At 6.2 FDR what gearing are you running?

Thanks

Regarding your setup, your gearing is too low, and your start/end RPM's are too close. If you add any more timing, you'll run the risk of overheating the motor due to the very short RPM range where timing is being added.

Based on the FDR, I'm assuming that you're running 17.5's. A more normal setup is to run a FDR of around 6.2 (which I'm running), with a much larger RPM range. I don't have my ESC handy to check, but I think for 17.5, my RPM range is around 10,000 (perhaps a bit less).

If you think about it, it's much easier for the ESC to add timing to a motor that's spinning at a higher RPM, since the inertia of the rotor is very high. If the rotor is spinning slower, the motor has to work that much harder to add the timing, especially if the RPM range is so narrow.

Try it out - as with all things, different things work for different people, and if you have a setup your happy with, go with it. But you'll never know (without doing a bit of testing) if there's something better out there!

Good luck!

Out of curiosity, has anyone tried a 25.5 with timing advance yet? I have one that I'd like to tinker with, but not sure where to start. Maybe 4000 start, 10,000 end? If nothing else, it should be interesting.

This may be a dumb question but, there has a lot of boosters burning up in our club lately. Is there any issues associated with the new software that would cause this? Anyone else seeing this? Much appreciated.
