Yes. I tried all the possible gear ratio while watching the temp and speed in each changes. The best ratio so far for my car with this system is 4.2 . Good infield and straightaway speed. Calvin can vouch for me.

Timing Boost kicks in at full throttle, Turbo Boost rolls in after short, user selected delay (milliseconds) at full throttle.

So imagine these settings, 10-deg Boost, 20-deg Turbo, and your working through the infield, mostly with short bursts of full throttle. The ESC would be running on 10-deg Boost during these quick full throttle dips, and then once you hit the back straight and hit full throttle, you instantly get the 10-deg Timing Boost, and after a short delay (8ms for example) the extra 20-deg hit from the Turbo Boost kicks in, yielding you 30-deg total timing down the straight.

The above settings should yield a lower motor temperature and more battery power towards the end of the race, since 30-deg Timing is only in effect down the back straight, and 10-deg normally.

Bukil, I saw you "downgraded" to 189 for your final setup. What change does that make? The fastest guy at our track (one of the fastest regardless of where he races) is still running 189.

So normal timing boost only works on full throttle?

According to an email I received from Tekin .....

"Turbo and boost are the same thing but applied different.
Boost is added pretty early based on rpm. Turbo is engaged
at full throttle after a timer delay that you set"

Hope this helps

Pete!
Where were you? Mark's car was fast at the low/high speed and the temp was around mid 160F.
I need a V200 "Turbo = KERS" for my F104.

I'm not very "techy"when it comes to this stuff as this is my very first Tekin product.

But somehow I noticed... with v189... Gearing is much more forgiving as well as the temp. Meaning, you will hit the "sweet spot" with only a few tries compared to the higher firmwares. I could be wrong but that's what I observed. Additionally, I heard from our veteran guys here that v189 is much more stable than v198. They didn't explain the details. Consequently since I was struggling with v198, I went ahead and gave v189 a try. It only took me a few runs to hit its "sweet spot".

If you look at the change logs of firmware 189, 194 and 198, there isn't really much an update for RS and RS pro unless you are using 1s lipo (I know there is much more to it than that). That being said, it wasn't much of a "downgrade" for me.

I hope someone could chime in and give you more concise and detailed answer.

Hope this helps

Well, I broke the track record this weekend it was blistering fast won by a lap and a half to second place. Next race bumped a corner motor side and my motor slide back and caused huge friction with the spur, a lap later dead stop smoke and flames from the motor, it got so hot liquid solder dripped out lol (pics to come) didnt finish but came third that race (ESC was perfectly fine). I didn't have a spare Trinity DUO so I borrowed a Trinity Pulse 17.5. Damn slow in comparison (lost 30 second over the whole race) ended up with TQ and a second BY ONE POINT

Note to self: Don't let Dad do it, if you want things done right do it your self


I don't normally let dad even breath near my car but I have a broken rib and can't apply much force that way
