I wish you gents would stop asking where is 199! 199 was never released. It was test code for the team and test drivers. It was an Alpha release not intended for general release unless accepted, which it was not.

This is why it went 189 to 194 to 198 to 200. All the code bases in between failed private testing.

Miss quote: My fault. It was mikky32 asking kenny had ever tried 199.

I'm not sure what failed on 199 version or what the team guys didn't like but I think it works great. Not sure how much different 200 is but until I see a problem I have no reason to change.

199 does work IF you know about the possible radio calibration issue with it.

200 does have a better turbo to it though...can't say why.

Sorry to make it sound like I'm the software police. I have read the whole thread, 199 wasn't a general release. It was leaked around. There were problems that were fixed in 200 which became a general release. If you have 199 and like 199 that's cool, but if its not working for you don't complain. I'm sure we'll see v2.XX sooner or later too.

what is the point of calibrating your radio if when done, full throttle on the transmitter doesn't equal full throttle on the esc, you have to bump up the epa %, then the esc is not reading full throttle, pulling the trigger, as 100% full

I have no reset it back to 100. Something is pretty quirky with version 200's turbo.

Maybe because my boost is maxed out and the turbo is not kicking in?
That's not going to get you what you want at all. Just because you've calibrated it low like that it will not set the timer any different. You would still need to hold full throttle for .5 seconds to being the turbo sequence(or whatever your delay timer is set).

If you think you're losing turbo do this:

Set your epa's to whatever max is, reduce that setting by 10 points, calibrate the speedo, then max out your throttle/high side. Run the car.

If you feel that you lost turbo, pull off the car and view the led's on the speedo, at full throttle the led's should flash! IF they do not you're losing full throttle calibration(this is what was wrong with 199, hence no public release). Use the above trick and you should be good to go.

Turbo does not have any "hold back" do to heat,etc.

Some radios exhibit a bit of a signal "wander." So far the Ko radio seems to be the most sensitive after talking to people that have experienced this condition.

in the high speed sections, as there is much of it in the current layout straight away is about 60 meters long and there is a very high speed "suzuka" chicane very i need all the punch one can get.

Ran the v200 this weekend and it was fantastic! The only issue or maybe non issue is that my Dou 17.5 motor is coming off at 190 degrees. I don't really want to change any settings because I think it was perfect through the infield and straightaways. Also it felt just as strong from the beginning to the end.

Right now I have an integy heatsink/fan combo. Would it help me if I ran two fans? Or has anyone plugged in the fan directly to the battery instead of the reciever so it will spin faster/more cooling?

What are you talking about? The guy you quoted never claimed to have 199, want 199, or was even looking for 199. Like I said... you need to go back and reread whatever conversation you thought you were quoting.

Than I'm not crazy
The V200 looks like to run better than the V199.
It runs smoother. Also looks like my motor stays a bit cooler but that can also be the outdoor temp.

I have this Sunday the National championship race on my home track and because we must use a Speedpassion motor, I'm now training with it.
I used the same setup as with the V199 but now the motor stays cooler and the Turbo doesn't kick in suddenly. It comes in much smoother.
On old tires 15,035 sec. Never bin so fast on old tires on my home track.
With new I drive 14,518sec. Old tires normally 15,5 and higher.

mikky is making it a little confusing. kenny stated he had v200.
