Should be fairly soon. I seen the test version last weekend and got a quick demo on it. It is pretty cool and took no time to change settings. I didn't get one yet but I can say the test one my buddy has works great.

Just wanted to say that I called CC tech line to ask some questions and was blown away with the GREAT conversation I had with these guys. They know their 'stuff' !

Got it a few days ago... same-o.

CASTLE - we are hoping for more CHEAT timing and a 'turbo' function after CHEAT is complete.

nowadays i'm not sold on turbo presence. the tekin guys can actually cross their curves for timing and turbo if folks get too crazy or experimental and that cant be good for a motor. if more timing is needed, select more total timing and broaden the rpm range so its used on the straight where its desired.

With timing coming in gradually, you can actually advance timing on the motor now without hurting it. Setting it to 0 is just a waste. I run mine a little advanced and actually get better infield rip and alot of top speed. Only thing to remember is let the timing advance start about 3-4k rpm later than you would with 0 motor timing. Try it...

I setup on my 13.5 and 17.5 is about the same I just have my punch control set to low on 13.5 to prevent tire spin.

Here's my current setup on my 17.5 Novak Ballistic:

ESC Profile: Cheat Mode
ESC Timing: 50 Degrees Crank that baby up
ESC RPM: 4500-6500 RPM
Punch Control: High
Motor Timing: 40 Degrees
FDR: 4.41
Motor: Novak Balistic
Chassis: Schumacher Mi3 with Exotek Chassis

Note: 17.5 on steroid with this setup, Motor Temp around 140-150 Degrees Farenheit..... Track size 120x50

I'm now trying to find the sweet spot on a Duo2 13.5. Anyone experiment with that?

just curious how you got the rpm range to end at 6500 rpm as i can only go 4500-6400rpm on the castle link? i am going to try this set-up this weekend but since i am on a 80x50 track my fdr will start at around 5.5.

Anyone try or look at this new software yet? Anything visibly different? Will it work with BEC removed 1s ESC's? I don't wanna downlaod it yet till I know what it is, as so far it is not good to put any other verions of the software, except the 1 cell version, in a 1 cell non bec ESC...

also another quick question. on the test unit programming cards are you able to adjust the rpm range? that would be great if you could adjust everything and wouldnt need the castle link and it could be updated?

jeff jenkins,

I just can't remember the actual RPM on top of my head so I just round it off

read the version update info, just removin bugs/hiccups error data. no effect.

that much timing, idk bout the novak, but if track grips up, u'll heat up quick. we learned that already. specially at that 4.4:1. try somethin lighter on gear and just a lil bit off on timing (again grain of salt since i really dont know bout the ballistic). see what happens.
