Hey Jeremy, I have bought 2 RSX's each time hoping to get a better result. I run Orions but love Tekin stuff in my SC and 1/8 stuff. I guess maybe in the bigger vehicles you dont notice it as much but in my 2WD mod and 4WD mod i run orions because the RSX for lack of a better term feels violent to me. It comes on hard and brakes feel inconsistent at times. I have tried a million (exageration) hotwire settings and could never get that feel to go away. If I was doing something wrong please let me know.

I will PM you next week when I get back in the office my settings. In no way should it be inconsistent or harsh.

I had the same experiences with the gen2. Lots of people say the same thing. I have never met anyone that owned orions r10s and tekin rs/rsx that thought the tekin "feel" was better. Not bashing. Tekin has great customer service and is a solid company. But lacking in the feel department

I've talked to a alot of people about this issue including some REALLY fast guys.....the vast majority that have experience with both products more or less agree wit you, which is what has held me back from spending the money on a RSX!

Mine felt a little aggressive, mainly because I try and run stock buggy as a 2nd class. I deceased my current limiter to 65 and put it in dual mode.

Just puting out some feelers to see how meny people would want the d413 body outta carbon fiber. Mabye 1 piece or 3? I currently make the axial exo body panels in carbon fiber and it holds up extremly well. I also do some for the losi 5ive t bit the light weight electric cars are less abusieve on a lightweight carbon fiber body. With all the carbon on it already it seem to me it could use a body too!!!

Lol I keed I keed!! Looks good but you need to lose the wrap and use expandable wire sheathing. Solder points look good though.

I don't know how big is your receiver is but you seems has a lot room behind the servo for the receiver less long running wires. I will flip the ESC so the solder joints are on the outside. Shorter wires and better flow for the ESC fan.
