Don't feel bad, I can't stand blinky, but it's starting to be the only classes run around here.

Default Cap on RS

Is there any advantage to running 2 caps on my RS? Would it help with temps at all. I am running a 7.5 in a sprint. I believe 7.5 is the RS's limit, correct? I thought I read that the cap is to help with the temps, so I thought using 2 might give me a little more cushion running the 7.5.

Thanks. I was doing some practice today and it got to 3 lights. I know that is not really hot, but I would like the extra cushion. Our heats and mains are only 4 min and I ran it for almost 10+.

I can't stand driving blinky either. also i think boosted is cheaper at the fact theirs so many "competitive" ESC's now with boost that batteries and motors don't matter so much anymore. buy a good esc, stick to any brnad name motor and any 2s 30+c lipo and your fine. got a half decent setup. as of right now im running tekin esc, duo 3 motor and thunder power batteries. and my cuzn is running tekin esc, duo 3 motor and turnigy nano-tech and you can barely tell any difference in our 2 cars, my batteries do weigh a little less though. but his batteries are $60 cheaper a pack. and my next set for this reason will be gen aces or nano-techs.

If you ran it for 10 minutes and it only had 3 LED's lit then I wouldn't change anything, especially if your heats and mains are only 4 minutes long. If anything, there's more HP to be had from your setup

Default brakes

Hey,

Is there any difference between altering the brake strength on the speedo or changing the brakes on the handset or is it basically the same?

I was running the new 223 software in my touring car last weekend and found the brakes kept locking! I was running the same settings as on my 212 and had the active brakes on. I ran 70% on the speedo brake strength and 85% on handset!

Active braking is VERY strong. Try turning active brake off if you were happy with your braking levels wih 212.

Default Tekin vs LRP

I am happy using teking on our track and it is fast. But recently competitors got new LRP SXX v2 and X12 engine. I am using Tekin RS + Tekin motor. We are racing at small track (straight 20m) with high grip. Using rubber tires. Driving the same HB TCX cars. But i have noticed that competitors with LRP has almost the same top speed but their acceleration is better. Also they accelerate from starting possition faster. The question is how to get better results with teking and take advantage of LRP racers, because now I am winning only on driving and on their mistakes, but not on my car performance. My setup:
Tekin RS + Redline 17.5 engine
Lipo battery 7,4v
FDR 5,75
ESC software 223
Motor timing 0
Boost 48
Start RPM 2400
End RPM -8000
Turbo delay 0,2
Turbo Max
Ramp 3
Throtle profile 3

Please share your experience how to make my car be faster. Thank you.

I haven't tried a Tekin motor in boosted yet, but my guess would be that you are over-timed. With max turbo and almost max boost, with your start and end rpm you are effectively on max timing right when you are coming out of the corner. Timing kills bottom end power - especially when applied to quickly.

I would change the setup to:

Motor timing 0
Boost 50
Start RPM 5000
End RPM 15000
Turbo delay 0,2
Turbo 10-15
Ramp 2

There was a thread on this last year where it was stated that the Tekin will only apply a maximum of 60 degrees software timing and anything over that would be ignored.

It was not stated explicitly by Randy but the way I read it, it was hinted that going over 60 could be disadvantageous due to the way the software dealt with “extra” timing.

Towards the end of last season I started to reduce the timing applied to my 10.5 X12 and got noticeably better results on the in-field. Adding the boost and turbo together I am in the range 50-53, with less aggressive throttle and ramp profiles than stated above.
