BlackArt R8c & AMR12

I had the only BlackArt R10 in vegas, and it was plenty quick in the infield.

I've had very good results with the Parma EE body but it is a bit heavier.

After racing 1/12th from 1986 to 1990 with Associted RC12i and RC12L and from 2000 til 2002 with an Associated RC12L3 I got a NIB RC12R5.1 to start again! Unfortunately I do not have the inline conversion yet. I am in the prozess of getting it, but its not available here in the heart of good old Europe yet. So I would like to use the time until the conversion arrives to order some TQ 16 Gauge wires and some TQ silicone sensor cables for my LRP SXX Version 2 speed control and my LRP X12 Vector Octa 4.0T motor.
Could someone please tell me the lenght needed for the sensor cables for the RC12R5.1 with and without inline conversion so I can test them back to back?
THX!!

Not sure what motor or body he was running but Hebert also used the stock/spec speedo



Anyone know why they chose that speedo over the sxxv2?

For mod 12th it's all about feel, and temp control of the esc.

I think Rick was using the TC Spec.

Hebert likes the SS on (1) which has more rip & top end than the comp on (10)
At least that's how he had it setup at TQ when he was testing, the iic rug had much more grip.

lol...It's already confusing enough with speed controllers and now guys are using the stock/spec for mod (4T)

I give up

What's up with the capacitors. Are they stock and why three sometimes?

Getting my car and servo this weekend then speedo is next

Thank you

No reason to be confused, just have get out there and see what works for you.

Here's the company line.
I also like it due to the smaller packaging.

The all new LRP "Works Team" Tuning Capacitor is great for all hardcore racers! This power capacitor is based on the latest polymer technology and features the lowest possible internal resistance and even more power due to the capacitors being joined together in series. The tuning capacitor is offered in two configurations for 1s (single cell) racing and 2s (two cell) racing.

I'd just stick with the SXX V2 either TC or comp. TC only because of the heat sink. There were plenty of guys using that speedo instead of the stock spec that were plenty fast enough. Ronald Volker, Juho, Hagberg etc.

That is what I originally wanted was a speedo that work with low turns in TC/12th mod so I'll probably get the TC like you suggested SXX V2

How are the canned settings on the TC compared to the spec/stock?

Thanks

I was told the TC and Comp are the same software, only change is the heatsink.
Stock Spec is different.
