Thank you brew99. I appreciate your help. I think the fan was bad. We replaced it last night and plan to test this weekend. My son did in error, reverse the battery wires. We will replace the caps. The esc is set at 105. Our highest temp was 99c. Thanks.

I run turbo and boost in mod 4wd buggy and it is very smooth, you just have to know what to adjust things at. I posted my settings a few pages back.

I agree it can be done very well, but for me I have not found a need to use the turbo and boost settings in a modifed class. If I need more motor I prefer to go down in turns. I prefer the feeling of an unboosted setup myself. Now if I was at a really huge track and needed a little more top end, I could see where I may add some for a little when I need itl

Try adjusting the boost slope on the engage and disengage to a low #, the lower the # the smoother it feels.

If you want more control over your boost settings, you could back your firmware down to previous version if you like.

Default Firmware History

Many have messaged me about firmware updates and changes. I have a link below to the ESC Car Firmware history if you want to see what has changed and been updated from version to version.

Happy Reading:

Default This is really a matter of personal preference.

This is a matter of personal preference, You can get boost and Timing Profiles very smooth if set up correctly, but especially on 2WD buggy I prefer no timing setups and just adjust Gearing, Motor Turn & Endbell timing. I feel this gives me the best overall feel and to know what the power is always going to do everywhere on the track. Especially if you are on medium to low grip surface.

Good Luck!

What is the advantage of the "Boost Controlled by Throttle" setting for v3.1?

IMO none, at least not in offroad. Example you have your boost setting at 30 so at half throttle boost would be 15. IMO it doesn't give it a smooth feel like setting by rpm.
