A 10.5 1/12th rs setup? Just need a starting point as I'm new to tekins.

Small-medium track with a 20 meter straight.

Thanks in advance.

throtle profile 5 2400 to 7000 rpm ramp 2.0 ramp rate 40 boost turbo 5 to 10 .1 delay 38pinion 76 spur start there. Should be a safe setting Check motor temp after 4 minutes. This would be starting point but im not a 100percent sure cause i havent run a 10.5 on that small of a track

Default 24' x 40' Bull Ring Setup

Jeff, what would be a good starting point for a 17.5 Redline in a 12th scale pan car on a track this small. Lanes are tight, about 6'. There is a sweeper on to the straight and another at the end of the straight effectively giving us about 60' of WOT. The infield is quite tight and technical.

Another questions would be in regards to the different rotors that Tekin has available, what do you gain or lose by switching rotors in a 17.5 motor?

Thanks,
Bob

I would be around 76/48. Lower turbo and keep all the other settings the same as the setting i posted already. Run mid timing on the motor.
