Yeah I was going to start at 4 if I had to find out on my own. But that means I will be buying a bunch of spur gears to be able to test. Last year with the old firmware I had the motor timing all the way up on a DUO and ran a 3.12 FDR. Took a while to wind up but once it did it was fast. There weren't any slow sections of the track b/c it was so big.

Would it be 3.0 - 3.5?
3.6 was a good point on the track last year with GTB. Like Reen said I'm gonna start at about a 3.8-3.9 with boost and see how that works out.

Where is this track? I'm originally from Columbus and still have a lot of family there. I feel an extra visit coming on this summer...

We would love to have you! Track is only 60-90 min from CBus depending which part of Columbus it is. Have a couple big races. HPI Challenge and Ohio State Race. Great racing in electric TC. Couple A-mainers from the last ROAR on-road Nats are regulars and a couple of guys that are just as fast (sometimes faster) then them. We have a large group a notch below that too. It's located where Jon said above.

More info at http://thehobbyshoponline.com

One of the faster guys (but doesn't go to the big races often) is a longtime Tekin driver <- just to keep it on topic.

I got the RS Pro, and I really like the easy one touch setup. The Hotwire softwere is backorderd at my LHS, so I'll have to make do with what I have for now.

tested today the Tekin RS Pro with a Redline 10,5T
later tested the LRP X11 10,5T

Setup motor 0 and speedo 30 boost

I started on 5,0 gearing
verry good acceleration
Top speed a ltle bit lower on the end of the track. Tiers were not good so i will test this tomorow again.
motor Temp was about 122

After that geared to 4,8
Accleration a bit slower and top speed was the same as a LRP TC
still with no good tiers
Temp 140

After that tried 4,55
Acceleration still ok and top speed still the same
only big difference was the motor temp 167

After that motor timing om 15 and speedo on 15 boost.

Gear at 4,8
the same result as before

4,88
motor temp 140
a bit more speed

After that tried the lrp

gear 4,88
same speed
temp 130

gear 4,6
no good feeling of the speed. hath to stop after 4 minits.
temp was 120

Going to test it tomorow again this setup.
after that i will try 5,1 with the Tekin 10,5
with motor 15 and speedo 15
maby a bith higher. I love the acceleration in that gearing. missing a bit of top speed but i think its a lot in the tiers and now i'm driving with better tiers.
notist that i hath more speed and a better acceleration.

I drive 5 cell

here is the track.
http://erceracing.nl/algemeen/circuit.html

Try 15 on the motor and 20 on the boost. Leave your gearing.

ok thanks

i wanted to try the 5,0 to 5,1 gearing and a bit more boost.
Feld this still the best because of the acceleration. that was fast, very fast.
i took several meters coming on the long strait. the first 14 meters i made a gap and lost a little bit ad the end but the inner side of the track, the car was a lot faster.

i will try some more boost.

I tested with 20 boost and 15 on the motor.
Speed was on the straight the same as a LRP TC.
The acceleration was much better than a LRP TC.
I couldn't test it quit good because i hath no good tiers.
But even with those tiers i was faster.
I think with better tiers that i go even faster.

the 20 instead the 15 on the boost worked great. motor stead good on the motor temp.

Tested also a speedpassion motor with a tekin rs pro.
a club member drove that. he hath 23 boost and the power was good. 0,1 heavier timed.
good speed and acceleration.
He is verry happy with his Tekin RS Pro and me to

194 won't be out for a bit. We're still testing other setups.

hi, I have a rs pro and want to try 2.5, I know you reconmend 2 caps, what about the Hobbywing 4 Capacitor Board or the Roche 4 Super Capacitor board, they have 4, not sure what size though. How are you guys mounting a fan on it if it needs it....

also what settings on my hotwire for 4.5 to 2.5 mod motors?

Chris i ran one of those boards on my R1 with no problems. But that was 5 cell 3.5.

I managed to blow one of the standard caps using 5 cell (i believe i had a 4.5 bolted in at the time).

What's a good staring point for boost if there is no motor timing? I run a 17.5 and have it geared as high as it saftly can go.
