I think you can easily go to 30 timing on the motor.... If you already have the spool,you'll need the losi lcd drives...You'll also need to Check your rear diff for slippage: if you hold the spur gear and One tire, you should not be able to spin the other tire easily... After that, it's boost time....

Thanks for all the info guys. If I turn up the timing on the motor, is that the same as tuning the speedo if I'm going to put the timing back where it was once I start tuning the esc or no?

Ok so if I hold the tire and spur and turn the other wheel, it should turn but feel tight right?

Nevermind, just checked the rear and it's damn tight. Can't even hardly move the other wheel.

here is a link to a boosted setup

the losi part number for the LCD will be found on Horizon Hobby, but has been discontinued

Ahhhh ok I see them. Looks like slightly shorter cvd arms with those couplings. When you say "boost", is that the same as advancing the timing or is that in addition to/different?

"boost" is essentially adding electrical timing in conjunction with mechanical motor timing at a set motor rpm. An electrical super charger of sorts is the easiest way for me to describe it.

Pretty cool stuff. Someone earlier mentioned if I boost it, to lower the timing back down ok the motor. ???

Hey 303slowdown, if I boost thru the esc, I should move the motor timing back down to where it was? Is there any way to do both safely or is it counterproductive?

Are you just doing speed runs or are you racing?

You shouldn't have to worry too much about the motor temps. I'd be more worried about that RSPro on a 5.5 boosted motor. That sucker is gonna get hot very quickly. It's one of the reasons almost nobody runs boosted RS pros in the modified class. They just can't handle lower turn boosted motors.

What if I just advance the timing on the motor? What effect will that have on the esc and motor?

And all I do is street/parking lot runs. No organized racing. I guess it's more of just a drag car that I'm looking to get as fast as I can.
