Wow setting 6 on timing. I run 0 or 1 in my wheeler lol, usually 0

Hows it working out? And I dont really understand, sending in my esc to KO to get the update gets get the new timing stuff, or is it just a new version of the programmer software on my computer? I havent messed with my esc for like 3 months

you have to send in the speedo to get the firmware upgraded in the speedo so you can use the new software. if you dont send it in you will not be able to use the new stock program with 6 timing. also this upgrade fixes all cogging issues.

ok cool.. ill be using the Duo at Reedy (hopefully for both classes 13.5 and RCGT).

did some testing yesterday finally. set the speedo at timing at 6, drag brake at 75 and brake freq at 0.794khz.

temps came off at 140 (at 5mins)...around 150-160 after 7-8mins of practice time with a 13.5 novak motor.

the guy who won 13.5 was using an spx at profile 8. my fast lap was off by 0.1 from his fast lap. so the BMC definitely KEEPS up with the spx AND i didnt blow up any motors.

if we can get guys to post up the setups they are using it would be great...

i understand the timing, the auto brake,

are you guys changing the steps???? (the stuff in the middle) or just moving thru the profiles??

for my purposes i will start with number 2 with the timing cranked...

how many teeth do you guys think you should go down, when you change timing from 2 to 5 ot 6??

Chris you can gear up the motor should be around the 170 to 180 mark after 5 min....Clint I will be looking for you on the track, but if your coming for me that means you are behind me

What cogging issues are there?, is it only for spec motors?. I am using low turn modified and the speedo is smooth as butter with no cogging, it is a v1 speedo, is it worth sending it in and being without it, if i have no issues?

Thanks Ya`All
