Hi Radio_car_racer,

It sounds horrible. I did experience a similar case before on a 2-nd hand pro-trak. Did your unit is a brand new 5-month old baby? BTW would you pls tell me what is "adjust the pot"? In my case, I finally replace the discharge fet and the problem solve.

Spoke with Phil and he is thinking it's software issue when on 4 cell rather than a discharge current fault. Running a 6 cell pack @ the mo so will report back soon.

RCR,

That looks better, definitely more realistic. I was racing 12th 19T today and I was putting 4300-4400 in on charge but I equalize my cells for about 5 hours before I race.

Let me know what happens with the 4 cell problem, I never seen that one before. What version of the software are you running?

Chris

PT is 10.82v

Phil should be @ Teesside this weekend for the 12th National. He may have a revised rom by then to try

RCR,

I just slapped in a 10.82 this weekend, I haven't done a discharge yet though.

Last time I talked to him he wasn't sure if he was going to get an entry. Hopefully he can slide in. I'm expecting calls and e-mails about 12th setup this weekend.

I ran 19T 12th yesterday with my T-fource, was good but the T-fource pushes a little too much on the rug for my liking.

RCR,

I hope the mod guys don't frighten him off, Mod 12th can be scary..

Our rules allow us to run 19t in Mod class which are not that far of the pace. Hope he runs the 19t you sent over with CRC. That way he'll spend more time on the carpet rather than in the pits repairing the car

RCR,

I think we could run a 19T in mod too, and it isn't much slower you are right. Tell him if he puts new brushes in the Reedy I sent him to make sure the brushes are well seated before he runs it or it will feel slow. The reedy has a lrger com than normal. 767's should work fine once they are broken in fully. also with the 19 he won't have to worry about throttle management. Try running strapped for 8 minutes with a 9 wind.

Chris.

Jaybee,

It's in the settings menu look at the lockouts it will be in there. This function as I recall does double duty as a lockout in normal mode and as the changeover point when in MPCM mode. I'll double check tonight.
