if you need a profile for the BMC for 10.5, 13.5,17.5 check the thread.. there's a couple on there. also the Reedy/Drew Ellis profile from Nats is also good.
Does BMC V1.52 have a better setup than BMC Stock Manager for modified motors?

Why don't you check the BMC thread? This thread is for the brushed VFS speed controls...

Default volac ms c3 for F104 formula tuned

hi there,

it is a whole year since last post.

I can't believe if anyone crazy like me still buy this esc new.

but in recent we run brushed formula every Sunday morning at a free track in Hong Kong, typically white pig.

I m crazy enough that also bought the ics link. so I will test the profile in coming weeks.

I am still running a VFS-1 also. I am glad I am not the only one!

It is still a very good esc for brushed motors.

rcnewb2004, I ve already tested with the volac ms original profile, for which can play with QC3 nicely.

tomorrow I will test a stock profile which is quite aggressive, hope to see good result.

any experience with F104?

glad to see you still running vsf1 also.

Have you upgrade to 2.4 version with lipo/life cut?

Thumbs up

I'm running VFS-1 C3 for Tamiya TCS races in the USA where the class runs on stock mabuchi motor.

This is still one of the best brushed ESC available on the market.

About the VFS Manager 2.4, I think it's only available in Japanese and the Voltage Cutoff mode can be set highest at 6.0V, but this is still too low for lipo cutoff, in my opinion. Lipo should never be allowed to go near 6.0V or irreversible damage will be done. And to activate the 6.0V cutoff, the lipo has to drop below 6.0V, which is not good for the battery.

Ideally, I wish KO PROPO can release VFS Manager 2.5 in English with the cutoff at 6.4V instead of 6.0V.

Hi Lcvwing,

I have not had any experience with F104.
I have been running a TB EVO V with 19T brushed motor.
Still running old Eastpower 4600mah packs.

If there is a Lipo cutoff that can be introduced into the VFS-1 (I do not have the c3 version) then I would definitely upgrade to Lipo.

I am not using Lipo yet because I have no money to upgrade the ESC and the batteries at the same time. This would definitely solve all my problems.

I think eComet's comment is very insightful, but I am wondering is the effect on the batteries very serious and damaging?

Lipo cannot go below 3.0V per cell, or it will do permanent damage. Good case you'll have unusable battery, but worse case you'll get puffed Lipo and risking fire when you're trying to charge the damaged cell.

I ve already test the lipo cut function. ecomet is correct, even the car slow down it didn't cut. Lucky is even with "feel" you will know when to stop run. 6.6v in my case. So feel too worry to the missing function it just made you little more running time.

I have tested the hebiki stock profile start at 5, top at 1 and end at 33.

For my F104 with formula tuned 32T motor, to my surprise it is not as fast as the original profile. I will test more profiles in coming weeks.

I did not save the original profile of volac ms c3. Wonder if any one can send to me.

Does the Hara Twister 2.2 have li-po cut off?
