Randy.. could you provide any info regarding if Tekin is working on a software upgrade for the RS so we can level the racing field against the AE Black Diamond?

See my signature... got Turbo, now I need NOS

Perhaps you didn't have the gearing right. My friend's car was really fast. Remember, he was runing against people who run stock all the time, and his car was faster by a clear margin.

From personal experience I can tell you about the Hacker I have which is really slow, but has so much torque you need to gear it really heavily and it will pull like a mad dog.
I have the old Speedpassion 10,5 motor but the new one loves also to be geared heavy.
I get enough power out of it but I don't like the motor.
I love the Tekin much more. I started with the Speedpassion and later I got the LRP X11. Than I bought a 10,5 Tekin and after driving the Tekin, I was sold. This motor is great. Good top speed and good acceleration.
The GM is the only motor that I didn't get fast. I don't have it but some drivers tried several setups and I tried to help but noting worked.
If you have some tips for me how I get that motor also fast than I will be very happy and the drivers with the motor also.

How big is the track?
I use on a big track this setup.
Boost 15
Motor timing 8 to 10
Turbo delay 0,7
Throttle 5
Turbo Max
gearing 6,3FDR
Lipo cut off 2
brake 75%
Drag brake 0

I tried to gear heavier but the motor went faster when I gear't it lighter.
Motor temp was 165F
You can also set the motor timing lower. You get some more power in the infield.
Keep the motor around the 160 to 170F and it runs great.

Never got that the speedo stopped. I got 1 time that my car stopped but that was because the wires were not good. They were not connecting very well because the motor became to hot.

I have read your pm but wanted to reply later and I forgot. sorry for that.
I'm not always at home as I'm reading this forum. I watch it every were where I have internet

Randy has mentioned before that the updates etc are constantly being looked at/worked on, so the answer would be a yes even without the 'threat' of the Black Diamond.

None of those seemed to fix it. The motor (LRP 13.5) was running just under 150 degrees and the ESC felt warm for the first time that I've ever noticed. Any ideas?

My other RS is running great still. I'll probably swap the 2 since my other RS is in my 1/12th where I don't use turbo right now anyway.
This has been reported 100 times on this thead. Have you done the EPA trick yet? Calibrate with your throttle at 90%, then set back to 100% after its done.

It certainly was NOT fixed with 200. TONS of people were/are still having the indentical issue with 200 that 199 saw, and it has been gone over dozens of times in this thread since 200 was released. Once I did the 90-100 epa trick, no issues since.

Try my trick, and try raising your delay to 1.0, then try .9, then try .8, then try .7. Once you get down there, you will likely see less and less snap from the turbo as you will be over-timing your motor too early.

man I hope so.

Thw word from the Open Wheel Champs tonite is that the Mamba Max Pro is untouchable, and that is in 2s 13.5 class. The lap times aren't very far from the open mod times....

Please hurry on the software updates.

I'd hate to think I could have bought 2 of the mambas for what I paid for my tekin.....
