While I understand that it can give you an idea of how efficient the esc is. And with that said they are all doing basically the same thing.

I am running it in a TC. Right now the FDR of 5.71. I will have to try the current limiter. I know that I keep lowering the drive freq to give the car a little more punch out of the corners. I like the smooth power but the track I am running is a little short from corner to corner with a short 60 ft straight. I know I am a little over geared, but I can run this without problem with both the tekin and the mamba without getting into the 170F range. I will have to try the current limiter.

My link arrived today. I had some difficulty installing the software, but eventually got it.

Its a great way to program a speed control. I noticed my green brake light went away once I played with braking, but the action changed to how I wanted it, so I left it alone.

I mean this as a compliment for Novak. I'm not good with computers, and I dont care to be. Turn them on and they had better work...otherwise I throw them. I had no trouble changing values and applying them to the Kinetic.

Thank You for a great product. I was pulling wheelies with my sc10 and the 10.5 motor.

Macdude try this I think you will like it
ballistic 17.5
fdr 5.0
55 timing
no boost
30 or N on motor
start 7250
end 13500
limiter 3
custom thr curve default 2
min drive 15
drag brk 8
this gives the car lots of pop from corner to corner with a 17.5. with a 60 foot straight top end really isnt an issue and boost off keeps temps down. let me know if this helps.

reallY?? 5 fdr? I'm running tc at norcal hobbies and although it has a big streight with a 17.5 ballistic, I'm up to about 6.5fdr, 35*, with boost and 2 current limiter and I'm still too hot! Running out of smaller pinions!

your getting hot because your undergeared. undergearing will make a motor hot just like overgearing will.

yes 5.0 on the fdr. if you will notice i use the motors torque to get out of corners and my start rpm is higher than other speedos. with this set up i am using more gear and less timimg in the infield thus producing less heat. here is my email i can send you my exact set up file for norcal if you would like to try it. [email protected] i also run this set up at speedworld and no other car had the same grunt in the infield as mine

Yes, it does! I used these settings for a complexly unrelated use and they are very good. Thank You for posting them!

Yea, I used them in my sc10. Gearing is 75/25. There are so many adjustments possible that it becomes difficult to decide what to do.

The timing boost is amazing. My green brake light wont light up once I change the braking curves, but the brakes work very well, so no big deal.

Thanks, I will have to give this a try. The controller seems to have a lot of rip and I like that, so gearing in the 5 FDR range should work. I just wasn't sure if I needed to go that low. I don't have a pinion and spur combo that gets me to 5.0 yet. As with everyone else running in the 6-7 FDR. I have seen some even higher than 7 but I think that is just too extreme.

I worked on it a little today. Did not have a chance to try the 5.0 FDR, I did lower the on motor timing 1 tick mark. I am running a DUO 2. That seemed to help some.

with a Duo 2 make sure to temp often with these settings. the Ballistic motors seem to have more torq and easly pull these settings
