Email Hotbodies about the Hara edition speedo. It's the same thing. It's not posted anywhere online from what I have found.

I will be posting a scan copy as soon a I get home. I don't really understand why it such a big deal to include a english version on the KO site.

It is but it isn't. If you read back a fex posts ago, I asked the same question. The answer is that it is physically the same speed control except it has Hara's mod profile. So you're basically buying it for the preloaded profile on the Hara Twister. Otherwise if you wish to programm your own then you should consider the VFS-1 Super with the programming device included. Last I saw at my LHS it was $200 which is quite a good deal.

or you can just buy the cable for a lot less money. You can adjust everything from your computer. It's really easy for me as I have a laptop that I take to the track. I will be getting the cable soon but for now, the loaded profile works. I've only used the speedo off-road so far but I expect it will be even better on road.

Hi all would the factory setting for a Hara Twister 2 be no good to run with a 27t stock motor on a track that is quite tight and technical?

I have the adaptor but never tried changing it ... I guess it is easy? Can you store the current settings if you want to put them back?

Also if I change this then will I need to adjust my gearing from what I have been running at a particular track?

acutts:
the default profile on the Hara Twister 2.0 is designed for a modified motor. you can run it with your 27T but it might feel flat (lacking punch/torque). it is pretty easy to download the profile from your esc to your handheld adapter and save it there for later use. go to www.kopropo.com and go to the VFS help center for some profiles for 27T.

for now.. keep your gearing the same (at least for the first run) that way you'll notice the difference and see where you need to adjust. good luck!

if you're in the US... send it in and Robert will be able to give you an estimate of the damage done.

i burned my VFS-1 a few months back..and the FETs were toasted. the actual board was still good. Robert replaced the FETs and i was back up and running.
