Tried recalibrating the esc to the radio but still wouldn't recognize throttle input, only brake. Tried reversing the throttle on the radio, same thing. Went back to TP3 and all was normal again. Toggled back and forth between TP3 and 2, everytime I select TP2 it does the same thing. Anybody else ever have a similar issue? It wasn't really a problem as I just ran TP3 and put neg expo in the radio, but still thought it was strange.

I think your car and speedo are telling you to man up and run a real profile. Its unboosted 17.5 run that on TP 5.

The only class I dont run on TP 5 is mod.

does anyone have any good starting points for a foam touring car with a 17.5

I am getting my doors blown off on the straight away and i'm coming off around 170 degrees.

I run on two tracks one with a 75 ft straight and the other closer to a 100. Looks like everything on Tekins website is for a rubber sedan so I don't know where to start even.

Thanks!

post your setup,if the straight is the only thing you are looking for then maybe need to try a different class cause its not drag racing

again this is for a foam sedan

start rpm 855
end rpm 10040
turbo delay .1
turbo 15
turbo ramp 1
boost 11
throttle profile 3

no I dont care just about the straight but the infield felt good... I have no idea where to start though just looking for help.

Thanks!

I would rather man up and run boosted, but everybody else wants to run spec. I got faster and much more consistent as I went down on profiles. Guess I'm just not the man you guys are.

Your boost is way way to low, give it more boost and gear down. I'll look tonight and see what I ran last year in foam. What brand of 17.5 are you running?

start 3-4k
end 12500
50 timing boost
motor what you have already
fdr 5.8 for the small track
6.2 for the bigger track with 5-10 turbo and 15k end.
ramp 2
delay .15
put both in the esc one in the C! and the other in C2 and you can try both in the same run

so on the shorter track you wouldn't use any turbo? Just making sure I got that right. I will definitely try the c1 and c2... will make it easy to make changes between tracks

Thanks!

With the Initial Throttle setting adjustments, I just leave TP on 3 all the time now.

What used to be the throttle profile (TP) led on the controller now changes between 5 preset boost settings and c1 and c2. Check this out here

As for storing to the C1 or C2 profile from the hotwire, you will have to do this separately. As in open up hotwire, select c1 then adjust the settings, then "apply" them. Close hotwire, not really necessary but I do it just to be sure the settings took. Re open verify your c1 settings then select c2 and repeat. Now you will have 2 custom profiles stored in the controller.

Hope this helps.
