Try "The One" setup for 17.5 and start with reducing timing to 4 and drop 3-4 teeth on the pinion. This is for 17.5/TC/rubber.

Sorry I don't have it in a kpg file which all you have to change the txt on the end of a profile and then download to the sc.

Please note as mentioned make sure to check your temp at the four minute mark just to make sure.

Try it out tell me what you think ...............Best Regards!!!
Thanks Alex...I may have a chance to try the set-up in a few weeks.

I ran last night using the 09 nats on profile 2. All of this was done with timing at 6. I geared and a 4.4 and ran laps for 3 minutes. I checked temp and came off at 109, I was happy with the overall feel of the speed. It had lots of rip and the timing really kickied in mid straight with lots of puch when backing off of the throttle and getting back on hard through the sweeper. I then geared at a 4.2 and it really picked up the timing punch and really took off down the straight( sounded cool too) I ended up running for five minutes and counting my laps everytime I hit the corner on the sweeper. I ran 35 or laps in the five minutes. With lap times consistantly at 8.3-8.5. We on a 75x45 carptet track with a "ROVAL" layout. All and all pretty happy with the speedo I am pretty happy knowing i can now have the power that I need at a touch of a button

I have a couple questions. Just getting back into on road racing and I have a 17.5 motor. The FDR is kinda interesting as what I am seeing is 4.0 area is what you are shooting for. What size spur and pinion gears are you using?

West Coast RC raceway is one place I will be running. The reason I ask is it seems like with the Brushless motor and the FDR numbers I am seeing the pinion is very large. I have 64 pitch spurs so I just was wondering if I am off base or has things changed that much.

No, lol, the pinions are getting large, I guess your running a ?, so your going to have to run something like a 94 to 98 spur to be able to get the right size pinion for the right fdr for brushless.

Skinny, pm a guy named Melvin, it's a couple of pages back, I think he can pm you that profile.

Chances of getting a reply from Melvin are slim. I'm still waiting for my reply from him about 3 weeks ago

Well that suks, I wish I knew how to post it up here or I would although I can't lay claim to coming up with that profile, so its not really mine to give out.

If you guys are still waiting for that profile, pm me and I'll see if I can send it to you. It might have to be changed in format to be able to load it though.

Hi guys, i need some help from you BMC experts. i just started getting back into electric TC after a long pause and BL and Lipo is rather new to me. sSo hopefully some of you can help.

little bit about what i am running currently. the car is a TOP Photon, LRP X11 13.5 and obviously a BMC with Drew Ellis. i am running into temp problem with my motor.

here is a list of temp i am getting with my gearing. The internal ratio is 2.0.

84/37 - 180F (1st profile timing 5 instead of 6, ok fast, lack punch) (FDR 4.54)
96/40 - 200F (1st profile timing 5 instead of 6, very fast, very punchy) (FDR 4.8)

now here is my basic understanding of BL, the higher the timing the higher the temp and i should keep it around 150F. that's the reason for timing 5 instead of 6.

i tried other gearing and it's not helping to lower my temp. i've bump into this site here, the site doesn't have the Photon listed but i use the Yokomo MR4TC BD with the same internal ratio as the Photon, and it's suggesting a FDR of 6.25 (100/32).

i have a friend also with a Photon with the same LRP X11 13.5, the only difference is that he runs a LRP speedo, i am not sure the model. his gearing is 100/44 or 100/46, it's in that range but i couldn't remember exactly. His temp after 6 min is in the 150F range.

oh, i am running carpet rubber

what am i doing wrong? please help!!!

thanks

actually 180-200 on a x11 motor is exceptable. anything else you want 160-170. if you dont get into those temp ranges with an x11 they just arent that fast.

But the X11 my friend is using is in the 150-160F range and it's just as fast if not faster. That's why I am scratching my head as to how to get it into that temp since the only difference is the speedo in which I know there will be a slight difference but that's a 30F diff.

Sorry if the questions i am concerned about sound stupid.
