I have sat through this right along with you guys. But anyone that has ran the R1 with the new updates on anything lower than a 7.5 will tell you HANDS DOWN it's the best esc out. PERIOD!!!!!!.
It runs 10.5's,13.5's with almost NO cogging and will run 17.5's and 21.5's respectfully. 99% better than from the beginning.
What does this tell YOU,Me and other R/C people. It was WELL worth the wait.
To this date I order for a couple of stores. I have seen the following.
33 blown orange units. Costing $80.00 plus to fix each time. Warranty???What warranty?
Over 20 Original Sphere's and then a good amount of the 07's and then 3-4 of the TC's. The TC is their best yet.
MM's have been pretty sturdy with us. Mainly selling 1/18th scale version till we got ahold of the Tekin Rage which is a better unit.
Their 1/10th scale stuff has had some issue's and they worked through them as Tekin Has. Tekin is smaller,stays cooler and has a better throttle response HANDS DOWN.
Difference? Try all of them and then give me an HONEST answer and you will see why the Euro's are LOVING Tekin over anything else out. They run alot of Mod Sedan which is pretty much the hardest type of racing there is in R/C and they are LOVING Tekin. That there should tell you something.

If you dont own a business and even if you do,but dont do electronics then please keep the SNIDE remarks to yourself. Tekin has worked Night/Day to get this product out and be to the standards of TEKIN QUALITY.
Thats my friend is called Integrity. Jim ate Crow when needed and NO OTHER R/C company out there have I EVER seen do this.
If you dont know what it takes then again please keep the SNIDE remarks to yourself. This board/Hobby dont need it.

Then let the product speak for itself. Your statement can be taken the same way about Novak and LRP that you guys take the jokes about your products coming from others. I have first hand seen the new sensored speedo in action and I have some pros and cons about it but haven't posted anything on the net. Turn the other cheek and let the product speak for itself. This is a public message board and you are gonna get the SNIDE comments every now and then. It's the nature of the beast. Take my comments as they are. Not neg or pos just an observation. Someone weak minded can take offense to your statements and start bashing Tekin products just to get a rise out of you and if that happens who will be the real loser????? A negative comment or bad experience goes a long way. I'm sure Tekin doesn't need or want that any more than they already have. I'm just a racer thinking out loud.

Better be careful about that statement. If I remember Novak got sued over saying the same thing Maybe "assembled" in the USA would be better

Ok, designed and assembled in the USA with foreign and domestic components.

Jeff, it's not a TypeR (I wish!) It's my 2000 LS, just last fall I installed a full T3/T4 Hybrid turbo kit, Intercooler, injectors, gauges, short shift, did all the work myself except the welding on the exhaust part. Just replaced the timing belt and water pump on it this past Saturday with Zken, that was a chore and a half!

Nah, I throw my winter tires on and charge forth! It does pretty good actually, I wish I had a truck though, I feel like I'm beating the crap out of it in the winter, hitting all the damn washboards and frost heaves.

It's a blast to drive now tho!

yes it will be legal to run because ROAR has no rules that require speedo's to be approved.


You'll love the RS I do.

So you do have your own factory or is it "designed by Tekin made by a third party manufacturer" ?
