Trying to do an 1/8th conversion and still looking for information. I'd like to get the RX8 in the near future but don't have the funds right now. What size BEC would I need with an RS Pro and 3s/4s? Also can I get away with running a 6.5 motor with this setup?

Yeah you can run the 6.5 on that setup. I'd recomend a BEC that can at least put out 5 amps or so. There are quite a few good bec's out there for less than $25.

anyone have a good setup for a tekin rs/ novak 6.5 velociti motor in a T4? Timing and gearing would be helpful for a large 1/8 scale track.

Try running dual mode with 70 on the timing bar. Gearing would depend on the track demensions but I'd toss out 87/23 pretty easy.

Thursday. I've pushed the idea about some "limited edition" motors. Mo would certainly be on the list...

Nope, no need for a diode. It won't hurt anything but it's not needed on our FX line.

Hi guys, I have been running a FX Pro in my 1/12th car for a little under a year now with no snags. I was using it at the local track the other day and half way through a run (19t 1/12th) it stopped working. The car was going down the main straight when it just stopped! If you hold the car in your hand and put the throttle on, the motor tries to rotate, but does n't. I took the motor out and tried another one, and it does the same, so it's not down to the motor, it is the speedo. The speedo was not hot at all so did not shut down. I did also try to do a reset but it is still the same. So guys, any ideas??! Thanks vary much for your help, I really want the speedo to work again as I think it's probably the best unit I have used, apart from the Tekin keypad speedo that I had many years ago!! Cheers, Chris.
