Jills, congratulation for the win!!!

One qustion on the Orion R10 Pro 1s/2s

As far as i understand does not required any booster (because has it built in) but when i switch the esc of my 1/12 at the track i had to plug in a receiver battery pack for the servo to work properly.

Does the R10 Pro 1s required the receiver pack or booster to work with 1C battery or i did something wrong on the set up of the esc?

Thank you very much in advance and congrats again.

Lorenzo

Hi Jilles and Congrates on being World Champion

I was looking at your set up sheet from the Worlds and was wondering about the memo on the sheet. What does the "100% negative pressure" refer to.

Thanks! The 1S R10 has a build in booster and you don't have to use receiver battery! 2S/3S you will need a receiver battery. At the Worlds 1/12 I ran the R10 1S without receiver pack and it worked perfect!

With the new "buggy" shocks you can build them that the piston goes all the way back in, this is 100% negative pressure! It's like complete opposite from rebound!

Sorry Craig for the confusion. At my Jg-racing page I posted my own set-up. And later Kiyo posted my set-up. The difference is the camber link shim, because he add 0.5mm because of the shims under the bulkheads. As well the camber was measured by me with a Hudy camber tool, Kiyo check with Tamiya camber tool. I hope this is clear!

Thanks Jilles, I thought that may be the case

Correct me if I'm wrong but your setup said the shocks were mounted on hole 1, while kiyo said hole 2 - is it a different tower?

Also, if I'm not mistaken, you ran the plastic arms and not the carbon ones, does that just give more grip?

Do you know if the buggy style shocks will be released?

Sorry for all the questions, thanks again "champ"

His Shocks...it looks like his car had these shock bodies and these caps but the caps on his car were in the light gray TRF low friction plastic not the normal darker plastic....not sure if they offer the shock tops in low friction plastic yet?

http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=51280

You would probably need this to mount the new shock tops to the shock towers.....his car looked to have some option/proto shock mount???

hi jilles, when changing brands of tires do you setup for the same feel? for example coming from sorex to ride tires? for me, have less traction i tried harder and then softer springs more droop etc but it doesnt have the same feel... should i concentrate on setting it up or just face the fact that it has a lot less traction and drive accordingly? the local racers here have already caught up with sorex tires using ride tires.. i tried some of their set up changes but i still dont like the feel and dont feel fast even when practice racing with other people..

Congratulations Jilles...

What effect did you find going to the XC and C block in the rear of the car? I have liked B blocks on the front of my car, what would changing the rear to XC and C do?

Yeah it works, but you have to remove the low voltage protection completely (with DSBR).
If you have problems removing it, plug it to 2S battery but use the DSBR adapter cable that comes with the 1S ESC. Always have to use the DSBR 1S adapter cable with the 1S version, it doesn't work with the one that comes with 2-3S.

Congrats for Jilles!

Jilles, do you use 100% brake on transmitter and change the max brake force on the ESC only? Does the brake work somehow differently with that compared to 100% brake on esc but 50% on transmitter?
Your 1/12 setup has quite long gearing and lot of boost, did the esc run with reasonable temps?
Usually have used about 30mm gearing and about 10deg boost and some turbo.

Jilles, Congratulations on the win!

i was looking at photos of your car on redrc and notice some shims under the motor mount. What are they for?

Hi everyone.

I got a R10 Pro and are planing on running it in 13.5 boosted class. Found this setup by Jilles, but can't find the firmware mentioned there on the orion web page.

Anyone know where i can fint it?

Firmware: V3.0_110729_STOCK (http://teamorion.com/images/product_...p_Jilles_3.pdf)
