Im running a Sp 13.5 at a 62 mm rollout with a 90' straight. 20 on timing and max turbo with .5 delay.

Can we all agree to not use the word boost on this thread for the sake of clarity? On the software the nomenclature is timing boost and turbo boost and it gets confusing for many I am sure. Just a thought . . .

The issue he had was that his screen resolution was at the minimum. This will prevent him from "seeing" the hotwire interface open up to the right when he clicks on "show versions."

Once he made his resolution 1024/760 he was ace! I've caught onto this after thinking about my friends mini netbook that has a similiar issue...He was installing, uninstalling and doing everything you guys mentioned correctly. He was frustrated also, trust me. You guys are all great for trying to help and nobody should be apoligizing for helping out.

I've got over a decade of experience diagnosing real cars for a living, the weirdest of the weird, and the cars that "just can't be fixed." I've also been playing with toy cars since I was 12 and am 34 now, so yeah I've been around and seen a few things.

I'm no computer programmer or tech guy, I'm just like you guys. I just seem to be able to listen and ask the right questions.



A good basic setup for 200 software on most short tracks is 0 motor timing, 25-30 timing boost. Gear for the layout and laptimes. Watch motor temps closely until you find the right gear.

I will be in Vegas for the IIC. I arrive wednesday late morning...come see Tekin at the Meet and Greet!

I just need to get somewhere in the ball park really i have no idea where to start i run a T2 007 rubber spec, on a 118 spur, last season i was running a stockstar 27t i was on a 20 pinion with an fdr of 10.03 if that helps any, yes we have very tight and twisty tracks we have 4 we rotate every week. in the 7 years of racing this is the most confused i think ive ever been on setting something up im not looking for in depth set ups i just dont want to fry it up in the first night
many thanks guys sorry for the noobish question
I'm sure that it won't come with V200 on it, as Tekin hasn't officially released it. I just bought two RS's from Amain and they had 180 on them.

Roughly, double your gearing. ie, if you were 10:1 before, start around 5:1 FDR. You will need very small spur gears and very large pinion gears for BL. Get some 90-100 spurs and 45-55 pinions. Go to gearchart.com and figure out what spurs and pinions will cover 4.5:1 to 6.5:1 range.

In the old days, you did all your tuning on your motor with brushes, cuts, springs, constant truing, dyno-ing, etc. Now all your tuning is done in the ESC, and monitoring the motor temp. Get a decent temp gun, if you don't have one. Motor never has to come out of the car unless you want to clean bearings or try a different motor. And the motor runs the same every time, as there are no crappy brushes and springs and comm to change performance every time you pull the trigger.

Have fun, and try not to mess your pants when you see how fast a 13.5 is compared to an old stock motor.

little feedback from today practice using 200 profile

track was technical very tight in most parts of the track
Fla temp was 95 degrees and track temp was 136
speedpassion 13.5 non adjustable timing motor
reedy 5000 35c lipo
FDR was 4.53
turbo was max advance timing was set 21


in the begining car had smooth rip but faded away big time so I temp it and it was around 155-161 degrees and brakes where VERY WEAK from beginning to end. On a short track the turbo need to kick in a lot faster, well that all have a safe weekend fellas

I picked up a half second today. I'm getting closer to figuring this thing out! It felt good to run laps faster on a non race low traction day than I could on a race day.

I'm finding the turbo is kicking in about halfway down the back straight for me. I added endbell timing from 5 to 10 today and left timing boost at 10 and max turbo. What a difference with the 17.5. I'm switching my FDR from 4.64 to 4.74 and adding another 10 Timing boost and leaving the endbell alone next time out. Temps were lower than 140 and I kept right on practicing.

I have also not a strong brake with a Speedpassion motor.

Set your Boost lower. You get more power and you will see that the Turbo kicks in faster. Try a Boost of 13.

You can also gear lighter. The Turbo will also kick in faster.

OK Guys, 10.5, 1s in a GT10 at the following track;



Main straight is about 160 feet.

Any suggestions for rollout and Timing and turbo settings?

Thanks
Skiddins

P.S. I will be at a large meeting there later and if they get it all sorted there should even be live results so you can see how the GT10's are getting on (It's the Ansmann GP);

is it a real problem if the redline 10.5t gets 199,4 degree Fahrenheit? I should have a lower rollout but didn't test the setup for tempature before i had a clubrace

My fastest speed on the straight was 55 miles per houre (88km/h) measured with a speedtrap.


I went down 1 pinion size before the race so i drove with a lower rollout then anyone else on the track. And still the motor was hot. I used 52mm and the rest was 54-57mm. I did notice that my motor didn't have grunt anymore at the end. Would the magnets get weaker with that tempature or am i still ok with the motor as long as i am not doing that for a longer periode of time? Just curious if i would have to buy a new motor cause of weakend magnets.

Shit how big was the straights??
just finished a weekends racing at the Gold Coast in Australia running a tekin 10.5 straights are about 100/120 feet long and running a 39.7 (79/27)roll out to start with then came back to 36.35 (83/27) which was still a tad high, ended up 33.66 on (83/25) temps all good and shit load of grunt all over
A mate who runs mod with an LRP speedy could not believe he how it accelerated when the turbo kicked in.
Heaps quicker than the SPX just a same that i need more practice,can only work on it.
What spur/pinion combo are the stock guys running over there for an 09 xray as one of the mate is have some trouble getting the right combo.
thanks Steven.

Heading out to Speedworld to do some more big track testing with 200. I know how my car ran with 199 there so we'll see how 200 goes there with the same settings. I have a few ideas to try today as well. Will keep ya'll posted on the results.

Questions??

Hey guys, who do I contact to get v199? I had someone at the Regional 3 race setup a profile on my RS and I need the software to make some adjustments.

looking for gearing recommendations for an Xray 008 on carpet rubber tires. 96x40 track size. Any v200 setups would also be nice. Thanks.

Tony, This is where I would start. rubber tires at. 13.5-5.6 FDR and 17.5 4.5 FDR. Both would be with 0 factory setting on motor timming, 28 Timming Boost and 10 on turbo boost. Then ajust gearing and turbo as needed. We all have our thoughts of whats best but thats what I have found best lap times for my smaller tracks. When I run full turbo I feel its a waste with tracks under 120++ long shoot as over 10 turbo you will start fighting turbo boost while in braking poing. Thus having weak feeling brakes. I can set turbo to 10 and hear it peak just when I get to my braking point and still have enough brakes to rip my gear out..LOL
