has anyone done back to back comparison with the tekin rs in 17.5 blinky and what are your thoughts???
Having run both..I like the LRP....Easy and it does keep up with the Tekins...
Takes a bit to get right, at least you do not need a computer...
Nice and smooth to drive, were as the Tekin seems to be very aggressive..
Brilliant consistant braking with the LRP..
I run on a large, out door gas track, against Tekins, Hobby Wings, Novak's...Alls good....
Last race day..
In a final race..The top 4 cars were 1 second behind each other..
ESC positions were..
Lrp.(me). very close, tight racing.
On another note..Used the X12-17.5, 3 dot insert...at FDR of 4.7..22.214.171.124.
Used a D3...after much trying, took it slowly..ended up at roughly the same as the X12, which is 4.8 fdr, 8deg + timing on can (2 notches),will increas slowly if I need to..
126.96.36.199, when I went to 11 in mode 3..it was very, I mean patheticaly slow
Checked the "blinks" just to make sure.....Put back to 10...and soooo much better, 9 in mode 3 no good, no top end........and roughly the same temps and runs/feels pretty well the same as the X12????? Will have a better idea come race day.
Dumps at 4.30, same as X12. using the New "LRP FAT COBRAS" and the New REVTECH'S.....
The FAT COBRAS are better than the revtech's..way more initial punch...
