What about rotors? Does a high-torque rotor tend to give more braking?

AreCee, it looks as though your brakes are just fine, and you're not having any problems with yours.

We could go on like this forever, but perhaps we should take Randy's advice and "move forward".

Not you, not poking fun. It's an epidemic across every forum I use from people who have English (or American!) as their first language. You type it and spell it any way you like - we all need to live and let live.

At work, some of the things I do and say play similar havoc with the fundamental Laws of Physics and Mechanics, and the guys that know give me similar stick!! We are all good at something, and not good at everything.

You go on asking your questions EG, because what you find out increases all our knowledge.

I stopped the TC rat-race several years ago when the prices hit $400+ so I have little experience with modern TCs boosted or not.

You're correct that 1/12 scale and 1/10 pan cars are light and we only use brakes to avoid a collision and rarely ever apply them hard to turn.

No, no one is making fun of you but of the whole forum community for using lazy forum speak. I'm old school from way before computers and smartphones were used to write. Pen and paper writing made us pay attention to what we put down so others could understand our thoughts. Seriously, out of the four languages I speak English can be the most confusing.

It's all good and a never ending source of amusement.

Don't you wish we could go back to the days of wiper board speedos?

"a never ending source of amusement." You got that right.

You know, it is still possible to buy Parma resistors and microswitches, and brushed motors too!

So when 222 was available for download I did.
However, I still have 212 on my netbook and in my speedo's.
I'm going to race tomorrow. Question is should I update and go to 222 for smooth or stay with 212 in case I have an unwanted sensor issue?

use 222. if you don't like it you can always go back. 212 is still avalable in the new firmware. I think you will like it its much better in every way.

What class cars you running and motors? if thiers no hard braking spots from high speeds definitely use 222

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....

I'm happy you guys are fixing the sensorless issue. In my club main last night my sensor wire actually broke and the motor was then dead. It was completely my fault, I knew about the issue and neglected to put the old software back on

Default Stuttering at various RPM - RS Pro/Ballistic

I have a TLR 22, geared 30/76, running indoor on a small turf track. Novak Ballistic 13.5 with endbell timing at 15. My RS Pro, programmed with 212, stutters a lot. Here are ranged I have been tinkering with: timing advance is from 15-30, boost 30-50, turbo off to 15, starting rpm 3k, 5k, 8k.

First, what is the timing advance control on the left? How is it different from boost?

Second, if I set the timing advance higher than 15, I get a lot of stutter, sometimes right from the outset of rotation, but usually at some-point in the rpm range.

Maybe this is a question for a novak thread, but I strongly suspect it's a timing issue of some sort. Can the ESC tell me it's not sensing right?

I'm going to disassemble the motor, clean it with compressed air, and try another stator that I have to see if that helps.

Since I got the esc, there's been an intermittent a 0.5 delay at throttle coming on. What would cause that?

Tried a new receiver?
