2.7 is the new Hotwire software. As far as version 1.89 and 1.9x, that is the firmware upgrade for your ESC. But I was not aware there was a 1.9x firmware update already...

Randy?

I may be mistaken I did not have a CPU avalible at a race and used someone else's and the screen was layed out different maybe it was just different hotwire software....So 2.7 and 1.89 is what I should be using? Is 2.7 whats avalible on the website?

Currently the only version that is available to the public from me is 2.9/ 189

The team is using another version that has some 4 cell improvements.

Once we're satisified that it's as solid as 189 we will let you ALL know and post it on the site.

2.7 and 1.89 do not work together.

I am need of some guidance to make my VTA 415 fast. I have the 1.89 software. tekin RS, trinity DUO(red endbell 17.5). I want run it like i do my tekin 13.5 but i dont how to zero the timing on the motor itself so I can run the full boost without burning it out.. Basically i want to set my motor to zero degrees timing on the motor, install 1.89, max out the boost, and not burn out the motor. Some help would be nice. thanks in advance

I believe that the lowest advance setting on the motor is 12 degrees. I have my 17.5 duo geared at 3.87 and have 189 software lowest timing and it come off the track at 135.

The Duo 17.5 may not get to true zero on thge timing. We back the timing off as far as possible and run full boost. To back the timing off, loook at the endbell. There are three sets of three screw holes in the endbell. Loosen the three screwws, hold the can and turn the endbell clockwise until the last set of holes line up with the screws. Tighten the screw, then you're as close to zero as it gets. Max the boost. Back off several teeth on the pinion and start running. Sneak up a tooth at a time on the pinion until you stop getting faster. Check temps to make sure you don't overheat, but in my experience you'll stop getting faster before you start overheating with a Duo 17.5 on four cells.
