thanks! for the info... i made sure my iron was at its peak and i think it took about 10 or 12 seconds to pull the power wires off...

Looks like Stormer is one of the few I could find that has them in stock:

I have a 6 month old RS Pro that I damaged the receiver plug on yesterday. I have a generic replacement, but it's smaller than the factory piece, so it fits loosely in the receiver.

Do you guys sell a replacement plug?

I completely missed your post, sorry about that. We do have replacement plugs if you still need any, just contact support@teamtekin.com. There is no part number but we do have spares.

What's the general turn around time for servicing brushless esc? As for the older escs like the brushed ones, does Tekin still service them?

We quote 7-10 business days but the average is less than 5 days here. We still service the FX series and the G11 series brushed ESCs. Anything pre-G11 is a legacy product and we don't offer service them due to lack of available parts.

Does the Tekin 17.5 run with the castle sidewinder ESC? I installed my new tekin, and seem to have about 1/2 the power I should. Slow as a snail. Checked the esc and transmitter, and all settings are on full. Help!

It should be fine, do you have any "cheat" in the ESC? Timing? What car do you have it in and where is it geared?

Stock Gear in the Losi xxx-sct. 16/88. What are your thoughts on what it should be for 2x4. I'm guessing a whole lot bigger on the Pinion. Also, with the Sidewinder, I'm running it sensorless....does that matter?

Yep, you need a smaller spur and a bigger pinion, it's WAY undergeared. Pair that up with being sensorless (no timing boost or anything) it's going to really be slow. You need to run a sensored ESC and boost it to get the speed.

Try gearing it 24/87ish. Check out Randy's setup: Randy Pike XXXSCT 17.5 v212

I have a redline motor that the mounting screw holes are stripped out, I see Stormer lists a replacement endbell kit but is out of stock. Where can I get this kit; or just the front alum piece that the holes are stripped; from?

Thanks
Chris
