. just watch to see if the car is slow out of the corners and the lap times. also how much it falls off. in 8min it should not be more the .5sec

I switched back to my Tekin last night (had been running a Speed Passion because it had more rip). Installed v212 (had no problems), got my baseline setup and then started messing with the minimum throttle. It definitely helps a lot with the off-neutral feel. Its hard to call it more rip, because it doesn't make much difference if you only lifted a little bit. But in hairpins, after braking or coming off neutral, it helps. I was running 25 minimum throttle by the end of the night in 17.5.

After getting my baseline setup, I tried my new Duo3 motor as well. WOW. That thing is a beast. It's very similar to the Duo2... Just faster and more torque. The combo of the Duo3 and v212 was killer.

Here in the US, carpet tracks generally have WAY more traction than others . Running small tires is a way to be fast. At one of the recent big trophy races here people were running the tires all the way down to the rims

Didnt realise you could cut them that small, i thought you start to hit the rim at around 44 or something.

With the newer wheels, you start hitting plastic at 38.0mm

I believe the newer big rims are 38 or 39mm. Older wheels were even smaller than that.

I just happen to have some old style Jaco rears and new style CRC. Both ore brand new never run tires.

----------------------Outside rubber------Rim

CRC ----------------------48.5mm--------37.5mm
Jaco----------------------52.0mm--------35.0mm

The old Jacos have lots of rubber.

Hey guys, having some trouble getting my green light flashing

Ive selected Timing profile 1 on the hotwire, affirmed that the tp on the esc is led 1. i get two flashing lights on the esc, but no green light to tell me its on the stock profile. I assume im simply overlooking something.
Any help is appreciated.

Zero Timing profile on the newest software [firmware v212] has TWO blinking lights at neutral, so show the difference from firmware v208, which had a problem.

Sounds like you've got it set up just fine.
