We do not expect any significant increase in raw speed, but we do think 208 is smoother which allows for faster laps. It is also running a little cooler in some setups which may allow you lean on the motor a little more.

It is a double edge sword. If we let the software out too soon and there are problems we are idiots, people lose the race of their life and are mad at us for ruining they career. If we test the software for a few weeks in team driver cars to make sure we have it right some think it is unfair. I hate being an idiot so you all have to wait

We like to do things right and team testing is an important part of the process. We can bench test and measure all we want, but until it hits the tracks with different conditions and skilled drivers it is just theory. The feedback from our drivers is where we indentify needed improvements to give you a something that makes you smile. Vegas 208 should produce some big grins

I have been running RSs since they came out and have never had an issue with the solder posts touching, or even deforming at all, nor have I seen someone else with this issue. I'm sure it can happen, but I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

It has been mentioned that there should be no difference in overall speed so if you're being hit by cars running the new software...you're driving too slowly.

So you're saying that you think the 208 software will give a .5 second/lap decrease?

Personaly I think that it is a good thing that tekin tests it software before it is realeased to the general public

But Jim I wish I was one of those testers

Great to hear. I just hope we have adequate time to test before the onroad Nats. Do what you gotta do, but please don't leave it to the the last minute for the masses to find a bug ( during the race ) that your team drivers may have missed.

( One could use the iphone 4 as an example of inadequate testing, or is it just a media frenzy gone wild ?... personally my iphone 4 works great and finding a person that has returned their iphone4 is a very rare occurance, if anyone ? LOL ) but this is not the iphone forum is it ? )

....unless 208 works with the iphone now :-) that would make me grin !!!!

Let that driver who was 5/10ths quicker drive your car and see if he is any faster with it than you are. It is hard to admit when it is our own fault for making a car slower than it should be.

There isn't a performance gain between 203 and 208. Maybe you set up is off.

Anyway, just curious what the issues where.

thanks
When testing back in the 199 software we found that it had the biggest wondering signal. Switch radios and problem was solved. I love my Helio's though so we kept at it.

I run with some of the biggest hacks and haven't had my solder post cost me a race yet. Now arms are a different story

Well said Prez. Products have to be tested before release to the general public, even if they have to wait a little longer. Every company has to do it, Tekin is no different. (But I would say that when I'm one of the testers )
