So simply close the Hotwire window, and re open it. Select sensored only mode, and you will then have the "advanced" setting button.
Can I make a suggestion on the software from a usability factor? You need to show all the text in white so people can find what they are looking for without having to hover over a setting to get it to change to white. The graphics with the interface and color scheme with red and black are too dark and these two colors are too close together for defining borders around buttons.

We run 6min races @ a cool ambient of 45*-55*F. Motor temps around 135*-145*F. AT warmer ambient (TZII), the hottest I've seen around 170*F.
I have Two 17.5 cars w/same RS settings, both geared close to the same FDR, one w/Tekin redline w/0* endbell timing, other has DUO -2 w/endbell timing set from factory.

As you ask here you get the reaction Tekin RS. Ask it in the Mamba topic and you get Mamba and so on in the other topics.

GM 75/90 is not supported any more with new updates and has the same speed as an SPX.
Mamba Max pro is fast but looses on top speed and is huge.
Novak isn't available jet.
Tekin RS small light and the fastest. Great service. Get also the Hotwire with it so you can update your speedo and change the timing.

but then tekin will just bring out new softwere to go quicker again

it is just a softwere game , but i think i made the correct speedo for the job in the Tekin , my straight line speed is the fastest at our club so far

i will see in a couple of weeks how quick the GM is against my Tekin outside !!!

some of the other guys at my club are getting the GM's

yes^^ the gm75 is a new one with new design, smaller for 1/12, but it should be also good for tw 1/10 (stock-class).

I think I will take the Tekin^^

Could someone help me please!

I need a reliable setup for a short carpet track (10sec laps) with 13.5t. Could someone please link me one or post it here. I need lightning quick acceleration and decent straight speed, i seem to have dramatically one or the other cant find a mid point.

A friend did the hotwiring today, no matter what he did to the thing it was poor on the straights was reaching top speed about 1/4th of the way down the straight, out of corners was fine. RPM was 15000, start 1000. I was about 7.7 fdr to start with and ended up at 5.85. The boost ended up at max.
Yet last week the thing was too quick down the straight, i couldnt control it. It got the point where i couldnt find pinnions small enough. Now its the opposite, Im so confused. Could someone who knows about these things please help me out please. :P

Default Receiver Pack issues

I am running a 200 mah life receiver pack in my WGT. When I run a Speedpassion ESC I will use about 50 mah per 6 min heat. With my Tekin I use about 150 mah in a 6 minute race. Is this normal, is this also why the Novak booster doesn't seem to like this speedo after 203 was released.

Witch 13,5T?

1000 as start RPM is way to low.
You won't have acceleration with it.

Try this.
Boost 50
Turbo 10
Turbo delay 0
Turbo ramp 2 to start with and if the temps are ok and you think you can handle it set it to 3
Start RPM 5000+
End RPM 20000
Throttle 5
Gearing around the 6,8 to 7,6FDR Depends on the motor.
As you have a X12 don't use this setup.
Start with a light gearing and watch the temps.
As you give full throttle, you will have a monster but when you don't go full throttle you can go better true the infield.

Post your setup.
Did you update it to the V203?
Are you in sensord mode?
