Default Tekin RS Brushed Running

I'm using a Tekin Rs esc for silvercan racing. I have it wired in the 2 wire for forward/reverse but heard it may be better/more power wired in the forward only method,can anyone comment?

I also run 20T brushed.

I assume timing advance does nothing in brushed mode?

You are correct. Also there is no difference in forward speed with reverse enabled

Feels like it's lacking a bit of top speed,for some reason? Indicating top speed on the esc.Any ideas?

Actually wired up in fwd only would give you less on resistance.

While at full throttle are all led's on and flashing?

So fwd only would be quicker?
Yes at full throttle all leds on and flashing.
Can't knock the esc,excellent and smooth but seems a little slower top speed than my cheap brushed esc.

Just on a side note, it's set for fwd/rev/delay using a hotwire and latest software but seems like instant reverse to me.Not that bothered as i very rarely use reverse but thought i would add that.

Randy just had a thought , i have a wire soldered to terminal B for when i run a brushless setup . The wire is not connected to anything ,i've just insulated the bare wire and secured it,would that make any difference?
Also i'm running in "Dual Drive" mode not "Sensored" again any difference?

Well , plugged in hotwire switch settings to fwd/rev(no delay) and now i have a delay! Also switch on sensored and turned up timing/turbo just incase.
Tested on the bench and it "seems" a tad faster but hard to tell.Will let you know after racing!

If you're running the RS Brushed none of the timing factors are utilized, period.

Could there be a difference in top speed between fwd/rev and fwd/rev delay as it does "seem" a tad quicker with the delay activated,although it is labeled wrong in the software.
