Running it with a 27t Monster, XXX Brushed, Red/green springs, on 20 and 18t pinions, depending on track. Still works fine

But, thats a moot point now, as the TEU-101BK is sitting in my TA03FS, as the mini is awaiting it's exige brushless

When I installed my Exige system in my M03 I ran into a few problems. First the engine screws are too long. If you screw them in all the way the motor doesn't spin. To fix this I ran about 5mm shock spacer on the screws.

The other item and I am hoping someone can help me here. When I hooked the system up it ran in reverse. Should I switch the polarity and run the positive to the negative??? What is the fix?

Yes, you should switch the red and black wire. black to red and red to black.
Right now u prob have faster reverse than forward.
After switching cables will be fine.

Try RCBOYZ. They have some Mini stuff and at a decent price. But like everyone else not a complete stock.

I know its nothing highly important but i finished putting a set of nitro RS4 2 shocks on the mini last night. They fit perfectly on the car and just looking at pictures look very similar to the mini CVA shocks

Default HELP!!! Exige beeps continuously

I just installed SP Exige, the motor beeps continuously and it does throttle or reverse. I bought SP 11.5R, and it is still the same. If my new Exige toast? The manual doesn't say anything about continuous beeps.

Please help, I'm running nuts.

Hi, I had the same problem earlier tonight (newly installed SP Exige)

Re-programmed Exige using DNA seup unit (Thanks Calvin!) however, this did not fix problem.

Finally fixed problem by selecting another 'model' on my radio (an unused one) This forced radio to default settings. Turned on Radio, full throttle, turned on Exige...beep once or twice, released throttle...then throttle again, motor spun Ok, all seems ok now...and no more continous beeps!

I think that perhaps EPA's and all settings must be set back to default or maximum etc....in any case, this worked for me...hope it helps.

Cheers,
Carl
