this controller has a much better footprint that the mamba and even the gtb correct? (so many versions of bl speedos from tekin)

The RS has a better footprint than the lrp sphere. This thing is tiny compared to the mamba and gtb.

Yes, by progressive timing, I mean varible timing throughout the RPM range during automated by the ESC.

Wouldn't make any sense to have to take your car off the track to crank up the timing for the long straights then stop your car and adjust the timing for the lower speed infield. The ESC needs to automaticly adjust the timing as the motor increases or decreases in RPM. Gas cars automaticly increase spark timing as the RPM increases, and guess what it works to make more efficient power. The only thing is that with varible timing, each track is different which is why I proposed 5 timing curves to affect how the timing progresses.

Used Cuffs' settings on a Novak 13.5 tonight and it was right on. Small carpet track, rubber tire. My fast laps weren't any different, but came much more consistently. The car felt right.

Right, and I'm telling you IT ALREADY DOES THAT and THAT'S WHY THE TIMING IS IN % AND NOT DEGREES SINCE IT CHANGES DEPENDING ON THE RPM.

Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesus how many times will I have to say that?

Hey you ever hear of progressive timing thing some other speedo's have?? I think that would be a good idea i wonder why they do this % thing wouldn't it be easier in degrees!?

I posted this on the Tekin RS 1/10 forum and Brian (Forum Admin) stated that Sensored Only mode disables the Motor Timing setting. Also, Jeff Cuffs posted his settings, and he also indicated 90% timing and Sensored Only mode.
I have to agree with CarbonJoe, this does not make sense.
