Interesting. Could anyone else confirm this theory as well?

The word you are looking for is gauss. And yes new rotors do usually have more even gauss. But not necessarily stronger gauss. If you take several rotors and test them they will all be pretty close. But if you take matters into your own hands then you know for sure that they are even and strong.

Randy is there some news about the new software for the pc?
what options will be on it?
will we see the RPM's from the motor after the race?

Just for my understanding...does that mean a larger electric field just not a stronger electric field?

From my understanding gauss is the strength of the magnetic field (I assume this means larger too as magnetic flux increases in density the farther the lines of force move from the object if I remember right. ). So a newer rotor will more than likely be a stronger magnet. From talking to the magnet guy he says what he sees most of the time is that the magnetic field is not always equal from top to bottom. So using their gauss machine(big electro magnet) they can make the field stronger and more even from top to bottom. There is a limit to how strong you can make the field and this is based on the ROAR rules. They have limits on rotor size and gauss strength. I am not sure about other organizations.

Randy, I couldn't find it on your website. How do I order it ?

Also I need a number for a replacement case for the RS.

Thanks.

Start with Yang Lai 17.5 setup
Maybe with the 4dot timing on your X12
And gear for your track.

What I have found lately is that a good baseline on the RS setting, will work
well at a lot of track layouts, without a gear change.
The sweet spot is fairly broad.

This link is available thru the Hotwire as well.

Did you update the speedo?
and did you recalibrate the speedo after it again?

Than set it in sensord mode and click on the advanced button.
Change the End RPM first and push the button under it. than choose the start RPM.
Choose. As you click on calculate rpm's push on ok. this window opens when you calculate the rpms.

Set the motor timing lower.
With the standard motor timing the motor is fast but it get's hotter fast and you can ad more Boost and Turbo. You will run cooler and go fast.

There is currently no part # for the case set. If you can't find what you're looking for you can order it from me. Just call me tomorrow at this # 208 634 5559.

Exclamation "New software"

I guess somebody has asked this already but if not, then does anybody know if Tekin is going to come out with a software that is compatible with Apple!
Inquiring minds want to know!

you guys are all wrong about the ideal torque curve. this is what it should look like.

on a serious note. could current limiting in dual mode cause the speed control to heat up? im running a redline 2.5 in my RC12R5 and running it on a big 200ft outdoor asphalt nitro track and after installing a 2nd cap the speed control dropped from 200F to 170F but the motor is still well under 130F.

im running some 1.5 year old trinity matched ep4600 nimh's. i hear that if the batteries are weak, they can cause the speed control to heat up, is that true?

when i get lipos, what are the things i should do to drop ESC temp a little and get my motor warmer. currently my gearing is 96/20 and total timing is under 20. current limit is at 84.

Ok, I just got my new RS speedo, and I'm must be completely retarded, so please forgive my question if is seems so dumb that you are not willing to answer it. But can someone post a picture of the solder job, I see Jeff's on the first page but I can not see how you guys are soldering say Deans Noodle 12 gauge to the posts... It looks like a connector is missing, as in a connector that goes on the wire, and then connector goes on the post. It is going to look really stupid if I solder to the side of the post and heat shrink over it.... Very off set.... or do you dermal off one side of the post... I'm not picking on the speedo, just trying to understand if I'm missing something, because on the instructions, it shows a connector.... Or is 12 gauge wire way to big...

and you are using the cap included, or something bigger for 17.5?

Thanks in advance....
