Assuming you are running 6cell nimh or 2 cell lipo the 5.5 is generally a hot motor for offroad. Start with the speedy settings soft (no turbo and timeshift 0) and work your way up from there. i don't think turbo will be useful with that motor in offroad but if your car is dialed, give it a go. I would start with a rollout of around 23mm.

looking around for a nw speedo, it's either rb30 or sp 2.0. my question is w/c is holding me back in getting the TW RB30 is reliability since I've been reading the threads here that racers that have been using it is having alot of problems but what I like about it is it's Turbo function. BTW I'll be using it mainly in 13.5 1/12 and 21.5 VTA. any advice also where to get it in U.S.?

The RB-30 will be fine, and fast.

I am not aware of a competative racing speed control that can handle 2.0t. In summer in Australia people have to be very careful running 3.5T with Lipo with any brand of speed control. On the race track, which the RB50 is designed for, using a 2.0T will only make you slower anyway. If you are making a top speed car then any racing orientated speed control will give you problems.

I was given one of these speedies to test not that long ago. On paper the speedy looks great but i have heard about failures. If you read this thread a bit most failures seemed to be related to RB-30's or water. Anyway I went out to my local track and tested it at its limit meaning 3.5t with 2s lipo. It was a large track with almost a 50m main straight. I did numerous 6min runs with zero problems and more power and top end than my current speedy which has event titles to its credit. It did get warmer than my current speedy but it is a lightweight and smaller type speedy so I expected this. I also didn't have the fan mounted correctly as the supplier was using it for 10.5 and had removed it. All in all it held up fine and at the end of the day I'm sure I had it overgeared still. I would say a failure would be more a case of bad luck or improper use than exceeding its limits.

i was hoping TEAMWAVE could answer my question, to be clear for us.

Is there any real reason to get an rb50 instead of an rb30 if it is going to be used in TC with a 13.5/17.5 ?. Would the rb50 be any faster than the rb30 for such applications?

Ran the RB30 in 13.5 1s 1/12 scale today and it worked pretty well. No problems to report yet.

RB50 is designed for 5cells NiMH (3.5T) and 2cells LiPo (4.5T). Like any other ESC on the market, running LiPo 3.5T/4.0T is on the limit and have higher chance to failure.

For stock racing, RB30 is already enough.

RB30/50 can run 1 cell LiPo with receiver battery, we will update the firmware to support 1 cell LiPo cut off later.

For US customer, you can also order in our online shop.

Is the motor limit lower with 1 cell lipo? Explain the turbo function and firmware advantages in more detail please.

Ran the RB30 in my world GT Sunday with 1S LiPo and 10.5 motor. Very impressed for the first run, it is very easy to set up and alter the settings.

Tried several gearings from 65mm up to 75mm roll out and basically confused myself as to weather the turbo was effective at the higher gear or not, or if I should go lower still???? Motor did not get hot at all so perhaps higher???

If anybody has any experience a bit of help would be much appreciated.

Looking forward to an update for 1S cutout

Paul
