Default RPM Ranges

Hi everyone. Just got the software installed and reflashed.

I have been looking at Randy's 13.5 TC base setting and it seems he is running an rpm range of ~4000 to ~12000?

So why is it that some of you guys are discovering that having a narrow rpm range like 4000~6000 is better for lowering lap times?

Has this got something to do with the gearing we are running?

Anyway I am running a 11.5 fixed endbell. If anyone would care to give me some base setups for a med sized track that wld be good.

Thanks and happy new year to all.

hi...

i tried v203 today and was impressed with the difference...
i run an xray t2 009 TC with 2S... 10.5 redline and rs pro.

my v200 setup was:
12 boost
max turbo
0.7 delay
with temperature around 60^C

my v203 setup is
40 boost (4000-12000rpm ramp)
max turbo
0.5 delay
with temperature around 55^C

overall the car is faster...pulls harder and tops out higher...
the track is biggish.. 55Metres straight...

fdr is 5.29 on rubber asphalt.

would you change anything?

Has anyone got a good setups for the RS and a 21.5T in a Tamiya F104pro.

I've got my software ready to go, but looking for a guide as to what timing and fdr/rollout you might run the esc with for a pan car.

any information is appreciated.

Was wondering if anyone could help

I have windows xp and have been trying to down load the emal
that Randy has sent me. With version 2.0

I previously had v200

But when I run the zip file it gives me ver.1.0

I have tried uninstalling the older version
and have gone to the tekin site to download all
the other software they recommend you have but I still
don't see any new features

Any ideas

I think, some people are mixing the end/start rpm and boost as entwined functions, I don't think they are.

the start/end rpm, dictates when and how long an RPM range the added timing comes in. Boost comes in at a set throttle point and defined delay. So even if your end rpm is set high, once you hit full throttle, the timer counts the delay, then adds your boost.

I am thinking of using the end/start rpm as a way of altering the power curve of the motor, making it more linear with a wider rpm spread, and punchy by narrowing the rpm spread.

Thats how i am looking at it as well.
It makes sense hence why a few guys have found that Randy's base setup and Yang's setup both work well. Just needs to be tried back to back to notice how it differs.

I could be wrong but it depends what "boost" you're talking about. Timing boost is entwined with the RPMs. When you hit your low RPM the ESC starts to add timing boost; as RPMs increase so does the timing and maxes out at your max RPM.

Turbo boost is the one you're referencing that comes in at full throttle.

Yang lai has been explaining this in detail. maybe he can help again.

I had problems finding the correct link, until I reloaded the window. Once that was done, it took me to a registration page, and then the download link was emailed to me.

I don't have a problem with that

I have been emailed the link and downloaded the zip file


But when I run it I just get what seems to be the older version

I'm running xp, is there a hidden file that I need to remove
like with vista?

when you see the contents of the zip file, there's like four or five things in it, like setup, hotwire, etc... click on the hotwire icon in the zip file. that's what i had to do and i'm running windows xp.

I used the link on the site and it worked fine.

I did have to register twice though, once for each computer.

I will agree. I believe the boost starts at the starting rpm and ends at the end rpm. So you can get a smooth increase in timing or an abrupt engagement.

When I was at a 3500 rpm start the car really kicked forward as I was really getting a boost. When I lowered the start rpm to 1500 the jump was not near noticeable.

This was in TC
