You guys that are pushing for a timing limit are assuming that timing is the only thing that effects performance. There's a lot more there than just max timing. Like how long the coils are energized for instance.

Limiting how much performance the motors have is the best way to limit the speeds. A change like we had in brushed back in 91 might be the answer.

Change to a double wind in stock and 13.5 maybe? I don't know exactly...

Yeah, and with the boost/turbo doesn't it actually give the motor extra voltage temporarily? To me that's cheating, because it's almost like running a 3S batt.

No. The voltage supplied to the motor never exceeds the pack voltage.

As an iphone user you can just guess what I want to ask since I am confident that the iphone is capable if it had the right interface.

Any possibility of an external device to give the boost.

One more question I forgot to add earlier. Is the firmware in this speedo updatable? I see the PC interphase for making changes to the settings. I wasn't clear if firmware is updatable.

Thanks.

I highly doubt that you'll see that, they already said it'll be Windows only, they won't be making anything for an iphone, and it would be pretty slow anyways if it's geared for a PC.

I agree, I wonder how the performance is. I have not seen any reviews or any feedback of others using it.

Thanks,Jason.

Can somebody break down this whole boost thing? What is it/hows it work/whats it do to the motors? Race stock offroad 17.5. Is this just a touring thing or have I been missing something in offroad stock class??

Why isn't anyone responding to the date this will be available? My 2 area tracks are dominated by Tekin and basically if you don't have one you're out of the game. I don't want to have to get a Tekin as for the last 20 years I've only had Novak. Please Novak respond and put me in the game.

Maybe because they don't know, lol. I thought they were supposed to be available in December, something must be wrong with it or something, I thought it was already supposed to be available.

We have not announced a release date for the Kinetic; it was never projected for a December ship.

When I get the Engineering OK, I will post the info here.
