How do you do that????! What is all this Parallel and virtual machine and what not?

Please help me with this thing. I am a Mac user too and would happily not buy a PC just to tune my Hotwire. Please help.

if you have Macbook (intel based), you can use Bootcamp, install Windows and you will have 2 OS, MacOS & Windows. but you cant run them at the same time.

or.. you can use Parallel Desktop.. you can search on google. It will installed in your MacOS.. so you should run your MacOS first, and then run the Parallel Desktop, install Windows, run it.
Using Parallel Desktop, it is "parallel", you can run MacOS & Windows on the same time.

Can you be a little bit more explicit, please? I am very ignorant of basically everything you say. My Mac is a Powerbook G4. Not sure what the implications are.

Your G4 will not be able to use parrallels or bootcamp as its not an intel based Mac.. You need a PC or a Mac which is one of the post G5 intel macs to run the Hotwire Software...

Just have to shout out and give Tekin a high five on the 203 software!

I ran it for the first time with my 17.5 200 setup (which may have not been very good) and it was much improved. Somehow 203 gave my car HUGE brakes!!! Had to dial them down a bit.

Someone in the pits told me to put my FDR around 6; i was running about 4.60 with v200. All I can say is HOLY @%^&! Night and day difference. Monster power now! A little RPM, boost, and turbo tuning - even more power.

I left the track with a car that was twice as fast as I went in with.

NICE!!

I was going over the setup on the Tekin site and notice the touring starting and ending rev's are higher than the 1/12 cars, I would like to know what would be a good starting point with 1 cell lipo 13.5 (1/12) on the start and end rev's counter.

Start RPM @ 2000 RPM and ending RPM @ 7000 usually works well.

Reason for this being the 1/12th needs less momentum to get going, hence with less weight they are laying the power down quicker than the touring cars when you are hitting the throttle, therefore require less low down power - or they could possibly wheel spin and/or kick out the back end...

I believe it's more to do with 1/2 the voltage.
1S vs: 2S

true, that too. Less voltage meens we need more speed. more speed = up the revs.

logic for me also though is much less weight and quicker than sedan on spool up, so no need to add to that with the start rev on the hotwire as brushless is also more efficient than what brushed motors were.
