I have a Tekin Rs /8.5ss Novak and I am usually at 3 lights on the
ESC and around 140 on the motor. My gearing is 20/90....by the gearing
calc I am 16.47 undergeared, but the gearing calc does not take into
account any advanced timming or boost timming. Which I have been
told can change your FDR.

I will say that it is fast enough...but at the same time it could be
faster. I am slowly getting it fine tunned..

What size motor do you run........Timming, is it a end bell adjustment
along with some ESC advanced timming. That can really heat up a ESC.

Also does your have a "current" limiter...I got mine down to 96% which does
not affect performance just how much "overflow" of juice is not used by the motor and turned into heat.

You could try to re-set the setting's to default and see what temp's you are getting. I did it that way. Then slowly tune it from thier.

Check out the Robinson pinions. 1 thing I noticed was the pinions purchased individually aren't as noisy as the ones in sets (15-25, 16-26) I don't have the 14t but the 15t,16t runs fine. Glad to be of some help!

I'm not sure. But I think the 32p spur is too tall and won't fit inside the gear cover; I think the 32p is for the 4x4.

I think they will tear up your spur using the 32p....could be
wrong though.
