nope. if you have 2 50uF caps, it take the same amount of time to charge 1 100uF cap. the voltage is just what the cap can handle, not what they supply

So, i tried out this new Vegas Software yesterday at a test session at my local club and it was very very very quick! I unofficially broke the lap record by 0.14secs. Here's a very quick summery of my settings that i used;
30 degrees timing
20 degrees turbo
20 degrees on the motor timing (tekin 10.5 (which comes off at 158F))
0.2 delay
FDR 7.78 (other cars FDR's are 5.7 - 6.2)
5000mah 40C
3 16v 1000uF capacitors (16v 3000uF in total)

Life gets better and better!

More timing will make the gearing a lot more sensative. If you set the timing high and don't change the gear it's going to have issues. One or two teeth at max timing can be a big deal. One or two teeth at minimum timing isn't that big of a deal unless you were screaming hot to begin with.

Point is that you have to keep track of what your set-up runs like on the track.

That being said, a lot of timing isn't always the answer.

Congrats on finding the sweet spot for you! Let's not crucify the guy for his settings. Everyone drives different so there will be a ton of variations. Personally my settings for a 13.5 are as follows.
Duo2 full timing
timing boost 14
turbo boost 17
fdr I am at a 8.3

Believe me when I say it looks and sounds like no other 13.5 on the track and is ballistic! Temps 2 flashes on the esc and 152 on the motor after a full 6 minute run.

I test the same here, yesterday with this software (Vegas v200), with similar results and feeling, i run in medium-long track, with 7.13 FDR, 2 mm in motor timming (7.5), TMB: 26, Turbo:15, Delay:0.3 , 5300 40C and a Low ESR 2200uf capacitor, more fast than SPX with combinations of others motors, but need good acelerattion, grip in the track, for more effective turbo, without sufficient tracttion the turbo not work in the same way.

Greetings, Luis C.

Does anyone realise that 20 degrees timing boost does not equal 20 degrees turbo boost? My max speed with 20 boost/ 0 turbo is slower than 0 boost / 20 turbo.

Thanks for those that have tried to help with suggestions, My PC has XP so the Vista video does not help. There is no Tekin video on you tube that details what I was dealing with.

The problem was my PC. The "Hide extension for known file types" was on. This was keeping me from changing the file extension to a zip file. And no this is not the same as sending the file to a compressed folder. Once I did this the programed worked. I uninstalled the previous version and installed the new. All is good now.

The 20 degrees of timing increase is the same, the difference is *when* the timing is applied. Timing boost is *always* added, whereas the turbo boost is only added *after* you have been at full throttle for the specified delay time. Thus, timing boost is active for 100% of your lap, while turbo boost is active for probably 10% of your lap (by time).

By "max speed" are you referring to speed down the straight, or lower lap times?

20 can +30 on esc=50 + 20Turbo=70 on straight
But Guy Looks happy so Good Luck to him,,,
I've Tried to use older software from Tekin website which is able to set timing boost to 45 but I wasn't aware of that cos with v200 ( which i normally use ) Max=30, I've just set it to max and result= Melted sensor etc.etc...
So be very carefull before pushing that Hard unless you know what you are doing 110%

The software that "had" an issue showing 45 is no longer on the site. We're working on a better solution right now that will be supa cool to gain access to the latest software....

When i had put too much timing on, the 10.5t motor just got hot and was screeming down the strait like a banshee from hell. It wasn't faster but it did make a huge amount of noise and people were saying "oh i thought electric motors didn't make that much noise" But this is on a track with a 360 feet of straight so on small tracks it could be ok as the motor isn't much on top speed.
