Sure, as long as they don't have reverse, there allowed.

thanks dude, actually I was wondering if it's like the Schulze or GM ASP esc which afaik can't be raced. legally at big events at least.

Hmmm anyhow I found a place selling it for S$255.00, tempting... though while my tekin runs my $$$ is going into more batteries

Regards,
Alvin

alvin, you dont have to spend your money on those expensive ESC, as long as your current one does its job,i dont see why you should go and spend on another more expensive.
those that need to be spend on are actually tires, cause u do tend to wear them out fast...

I am only using a futaba 330 for my elect. u can ask rose what type of stuff i am using..

Anybody have any experience with the GM ASP ESC? How does the Active Steering and Power Control work?

I just got one in a trade and I'm trying to figure out which one of my cars to put it into???? (F1, stock or mod sedan)

Hi Jack,
No lah, just keeping up the jonesses My esc does its job perfectly. In fact, one of the ESCs I am eyeing is your 330 (if my tekin dies) - because it can take mods to the winds I can handle, and can run reverse right?

My next allowance I getting another set of tires.... at least my wear rate ain't so siong, I only play twice a week, and each time I go down to the track only got 3 batteries to play...

See ya around!

I was in my local hobby shop the other day and they were selling a optional item for the LRP Quantum ESC. The package contained 2 diodes and an aluminum heat sink. The cost was $30. I've not heard of people using a heat sink with the Quantum ESC, is this really necessary? $30 also seem kind of steep to me???

I don't think its neccesary. I don't even see why they offer it. Even when we see the pros using the Quantum with the low wind mods, they don't use any heatsinks. I can't imagine what you would have to be running to need it. Maybe a 7turn mod?

Default Schulz ESC

Is there *any* Schulze ESC which can be legally used in a race or are all of 'em just plain illegal? Their form factor really intrigues me...

Schulz Eletronics

TIA.

Darkside-Paul Lemieux won the on road nats with a Keyence heat sink shoe goo'd to his Quantum. They do run hot...very hot. So hot that the blue chrome on the case fades to silver after a few race weekends. The heat dosent seem to affect their performance as they do run very well but I have seen a few go into thermal shutdown. They were fine after they cooled off.

Default Problem on Tekin G-12C

the power to the servo is ok, but there is always no power to the motor. I need to hold on the "Set" button to reset the ESC on every run after I change another battery pack. and somtines this method just doesn't work......Anyone knows what's wrong with it??

AdrianM: jezzzzzz, that thing gets that hot. I also noticed in the latest issue of RCCA, the guy they featured in Racer News also ran a heatsink on his Quatum. He was using it for 1/10 scale oval.

So I guess they do need it. At least for mod racing.

Why would any of them be illegal?
