Default 27T rubber touring

Heibiki or anyone else

I changed the profile for use in 27T for my cyclone on rubber tyres, I know I had the gearing spot on but the motor faded towards the end of the race and was very hot, flat out speed felt very slow but there was masses of punch to get it there.

could anyone put a screen shot up of how this progile should look or email me pictures

cheers

Sorry to disappoint! My comment was based on what it says on the Ko box, ""Repairing becomes impossible when damaged". I guess this is not the case then - time to give them a call!

In addition to what I have already posted on the 2007 Ko Propo Point Series thread that can be found in the nitro forum, I just wanted to add a couple of things. Some of you may or may not have known this but I come from a long history of fuel on road racing. So the fuel stuff is almost second nature to me at this point. I hope that I did not put anyone off here in the electric forum. You see the electric deal is still real new to me and with what little I knew and have learned was all I have had to work with. So I am real grateful to guys like Hibeki and KO Staff for stepping in and answering some of the tougher questions that were being asked. I also wanted you all to know that I was putting together a 1/12 carpet racer for the winter season so that I could go out and learn as much as I could about this electric deal. Because I have to be honest, I think the whole EP deal is pretty cool, just never really had a chance, money or time to jump into it. All in all, I have appreciated your patience.

I didn't want to sound to redundant and so the other half of my announcement can be found in the aforementioned Ko Point Series. Please take a minute to read it. I want to wish all you racers a great rest of 2007 season and beyond.

Sincerely,

Daniel Alvarado

gaza, i apologize, but i've never raced 4 cell before. so i have no idea what the profile should be. i would probably guess that you should have a less aggressive profile so that you dont use up that much battery. BUT since your using a silver can, im sure you can get away with running a stock profile and have no issues making runtime.

here's a standard profile i always start with for stock.

something thats very efficient so you can get the most out of your motor. silver can is all about carrying cornerspeed.

Heibiki,

Hi Sir, Can you send me a good profile for stock 23T motors to start with, i tried and experiment different kinds of profile but it lessens my run time and makes my motor extra hot! and can you explain how to use throttle response. THanks!

Centerfire, you can use the one above, but id raise the whole thing about 5-6 steps.. maybe more if you are not making run time.

Start reading at the top of the page and it explains "throttle response"

go to this page: http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?p=2941215

KO builds the Twister for Hara's line up. I believe the only difference is the preset drive freq settings. Both are great speedo's.
