20,000 sounds about right to me for 11.5 2s. I often run 10,000 for 10.5 1s so double that for 2s.

I just thought since he was having temp issues, the best ways to combat heat is gear lighter, reduce boost, and raise his turbo delay.

you're not really taking advantage of the tekin's potential/purpose if your going to max out the end rpm, but hey what would I know!

There is nothing wrong with 20000 rpm for ending rpm setting. If you had an Eagle Tree or Sentry Data Logger, you will be amazed at how many rpms that these motors spool up to in the short distances of our carpet tracks and where the rpms actually are when we are slowing down for technical sections of the track.

It depends.
You can now gear a bit heavier.
Also with his Boost on 30 he can easily raise it to 50.
With a higher start RPM he has also less head problems.

Gearing was way to heavy.

The RPM settings looked like if it was a 17,5T.
I had to read it also 2 times.

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I have looked at the Tekin web site and I do not see the information.

I run 13.5 and 17.5, NO mod, so which is the better unit the RS Pro or RS unit for running 13.5 and 17.5 (the lowest I would ever go to is 10.5)

I'm sure that this is a preference but if not running in the A mains or even B mains at a big event, I would like to know which is the right unit to purchase.

Thanks in advance.

First, I can't believe it, a Bvoltz sighting!!! Nice to know that you are still hanging with the r/c thing.

To answer your question, it doesn't matter whether you go with the RS or RS Pro. The main difference between the two is that the Pro gives you an extra FET board to run motors down to 2.5 whereas the RS (not Pro) can only run motors down to 5.5. All the programming is the same between the two, just limited vs unlimited motor choices is the main difference. So, if you are not going to run below 5.5, save yourself the dollars and get the RS.

If you are only running spec classes the RS is all you need.

Many thanks... I was not sure if the PRO had an advantage for spec racing besides the motor limit....

Does anyone know if Tekin has a solution (software) that will run on a crackberry or iphone so we do not have cart a PC to the track...

I know the crackberry has a USB port....

Just asking...

no, no software for crackberries or iphones. and the chip set in most phone for usb is for client and not a host or server.

Default x12 10,5 setup

Hi

Do anyone have a good setup for a rs pro with Nosram X12 10,5 turn.
The track I run is a medium track with carpet.
The car is a X-RAY T3 foam.
