Thanks

Sorry for the delay Jim, been out of town for several days. Are you running boosted or not boosted? Probably around a 26-28/84 for boosted. Or a 30-33/75 non-boosted. That should get you to a good starting point. You'll be looking for temps around 130-145* after any length run.

It didn't look like your question ever got fully addressed. For boosted 17.5 on that small track you'll probably be wanting to start with pre-set profile #4 and 29/76 (stock spur) gearing. Let us know if you need more tuning help!

Got to run my new 4.5 550 Viper VST-XL motor this weekend...only got a few runs in as I had to leave. I would say this motor is nearly as powerful as the Tekin but as smooth as a Novak...what a great balance. I cant wait to get more running on this thing.

Looking for a little VTX10/13.5 setup help. I think I'm getting close, but a push in the right direction couldn't hurt.

Running a Losi XXX-SCT w/ a VTX10 and Viper 13.5, no boost or timing on the esc..
I cant remember all the settings (at work), but throttle PPM is at 8k and motor timing is untouched from the box (40*?).

Right now I'm geared 76/28. ESC temp is 110* and motor is 160*.
Overall punch seems good, but it may be lacking a bit on the top end?

Weylin, you know the 1/10 track at ARCOR in Albuquerque.

Any tips?

Thanks

By "lacking a little top end", he means that my rig with a tekin rs pro boosted 40, and timed 40, pushing an orion 13.5, pulled away from his non-boosted and non-timing advanced viper stuff about a total of two inches on a 150 ft straight. He's crazy, ignore him.

sounds to me he needs to gear down a tooth or three and BOOST it

No boost allowed, thanks though.

You may try increasing the throttle PWM to 12,000hz and see if that improves it at all. May give you a little more top end and also drop the motor temp.

If what lowroad said below is true than it sounds like your non-boosted setup is running very strong and you don't need to change anything.

here is my sc10 4x4 with the viper vtx10r. i had my first race with it on sat, i love the speedo. very easy to tune and make changes. it felt a little slow on sat. i was able to make the changes to the speedo to bring a little more from it without being to much. i pulled a 4th place finish out of 15 from a first lap tangle with a few other trucks. i would be a driver for viper anyday. lol

What motor and ESC you guys recommending for the SC10 4wd? Various outdoor tracks with generally loamy surfaces.

5.5 with vtx10r is the ticket! boost a little bit for bigger tracks.
