No, the issue is that now that everyone has boost/turbo people are pushing it to the limit and beyond to try and realize some advantage. Some racers grew used to having a distinct advantage, and now that the playing field is leveling out and technology is stabilizing some feel the need to stretch the envelopes of timing advance and gearing.

It's no different than the pre-timing days when you'd gear to the moon on the ragged edge of motor temps...just faster.

No. Only the heat and power handling capability. The software on the other hand does make a difference. The new Vegas 212 is the smoothest yet. Make sure he gets it flashed to the latest.

I think you mis-interpreted his question. He stated that (voltage?) boosters were burning up when using 212. Not sure what timing advance or gearing has to do with that issue.

Total opposite for us at our local track, going back to 203

Thanks for the help!

I did indeed. I took "boosters" as referring those using boost/turbo vs. going spec, as I have heard the term being used.

On single sell adjusting the timing boost too high can blow a booster? That doesn't make sense to me?

Out of all the boosters that went bad in our club the last 2 weeks only mine was with the new duo3 motor... The other 4 were all duo2's running very similar to prior version timing settings?

I am not blaming Tekin it is entirely possible that the 10 dollar hong kong things just have a short lifespan, I think we are just trying to see if we are doing something wrong.

I've had the same TQ Booster and Tekin RS in my R5.1 for over a year now.
It runs most every week with no issues ever.

I have seen a few of the HK and [email protected]#$k Boosters fail.

I don't know about booster caps burning but, I have the same peoblem on a new speedo that was on my old one. the day starts off fine running practice laps thru several battery packs and the temp on the motor not going above 175f. And lo and behold latter in the afternoon the speedo won't start the car to rolling. It has to be pushed before it will run and if it stops again the same thing. Now I have tried 6 sensor wires, one brand new in the package, Three different brand motors and still there is a dead spot in all of the motors. If the rotor gets to a certain position it will not turn over, although the speedo lights up like normal. I have done the test by turing the wheels to see if the leds light to show the sensors are working and they are.
MY tekin is in the shop waiting for word, in the mean while this was a borrowed speedo from a friend that started doing the same thing as mine late in the day.
Does any one have any idea as to what is going on, I have talked to tekin and they aren't sure and I am considering that maybe the problem is in the v212 program since this has only happened since I changed over.

Got a weird thing happening with my setup and can't pinpoint it, so time to ask the forum for some advice.

I'm finding that when you roll off the trigger from 100% to say 90% for a long sweeper the car slows up much more, almost feels like it's applying a drag brake it's that bad. I could of course just cook the tires and keep into it, but....

Cyclone TC, Speedpassion V2 17.5t, 212 FW, FDR 6.76
Boost 50
Start 4600
End 12000
Turbo 12
Delay 0.2
Ramp 2.0
NW 10
Push 30!

Have even nudged the throttle trim slightly biased to throttle.

I can only "assume" that without the extra 12 deg of timing when you're off WOT it is enough to loose the big rpm's...ideas anyone?

Last resort is redo my config, bring the FDR back toward say 4ish and try dropping the turbo...

Good day!

I had a simmilar with my cars and I use 30-35 push to help fix it.

I should have read your post closer, I see you have push.

G'day Bud,

I "believe" push is more for total roll off of throttle, eg coasting, this is just when rolling off the throttle ever so slightly...

It's most probably because your turbo is "disengaging" You lose that power almost immediately

Sounds like I've just gotta get into it much quicker
