Lap times suffered big time. Id say I lost a second at least per lap

Mine didn't feel flat. Flat would be great. Mine had no boost or turbo whatsoever. Not top end

I'll give the EPA thing a try. Thanks!

Yeah if the EPA doesn't do it I would send it in for testing. Sorry its giving you fits.

Good luck.

I was talking to Randy the other night on the chat on the Tekin web site - amazing feature and makes their support second to none! When I was talking to Randy I had been hoping to do my first run on carpet with my new RS Pro with 212 software but it didn't happen and I will be doing my first run on tarmac.

I am looking for a suitable starting point for 10.5 at this track;

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&so...01206&t=h&z=20

It is a 12-13 second lap with the straight about 100ft straight. As I said to Randy I was looking at starting the indoors with Atsushi's 11.5 setup;

Motor = HPI Flux Pro 10.5 or Tekin Redline 10.5
Firmware = 212
boost = Max (think that is 52 on the scale)
start rpm = 4608
end rpm = 12009
turbo = 10
turbo ramp = 2.0
turbo delay = .16
drag brake = 12
profile = 5

I believe that the other guys at the track have been running 6.5 FDR with SP ProStock speedos and GM 10.5's

After all that my questions...

Is this a good starting point outdoors for 10.5?
Am I right that Max Boost means 52 on the scale in the software?
Should I be looking at extending the end RPM?
What does Profile mean when set to 5?

Thanks in advance and sorry of some of these things have already been discussed the the past...

Does Jeff himself or anyone else have and able to post his Reedy boosted 17.5 winning set up for the Tekin with the SP V3 motor?

To me that setup sounds like a cooked motor for a 10.5 on a tight technical track like that, especially with only a 100' straight and that much gear.

The max boost is 55. Profile 5 is the throttle profile, or the throttle curve. 5 is the most aggressive.

With a 100' straight and a 10.5 I don't think you are going to be using turbo much.

Make the changes in red and you should be fine. Gearing will be based on layout, lap times, and motor temps.

Randy, thanks for that... I know we had the conversation about physical motor timing via chat but when you say 'Motor timed at 0' do you mean out of the box timing or do I need to move the Redline or Flux Pro's timing to get 0 - is that possible as I thought most motors had some built in timing.

I could be making this all too complicated and should just go with your settings and see

move the motor timing to 0,in most application a boosted setup to much motor timing will create heat

What he said

Yeah Redline motors out of the box are set to 12. So set them to 0 by loosening the endbell and rotating it clockwise.

Sorry to harp on about this but I want to be sure so I don't fry a motor

The Flux Pro comes with a small amount of timing on it but from talking to the distributor even if you rotate all the way clockwise it will only get to 7 degrees.

For the Redline do I move it until the marker line matches up with the notch in the plastic backplate or do I go all the way clockwise to get zero?

Based on 7 degrees for the Flux Pro I am planning to go with my setup and check the temps... is that ok?

Again sorry for being stupid about this...

7 is not bad its when you get the 20+ on the motor so just start with a little lower timing boost,some of the markings don't line up 100% on the redline it will only move so far so just look at were the mark is to the notch is

Thanks for that... so my plan is to go with the following based on the Flux Pro at 7 degrees and I will look into running the Redline as well;

Motor = HPI Flux Pro 10.5
Firmware = 212
boost = 55 Changed to 45?
start rpm = 2400
end rpm = 15000
turbo = 10
turbo ramp = 2.0
turbo delay = .16
drag brake = 12
profile = 5

i would go to 40,5 turbo until you get a hold on temps,you will be surprised on what 1-2 deg of turbo will do.i like to start a little low cause you can always bring it back
