Thanks for that.
Does anyone mess with a custom throttle curve, or just keep it linear?

Default Throttle input curve on the V3

I would like to know what changing the throttle input curve to "Custom" would do ?? I run it in linear at the moment. Im running 17.5 blinky class in touring car

I just saw that Paul Lemieux is now with Hobby Wing. This is pretty cool and just helped me make my choice on what ESC to buy. I am thinking of playing with electric and was trying to make a choice with all the brands out there. I know Paul is a great guy and very helpful, so it is Hobby Wing for me!!

Hi guys

I have been using the v3.1 for sometime now and used to race stock I have moved to modified and I'm finding the speedo to be very punchy. Has anyone got any tips to smooth out this feeling I'm running a 4.5 on quite technical track with the speedo set in the mod settings any advice tips will be greatly

It's two things...

1) 4.5 motors are 10000000x punchier than a 17.5 motor. You've still got "stock finger." Believe me, figuring out your throttle finger is going to be the biggest change.

2) Set your throttle point to 50% and then set both stage 1 and stage 2 punch down to the single digits. It'll help A LOT. Doing so will lessen the amount of punch.

Also, try running in blinky before anything else. If it's a technical track, boost might not even help until you really learn your car.

Thanks for the replys guys.
I will email cobraracing ASAP and also thanks for the advise in regards to the punch settings and finger control. I should have said this is in Tc as I have always raced mod in off road. So I can definitely say it doesn't feel right.

Thanks again

What motor and gearing? With 4.5 I basically run no boost and low punch most of the time, only when the grip is mega do I find boost gives a faster lap time

“Linear”This is where the forward throttle position of the transmitter directly relates to the forward throttle position into the ESC.

“Custom” – This allows for a multi-step setting to the forward throttle. This differs from exponential on the transmitter, in that the forward throttle input into the ESC can be defined in multiple increasing steps.

Thanks for the reply, If I set it to custom can I program it to my own settings ?
