pc adapter? or handheld? pc adapter requires a laptop if you wanna take it to a race. once you get used to the handheld, it'll be very easy to use. pc adapter is just prettier to look at. or you can memorize settings like i do

Thanks for the help Chris. I'm looking for the PC interface. I think it's time to finally put my company laptop to use. Haha! If anyone is out there from my company, I was J/K. I have the handheld settings adapter and it works fine. Many times I get an error ("NC" code) when loading from the ESC down to the handheld and it's getting to be a pain when I just want to tweak something. Maybe next time I race at a race you're at, I'll see if you can look at it and maybe point out what I'm doing wrong.

well, I dont know about the arcing and all that, but all the higher freq. is doing is, when the speedo gives power to the motor, it does it in pulses, higher freq, means more on/offs per second (Hz, or times per second), which will make it more efficient. but you probably already knew that...
Yes I do know that. I need to get the motor to run cooler. So up or down with the Freq From 2300htz?

Gearing is dead on. I had my friend with the same car my motor and gearing run with a quantum and he had no problems so I changed my freq to match his. I will try going up in freq.

Quick question what is the advantage of using a 7.2 volt servo and does it drain the battery more. I know they r faster and stronger but anything else. Also do both the 2000 and 2000j have the external wire for the servo. thanks for the help

Jeff- The advantage of using a 7.2V servo is that it is faster and has more torque. Yes it does drain a little more on the batteries. A standard servo uses 6V versus the 7.2V servo. Both the VFS-2000 and J version come with a 7.2V lead. The Hara version "Twister" and Tamiya version "TRF-2000" does not come with the 7.2V lead.
