Default LRP X12 + Tekin RS

Anybody have expirence with this combo? Motor is 17.5T..
I have this in order, just wondering if somebody can reccomend me ESC settings to start (shall recieve hotwire as well), and also ideal gearing (tracks are small - medium size, asfalt, rubber tyres, lipo corally 5200mAh 40C), car is Xray T2008, now with 38 front / rear pulleys, 20T medium pulleys.
And also there is big warning on motor to not use agressive timing on ESCīs - should i be worried to use this with Tekin?
Thanks guys so much, iīm new to RC racing, will apreciate any help and sorry for noob questions and my poor english done some search but the Tekin thread is such huuuuge..

Look at Barry Baker's 13.5 settings. Gear 116 spur 30 pinion.

Search the Tekin thread. I know I posted a 17.5 X12 setup in there.

On a fairly large track (20 sec lap times) last week we ran a 6.98 fd, with 4 dot insert. Boost at 45, turbo at 10, ramp 2, delay .1-.2 depending on driver, rpm 15,000-5000. Motor temps were 105-210 with a fan with track temps in the 130's.

That should be a close start depending on your track size.

I use a futaba 9551 low profile servo and SMC 50c lipos for my use. For a smaller track just lower the top rpm and lower to see how it feels and temps.
