Default Voltage Booster

Hi Guys,

I'm taking delivery of a 12th scale this weekend, I'm planning to use my Teking RS Pro. Will I need to use a voltage booster to en sure that the Radio gear gets sufficent voltage?

Would one of the Tekin Team kindly give me some advice on settings for the following UK track. Track is approx 40-45 metre straight (approx 130-140 ft) and is very grippy



Will be running a Trinity Epic D3 (13.5) in a HB TCX

My thoughts are (correct me if wrong)

End point 18000 (approx)
Start 3500 (approx)
Ramp 3
Boost 50
Turbo 16
Timing 50
Profile 3
Delay 0.5

No timing on motor and approx gearing 7.12

thanks for your help

john

I haven't run 13.5 in a while but here is my input:

Your start RPM doesn't need to be so low for such a large track. 5,000 or even 8-9,000 RPM for a 13.5 on a large flowing track will be fine. Go to like a 22,000-25,000 end. Decrease your turbo delay to about .3 or so. You might want to start with less turbo than 16. Not sure on the gearing.

I'll give that a shot, it's a duo 3 and a tekin 17.5 that I have. I'll set these both to 0. I'll try those settings with turbo and adjust motor timing from there, looks like James and I for trans ratio and gearing are setup the same so I'll be giving this a shot tonight when I go race, thanks for the help Randy.

One question aren't we "supposed" to not go over 60* timing with boost and endbell timing combined? What about when you add the turbo? Or does that just actually ramp up the rate of boost it's giving until max boost / rpm?

Thanks for the help even though this was in the on-road section.

60 is a relative figure,yes. However in some cases it can work. You're flirting with a line of failure...sounds like racing

Even though my question wasn't answered directly the info on gearing and drag brake helped. I'm running around 6.0 on the 10.5 and all ESC boost, 0 timing on the motor, so it is super torquey. I'll see if I can find a setup nearly as fast with timing on the motor and see if it smooths out the drag brake any.
