11=260A
12= OFF

If you have a doubt about the setting, use the PC software to open the file. It's FREE.
chr15tophe- The numbers in the text file for brake frequency, power save, throttle response, and current limiter will appear different if you open it as a text file. Open them using the PC software.

I meant, what's the recommended gearing for that profile Alex C described? (incase there is some confusion) I have some good GP3300s that should be able to take a beating. But I am concerned about the gearing mostly.

i dunno? it depends on your track. at the Tamiya track, the reedy quad mags were being geared from 5.2 - 5.5 at reedy race. at socal, they're somewhere near 5.7-6.0. chameleon 2 19T are around 5.5-5.8 at my local parking lot track.

i havent raced 19T in a long long time.... robert might be able to answer that question better than me.

OK yep gotcha, but does that apply for the throttle frequencies aswell, should the throttle frequency in the text file match the graph produced in the vfs software

Is this true guys that the lower the frequency the more punch you're gonna have but you have to watch the motor temps? -JB

The text file will be off by one. For example; Frequency 1 will show 0 as a text file, 2=1, and so on.

JB...dont you race indoors? i wouldnt worry about temps too much. if you race outdoors it'll be more of a problem. lower frequencies will require more maintenance on your motor also try putting a fan on your motor (reedy heatsink/fan combo).

Yeah I run indoors exclusively now. I have the heatsink/fan combo and it's working pretty good in line w/ the MMM Cooler but I'm looking to get a bit more rip outta my motors ...
