Robert, that's ok, because I sure as hell won't share mine with him either

I ran 17 across the board, honest

After installing VFS-1, I noticed that the gear noise is much wider than VFS-2000. That means, it shows wide throttle range.
We can hear the difference.

As you pointed out, everybody will start using VFS-1 soon. But the secret things is not VFS-1 but the program.
I think VFS-2000 is still nice ESC once people set up the appropriate program.

Are you coming SoCal tonight, Chris?
as much as i want to..i wont be able to. we had 3 dev guys splitting up 170 clients... now its just me and another guy.. that means 85 clients each! OUCH! :crying: im in the same boat as robert... not much for a-main esp at socal (where everything has to be top notch to be competitive) now i can rely on my speedo to make up wherever im lacking (old tires, or so-so motor)

gary.. you'll never believe me.. but it was 17 across the board. i hardly let off the throttle. i didnt tell robert because i know he wont believe me! i did use mike's profile this past sat at the mazda cup in the stock class. worked very well!

Mr Sasaki? as in Eiji? Man that guy has so many speed secrets! he told me he doesnt even use matched batteries!

Yup! esmie is " eiji " here!
As I told you many times, you don't have to use matched battery.
I just purchase non-match battery.
It is not necessary to buy it. It is a kind of manufacturer's strategy
, isn't it?
What you have to do is to discharge battery individually. Then,
charge it by record breaker!
That is it!

I have seen picture of the record breaker but that´s all information I have. What is special with the record breaker?
Any other information?

Hi! V12,

Please check the following website. (All the language is written
by Japanese, but still you can take a look at the product).
Click product section!

http://www.cna.ne.jp/~straight/

The big difference between normal charger and Record Breaker is;
The record breaker has three divided charge operation system thourgh whole charging process.

For example,

from 1mAh to 1200mAh (Charged at 4.5A)
from 1200 mAh to 3500 mAh (Charged 8A)
from 3500 mAh to 4700 mAh (charge 3.5A)
*delta peak 24 mV

So most of charger is a linear charger,which means it cannot
change the setting while charging battery.
On the other hand, record breaker can change the setting.

When I charge the battery by using linear charger, the battery
become really hot! which might be damaged a lot.
But if I charge battery to use the above example set up by record breaker, battery does not become hotter than the one charged by linear charger, even I charge 8A in the mid -section.
So, I think it extend the battery life.

And what is more, the record breaker can be upgraded by changing inside ROM, which most charger cannot.
So far, they have ver.1.0, ver.1.2, and ver.1.5
Latest one is ver. 1.5.

Here is a small caution. Whenever you use record breaker,
battery should be fully discharged. If you don't have discharger, the best way is to connect resister to each cell, and then stay away til the next race. (Before charging, remove resiter at all, and then, start charging!)
(There are a bunch of 0.9V discharger in the market. So you can use these individual discharger)
but I recommend to use hook up resister indiviually to each cells
to reduce the voltage to the Zero(0).)

If you start using both individual discharger and record breaker,
you will notice that the battery capacity will be increasing.

Whenever I charge my non-match battery, the battery always reach 4500 to 4700 mAh. Can you believe it???
So I like it!

Hi Robert,

Any news regarding the new software and instructions for VFS1 ?

I would be interested in getting a good program for Modified & 23 t motors.

In fact, Robet and I tested so many curves already, but now
his curve and my curve setting is very similar.
(Is this correct, robert?)
Talking about record breaker info., I just send PM to you.
When you upgrade the charger, you just send it to them.
Normally it takes a week to be upgraded.
Now, I have two(2) Record Breaker ver 1.5(latest ver) and
one(1) ver.1.2. This is enough, dude!
Next time when you come to SoCal, I will show you Fortless
Discharger, too. This is the same manufacturer made.
You can make matched battery, high current (35A)discharge,
battery condition memo thourgh PC. And so many function....
Hope you like it, too.
