Default question

What does "push control" do?

Is it like adding throttle trim or does it limit current? I know it can't adjust the sway bars, well maybe it can, the RS is amazing.

Try running 25 on boost and 10 on motor and go up slowly from there.
Software version 1.94 or 1.89?

I think most 10.5 motors does have a factory setting of 12 degrees timing, should it turned back to 10 degrees?

Push control is like bumping up the trim on the throttle. It was originally only meant for brushed motors to make them feel like brushless or to lessen the drag on stock type motors but now Tekin has opened it up to brushless as well.

our nationals are about the start, and this year i will be using my new rs pro
we are racing 1/10 pro mod. 7.4 v lipo , rubber on asphalt and we have a very large track with very fast corners. i am planing to use my speed passion 4.0t motor.
so my question will be where to start,
my speedo is on software 186 i think.

1- should i upgrade the software?
2- should i change the timing on the motor for starting point?
3- what should be the starting point for timing on the hotwire software?
4- this will be out first trys in lipo, can you suggest me a fdr for to start with.

desperatly need help here

ps: i believe i need second cap and fan, i will put those but i don't know where to put the fan. in the net i couldn't find a fan kit for this esc.

Try the setting posted in the pictures I'm sending you. You can advance the timing up to around 95 or so but make sure to stay in DUAL Mode with a 4.0T. Runnng two caps and a fan as shown will help keep temps down.

For FDR's I'm sure we all have the same question, what are the track demensions and how long is the straight?

You can install the software now but nothing will "work" until the hotwire is plugged in.

That track is huge. Ok start out around a 8.0 fdr and go up or down from there. That track is a lot bigger than what we run on locally.

Check the motor temps after the first 2-3 minutes and make a judgment call from there.

I'm bumping up and giving 10.5 TC a try and need some guidance for a starting point.

Medium-sized outdoor asphalt, roughly 105' x 75'.

With RS 194/Redline 17.5/0 motor/max boost I run an FDR of about 4.2 on this track for reference.

I'll be running RS 194/Redline 10.5/7.4V lipo.

Should I still run 0 motor/max boost with a 10.5?

What's a good starting FDR?

I haven't had a chance to try RS with 194 ver. . Using 189 ver. on same size asphalt track running RS with a Duo 10.5 geared around 4.7 I found 12 degrees on the motor and 15 boost seemed to work best. I was also using a 40c TP lipo.

Coincidentally, I am using TP 40C 5000 mAh lipos as well.

I am surprised at that FDR -- I figured it would be more like something in the high 5s.
