Set you brake to 100% when setting the esc to the Tx.

I believe the TRF 2002 was the VFS2000 so that would make that one the VFS-1.

BTW I got my VFS-1 yesterday and this thing is awesome. So small, compact, and light. Can't wait till Saturday to try it out. I already love it more than my Keyence ESC.

Robert are you back at work? Ive got a problem with my speedos and I need to know if youve ran into this before. When runing Mod oval on carpet when I take off under hard accleration the motor acts like the battery is dead for about a half a straight then it takes off and is fine untill I let off the throttle for the next corner... Ive checked the current limiter and its turned off. Ive changed all profiles and reset the speedo...It does it with all 3 speedos. I am running 6 and 7 turns on carpet.

If your at work tomorrow just let me know and I'll call ya.

Jackpot! Thank you, i was getting very frustrated. One more question. I plan to run this car mostly fro stock, do i still need the schotky diode on the motor or is that only for hotter motors. I hav never used any kind of diode before. Thanks again.

EA.. got the same problem. i know what the problem is and how to fix it make sure your throttle response is TURNED OFF. current limiter you can crank up to 260A. but the throttle response for me was set to 1 i think? or 9? (i forget)...i had the same exact thing happen to me. i turned it off and the car was ballastic again.

use the new diode that came with it. if you want more RPM and easier brush wear ... get one of the hyperboosters.

Does anyone know or can anyone suggest making a PocketPC version of the ICS software for the VFS1/2000???

It'd be cool bringing a PDA along instead of the whole laptop to the track.

Damn you Chris, I was only going to switch to the KO ESC, but now I'm gonna go KO for everything it looks like... Cant argue with the quality of the stuff, and I always see Robert helping people out at SoCal, win-win.

EA-
I'm back at the office. The problem that you are having is a common one, the Tokyo office did a demo for me.

When the voltage in your battery pack gets low, stabing the throttle will yeild a slow accelleration. You have two options:
1. roll onto the throttle
2. play with the throttle response to get the throttle to roll for you.

If you have any other questions let me know.

No PDA software yet. We have talked about it and it may come out later next year, but don't quote me on it. We are now testing a USB version of the PC interface. Once we get all of the bugs worked out, we will release it.
