I was racing with both the front and rear RPM bumper and the DE skid plate. It does mess with your ride height for sure. I have since removed both RPM bumpers but left the DE skid plate. It does add some drag in the front. Even with it grinded down a bite, its about 2-3mm thick. So you lose about that in clearance Clarence (old people will get the reference, HA!)

The DE rear skid isn't very thick, about 1.5mm. However, it doesn't last long. That's why they give you 3 of them.

ok guys so i fixed my steering with the glitchbuster cap. but my throttle is still messed up when i hit the gas it doesnt do anything but seems like it wants to go but it doesnt. it kind of makes a really quiet click... the esc lights up so i know its getting the message. the car runs perfect if i tap it with my foot but then when i stop again it wont go. it cogs when it does start by itself but it rarely does.

i checked all the solder joints and actually resoldered one. i also unplugged and re plugged in the sensor wire. i dont know what else to do??????

maybe i need to change some esc settings on the rx8

any help is appreciated as i want to race this weekend!!

Try a new sensor wire. If that don't work send the ESC back.

Did you check the spot where the solder post is solder to the windings? Do any of the post have play in them? I had a similar problem and this fix it.

i cant send i back because i traded for it on here its sensing the motor because when i roll it those three sensor lights turn on dimly so i dont think its the wire. i think im going to reset the setting in the esc to factory settings

In this visual aid(not a pro,but a redline,same principle) the spots in the circle are the spots to check. I had to find this me self. Hope it helps you and others.

See the circles, those are the solder spots you need to check. If they move at all they need to be re soldered. I soldered this many times before I got it right. But after that Ive not had that issue. The pro4 will look different. I believe the post are closer together, but same thing. And yes you need to take of the back plate, 3 screws no biggy

i just took it apart and the soldering looks perfect... i tried running the motor without it in the car just in my hand at low speeds. it will work ok no cogging and start up by itsself a few times but then i will hit the gas and it wont do anything. i think something up with connection to the motor.

i will try a different sensor wire this weekend and if that doesnt work im going to call tekin this is my first teking esc and motor and so far im basically beside myself right now because i spent all this time setting it up and soldering and getting a cap and for it not to work makes me not want to look at the truck

X2. Even if you sensor wire was off, it should still run.

Did you reset the esc settings to factory default yet? There was another guy on rcshortcourse that was having issues similar to yours and his motor start power was set to "0", once he changed that it fixed it.
