Glad to help Bill. Your car looked good on the track. I'll have to get my WGT going and throw down with you.

I'm not sure if I saw it in this thread or in the RS thread but...I remember seeing someone who had wired their LiPo RX pack into the servo lead of their RS so that it would use the BEC in the RS to regulate voltage to the RX and only use the 1 switch. Someone from Tekin said it would work at the time but wanted to evaluate it more. Did this turn out to be something bad to do or was it OK? The only issue I remember hearing about was the voltage cut off wouldn't work which isn't much of an issue for me as I'll be running 17.5 and 13.5 both limited profile in 1/12th and WGT so I won't be anywhere near low voltage at the end of a run.

Randy, You gave me some food for thought about my high/low rev settings brought over from carpet.

Now I have to figure out how to make the car go at the IIC with no boost or turbo...

Bill, crank the timing up in the motor, select timing profile 1, find your rollout...

I can see you're not going to make this a "normal" setup but I'd like to get an "unofficial" nod before wireing my RS-pro like this.

Thanks

I run a TQ booster in 10.5 WGT on a large track (235 ft. back straight) with no issues. We run 6 minute heats.
