Start slow and work up as car handles it...

Make sure you install our cap even if you add additional caps.

Only a few pulls and then give it a rest... These are max setups made for one good pass that cannot be driven back and forth and doing back to back runs or launches.

Lots of ways to go fast, but the sweet spot seems to be 4.0, 4.5, 5.0 motor with low motor timing and some boost and turbo added. Many use silly 2.0 motors or 2.5 motors but hard to get even a 3.5 to really hook up in most cases uinless using Rx8 and dual mode so they are running in sensorless once launched.

Default Torque limit

I know the torque limit is a really good tuning aid but is limiting the torque though out the power band of the motor or just the bottom end?

Anytime you increase throttle it is limiting the torque briefly. It does have the most effect at the bottom end, but is working through out the power band.

No. We have tested it and see no performance or feel advantages with the higher frequencies.

258 is the last supported version for Gen2 esc's. We did release a V272 but never got it ROAR approved so we removed it from Hotwire. For those that really want 272 and do not have to run a ROAR legal software we can still give it to you.

Understood.
I noticed on the hotware download page the previous versions listed but it doesnt appear as those they are downloadable, it would be nice if they were shown as downloadable links to make it easy for someone to rollback should the need arise at any point.

We are not encouraging people to use V272 in Gen2 esc's so it is not posted on the website anymore. You can email [email protected] and we can send you a link to download the older version.

It does change the feel, but you can get the same thing by adding some throttle curve. That is effectively what higher Frequencies do is just move the throttle response so it is mild in the bottom and middle and then catches up quickly in the last 10 to 20% of throttle before full on where there is no frequency.
To be honest we do not think it improves performance, and in fact decreases it at some point due to all the switching losses. It creates a feel and there are better ways to do it in our opinion.

That is pretty much what I need as there is too much torque at the bottom end. If I reduce the torque to about 45% and kill boost and timing the car is driveable but a loose out on the straights due to the torque limiter.

how does the throttle curve reduce the torque output?

hi this what I want to do but I canít get hold of gen 3 Bluetooth programmer in the uk for love nor money.

so could you send screen shot of the profile that would soften the bottom end and give me decent mid and top end

If the ESC gets too hot, you want to have thermal protection active, which could be the reason why you can't unselect it to increase the amount of sampling time available..
