In classes like 2wd offroad 212 brakes had room for improvement in feel and modulation. Now that spec racing is becoming more popular the team felt that the added driveability of the 222 brakes made for faster laptimes, something we're always looking to improve.
Thats really good Randy. I think this will be a very welcome addition to a good upgrade. It's also great to see Tekin taking a note of drivers and making amendments so quickly....othe rmanufacturers would probably say "ok, in the next revision" which would be months away.

Looking forward to the slight change !

Quick question about the wire posts on a standard: I'm running 12th scale 10.5/13.5 with and LRP X12. If I have the +'ve and -"ve battery posts covered with shrink wrap, is that going to cause overheating problems? I'll be running mild boost on an average sized track. The motor wire posts are not covered by shrink wrap. Thanks in advance!

You shouldn't cover any of the posts with shrink wrap. All 5 posts are used for cooling.

I cover mine slightly, have no issues what so ever with esc temps. I run boosted 17.5. I go maybe 5mm below the solder join onto the post with heat shrink, and its all 5 posts.

I wouldnt, the design is done so that these posts are effectivelt heat sinks. Regardless of what motor, keep them open and also position your speedo so you know it will get airflow to the posts as well.

Maybe I should explain how I have it setup. The posts aren't completely covered, I've soldered male bullets onto the tops of the battery posts and I've got heat shrink on the female bullets coming from the battery. I'd say the top 1/4 of the posts are covered. I'll keep an eye on temps (whenever I get a chance to run it) and report back.

Thanks.

Maybe, that's up to ROAR. The next version will of course be submitted and likely approved in time for Carpet Nats.

I saw it appear in my v222 install then disappear.
I'm not going to go into great detail about "what" it's doing other than to say it's giving you more braking power in high boosted setups with motor like 17.5's,etc.
V212 brakes were very good in boosted TC, but not so good everywhere else in our opinion. V222 brakes are excellent everywhere except boosted spec TC. Now you have both.

Are the "Timming Tab" setting incraments (ie. Boost:50, Turbo:10. etc.) the same between v212 & v222 to produce same motor performance? When initially tried v222, felt much smoother but slower on top end than the v212 carry overy settings. Great job on the new programming and any feedback is greatly appreciated.

the timing tab section is the same. it may seem slower because you dont have nearly as much of a "jerky" powerband now.

Thanks Jason

Why not just give the option of adjusting the feel. Like others have brake frequency adjustment. Or is that what the "active braking" adjustment is?

It's not that simple. I realize that might not be the answer you want but that's the answer I'm willing to give. Time and time again we've educated our competition, we've learned to keep the details quiet.

Fair enough.

Time line on release (pending ROAR approval)?
