I ran RS pro for the first time today but had a little problem.
About 6-7 min into racing my car just stops. Still have steering but no action on motor. It happened twice. I was using 3.00v lipo cut off on 1 cell mode with 200. Running 4.5 motor with receiver pack/regulator. I had RS pro switch on. Problem was gone after I turned off lipo cut off and didnít turn on RSpro switch.
When lipo cut off kicks in dose car slow down before it stops?
My car didn't and battery was nowhere near dumped (only used 2000mAh on Thunder power 5000)

Apart from this problem, I'm very happy with RSpro. After DNF on first 2 heat I managed to come back and got TQ and 2nd over all in finals today at major event here in Sydney.

Anyone else had similar problem? or did I miss something and not set up correctly?

Sometimes in modified (single cell or 2 cell) you will get current spikes that drop the voltage below the cutoff. This can be worse if you're running on a high bite surface.

Locally, most of us aren't running a voltage cutoff. You pretty much will never dump in a spec class. You can dump in mod but when it does you know it (it only takes about a straightaway to feel the car dumping. All you have to do is stop running when it dumps and you'll be fine.

If you feel better with the voltage cutoff turned on try using the current limiter. Limiting the current will help keep the cutoff from kicking in early.

Looking for some starting settings for Carpet Oval v200, 13.5 1 cell. Trying to get this class up and running before going to BRL races and Snowbirds.

Hey guys, Just got version 200 installed & I don't see "turbo" adjustment. Am I just missing it hidden in the gui somewhere?

Did you do an uninstal of your previous version before installing 200? If you didnt that might be the issue. If not, it should be over on the right as a number to adjust.

Thanks Fred.
Maybe Tekin should come up with delayed cutoff or something.
If voltage go below 3.00v for few sec cutoff kicks in, not just split sec so this doesn't happen. I don't see point of having voltage cut off if mod drivers are scared of DNF and don't use it and spec drivers don't need it as they only use half or less mAh.

You can also download it now from the Tekin web site.

i did not think 200 was on the website. I though that randy sent them out because he has special instructions with 200. basically you could damage a motor with 200 so he did not put it on the site

You may be correct on that one. When I used it to update to ESC on my oval cars, it did download from the Tekin web site. Not sure what it got, but I did have 200 sent to me by Randy.

Sorry for the "Miss Statement"
