I think Randy's/your advice will help anyone. You're fooling your ESC with the radio into believing its at 100% even if you slack for just a tick of a second. It is very good advice.

I have 200 as well and if I ever have problems I will simply switch to 200 that Randy has sent to me. Thankyou by the way.

I have to say though this Tekin speedo is pretty wicked!!!!!!!!! Amazing what these speedos can do nowadays for not that much money.

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.
I assume this trick will work with an FX and DX3R doing the same thing i.e. losing blinking full thottle.

well you said if 200 doesn't work for you, your going to try 200. Do you have two different versions of 200?

I just got Ver 200 last thursday and got a chance to run it Sunday . My Tekin 17.5 Motor was faster then ever and running about 120 to 130deg
and the turbo seemed to have more kick over 199 same settings and Epa's programed/set as needed to make 199 work properly.

I tested 199 and was running 130 to 150deg
2xx will only get better

I have the same feeling.
I gear even 1 pinion heavier because of that.
Also the Turbo feels better.
Also the throttle reaction feels better. brakes are also better now with the Speedpassion.
doesn't brake as the Tekin or LRP motor but better than before.
Didn't expect that the V200 became better than the V199.
I thought that the V200 was the same without the EPA settings but Tekin improved the throttle, Turbo and power.
Great job.

I see on the setup thread for the tekins spedos, i see that some guy's look like they are running 40-50 deg totall timing correct me if im wrong, but i thought that 30-35 was really the max timing to run between the motor and speedo, anything else higher was bad for the motor
