I don't see any 1/12 1S setups on the Tekin site. Where else might I look?

in general you will use higher rollout (like 80's), more boost (like 50) some turbo (maybe 10) and lower end RPM.

I heard that with 3,7V the Tekin RS can do 4,5T in stead of 5,5T because it applies to 7,4V

Is this true, can i drive a 4,5T brushless with 1s lipo

No it is not true.

Lower voltage = more current = same heat.

You need the RS Pro.

If you are talking about 12th scale i would think that weight would impact load on the motor and how hard the speedie works.
And thus motors which could be used?

Although i remember 5 cell (NiMH) mod used to really heat up the batteries and esc. But i think we were also pushing the esc/motors harder.

Trevor is correct. Less voltage means more current. For 1s mod racing you should be uisng the RS Pro. I've seen others use the RS for it and you "can" but it may thermal so testing would need to be done.

1s 1/12 mod is none issue with rs... We never even see three lights on the speedo.... 6.5 - 5.5 is a much better drive then a 4.5.... Laptimes are the same more of a element of gearing to get the speed then the wind in mod. If you go back to the days we were running 4 cell and 10.5 was SS. The 10.5 qual by ray at the 08 nats would of tq'd open mod.... He backed that up also.

Not much has chainged in the motor relationship the 10.5 can get it done just a lot softer drive and you have to drive more like a stock car then a
Open mod....

I just got my first rs, I generally run speed passion. I really think the Tekin is smoother and has better throttle response. But I did have a little problem. When I was celebrating I had to set my trim and subtrim all the way to the high side on my m8 to get neutral to be recognized. Even with the trims all the way up I still had to pull the trigger just a little bit to get the speedo to recognize neutral. Since I had to pull the trigger it gave the throttle a large dead band feel. Any help here will be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Did you set all the radio trims to their normal positions before starting the set up process? The trims and sub trims should be set at zero at first set up I believe. All other trims should be set at 100 when setting the radio to the speedo. Something must be a little off it it's not picking up neutral.

Clint is right, 0 our your subtrims and trim. If it can't find nuetral there, reverse the throttle channel.

If you can't get a nuetral setting to calibrate make sure your NW setting is at default at least until you get a radio calibration.

With my M8 i had to reset the model memory i was currently using and start from scratch. All trims were centered, and EPA for throttle and brake were set to 95%. After RS calibration, i opened EPA to 100% for throttle and brake. This is the only way i dont lose turbo in the middle of a run, and 8-10 deadband on Hotwire feels like older Novak speedo deadband (GT7/GTX).

This had to be done with my older crystal TX/RX setup, and my newer Airtronics 2.4 TX/RX (for M8/M11) as well. I thought the newer TX/RX might solve the issue, but it didnt.

Did you ever happen to cut, or change out your throttle trigger spring?

The first thing I did before I even attempted a calibration I did the factory reset. I bought the speedo used so I wanted to make sure everything was "normal". When I first tried to calibrate the speedo all my trims were at 0 and my epa was at 100 on high and low. I followed the manual exactly. The only thing I didn't try was reversing the throttle channel. I'll give it a try in a little bit and let you guys know how it works. Thanks again.
