just got a vsf-1 and was going over the settings and I have one question. What exactly is the "power save voltage" setting? It sounds like the voltage cutoff at which the esc will stop supplying voltage to the motor to maintain steering but the instructions aren't very clear on this.

when you run out of the juice... the esc will save some voltage so you can steer your car out of the way. this is the setting for that

btw.. did you pick up the masami edition? some people are curious about the profile thats in there. maybe you can post it when you have a chance?

It's quite the opposite on what was said on my manual-

The Power Save Voltage: The BEC output is set and the voltage in which the BEC is set to four stages. A steady voltage to the last minute running is maintained. This is significantly effective to the category that uses four cell with low voltage.

I didn't get the masami version yet, I was able to pick up a regular VSF-1 and the handheld adaptor for cheap so I went with that. I will be getting either the masami or rayspeed version vsf-1 hopefully in the next couple of weeks.

Silly paula, im guessing its a small much more capacitor as if you notice it plugs into the reciever, so i think its just shoo gloo'd to the top of the servo and then the VFS 1 cap is by the speedo.... He is only running a single diode on his speedo though, maybe someone should point this out to him (Not me)

Alright, the cap on the servo is plugged into the receiver to help keep the servo working. By that I mean that when you run very low-turn, very high AMP draw motors, when you punch it, sometimes the motor will draw so much from the batteries (when it spikes) that the speed control doesn't save enough energy to power the servo motor, and you get what seems to be a glitch every time you come out of a corner. I used to do this with the old speed control. The only reason I don't do this with the new speed control is because the guys around here got bored of being beaten in mod....so now they get beat in 19turn

-Mike Patterson

P.S. If I am mistaken about all of this....then I too am utterly confused.

Yeh, I originally was amazed to see that picture, but its just a really short but wide capacitor that has been stuck to the top of the servo, looking like its a tall capacitor thats inside the servo.

Hebiki your the VFS king!

I tried this setting, it's awesome. I wanted a little more top end. So Roger, kicked up 2-3 more after stage 16. The car was fast, finished 3rd overall in a field mixed with both expert and sportsman stock driver. After the main to pick up the cars off the track, you can smell my motor burning! I was geared 7.05, Monster Stock motor, 3600 batteries. And the track layout was flowing and fast.

I find you need to let the throttle in a little slower, i have to admit in the heat of it all i throttle jam a touch, but provided you dont then it should be okay.. Were the brushes discoloured or was the motor just really hot? As long as it doesnt fade over the 5 minutes i dont worry too much about the motor temp now!
