Default WGT DUO3 13.5 iN BLINKY MODE

Plan to run in the IIC in WGT class with a 13.5 duo 3 in blinky looking for rollout and timing for the motor.

what are your current temps? I run a 100 by 38 foot track every week with an 80mm rollout and my temps never go above 150. Hope this helps!

Default temps

motor was very cool came off at 33c after 6 minute run. Might try uping the timing and rollout next test session.
Need to ge this sorted for Vegas IIC but guess there will be some advice there if in trouble.

I had accidentally turned off the timing boost in my WGT 13.5 and I was able to drive the track in WOT and almost won but came in second by 3 or 4 seconds. My roll out was 65mm.

Run a 3.5 fdr with full timing in motor you should be happy with it

That rollout sounds kinda low to me, i could be wrong, But it also sounds like you could gear up a good bit.

That rollout was good enough to get the track record for fast lap, most laps in a main and first place for the winter series. Mind you that it was worked out for a timing boosted ESC with turbo. If I was racing blinky the rollout would be about 75 - 80.
