Default esc algorithms

Do they change with downforce?

Nope. In order for the ESC to change, it would have to be able to sense the downforce.

Boost on the other hand changes ESC timing, but it's programmed to do so at a certain RPM.

It would sense it in the form of load, I would think.

are you talking about adaptive drive frequencies?

what would the benefits be?

Does it already exist(ie punch levels)?

Would depend on how the software was written. It would be possible to have it change the algorithm with load.

depends on what you consider "load"? Are you talking aero load? chassis load? or amperage load?

I was thinking aero load. Just curious if how an esc is written if it would perform better on or off road and with different bodies. By better I mean efficient, I guess.

Looks like different situations would require different applications of of power to the motor to gain maximum efficiency.

I don't think you would consider it "aero" load. We have seen you can write a more aggressive algorithm for some on road applications because of the higher traction available than off road. But its a compromise because only 1 software can be officially approved.

To answer another post, our system does slightly adapt throttle frequency if it defects that the setting is "too far" our of range it determines as needed for efficiency. I can't speak for others, but I know ours does.
