Default Taking timing out of a Tekin RS esc

In stock truck class, new rules are I can not run a esc with boost or timing. If I take all the boost and timing out of a tekin rs, two things. One, how will the performance compare to a esc designed with no timing, example, LRP SPX Zero. And second, is there any way to tell if there is no timing or boostin the esc once I turn it on (flashing lights or something).

If you have 212 installed it has a no timing profile just like the other speedo you mentioned.

If you are on software 2.08 or later the center led will flash when in neutral and the ESC is in Spec mode. Tekin has some information about it on their support forum. If you don't have their Hotwire I'm not sure how to know what software version you have. A quick trip over to the TeamTekin site will probably answer the rest of your questions.

Glad to see More tracks Forcing the No ESC Timing/Boost in Stock Classes. Stock is suppose to be stock not a 17.5 w "Nitrous" - IMO Stock+Boost = Cheaters.

I agree, but for me personally, thank God that there is a mod class. I like my "nitrous" 13.5 Blitz.

v212 on Tekin RS spec mode has zero timing in it.(led's 3 and 5 flashing @ neutral will indicate you are in spec mode)

v208 was dis-approved by ROAR as it supposedly had 9 of timing in the spec mode.....dont run 208.

I run 212/RS in a xxxCR and I have the fastest car at the track. I am geared correctly, I am running the right tires and my motors and batteries are fresh.....I run a 65c TP pack for extra punch that is greatly needed in stock racing....go with 212 spec mode, plenty fast and it's a really smooth profile too.

Settting the Rs with 212 into the "spec" mode is as simple as selecting Timing Profile 1 on the onboard interface,done.

Randy, I never actually ran 208 as I just got going with Tekin's line. I was simply told that mumbo jumbo about 208/ROAR, my sincere apologies If I was mistaken. Very happy with my Tekin's though, DIALED!

Its not cheating if its allowed. Because one does not have boost or turbo does not mean others with it are cheaters.


It is great that our ESC allow us to have multi purpose ESCs. Mod, spec stock supped up stock .

then it might as well be Super Stock racing - Not Stock racing - From years past Stock 27 turn motors were fix timing - Just because the motor and ESC can allow timing/Boost adjustments now that still should not be allowed in Stock racing. If you want to run additional timing/Boost then run Mod Class -

Not if you go back even further. Stock motors were available with over 40 degrees of timing and it only took an allen wrench and vice grips to adjust it

Thats a fact... In fact in all forms of racing (if you aint cheatin, you aint
trying) Rules are made to twist,bend & stretch as far as you can and if
your really good you might even break a few and get away with it...
