Default What's good to program in an ESC?

Yo dudes, I got my ESC back finally!

I got these settings to play with:
a) Start Current
b) Acceleration Time
c) Continuous Current
d) Turbo Start
e) Minimum Throttle
f) Drag Brakes
g) Maximum Brakes
h) ABS
i) BEC voltage

It's a schulze Eagle 3. What's do you guys, especially those with say Keyence, Quatums, TC2's set on your escs?

Thanks and have fun!

Hmmm, depends on track and car.

Never heard of programming BEC voltage before..... If it's right, set it for the max. voltage, the servo can take. This give you the fastest steering.

I've disabled my drag brake, since I'm using a one-way system.

I'm also using maximum brake and ABS, due to the one-way, but I do it from the TX. It's easier...

I use minimum throttle, so my mod-ESC fit my stock motor better.

I'm running on carpet, so the rest goes like this:

Start current, cont. current and acc. time, I just go for maximum.

Hope this helps.

Cole,
how does your ABS work? My manual simply lists 3 settings for ABS, without an explanation what each one does! I emailed them, and they replied each one has a different pulse frequency

I'm on 4wd so tried hard braking from the straight with all 3 honestly can't feel a difference

You should only use ABS on slippery surfaces.

Remember, my ABS is in the TX. Also, I aint got an ESC like yours, nor do I know it.

However, the ABS in my TX is working like every other ABS in RC cars I ever heard of. The principle goes like this: Assume you activate your brakes to 50%. Now the TX switch the on and off between zero and 50% in a cycle. In a gas car you can actually see the servo turning the brake on and off.

On my TX, I can change two ABS parameters: The cycle (slow and fast) and the amount of braking from 0-100.

To me, it sounds like you can choose between 3 cycle frequencies.

The point in the cycling is, that the car brakes pretty hard, but before it slides, it gain grip again. And then it brake hard again and so on.

Hopes this help you.

Thanks Cole. I guess between the 3 types of ABS, just can't feel it . Maybe my car is too slow

BTW, here is a pic of the Schulze Eagle 3 replacing my Tekin G12C
