Hi Randy,

I'm close to maiden my TC with full tekin combo (rs pro+6.5T)

Went to 189, just wondering if you can take a look at my settings ?

I think I should delay immediate reverse

Thanks a lot for your time,

CÚdric

Hey,

I'd turn off reverse as well. MT 1 is the suggested setting.

The motor is toned down nicely and is very driveable, but the ESC seems to get a little hot - 160 - 170 after about 5-7 minutes. The motor is temping at 140 - 150 for the same timeframe. Gearing on the motor is 11.05. (84 / 19)

Anything setting I can adjust that won't generate as much heat in the ESC?

Would adding physical timing on the motor change the heat issue on the ESC? (I'm going to try this at practice on Tuesday)

Does using a current limit cause more heat in the ESC?

Would using "dual mode" be gentler on the ESC?

Using a 7.5 or 8.5 is better suited to this track, but I've got the 5.5 at the moment and that is what I am working with.

Any info is appreciated.
thx
With that fast of a mod motor definitely put a fan blowing on your speed control posts because they act like heat sinks. If that does not get the temp down you will have to ugly up your body a little. Just above and in front of your speed control you will need to cut your a body a little bit. Cut a small area of your body and pull that section up in the air flow like a ram air scoop. You will be surprised how the additional airflow will keep temps down. Of course this is all based on the fact that your motor is geared around the right FDR.

That's most likely it right there. Different radios are more sensitive to it than others, but if the ESC isn't seeing neutral then it won't apply the drag brake. Try NW 10 and see what happens.

Drag break only kicks in at nuetral. When you are at half throttle you will not get drag break as the car decelerates from full throttle to half throttle.

Running the Hotwire on vista requires an extra "trick". Here's the link for what to do.

You'll first need to change your PC settings so you can view "hidden" files. To do this go to Control Panel, then Folder Options. Click on the View tab, then choose "Show hidden files and folders".

Hey, Randy!

I need a setup for 17.5 1/12th. I was running the LRP SPX and was almost as fast as the other cars running an SPX. (it all boiled down to who had the best motor) I picked up a Tekin RS Pro and hot wire setup but my car was faster with the SPX. I'm sure I just don't have the correct profile in the speed control. Any tips?

Crashby,

Do you have 189 software? What motor are you using?

At the birds most of our team was running 189 with 0 motor timing and full boost timing of 30 degrees.

Let me know what motor you're using.


If you're Hotwire doesn't work on your vista see if it's 32 or 64 bit. Currently the Hotwire is only compatible with 32 bit.
