We will settle this when I get a transponder or borrow Jims friday


Oh by the way alex, I cant wait to see how my new KO does tomorrow in my TC. . will chris be there i need him to fix this vintage body.


HEY!!!! I get to talk smack for now I got the track record in VTA!!!

you were only running me over because I cant hold the thing straight..... Thats what power does, makes things a little squirrelly... We were only even on the back stretch cause i geared down its ok we all know i suck when it counts.... thats on race day

You know when you bumped me on the back stretch when I had the tekin was the deciding factor for me to get the KO... I'll be damned if someone does that to me.... your VTA was the only reason I got it...

till the tires get warm its like driving a 500hp muscle car on a sheet of ice with drag slicks lol

um I'm not sure he should be... Even if he just drops by... The dude is bad ass on cutting/painting bodies.... He'll for sure be there friday... I'm thinking of doing a new body for friday... I cant decied... Mabe silver and blue actually painted stripes.... or find some flat black and do an old scooled sleeper in primerd black...

Oh and I turned my droop screw like a quarter of a turn back out(give a little more droop) and that solved my traction rolling problem.. Thanks for the rear sway bar/traction compound tips...

see yah later on today Sean

The brakes are also a lot better as well,
Im taking this friday off just for a track day, so ill get back with some details after the test.

Well, e-mailed Japan yesterday and got a reply from them, it costs 3000 yen to upgrade to v1.5. not too bad considering it's inclusive courier fees (return)!!

The KO is blistering fast and I have one myself, despite me joking with alex about my speed passion...with any of the top speedos out there a good driver with any of them stands a good chance of winning. I think there might be some other issues going on if your getting lef that many car lenghts though.
Hmmm, Goop from this thread set my ESC up for me with his settings. 4.2 fdr is setting the motor on fire...is the timing ring moved all the way counter clock wise on your motor, or fully clockwise? inbetween?

Also, are the people you are racing using the latest Tekin software? This makes a huge difference.

I just purchased the ICS usb adapter for my 1.5 .

what software do i need to be able to load the drew ellis profile and to maximize my ESC. I see several versions of the VFS software.

stock motor manager, v 1.2, 1.1, 2.2 , etc. Theres really alot of different profiles and i just need the top one.

I have been fooling with the KO, but the Tekin guys have their stuff dialed in and are 4-5 car lengths faster on the straight. they also don't seem to fade as bad as I do.

I started with max timing on the motor, and once I got the gear in a better range, it was quite a bit better. i was advised to drop 3-4 teeth to start, due to the ESC timing. The next day at another track, it was no where near enough. I reduced the timing by 1/2 on the motor and went up 2 teeth, which was better, but still not enough. Plus the motor faded a bit in the main.

thanks
TEAM NEXUS will have your answer...when I talked to Melvin at BTH 09 he was running 4.2 fdr w/ the KO..and Justin was running around 4.8 fdr with the SPX on Profile 8! and he was still faster...he has the hook-up on the KO and VTA...I ran Spx on 7 at 4.2fdr and wasnt even close except in the in-field
thats the only reason I qual 3rd....check with Nexus...I think they are running them in everything now...17.5,13.5's and all

Yep.. your right Darkside... Melvin at nexus has his 21.5 vta and KO Speedo running like a 13.5 TC .

He can get you right on KO setup or the gearing or whatever else might be wrong. Ive seen Ko's in 13.5, 21.5 etc, etc.

yeah when he came here for one of our points races...it took all I had just to stay on the same lap....and we had got to the point that we were running a "tik" slower than 17.5 tcr cars on asphalt (which is totally wrong for this class, VTA)...but the KO is a BA and given the SPX is too, but whatever he is doing to that thing its un-real....and FAST!
