WHOLLY BEJUSUS!!!!!!! I had no idea you could get SOO much more performance with these speed controls by setting them up with the computer!!! I had NO horsepower in my F-104 car with a 21.5 brushless setup until we loaded the new software--and max'd the timing and ran a bunch of boost!! MAN--the car went for "SNORE" to BALLISTIC"!! Very cool what these new fangled things can do for ya!!! Now I 'gotta get my own hotwire setup--and more Tekin speed controls. !! WHat an advantage to be able to "Tune" the speed control to your track and power conditions!! Very cool!!
Geeez-- an old dog can learn some new tricks!!!!
Lookout at the next F-1 race at West Coast!!! I'm loaded for bear with power to spare!!

Unfortunately someone either hid the speedie remains or put them in the bin overnight so i did not get to take a pic. But holy hell the tekin boys can pack a lot of smoke into that small box, the case was completely liquified, and the internals were completely destroyed, the whole thing turned to charcoal. It even melted the side of the receiver.

The strange thing is that the battery and motor were both fine

Well can't blame you being a pussy there, I myself was a pussy too. Dare not push my Tekin to the limit. Too many Motor Burning and esc Smoking really made everyone step back a bit.

Overall It was a great Race and Tekin rule the whole TITC Brushless.

i know what you mean bro. i was running a sp esc and it got fried at west coast so i ran into the shop and asked if they had a esc and they had the tekin and only 1 left lol. i had them solder it in and someone put a light tune on it for me and wow it was so much more powerful

Does anybody know if it's possible to put a Y in the ESC's receiver wire so that you don't have to unplug the ESC from the receiver every time you want to hook up your Hotwire?

drag 25

motor type bl/fw
throttle profile 5
voltage cutoff 2
push control off
timing boost 50
turbo max
turbo delay .1
turbo ramp 2.0
start rpm 2850
end rpm 12000

are these safe settings for a orion 17.5 vortex? im all new to this tekin and i really want to have good punch out of the corner and awsome topend on the straight.

i had some help setting this up but that was it. so i dont know what the limits of my motor are or the max rpm i can set the end rpm at without blowing it up. the car im driving is a cyclone s with 17t pullies and 96t spur and 40t pinion
I assume this is for touring, 2S.
changes I recommend are:
neutral width 94 -> change to 10
throttle profile 5 -> change to 3 or 4
turbo delay .1 -> change depends on the length of the straight away. but 0.1s is too short for most tracks. maybe try 0.4 to 0.6s
For very small track, turn off turbo.
start rpm 2850 -> raise to 3500ish
end rpm 12000 -> raise to 14000ish

(if you want to have turbo at the beginning ie delay = 0, then you will have to raise your start & end rpm values, maybe to s=5000ish, e=18000ish)

FDR should be around 6.5 to 7.0 to start.
Check motor temperature after a few laps.
If it is over 75C, then lower your boost / turbo or widen the rpm window.

thanks again for a great time

It was so nice to see so many people from many countries gathering to share the same passion in this hobby. I just found out that the other new track, RC City, will be indoor as well. Wow, 2 new indoor asphalt tracks coming up in the next few months. You should take more RC vacations here

Out of interest, what motors and ESC's were being destroyed? was this all happening in Mod or the Stock Classes?

2s lipo's being used?

as long as you have a way to keep the signal from the rx from getting to the speedo, then the extension would work. you can only use hotwire with no signal from a rx

Except for the neutral width, I disagree with the changes above.

My opinion on the changes to make:

lower neutral width to 10
lower the turbo to 10
I don't run drag brake but that's personal preference
I also don't run with voltage cutoff turned on
lower end RPM to 10,000

FDR should be 6.0 to 6.5. Make sure to put the timing on the motor at 0. Turbo delay of 0.1 is fine if you are geared right. I run 0.1 with a 3.0 ramp on my 17.5.

You cannot use a straight up Y-harness as whatever was coming through the hotwire would be hooked up in parallel with the receiver and servo. I use a 3" jumper so that I'm not always unplugging from my receiver.
