To the best of my knowledge it does not exist yet.

In developpement maybe??

The advantage of this speedo is that you can set 2 different setup before getting to the track if you do not have a laptop, and switch as necessary between C1 and C2 just using the push button on speedo.

There are apparently too many issues integrating the different smartphone/tablet operating systems with the hotwire.

Windows 8, which is supposed to integrate desktops/laptops/tablets/smartphones is what currently holds promise.

Pulled a stupid reverse polarity for a split second spark the other night at practice. Running an RS Pro with a Redline 10.5.

After realizing the bonehead move I quickly regained composure and plugged everything in properly, all worked fine for the rest of the night. The following night for race night, went to turn on same system and it wouldn't ring out. All led's were lighting up as if it was getting the throttle/break from the rx. Swapped out to a redline 13.5 and all worked again.

Is it possible to burn up a motor and not the ESC with a reverse polarity charge? What would burn up and is it user serviceable?

I guess your sensor board, but it is strange that you manage to use it that evening, then again it could be totally not connected and your motor was going to give up either way.

It's not likely. However it could have taken out the motor sensor board. From the sounds of it this may be the case.

Here is my set up:
drag brakes: 0
limiter: 30
neutral width: 25
profile: 3
throttle min: 10
brake min: 15
timing advance: 100
push control: 25
boost: 40
turbo: 20
ramp: 3
turbo delay: 0
start rpm: 8000ish can change to 5000ish depending on track
end rpm: 20000ish

You need to remember that your batteries are a big part of your speed, I run 60/65C in my class.
also your motor will be hotter, it is hot here at present 25/30 degrees and my motor is around 70/80 with fan on of course, battery at 40ish and speedo 35/40ish.

Hope this works for you, you should have plenty power with this.
Hi,

With this set up what is 0 timing on your X12 - 4 dot, 3dot ?

Also why do you run current limit so low and your neutral width so wide ?

I run a very similar set up but with 4 dot timing insert, curent limit 85 and neutral width 10, My FDR is just over 8 - It is quick but am always trying to find improvements.

Thanks in advance

Hi Jamie

We have one of our top racer in the club who knows the Tekin very well through extensive tries.

2 dots straight is 0 timing on X12

Neutral width: lower values make the throttle dead band more sensitive, we find that with a higher value, we can run a smoother speed all the way in bends and turns.

limit: Adjust throttle response during acceleration, again we get a smoother acceleration coming out of turns and we can accelerate sooner.I run between 30 and 40 depending on tracks.

What car are you running for a fdr of 8?

Why don't you try my setup to see if you can feel a difference, I run on asphalt purpose tracks with medium/high grips.

Regards

Default Hotwire smart phone app - Android first, Apple later ?

I am under the impression that the Hotwire app will be available first for phones based on the Android platform. Is this true? (This is good for me)
Is this something that will be available soon, like in 2 months, or when?

To the best of my knowledge, they haven't officially acknowledged development of an app for either platform.

I will try it this weekend. (I run a MI4CX)

One thing everyone always criticises is how on / off the tekin feels so maybe changing to these settings will smooth it out.

My only concern is that using 0 timing on the motor will cause too much heat so will definitely use a heatsink / fan.

Looking forward to testing !!

Hi Jamie

Of course, I always run a fan but no need for heatsink on speedo.

The motor gets quite hot (70/75) make sure you check the temp after a couple of minutes, just in case your ratio is a little off in comparison of AE
TC6.

Hope you will find a difference.

temps were around 140f.

Thanks for the help! Car is running well.

Why using such high timing on motor? the total of boost+turbo+timing should be at 60, why not reducing the timing on motor and increase the rest.
Exemple: 4 motor timing + 40 boost+ 16 turbo or 0 motor+ 40 boost+ 20 turbo.

Try this and tell us your throughts, I am not a fan to push the timing on motor too much.
