If you go to the main page there is a graphic for Vegas 2.0. Click on it and it will take you there.

I'm running a Redline 10.5 on 1S LiPo in 12th. Currently set on zero motor timing, a high-ish ratio, 20 boost and 10 turbo on 0.7 sec. What settings do I need to sort out with this version, and how should I use the rpm range?

All help welcome! Thanks in advance.

PS - can we sort out a name for it?!!! Since it is Vegas2 on the link, and 4.0 on the file, could we use Vegas 2 as a suitable moniker? Vegas2, that sounds good...
Here's what it looks like so far from what I can see playing around with the settings.

The low RPM is where the boost timing starts to kick in. It ramps up to the max boost setting at the max rpm setting. It looks like there is a ton more boost timing available so it's pretty easy to over time things. You'll have to gear down a ton with the higher settings. Check your temps often when you're trying new settings.

Turbo looks like it works exactly the same as before except they've added the turbo ramp setting. Turbo ramp controls how fast the turbo hits once you hit full throttle. 1 ramps the turbo in slower and 3 is faster.

In the end, it's the same story. Start low on the timing and work your way up. We'll know more as people start to fingure out the best starting settings for each class.

Things like enter your track lenght and straight length and it gives you a starting point for rpm etc.
That sounds like a good idea,I have just loaded the new v203 and have been looking at it on my laptop. I have no idea at all what settings I should use or how to understand it. Im really confused I never got the chance to run v200 as I have just bought my rs pro but this new v203 has just blown my mind !!

A big Kudos to KennyL for sharing and a thanks a heap to Team Tekin for the New Year present.

I was all set for testing until the rain god thought otherwise for today. I have used the settings slightly milder to what KennyL posted today.

Regards,

Calvin.

If you don't get the "settings saved" pop-up it's not saved. I've seen it take a couple of try's to get the buttons to work.

I had to restart Hotwire after I loaded it for the Advanced button to work. But everything works now.

Agreed.

I assume ramp setting 3 is better for smaller/tighter tracks?

The one thing I'd like Tekin to chime in on is a suggested End RPM range for motors/track sizes.

This is what I hate about Tekin.. They have great hardware andf they just release the software to make it world class. Now everybodies stumbling around trying to figure it out.

WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR TEAM DRIVERS.

Isn't the point of giving it to them early is to let them test it and work out some profiles for the guys who pay full price for the product.

All we need are some starting points.

17.5 touring
13,5 touring
WGT
17.5 12
13.5 12
and some oval settings.

Come on guys, put the final piece in place and make this thing really rock. We shouldn't have to cruise through 20 pages on this forum and try to put something together.

That's what I would assume but I haven't had time to play with it on the track yet.

I'm going to start out by tuning in the boost and RPM range before I mess with the turbo at all. I only want the turbo to kick in on the straight anyway. Plus with the bigger timing setting for boost I might not need turbo at all.

Kenny,

It may help many of us gauge things off of our old setup from v200 if we had a comparison with how the boost/RPM relationship functioned in the old software? Can you give us general idea as to what RPM that came ON and at what RPM or TIME DELAY it used as the end point?

What type of layout scenarios would require the Boost StartUp to be below 2400? Any? What result would come from 1000RPM? Generate to much heat?

Thanks for your help!

Aaron
