I'm running mod so pretty much everything I need is on the Speed control. Been doing the updates just for the challenge...

My Novalink has a blown trace on the board for some reason so I'm waiting on a new one. I had it do some pretty funky stuff before I installed a switch inline so it was probably something I did.

not getting a temp read out on the graph, says the same thing after each run, and btw, I just noticed it only goes up to 120 degrees, shouldn't it read higher. O changed sensor wires, could it be something bad in the motor, I have a spare sensor board is that where the temp reading comes from?? thanks in advance. this is on ballistic 17.5 btw

scale changes as the motor and speed control temps change. I have had mine over 140.

This is a known bug in either the software or firmware (can't remember which), which will be fixed in the next release, I was told by support.

I got a chance to run my Kinetic for the first time this weekend and it worked flawlessly. Super easy to program with the Novalink. Thank you Novak for a great product!!

You are correct, we have a bug in the esc firmware and we will be releasing a fix very soon.

How smooth is the kinetic on boosted class... I'm pretty fed up with "T" it is fast but I don't like how the power is being delivered way too aggressive I already tried everything.

Ok guys I'm ready to make the switch back to NOVAK... So I will be asking question...

First question:

What type of timing profile the kinetic has?

Default Kinetics prone to smoking??

At the track yesterday a guys Kinetic smoked and melted the case. He said they are known to do this but I wasn't sure if this was actually the case. He thought he was having motor issues than poof, up in smoke.
