What results have you been getting at like a 3.8 0r 3.9. How long is the straight.
The guys at my track are running like 4.6 with a about a 70 foot straight way, in order for me to even compete I have to go in the low numbers, but always picks back up in the infield and is what I have to rely on in order to stay strong in the field.

hello!

I have some innocent questions about the BMC, just because i have never really had any exposure to KO. I plan to run it in a 4wd Mod buggy w/ 6.5

How reliable are they, really? any excessive failures? how is their costumer service should i have a failure? (maybe some advise from a KO rep?)

How well does the BMC handle mod? how adjustable is it to tune for mod? i have read all of the literature on the KO website, but i don't completely understand it.


What is the PC interface like? i always have my laptop with me at the track, but what functions does the software serve? can the ESC software be updated through it, or must the ESC be sent to KO to be updated in the future?

Thanks!

I've never had an issue with this ESC nor have I heard of ANY issues from the many people I know who run them/have run them. They handle mod motors without effort and for extra cooling, you can even buy the Worlds Kit which includes a fan to attach the ESC.

The user interface is excellent and consists of sliders to adjust the entire powerband.

For your application, you'll love the ESC and have no issues with power (err maybe too much at times! )

all answers could be solve if you just come visit. I was running the bmc and still have them in my pit box. i can show you the interface and Larry P was running them in off road.

their support is second to none and Robert is the man with the plan.

Smoothest speedy I have ever run and can also be set to be aggresive if needed.

I run the ver1.5 with mod in 4wd 7.5 and it is superb.

aside from running stock, I recommend this speedo to anyone running mod motors. Smooth power delivery and adjustable throttle feel though out the travel.

Now if only we had an update to keep those Tekin and now HW, at bay. I'm keeping mine around for that day to come.

The Ko is very nice for running mod motors and you can use quite a bit of the timing i ran it in my sprint car for mod and it was ballistic. Dont be afraid of KO product....Top notch in my opinion. I also have alot of profiles I could send you. Or if I end up at Mikes soon I can pass them your way

Exactly !!

But when is KO coming with a update for the (pro-) stock? The Tekin is killing me!!
So difficult could't be to put a RPM batch on the programme...
