Whether or not you are using ABS you still have to set your endpoints. I have used it and it still locks up at 100%. Also take into consideration is the track prepped? are you even running on a track? Foams or Rubber, front spool/oneway? All of this comes into play when making brake adjustments. Any dust at all on the surface and you will skid/slide.

This is another good point. ABS on a transmitter simply pulses the brakes. So you would be alternating lockup and unlock, lockup and unlock. It's not a good thing on an electric touring car.

Simply put: reduce your brakes. I run 30% brakes at my track because it's all I need to make all the corners.

Guys the idea of abs is to ade you under bracking so you have control of your steering wheels in a low grip situation
Im not asking for all the set up situation in the world all i asked is if any one has used it with the spx and how did they get on with it
Thanks gents for all your answers any way

I do all my braking in a straight line


I have used the ABS in off-road: I could never find a 'pulse' balance I was happy with as it does not have wheel lockup sensors like a 'real' ABS system

I always end up setting brakes using ATL so they don't lock on the hardest braking section of the track

What about setting your Brake on your transmitter to max for a broad linear control and then set your speedo's brake to the point it doesn't lock up the car anywhere on the track. from there you can opt to set up some drag brake to drive faster and deeper into the corners more consistantly without scrubbing off too much speed with a sloppy braking finger. constructive criticism welcomed. I'm always looking for better ways to improve the performance of my speedo and share it with everyone.

Sorry to sound stupid, but how do you set these up for 1S. I just connected mine to a receiver, plugged in a servo to the receiver, and then plugged in a receiver pack. I performed a radio check, throttle worked fine, steering worked alright, but then when I switched off the speed control smoke poured from it. Now it will only power up when the receiver pack is plugged into the receiver. I think I broke it...

That is smart to do, even for the throttle. On my M11 I always set the EPA's for throttle and brake as high as they will go before I program the speedo (I think throttle goes to 140 and brake goes to 160). Then I leave throttle maxed out and dial my brakes down to 40-80 depending on the track.

Sorry to say, but the Tekin with the 203 program is that good, at least this week it is.

The guy I pit for made the switch, but I'm sure he'll be back to Blue when they are the fast-one-of-the-week again. He's just that competitve.
