I'll give that a try this weekend.

I have to disagree with the drag brake. You want the car to roll when the trigger is at neutral, especially in stock. Drive freq can be at 7.xx or5.xx. Deadband at 1% and minimum drive at at least 6% Brake freq turn up to 15.xx or higher. And turn your brake pot all the way anti-clockwise. Do not turn on drag brake, it makes the car inconsistant off power. Some people like it but not a good habit to get into if you want to make A-main.

Monitor the trigger throw of your radio with the pit wizard and adjust end points so that the trigger throws have minimum values as per the pit wizard manual.

Good luck

Thanks !

I had to finally get rid of my 9-year-old Futaba Magnum FM because I could only get around 370 for the neutral to max throttle value. The Pit Wizard software said the min. needed to be at least 550. I'm at 570 now.

those profiles are from todd hodge at losi.....i am pretty sure he makes some a-mains.....

Mr Losi...do you really run drag brake in stock? I make sure my car creeps forward when the throttle is nuetral, stock motors have too much brake built in when I let off the throttle. Of couse I run a one way and never use brakes anyway except to keep my car from rolling when I line up for a race.
