How to setup your mod motor for easy driving
 
Hey,

So I've recently upgraded to a 6.5 mod motor from a 7.5 that had a total of 85 degrees is turbo (ESC and can combined). So now I'm trying to get all the timing set properly.

I'm thinking that the way to make the faster motor easier to drive through the infield is to set the timing on the can to zero and the esc timing to around 40. But the key to this setup is the zero timing.

How are you determining the easiest esc setting to drive?

Maybe time for some dyno experiments...

How do you determine or how do you adjust?

I determine it by planning what lap time I want. Then I measure the distance of the lap and convert to feet per second. I then set the gearing to make that happen based on the rpms I want the motor at.

the timing is based on the rpm i select, efficiency or power are the 2 points in the motor that guide my selection based on heat concerns.

if its too fast I change my throttle end point or I do a throttle curve that is concave,

what are you running ? on road? off road? 2wd?4wd? 1/12th scale pan car ?1/10th pan car? carpet? asphalt? small track ? big track?high traction? low traction?

I always plan my lap times out to be the same as maifield's, but it never works. I guess I must be doing something wrong.

Have you tried smashing your radio? Maybe that's the step you're missing....

If you are driving on medium-low traction turning down the punch/torque setting on the esc can help make it easier to drive.

Reducing the neutral width and increasing the ‘minimal throttle’ can help give some more sensitivity at the lower end of the throttle. This can also help with control on the higher end.
