I switched over to this setup station from my old one....I like it cause its less space, and alot quicker to put together. Its great so far.

I also got the new pit light, setup board, and stand.....all good quality and less space in my pit bag.

I highly recommend these products if you are looking for simplicity and less space. I will post a pic of my pit area with my new products.

Default TS 160 Firmware Upgrade

Hello,
How can we perform the firmware upgrade to the TS-160 ESC, using the wifi module and a smartphone?
Thanks in advance,

WiFi support is not designed for the TS160 that I have seen. The smartphone app can be used to changes settings on the esc's (TS120's, TS90). The to connect to PC to update firmware.

Hello and thanks for your reply.
Where is the procedure for the firmware upgrade described, for the compatible units?

The O-rings on my setup cracked and broke apart. Can't get an accurate measurement on them. Do you happen to what size they are?

What are the differences between the two motors? One is a higher kv, the other more torque biased? Is the difference just in the 12.3mm vs 12.5mm rotor, or do they have different stators, too?
Also what are the weights on the 13.5t and 17.5t motors?
I'm interested in trying one of these motors, but would like a bit more info to help me with my decision.
Thanks!

They never gave us the weight information - will have to look into that for you.

As for the differences - the Super Extreme is a complete new designed looking to match the higher RPM output that is being designed into many spec class motors now a days. Also the motor was designed around possibility of using higher timing settings on the can, another thing popular with newer motors of this class.

Thank you for the reply. I am currently using Trinity D4ss motors in my 17.5 stock touring car and 13.5 12th stock car, and am looking to try something different without adding weight if possible.
