Requesting advice on Transmitter setup added: 23.11.2017

Category: General     Views: 586     Rating:    


Hi guys, I have been a VRC pro user for a few years but have all ways been wondering if maybe there is some tips for setting up a transmitter?

I use zero expos which i like as i don't like when turning that the rate changes in comparison to the physical steering dial but do find it twitchy when making small adjustments. Have not really seen any one providing any advice in the youtubes or forums but maybe I'm not searching for the right things.

Anyone willing to offer what they are using expos/dead zones/saturation etc..

Thanks for the help in advance for anyone that reply

Hi, Warren is right, and you need to test on track. Once you have a track where you can't improve anymore, you can try to change expo.
Sometimes, it helps when you need the car to turn "more" quickly than you can do with your transmitter, and after some changes, I ended improving lots of laps with positive expo on tracks with lots of steering change.

The more expo you add, the harder it will look to drive at first, but you can definitively run faster.


Thanks Fred, very helpful advice :)

The physical steering and throttle output may not be linear with your transmitter input in the first place.

So, set your expos on the radio until the steering and throttle response feels as linear as possible to you.

If you want, you can adjust it more one way or the other to improve your driving performance (if totally linear isn't your thing). Whatever it takes!


Great advice Warren, I had no idea that was what I wanted feels like I have an understanding now of why expos are used.
