When does the track open back up? I'm ready for SC, but holding off on 2wd buggy for the time being.

Great. I was always faster with no timing. Too much wheelspin coming on to the straight.

For those of you running Tekin speedos, do you experience throttle lag (especially with Futaba radios)? If my SC felt as responsive as my buggy, you'd all be in trouble.

We can still play with timing on the motors (endbell) though, right?

Yes just make sure you don't have software that STILL had more timing. This is the mistake soooooo many people are making , they are simply taking out the boost and still have advanced timing . The software has to have neither adjustment.

Thus NO TIMING and No Boost

Tekins seem like alot of lag without any timing from what I've seen. Haven't seen a fast one yet. But mabye you can experiment with that.

Tekin snuck a little timing into the stock mode of their older software. As long as 2 leds are constantly flashing in "Stock" mode, you should be good to go.


I give up trying to take the lag out of this thing. I'd like to try another radio system, but this is 2 different Futaba radios so far with the same issue. Time to buy an SXX stock spec. For what it's worth, I spoke with Randy Pike and he said this is a Futaba specific issue. Most people compensate by running +EXP, but I have to run A LOT. Somewhere around +20-25% iirc to get it respond as fast as I like. By that point it's really difficult to modulate the throttle.

Speed passion/ lrp and the all mighty M11 or M11x problem solved. And I told you that along time ago.
