Default Tamiya TEU-101BK ESC

Hi all. i have the ESC in the title, and use it with my tamiya mini cooper. It worked fine with the mabuchi silver can, but i put an old style johnson silver can in it, and it stopped working after a few laps. it will turn the motor about a fourth of a turn, then just beeps and gets hot. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

you said its old.. maybe the brush are completely worn out.. sad to say that cant replace the brush of J540 or stock silvercans... or maybe there is something inside the motor.. check it out.. try putting other 540 motors on ur ESC or try the sport tuned.. i shud handle the motor.. watch your gearings..

it won't run any motors. I've heard that the johnson is the same rating as the RS540 motors?

maybe the ESC cud be the problem.. and yes the johnson 540 silvercan is the same as sport tuned motor black can, the differ from speed, blackcan is much faster than silvercan. have you tried putting low turns on your teu101bk??? the only motor that it can handle (johnsone 540 and sportuned motor).. oher motors can build such a heat into your ESC and cause thermal overload break your ESC..

the best way to resolve this is get a spare or put other ESC and try running those motors.. if it runs then tour teu101bk is defective... and try getting high end ESC's coz its a good investments...

I did have one of these speedos from new that thermaled too early. It would cut out running a sport tuned after about 2 mins, sport tuned was new as well. Changed speedo and it was fine. I have heard that these speedos will run a lot higher motor than tamiya say, but i have never tried it, but i read someone ran a 12 double on one for a full 5 mins before it thermalled. Wouldn't recommend it those as you will most likely shorten the life of it.

The Tamiya speedo is good for what its designed for, and thats running standard sealed can and sport tuned motors, it get people started with a ESC in there car. If you want to run anything a bit hotter then you will need to upgrade. I run the TEU101BK in the Tamiya Stock class, and i have not seen a problem with running sport tuneds other than the one that thermalled too early, but that was 1 out of many and nothing is perfect.

If you decide to get another one, I have a NIP TEU-101BK (PM sent). Just use a lower gear ratio on a 27t motor and it should be fine.

Where i am racing(Holland) we use the LRP runner II motor on this ESC in the M03 class and from what i can remember there was one ESC blown up in about 2 years of racing.
It can handle a hotter motor but you have to watch the gearing tho.
I myself are runnig the same LRP runner now for about 2 years and it still works fine.
Some of use use that ESC and LRP motor in Pro10 cars to learn to race with thos cars and they work fine also.
Btw a LRP runner II motor is a 23t motor with 24 degrees timing.

cheers Roy
