Does Tekin have; or working on; a rotor specific to 1S for the redline motors?

Try gearing it 24/87ish. Check out Randy's setup: Randy Pike XXXSCT 17.5 v212
I am now at 26/78 on the Losi SCT, castle sidewinder, 17.5 (must keep this motor as that's STOCK at our track) and 16% boost 130 degree motor temps, in 90 degree air. Still getting about 75% of the straightline speed as the competitors. I'm the only Losi out there.

Do I keep pursuing gearing....higher pinion and lower spur???? I think I'm at the end of my options, as Losi doesn't have other gearing options.

Help!

Why are you at 16% boost?

Chris, The closest thing they have is a 12.3 mm rotor. There isn't a 1s only rotor.

I asked this last November.

No reason other than trying to get some more speed out of it

Default RX8 ESC and Included Fan

Is the RX8 fan supposed to spin when power is applied, or only spin up at a pre-determined ESC temperature?

The Rx8 fan comes on at 140f, and off at 120f. It will also come on during programming and if the Rx8 is ever unplugged from the receiver and powered on.

Default ESC Setting

I just installed a RS Pro 17.5 combo in my sc10. I am trying to find out what pinio gear I need with a 78 spur and also what settings I need to put in the ESc for blinky mode and boosted. How much timing can I run in the motor in the blinky mode?

Thanks

I think he's asking why are you only at 16?
