Just wanted to put up a quick post to say Thanks to Robert/KOSTAFF.
He received my ESC last Monday in Cali and had it fixed and back to me in Connecticut on Friday. Thanks as always for the awesome support and lightning turnaround.

chris.. i sent you a PM. i really dont know how to gear the komodo for your track. by the looks of it..its about 110.. to 120ft in length? my komodo exploded last time i ran it.. so i didnt have time to figure it out (pebble).

anyways.. sent you a profile. let me know how it works out.

I also run the epic c2 any idea of a good starting point.
I have been running it at 6.2 final but it gets very hot 200 f +
Yet the motor shows no singe of fad and faster lap times at the end

Any thoughts

2 Questions:

1.) Does anyone have ideal settings for stock rubber tire? The settings I currently have on my VFS-1 Pro doesn't seem to have the rip it should on asphalt.

2.) Where can I get the cord to do the settings from a laptop to the VFS-1?

Thanks in advance.

TC Guy- You may also want to set the Throttle response to 1 on the esc.

Hi Guys,

Special discount this weekend for all KO Propo ESC and ESC Value Set:

KO Propo VFS-1 Pro Competition Version Value Set (w/hand held programmer) only $199.99 and our Grand ReOpening special 5% discount for electronics can still be applied.

This is a great time to pick up a second speedo for your car. KO Propo ESC are one of the most popular speed controllers used by the top pro-driver, and it is the most adjustable ESC on the market today! Price is good while supplies last!

Thanks!

Chris, any tips for running 8 minute stock on a polished wood (very low grip) track?

Ive just been running a modified profile and turning the throttle curve to a negative setting on my handset to try and stop wheelspin and gain runtime. I only seem to struggle on getting enough braking for the hard corners..... but more punch cant go amiss!

Would the wet/damp setting be any use do you think?
