Just to clarify, reduce a tooth for 5 deg of boost, is for 48p?

Take your starting gearing with no boost and go down each time you add say 5 degrees of boost.

Motor temps are motor temps. If the motor is too hot, you're overgeared. The motor should feel good all the way through the run. If you're falling off towards the end of the run you're probably overgeared.

Too much timing can cause roughness in the infield.

I dropped two teeth in by 2wd buggy running 13.5's just by adding 10 degrees of boost.

My Novak 13.5 reached 312 today. The stickers melted off, it was REAL fast though.

Lesson learned, never mess with boost/gearing when your setup isn't working. Because when you get it working and start running "real" laps that 150 you thought the motor was coming off at turns into 300+ and melts stickers.

Was fast though. 4.11 FDR 12 Motor, 12(+15) Boost.

To my surprise, the ESC was barely warm to the touch.

Adam?

This is probably not the issue you're having, but just in case, turn on your transmitter and car, and roll the spur gear by hand. You should see the last three LED's pulsing in sequence somewhat dimly as you roll the spur. If they're not pulsing, your ESC isn't getting any signal from the sensors. It might account for the behavior you're seeing on the track. If they are pulsing when you roll the spur by hanjd, squeeze the trigger lightly, those three LEDs should be pulsing even as the motor picks up some speed. If you see those LED's go out as the motor picks up speed, you're in hybrid mode instead of sensor mode. That could also account for what you're seeing on the track.

Probably not the problem, but worth a look to rule it out.

One other thing to check... don't get insulted, I wouldn't even mention it if I hadn't done it myself a few times... Once you've got all the settings where you want them in the hotwire interface, don't forget to send them to the ESC. I've made that mistake three or four times... Wasted a qualifier that way once... I took a few teeth off the pinion, went into hotwire, cranked the boost up, then unplugged without actually transmitting the new settings first. Went out on the track three teeth undergeared. By the end of the warmup laps I'd figured it out, but too late to run back and reset it...

Again, probably not your problem, but worth ruling it out.

with the 189 software, does the timing boost start to work at high rpm or is it throughout the entire range?

The whole range. It's just additional timing built in, it doesn't "come on" at a certain point.

None. Timing is timing. Don't consider it "boost". The boost is the extra timing you don't see. When your working with the timing on the speedo it's a direct relationship to the timing on the motor. Some people like motor timing, some like speedo timing. It's all the same. I like full speedo timing, no motor timing, and rolling out low.
