Default 222 files

Hmmm,

I run 1/12th and believe brakes are for the weak (no pun intended). Anyone have the files for me, I missed the initial download, and I'd like to try out the new throttle response!

Cheers
Julius

I'm starting the campaign to have the Knight Rider lights, and call the software KITT 2012 - Vegas now seems so last year!!
I completely agree with your highlit topics . The braking is fine, they're very strong and their stopping power is impressive on the track here and there.

I also run 1/12 and WGT and found the brakes way too strong in 212 and after downloading 222 I almost had to dial down the brakes to near zero or get rammed.

See if you can borrow a transmitter from someone to try
Even people with other transmitters were having issues. how much traction is their where you race?

The brakes ARE weak in high traction situations. like the end of the straight in tc boosted and in indoor offroad carpet. yes for your very light agile 1/12 and 1/10 pan cars the brakes would be fine.

Exactly. i like how people are judging me and you like we don't know what were talking about. I bet you if they raced that weekend with the brakes we had they would complain to.

Stop bickering over it. Some guys wanted 212's brake power back and we can do that easily. This reason along with the issue that we managed to not turn back on sensorless mode was reason enough for us to remove 222 from the site.

Brakes along with every other thing on a race car is driver dependent. I don't panic brake my car at the end of the straight for example. Someone who waits until the last minute to out brake another driver may not like the amount of brake power. This is usually only an issue on highly boosted 17.5 setups. 17.5's are horrible brake force generators to begin with. If you were using a 10.5 or even a mod this wouldn't be an issue at all.

Moving forward guys....

Hey Randy, I was planning on using my 17.5 D3 for boosted touring car this summer, at least until I read this. Would a Redline 13.5 have more braking power or should I just opt out for a 10.5 or mod motor? The staright is over 120 feet long on medium grip asphalt. Thanks for any help.

120ft isn't all that long really. I'm sure you'll be fine. As far as what motors give better braking power the lower the turn the better the brakes.
