yes, 200 is the next best option.

Default turbo values

with alot of recommendations by team tekin to not lower turbo less than 1.0 or whatever figure it is, the latest setups have turbos 0.5 or even down to 0.0

+1 if they can't even tell you what version of software you are allowed to use.... in effect that just says you can't race, which in todays age is just lame where some clubs are finding it difficult to keep racing alive or finding new blood...

(If they have though, then ignore my post).

what type of track? open, flowing, tight
what surface? carpet, asphalt, etc
what kind of tires? rubber, foam
what version on your RS? v200, v203

I know Randy Pike posted a 'suggested' starting point for 13.5 TC a ton of pages back, you can do a search for his post

remember, there isn't going to be a 'perfect, outta-the-box' settings anyone can give - its all gonna be ballpark starting points

Huge kudos to Tekin Being still fairly new to RC in general (approx 1 year) I've been slowly working my way through the various brand names of speedies and have to say that the Tekin RS has been an eye opener!

My 10.5t TC has been transformed from a moderately fast car to a guided missile, and the brakes are just awesome, so great that I had to raise my ride height to stop the front of the car digging into the asphalt As others have said, back your EPA off, I'm running around 50 percent!

If you're curious, setup is -
HB Cyclone on Asphalt, 45ish meter straight
SP V3 10.5t with minimal timing on the endbell
FDR around 7.04
Boost - Max
Start - 54**
End - 20000
Turbo - 16
Delay - 0.0
Ramp - 3.0

Comes off in the 60's and no complaints really. I found if you went too low in your gearing, say into the 8's, it got much hotter and actually lost infield punch.

Second RS on it's way to me to go into the RT5, yes it's that good

the suggestion is not run less then .2sec. 1.0sec is a long time. yes some of the setups are 0sec delay. remember those are suggestions and the setup you are seeing are "fully" optimized. remember these guys are racing at the top of the game. i am not sure that these setups would be an everyday club race setup.

The setups with 0 on the delay are risky and should be tested before you race with it.
I use it on an indoor track and I love the 0 turbo delay. The motor get's hotter bud the Acceleration is just impressive by full throttle. As you don't go on full throttle, you can drive easily true the infield. You can use the acceleration power when you need it.

As you use the 0 delay, use than also a higher start RPM.
This way you prevent of having to much timing at once to the motor.

hi David, assuming you are using a hotwire with the vegas203 firmware. if not, then go get a hotwire.

check out tekin's website for setups. Randy Pike's and Barry Baker's setup from the ko race is listed. thats a good starting point for an open track, try 7.5 fdr if the track is tighter to just get started.

you will want to fiddle with the start/end rpm with no turbo, then add turbo, its like a 2nd gear kicking in.

note the pro's tend to set the turbo delay to near zero, because they are using their trigger position to control when they get the turbo. for mere mortals and rabid racers (like me) a larger delay based on the track layout works better.

Default full motor timing

instead of the traditional setting of 0 motor timing and 50 timing boost, has anyone played around with max motor timing and minimal timing boost eg. 10-15?

can anyone see a downside to this setting?

sorry if it sounds like a stupid question,its currently 3 hours past my normal bedtime and brain doesnt function well looking for the extra few tenth's this time of hour haha

imho with full motor timing, you loose all the torque that a brushless motor has. specifically the high wind spec have a lot of torque.
