I'm pretty sure that is right. I could be wrong. Which esc are you using? VFS-2000 or VFS-1? Last I checked, it worked this way with the VFS-2000.

ok vfs-1 gurus

I run a roar stock in sedan on a high speed carpet track with foams.

I probably let go to 3/4 throttle about 3 turns, and 1/2 throttle for 1 turn, the rest is full welly.

would something like this be a good start


4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
12
13
14
15
16
17
18
4
5
6
7
8
9
etc

with a current limiter set at 26?

i dropped current to 12 and had way less rip.

or could you reccomend a profile with high speed, but mid punch.

Brit, you have it backwards. you want lower numbers (lower drive freq) for more punch.

try something like

5
5
4
4
3
3
2
2
1
1
1
1
1
1
1
1
2
3
4
5
... etc

also try using a throttle response of "1" or "2" if you are smooth on the throttle. helps maximize the powerband. if your choppy with it, on and off, keep it off.

ok, makes sense.

So starting with 4 it would have less punch from zero, but when laying off teh throttle a little, would have mid corner punch??

What would the effect be if i ran "1"s across the board??

Also, what if i turned the current limiter off?

Current limiter off- all of the esc profiles that I have looked at have the current limiter off. For racing you want all of the ponies available. The current limiter is your index finger. We all have great throttle control, right?

"i dropped current to 12 and had way less rip."

I could not find a setting of 12, what do you have current limiter actually set at?

Actually I think current limiter setting of 12 = off

Read back a few pages and you will find a listing for those of us that don't have a poor windows system (Apple Rocks)and use a text editor to open the files.

I have a Hara Twister 2.1 and plan on using it for mod foam racing(8T V2) is it essential that I install a fan before running mod or just wait and see if I have a problem? I will be racing indoor carpet.

Charles,

Actually 12 = 120 Amps
There are 12 different settings(40-260A) plus an off.


An excessive current can be prevented from flowing to the motor by controlling the maximum value of the current. The current limiter setting in the VFS-1 can help to protect the motor and the battery.
I hope this helps Charles!
Best Regards


Alex Cortez

alex.. i was wrong on that assumption. 12 does not equal 120... see robert's quote below:

1=60A
2=80A
3=100A
4=120A
5=140A
6=160A
7=180A
8=200A
9=220A
10=240A
11=260A
12= OFF

If you have a doubt about the setting, use the PC software to open the file. It's FREE.
