Dan it would cost ESC manufactures about 5k to make this change, develope the software with adjustment menues ect, test the software is operating correctly, update documentation and provide the release through there website.

Most likely there would also be additional costs to go through roar approval.

As to the rest of the discussion not all of Australia follows roar on the blinky ESC we are very happy running dynamic timing locally.

[QUOTE=ta04evah;11197332]Dear Sir, while your right to voice your opinion here is a good thing, this thread is not about how "mod is better than stock, blinky, non boosted, blah blah blah"
The discussion within this thread is about whether to, or not allow *fixed* timing on the esc within blinky mode.

If you feel a need to shed tears trying to argue about mod/boost etc is better than everything else, then there is ample threads available to gain sympathy from others that share your view point.


I'm not arguing with anyone I'm just making a point here we have seen thread like this and it's just not going nowhere it's rediculous to argue and demand to change software program for stock racing on blinky mode... Stock now a days is I consider open spec... Everyone will push their equipment and every manufacture will push the boundaries to be ahead of the competition...

It has been that way for at least 20 years, that is racing that is exactly what racing is all about.

I completely agree with your statement

I think the real problem is that,majority of the people that want to be fast either don't have the time to "really" figure out how to get fast or simply cannot grasp what it takes to go fast.

anyone that thinks that additional endbell timing will fix their laptime issue simply doesn't understand capabilities/limits of different motors.

My point exactly guys with better equipment will always be upfront
That's is just stock racing.. Opening a thread like this is pointless.

I had my first State Series win in Stock since 1997 at the last outing. I changed one thing from what I usually do, and that was play with the endbell timing. Previously I'd thought I could just gear the car to whatever the timing was, but I was shocked at how much difference this made.

It has also always been this way, some people will spend the $ to buy the edge. Whilst in the passed it was mostly due to better round cells there was an aspect of new brushes every run.

With a Lipo and blinky ESC it is more a matter of how much you push your motor rather than better equipment.

There are a number of very good ESCs out there which are very cheap. Lipo's are fairly cheap and last for a long time even at the front but motors make a huge difference.
