Default Bad ESC

Hey guys, I was at my lhs today not planning on buying anything but the Sales Manager made me a deal on a brand new TC4. I bought it plus a few spares and a new body for my wife. I got home and started painting the body. While it was drying I decided to run the car in the driveway. I hooked up a 5000 mah 6 cell up to it and it ran great for about 5 minutes. All of a sudden it stopped and I walked over to it and saw smoked puring out the esc. Upon a closer look, there is a hole melted in the side of the esc and the smell of burnt plastic. I plan on calling customer support on Monday.

I wanted to know if anyone else has ever had this problem??? The esc is an XP Digital SC200 if that helps.

i can be emailed with setup sheets

Jamie

The 2 are completely different.

The Tc5 is a belt drive, Tc4 a shaft. While theres people that will swear by the tc4, i'd say the tc5 is the way to go for sedan racing, but i guess its up to your opinion.

LRP Stock Spec motors are REALLY nice. They are also a bit shorter in overall length, making for a nice fit in a Tc3 or Tc4 chassis.

I had some Speed Passion motors, but after comparing them to the build quality of the LRP... The LRP motors also have a great amount of braking, very similar to brushed motors.

The Tekin RS speedo seems dominant, although i havent ran my Tekin yet (just got it). I was using a KO VFS-1.5 speedo... and although it is an awesome piece of hardware... the KO software needs tweaking to keep up with the Tekin speedo. The Tekin laptop interface (Hotwire) makes the interface for the KO VFS look like some 5th grade garbage.

Cliff Notes:

Tekin RS/RS Pro= small footprint, easy programming, FREE software updating, and the Hotwire laptop interface is REALLY nice... both in build quality and functionality. Oh yeah, and the Vegas 203 software for Hotwire has the turbo feature that is killing the KO.

KO VFS-1= quality product, smallish footprint, FREE software updating (still no turbo update tho), but the laptop interface is ghetto and costs twice as much as the Tekin Hotwire.

well I ordered it and tryed it last night, seems like it had more steering on power going into a corner, but when I let off power it would push. Dident last too long, it broke my front cvd's. But overall my laps were faster then with a diff. Just have to find stronger front cvd's.

You need the thick blue aluminum FT CVD's for the Tc4. Scroll through parts available on www.towerhobbies.com. They still sell a plethora of parts for the Tc3/4.

There were some blue bones that came out for the Tc3 that were much skinnier than what came out for the Tc4. Both parts physically interchange, so i think thats why the second website says they are for Tc3/Tc4. The skinny bones WILL bend.

You need the thicker HD blue aluminum bones for the Tc4.
