I'm going to be getting one of these puppies with my new car, 415MS. I can't wait to get it. Is programming the speedy that difficult??? Can it be done at all without the handheld device or computer interface?? I'd like to do it with the computer interface I think and be an UBER geek with a laptop at the race meets!!!

Getting it programmed to your radio is a snap, but to really make the most out of it you're going to want the programmer. It's not a gimmick, you can feel a difference on the track.

And it shows on the track against other cars with preset profiles.

Drag brake is set with a computer or handheld programer. Without them, you can only set your transmitter. And you are stuck with 3.98kHz as your drive freq.

Alright, I'll see what happens. I'd like to get the programmer so that I can do it at the track too. With the software to the computer, do you have graphs and things like that that you can analyse??? I know that the CS speedies have something like that and I was just wondering if that was the same with this??/

Also.... is the handheld unit quick and easy to use??? I'm not sure what to get really. I would like to think that I could save a profile that I've created on my PC and perhaps download other people's profiles and things like that. But I don't know if that is possible. The KO Website seems to be useless and provides almost no information regarding it.

If Hebiki can use it, it must be easy to use!

Which is VSF version came with the better profiles for Touring car?

1. Hara
2. Tamiya MS
3. Masami
4. RaySpeed

Does each of the above speedo has different selection of built-in profiles just the the LRP QC?

I dont know what the rayspeed and yokomo speedos have programmed onto them, but remember its one profile that was used at the one track in the case of the Hara one with a low turn modified, your best buying the speedo with the programming adaptor for $40 or so more and then using that to tune the speedo how you want it for your motors and tracks.

Masami - 1/12th setting
Rayspeed - 2wd off road
Hara - Low turn TC
Not sure Tamiya but it is the J type version and that must have a setting for 23T or something similar.

wired up the VFS-1 into the new fk05. First KO speedo. I have the programmer but have not had the opportunity to tinker with it. Are the stock settings on the speedo a good start for stock touring? IF not, what should my settings be. I need to get through tomorrow night and then I can play with it more. I just wish they would figure out how to do away with that dam Capacitor!!!

Jonesr,

Stock settings are okay, but will feel to soft...... Some things you need to do:

Current limiter: OFF
Throttle resp: OFF

I cannot remember all of the drive freq's from the top of my head, but I do know that setting 5 is 1.03 khz. I always run 1k in stock.
