RC Tip Of the Week (brought to you by Colin)

Main Topic:

 

In my experience start with one of the preloaded tunes. Believe it or not Colin Branch and I made hundreds of hits trying to find a solid STARTING point to build from. 

I am also a fan for first time hits to remove all turbo to keep things less complicated. 

 

After that you have a few ways to go. You can begin increasing the first stage until you are spinning too hard on the hit or wheeling excessively. 

Next I would begin shortening my stage delays in small amounts watching the data log and video for wheel spin. 

Once I have tightened up my stages and got my first stage as high as feels solid for the car on the launch I will add the turbo. 

For turbo I start with it at 100 percent throttle position and .1-.2 delay giving my battery pack a tiny bit more time to recover voltage before I start pouring in turbo timing. I use all 60 degrees and control it’s input from the slew. Start out with a very low slew like 2-4 and increase it every run as the data and mph allow. From there you can begin bringing the turbo in sooner, maybe go from starting the turbo at 100 to starting it at 90 

Data from the logger, a GNSS and video are the tools for all these adjustments and if I was to give you a general rule for tuning it would be 

 

1. Make small single adjustments

2. Make 60 foot hits the majority of your runs when testing. 

3. Make 2-3 hits on an adjustment before determining if it helped or not. 

4. When making adjustments and things like et or mph are increasing like you want the second they don’t you have hit the wall it’s best to back it off a tiny bit and you’ll have a solid car.
