Syn with a 12th scale??? Wow I have been out for a while!! lol
I never thought I would see the day.
Great job!!! (but I think one of the shrink tubes is .20mm longer than the other two. Better get that fixed. )

Your car looks great! However you should not put heat shrink on the posts of a tekin, it is the only way of heat disipation that speedo has.

Yeah, that ESC will burn if you don't take that heat shrink off from those posts.

The only reason those posts are like that is so when you solder them you don't fry the printed circuit board. Heat shrink those wires all you want bro! Especially the battery wires. The only thing that gets warm is the FET's. Even then only if you run mod. Those last two posts are irrelevant and not good advise.

Hi all,
compliments to all your car because they are the most beautiful and cleanest I ever seen.
But there are some radio problems putting the receiver between servo and esc?

Tekin's design for keeping the ESC small is to use the posts (and by extension your copper wires) as a direct heat sink. The posts are directly connected to the FET transistors of the ESC, so they can remove heat the fastest and they get airflow over them in normal use. No, they aren't there to keep you from burining the board as you won't burn anything at the temps your iron will get to, it's there to disapate heat. Go ahead and heatshrink them up, I'm not your boss, and you'll probably get away with it in stock racing, but do know that Tekin refuses warranty claims on ESC's that arrive with heat shrink on the posts.

WRONG....you will not hurt the board soldering directly to it. The post ARE heat-sinks and while you MAY not hurt it at slower speeds where the ESC does not build up heat you will hurt it's efficiency, and in mod you will greatly shorten the lifespan of the ESC. Ultimately it is up to the user, does cosmetic appearance mean more than proper design function.

This wasnt meant to start a debate though the comments and feedback are welcome

I have run boosted 17.5 for a couple of years now and have never had a problem with ESC heat. I'll take your word for it regarding the Tekin design however since seeing an ESC come loose and short out in a crash I take the extra precaution of minimising the amount of exposed wiring on any of my cars.

Regards,

Simon
