- Go to Control Panel
- Go to Programs and Features
- Highlight Tekin HotWire
- Click Uninstall
- Follow Uninstall Instructions
- Reboot
- Go to C:\Program Files and make sure the "Tekin Hotwire" folder has been removed. If not, delete the folder
- Do the following if you do not have "Show Hidden Files and Folders" enabled
{
- Go to Control Panel
- On the left hand side click "Classic View"
- Go to Folder Options
- Click on the View Tab
- Choose the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button
- Click OK
}
- Go to C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files replace [USERNAME] with your username and make sure the "Tekin Hotwire" folder has been removed (seems like it often doesn't with Vista). If it hasn't then delete the folder
- Install New Version
- If you enabled showing Hidden Files and Folders and no longer want them showing make sure to undo the changes above
Great help, thanks

I'm runnig an rs pro with a 13.5 orion vortex fdr is 4.93 and the speedo is set up with drag brake 4, brake strength 100, Neurtal width 10, throttle profile 5 and timing 70. I've got it in dula mod as i dont really understand the whole timing thing. I'm just a lowly club racer Any help would be most welcome oh and the track is fairly large

I assume you have hotwire, that setup is pretty close, turn the limiter down to 90% and watch the temps.

When you get the new firmware that is coming out, it will be even faster.

Default you mean duo right?

you mean you have a 13.5 duo right? the blue can? in order for you to benefit from the boost you need to be in sensored only mode other wise the esc is only going off the timing of the motor. That is probably why your car was flat the other day as you said in your pm. start at ten degrees on the can and maybe 20 on the boost and gear down a couple of teeth and try it then adjust up or down from there. MAKE SURE YOU WATCH THE TEMP!

You can run in either mode but the gearing will be different and you'll have less timing in hybrid mode. Also the brakes are a little weak in hybrid mode with the high wind motors like 13.5 and 17.5's.

I rolled at 2.40 at Riders last time I was there. You'll have to gear up if you run hybrid mode.

On most 13.5's a good starting point is 25 to 30 degrees of motor timing/boost timing combined.

Timing is timing, either way you get there you'll be fine.

If you're looking to get the most of out the high turn sensored motors you should be in sensored only mode.

Hey guys,
I was just wondering can anybody tell me what is the advantage of running ceramic bearings in a brushless motor. I know this is a esc page, but I have a brushless texin motor(17.5). I heard it made more free, but some people told me otherwise. Can anyone help.

Shawn
