I feel the flowing layout contributed to the manageable temps and low FDRs compared to the carpet tracks that myself and Paul are used to.

Also, I was thinking it was also nice and cool last night, about 60 deg. So, that probably helped out, too.

You could probably start with Masterhit's set-up from above. He was using profile 7, 4-dot timing, and a FDR of 5 and was rediculously fast. Of course, you'll probably have to adjust the FDR to accomodate your track and temp.

This is my carpet set-up..... It should get you started in the right direction.

I ended up at -10 timing (4 dot) with an FDR of 5.57 with 2/7/1/1 on my SPX on carpet with a 90' odd straight and flowing layout with one high speed muchmore 30mm fan.

It also must be said that (and I'm not insinuating anything about anyone) that driving style, battery, and car maintenance will greatly affect performance and the amount of heat/speed generated.

Er.... A long way of saying make sure everything else is spot on before you start dialing in timing advance and gearing. It's just something that is worth repeating....

I have a bajillion hours into making sure my TC5 is spot on balanced, dialed, and spins freely in a light breeze and feel it definitely helps make life easier on the electronics and allows for a bit more aggressive gearing/profile!

I have been very happy with the X12 17.5's performance. I left the motor timing alone, and worked with the gearing (4.88 FDR) and Ko VFS-1 profile (custom map, 3 on the timing). I noticed a loss in power with motor temps over 170+ degrees. It kinda feels like losing the peak off a stick of NiMh's... nothing too dramatic.

The brakes are outstanding with this motor. They feel stronger than the best stock motor i have ever used. I am getting pulled the last few feet of the straight by locals that run the Tekin setup... but i have more than enough for the infield. The rest is knocking the rust off the trigger finger. Its so nice to just wheel... and not stress over motor and battery maintenance.

alright so ran the X12 17.5 for the first time last night, motor has good rip but was way hot in a hurry. I am running 4.47 FDR in a TC5 Rubber setup... The track is a copy of the 2009 snowbirds layout with about 80ft of straightaway. Power is good peaks out about 60% down the straight but comes off at 190 after ~6 min, car has fresh bearings and drive train is pretty free.

17.5 X-12 with oo timing block
Running a TC sphere 1/8/1/1
Josh H. rubber setup on the TC5
Jaco Blue

I know that people are saying dont go about 6 on the SPX, does the same apply to the sphere? I like the punch in the infield, feels about where i like it, dont have a lot of time to test it before this weekends race and was wondering where people are at with a sphere esc.

Any suggestions to try... have seen like using the oooo timing and FDRs in the 5 the instructions say start at 4 FDR, if I go to 4 this thing is gonna melt haha

thanks

Sphere on 8 is ok. Just try running less gear, 5.5. Trust me give it a shot. Also motor does seem to give higher temps don't worry about it unless your over 200f.
