If you have your punch settings set at 1 then you would basically not be using the punch control function ? The higher the number the less the punch the motor will have ?

That's what i've heard and a few are doing. Check out the v3.1 it has extra seals for keeping the dust out and a total aluminium heatsink.

1 is either off or the lowest setting. The higher the number the more punch.

Hey, my apologies if this is a stupid question but I'm not clear on the effects of timing on my SCT Pro Esc + 3656SD motor. I've searched the forum but I haven't been able to find the info I need.

Does the timing influence the torque ? (I've read conflicting stories bu I'm inclined to believe that electronig timing on the ESC shouldn't influence Torque)
Am I correct in thinking that if I don't need more speed, I can best use Timing setting 0 on my Losi SCTE as the timing won't influence torque at all ?

timing increases rpm and decreases torque. in 4-poles it's better to put timing to zero or when gearing doesn't help anymore a little.

So zero timing punch 3-6 and pinion 14-15 or even 16 on BIG track on a SCTE. I have it on 5 usually and 14 indoors 15 out.

Are you sure about the torque decrease ?
The way I understood it is that mechanical timing decreases torque, but electronic timing doesn't because the timing is applied proportionally with the rpm's (so no timing when still (thus no torque change), max timing at max rpm)...
But I've read a lot of conflicting things about this (I can imagine this behaviour could also be Esc specific).

Basically it's either or. Do you wan't that the rotor moves faster or slower. In other esc's you can specify rpm ranges where you want to do either.

I am going to be getting my xerun 150amp esc and the 4168 sensored motor for my 1/8 this Friday. Any of you guys running this setup that can give me pointers on settings your running?

Thanx!

I'm running the SCT PRO ESC and a 4274 sensored motor. Amazingly smooth and the power is great. I don't think you'll be the least bit disappointed with it. Enjoy!

Having a problem with my Xerun 60a 2.1. Running a D3 and it seems to only be getting 25 percent power. Tried differnt profiles and what not still no change. Hooked the motor up to a friends Tekin and it woked like it should so I know the motor is good. Any idea where to start with this? Using a Spektrum DX2.0 and I did calibrate the esc/tx.

Make sure your radio end points are turned up all the way first, then calibrate the radio to the speed control.

If you are running sensored
Disconnect the sensor cable and reboot the ESC and see what it does.
