Any suggestions on what works well with a 21.5 using V200?

Thanks
You know you will probably catch a lot of flack for using turbo in VTA. I have 200 set up on mine but turned the turbo off. Myself and two other guys have already been accused of cheating before v200.

It had nothing to do with turbo. It was the 3.5 motor you had in your car! Those Tekin stickers sure are easy to move from motor to motor. Good thing they made them all the same color.

When you put the Turbo on, they will think that you drive a 13,5T

I have developed an "issue" and need some help. Firstly, it's NOT cogging but sounds like it. I have sensorless systems too so know all about cogging!

Just upgraded to v200 and trying to get my setup right. When I hit the gas full power from a stop, it stutters and won't get going. If i'm even rolling a tiny bit, she's a runner. Thinking it may be sensors going in the motor, but all 3 lights on the esc go up when I rotate the spur.

Here are the vitals:
TA05 rubber touring
RS (non pro) ESC
Novak 13.5SS, zero motor timing
Batteries GP3700 Matched, Corally 4200 matched (tried 3 different packs)

Hotwire V200
Brakes = 85%
Neutral = 10
Motor type = 1
Timing Boost = 12
Turbo = Max
Delay = 0.5 secs

Its's not going sensorless only mode, as when I run it off the ground the turbo starts to kick in, which wouldn't happen if sensorless.

Any ideas?

thanks mikkey but it doesn't mention when the 12.3mm comes out? It only mentioned the different rotors but only the 12.5 and 13mm (standard versions) are out

Turbo timing is extra timing. Tis will come in as you reach almost your top speed with the boost. So it ads some extra power for the straight.
You can set it on max.

First gear your car for the infield. set your boost around the 20 as your motor is timed around the 12.
Don't look at the top speed. This will come as you ad the Turbo.

If you're having a rough running issue there are a few things to check. Make sure you have your VC set to off since you're running round cells.

Make sure ALL of your wiring is good, a bad joint can cause this.

Make sure that all the sensors are checking in the speedo using the sensor checker feaure(in the manual).
