and the throttle profiles do what.
as i am using 3 now.
Turbo is controlled by the delay setting, which is activated after full throttle is applied. Turbo is being used exclusively under full throttle conditions.

The Starting/Ending RPM range controls the rate that timing boost is applied between the RPM range you specify. This setting doesn't control turbo boost timing rates.

Check this link for better explanations of the turbo and timing boost functions, along with a general overview of how the RS and RS pro work:

Hi guys.

Today it happent, it really happent, the postman came with my tekin rs pro an a 17.5 combo kit, it looks good, and i cant wait to get on the track with it.

But i need your help, please PM me your favorite settings, i will be using the redline or a speed passion v3 motor, ive got the hot-wire cable.

Most of the time the racing will be on a small technical track, maximum 25 meters strait and alot 180 deg corners.


thanks

Jeppesen - I hate it when guys do this to me, but if you go back to about page 626 in this forum Randy of Tekin posted settings which are actually a pretty good starting point. I'm racing rubber tire on a medium size AC track, so my settings may not be good for you, but here they are if you want to consider. Whatever you do, when you change settings run for 2 minutes and check temps. If not bad run for 4 min and check...don't want you to smoke your motor. I'm running a Speedpassion 17.5 also.

Timing Boost Max
Turbo 10
Neutral width 10
Brake 100
Voltage cutoff 2
RPM range about 4500 - 12,000
Turbo delay 0.4
Sensored
Throttle profile 3 (or 4)
I didn't change the motor timing - so whatever it came with out of the box.

After a 5 min run my motor was coming off at about 120 deg F, geared at a FDR of about 5.5.

Thats all I can remember right now...I know its a lof of infor to pour back through but there's a lot of good info sprinkled back through this thread.

Good luck - Mark

Just read your post again. With a track like that I would bet you will get limited use from the turbo...you may want to gear more for infield at about 5.6, increase the ramp to 3, change throttle profile to 4, and tighten up the rpm range just a tad to 4000 - 10,000.

Try it and see what you think, and remember to temp your motor just to make sure its not getting too hot...

Hey Guys I know i have read of this problem before but I can't find the answer. I registered and downloaded vegas_3_32_200 zip file. Extracted and saved, deleted old hot wire, ran setup batch file. A am running XP so I assume there is no hidden file? My problem is 200 is the highest version I see in options side bar. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks
Sorry for the repeat Question

You're downloading the wrong file. When you get to the Hotwire page to register make sure to hit F5 and refresh the page. Then once you register you will get the link to the download.

If you change your motor from a 21.5 to 17.5 do you have to change your esc parameters?

its not needed but you may have to make small changes to the end/start rpm and timing

OK, I should have added would it make a difference if your racing from a smaller to larger track or vice versa.

This is what I find:

For a smaller track, use a larger FDR (smaller pinion), larger boost, smaller rpm window and no turbo.

For a larger track, use a smaller FDR (larger pinion), smaller boost, larger rpm window and turbo.

This is assume to use the same motor. It is best to temp your motor and make small adjustments.

Assuming it's the same as my 21.5, there's 3 screws on the end with the sensor wire. I believe they're 2mm hex. Loosen those up a bit, and the whole black part rotates. There's a notch that should be around 12 to start with. That's the notch that indicates the motor timing.

There's a little notch in the platic endbell against the timing scale. That's your pointer.
