Willy, I race today. I'll let you know how the MM w/ Novak 13.5SS in a TC works with new firmware compared to old.

Bad news. If anything, it is worse at starting. I'm going to try different starting powers, but I don't have hope. I'm tempted to go back to the old firmware.

The Novak one is for what ever reason one of the harder ones to get to work. The Trinity Duo is suppose to work great. Hope to be testing one soon.

If you go to the Castle site you can downlong Castle Link (it is version 3.04 the newest one as the older one is 3.01) When you uplink you Mamba Max to the new 3.04 it will ask you if you want to update the software to the newest version for the speedo which is 1.17 (old one is 1.16)

I tried the proto type Sidewinder I had with the software in and it did hesitate but the Production version Sidewinders have updated software over the prototype I had so it could be better. I want to try it again with my Orion 13.5 but not sure when I can make it to the track to run touring cars but when I do I will more than likely just use my Mamba Max as I updated all the software and I will have my laptop with me so I can try all kinds of stuff a little quicker than I can with my Sidewinder at this time. It will only take seconds to change start power and timing postions and see what effects I get.

The track I test at I don't get much time onc I get their and its two plus hours away. Might be a few weeks til I can make it back.

Thanks for the info. I hope to have a Feigao 13.5 to try next week with the MM.

Cheers

We found a small problem (I think) with a friends Mamba Max after updating to the new firmware (1.17). The only change was the firmware update, we made no other adjustments.

With the car switched on and just sitting on the ground it makes a low beep sound randomly 15 - 30 seconds between beeps and the yellow light flashes at the same time. It doesnt seem to cause any problem when driving. The beep and flash never happened with the previous version of the firmware (1.09). We changed the firmware back to 1.09 again on Sunday just to confirm that it was the firmware change that made it happen and the beep and flash went away.

The vehicle is a Losi MF2 with the Mamba Max 5700, 4200 packs and a 2PL radio. I dont have the settings as we were using my friends laptop.

The beep and yellow light doesnt seem to cause a problem, its just a little annoying random beep and flash and we dont know what it means.

Anyone have a suggestion?

Not a problem...it was intentional. It's to remind you to unplug your battery pack.

As far as what? You looking where to set up end points on the radio or what setting you should try on the Castle Link?

What car are you running and what motor are you going to use will also be needed to get you better info.
