Yeah I tried the D3 with some timing but it was getting fade towards the end of the run in that configuration. I didn't end up running the thunder power as I hadn't had enough track time with it and it was a little doughy out of corners which I am sure can be rectified with some more testing

I am also testing the speed passion 17.5 V3 motors this weekend so will hopefully have some base settings I can post up from that

A little doughy huh, is it the red stock rotor in the ThunderPower? I might have forgotten to mention that I'm running the Green Rotor. I may have to try the D3 then. Oh one other thought, is Zero timing in the D3 zero timing? Or is it 30? I'm not sure on the ThunderPower either. Do a quick bench test. Put the timing on zero on the ThunderPower and see if the boost kicks in. Then add timing and check it then. Then toss in the D3 and do the same. See what happens. Thats how I found out about the ThunderPower.

Got to run today again. Did a little more testing.

Air temp was 84 F. Track temp was 116 F.
Track size, 17.5 boosted ran lap times of high 19 and low 20 second.
Motor was the ThunderPower 17.5 with Green Rotor and 15 endbell timing.

My starting profile was 0/10/12/3 with 5.5 final. I switched to 0/10/7/3. But forgot that Mode 3 profile 7 was for the LRP motor. It was dog slow on the straight. So I switched to 0/10/11/3. It was still slow on the straight because the boost kicked in too late. Motor temps were hovering around 160's to 170's degree F after a 6 minute run. I ended up back to profile 12. I ran 0/10/12/4. But this time I change my gearing. I went with 6.5 final. Motor temp was about 170s to 180s. So keep an eye on motor temp if you run that profile with that final. The gearing change definitely helped out. It let the motor rev up and boost to kick in sooner. I think I may try 0/10/10/4 but with more motor timing and see what that does. Or dropping the teeth on the pinion even more. We'll see. The LRP seems to have more bottom end than the Tekins, but less top end. Still working on that.

I didn't do too much testing this past weekend. I kept the 6.5 gearing. But I changed my profile from 0/10/12/4 to 0/10/10/1. The air temp was high 80s to low 90s F. Track temp was around 120~130 F. My TP 17.5 with Green rotor had a temp of 160~170 F after a 6 minute qualifier on a 15~16 second lap technical parking lot track. For the main I went with 0/10/12/1 with same gearing and ended up with temps of 170~180 F. Motor timing stayed at 15. When doing this setup, always practice and check temps at the 2 and 4 minute marks so that you don't fry anything. Oh, I wasn't running a heat sink or motor fan either.

Out of curiosity, would you trade a little bit of performance for easier solderabilty (right word?)?
Sorry to dig this up again but I was rewiring my sxx last night and I had this thought.

Reto,
Would it be possible/sensible to have the PCB holes open on one side in a U shape like the X12 motors instead of having closed holes? It would be a lot easier to solder that way and I'm guessing there would not be any significant loss

Look in the SXX V2 setup thread.
