It is just frustrating.

I still have my tekin(s) and I am still waiting. I just sound a little grumpy about it.

So I run asphalt rubber tire sedan and here's the situation...
T1FK04, RS ESC, IP 30 5000, Trinity Duo 17.5, FDR 4.17-3.91

The track layout is was changed so the LH side is essentially a straight at 60 ft, followed by a 120 ft straight. Previous week with just 120 ft straight (and ambient temp of 70 and overcast) motor temps were 165 with 3.99 FDR. This week with same FDR (Sunny 80 deg) with new layout temp is 185! Gear down two teeth to 4.17 = same temp. Lap times stay same ~14.8 fast lap and no drop off. So maybe gear up? so I try 3.91 FDR b/c the car feels like it's topping out just after getting on the main straight... =14.5 fast lap and car is not feeling like it tops out as early, also no big drop off in lap times. Only problem is motor temp is now 225!

Timing is nothing on motor and 30 boost. I'm thinking I will leave the FDR where it's at and drop boost to try to reduce heat. Correct?

I'm using the 199 software... I think.

That was in a JRXS-R. Can't tell you the settings because it was a loner, but I'm told that it was running the v200 software!

Nobody has 200 yet, sorry.

I'm letting the rest of the "testers" get me their info prior to release. I've already stated that we have to make the software right.

It's easy to just throw something out there,but if it's wrong or there is a glitch it's exponentially harder go get it back!

It's like carpentry: Measure twice, cut once.

I'm taking emails now and adding them to a list. Anyone that has contacted me thus far is on the list and you will all get it at the same time, literally.

Sorry to hear that you went to KO, after seeing 200 I'm sure you'll be back.

Randy I have been thinking of this for the past month,with the new features coming with 200 it seems to be for high turned motors for touring,what can we offroad low turns and Rx8 users be looking for with 200.

I feel your frustration and everyone around you that claims to have the cure really doesn't. When you go pay for the other companies cure and you relapse then what? The free cure will be out shortly and althoughyou had to wait a little longer for it just know that you will be cured of this particular strain of the virus.

You can't go by gearing you need to gear for your power rane the Tekin will do the rest. If in fact you decide to switch to the other brand be prepared to pay for your updates and waiting for it in the mail vs getting a email and heading to the track.

I have 2 KO that I ran and since I switched I haven't looked back. They are now just collecting dust.

The RX8 will not be affected by this new software. In offroad the turbo function is almost hillarious in spec classes. 17.5 for example is almost like having a 2 speed tranny!

It simply needs to be witnessed to believe.

For 13,5 lipo and 10,5 lipo.
