I've seen most of our team guys around 6.0 down to as low as 6.8 with a 120 ft straight away.

Derek Stephansen was Tq'd and won the Roar Region 12 champs last weekend on a track with those demensions. I'll have his setup sheet ready to post as soon as I get it from him.

He was running a Tekin RS PRO, Redline 13.5 and the 200 software. I believe he was somewhere around 10 on the motor, 25 timing boost and full turbo with .5 delay. I heard he was Fdr's around 6.8 to 6.9 in his Xray.

Hey guys, check out this video of a Tekin RS (Not Pro) in action amongst some of the nation's fastest drivers.

BTW, the yellow car is running the Tekin.

No it's just interesting to hear why people change from one product to another. I'm very happy with my RS's and plan on buying 2 more very soon.

I enjoy watching a good race/battle. What chassis were the 2nd and 3rd place cars battling toward the end?

Ok, maybe somebody here can help me out. I'm having a bit of problem with my RS. I downloaded and installed the 3.25 hotwire software from the tekin website. When I try running the program, I get a little red screen telling me it cannot connect with the database and I need the lastest version. I thought I did have it. What am I doing wrong here.

Bill.

Randy Pike, Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease do NOT mention new software. I'm still getting over the drama and 30 pages of questions on when v200 was coming out, I need time to recover before you start us all off again!

I Used with my 10,5 on 5 cell also a 6.0 to 6.87FDR.
I only do this with my Redline motor.
Boost 20
Turbo max
Turbo delay 0,5
Motor on 10

Can the 13,5 handle more timing?

a little off topic but how do you calculate rollout from a touring car? I want to compare the fdr and my rollout, but with a pancar you don't use fdr as such.

with pancar it is:
diameter tire times pi devide by spur x pinion

Touring car is?

Spur / Pinion = PDR
Sample PDR: 84T spur / 22 T pinion = 3.818

PDR x DTR = FDR (DTR = Drive train ratio, or ratio of pulleys)
For an Xray, the DTR is 1.7 (34/20)
Sample FDR: 3.818 x 1.7 = 6.49

Tire Diameter x 3.14 (value of PI) = Tire Circumference
Tire Circumference / FDR = Rollout
Sample tire circumference: 63 mm x 3.14 = 197.82mm
(or 7.788 inches)
Sample standard rollout: 197.82mm / 6.49 = 30.48mm
7.788 / 6.49 = 1.2

Rollout = (tire diameter * 3.1416) / ((spur / pinion) * internal gear ratio)
