Custom 1 and Custom 2 (C1 and C2) are user-savable Timing Profiles created in the HotWire and are selected via the RS’s onboard interface. This will allow the user to run the same ESC in a “spec” class and have his or her own personal settings stored in C1 or C2 for the non-spec class at the same event/race.
Are these settings/characteristics still valid for 212 ?
Or are there new values for these preprogramed settings.

Everything is the same as 208 except 212 has two new features of minimum throttle and minimum brake. Minimum throttle is the higher you go the more rip you get. Forexample, say you set at 10 for the first run but try it at 15 the next you should feel more rip at 15. I highly suggest starting at 10. Minimum brake is basically the same description as say minimum throttle besides it deals with brakes. Once again I recommend starting at 10.

I will be using 212 this weekend and will get a setup to Randy to be posted.

The main difference between 208 and 212 is the ability to control minimum throttle and brake ammounts and improved braking strength and response. All of your setups can be run the way they currently are to start with but you might need to turn your drag brake down if you run a lot. If you are running 17.5 sedan, I suggest you try minimum throttle at 30. This is where I liked it at during testing. As far as minimum brake goes, that's just going to be personal preference and may vary depending on ammount of traction.

212 Has the following changes and improvements.

1. ROAR approved Spec profile indiacted by led's 3 and 5 flashing.

2. Minimum Throttle: This will increase the amount of minimum drive the esc applies to the motor. The higher the number the greater the initial motor drive will be.

3. Minimum Brake: This changes the brake power minimum setting. The higher the number, the stronger the brakes are initially.

4. 203 level rpm schedules. Back down to below 1k for start rpms for the oval guys. So the best of 203 and 208 combined.

5. Improved braking overall. Reduced "lag" time and stronger braking.

I don't plan on using brakes this weekend

Still no luck so have removed it to send back for service. Is there somewhere in the UK I can send it to or only in the US ?

Think it was just coincidence it happened straight after the update to be honest as it worked ok for a bit. I have removed the voltage booster and used a 6.6v life receiver pack and that wont even work to move the motor just the servo moves and I get the lights but no sound.

Can we all just be happy to have a great product that can be updated overnight and like have a new ESC with the latest software available.

Do you all remember 2 years ago when a new esc came out, you all had old stuff and had to go buy the latestest and greatest. Tekin has taken that to the next level.


Thanks for what you do Jim and Randy

Guys just found a minor bug in using Custom Profile C2.

If you select rpms in this profile it may not save your rpm schedule properly. Please use C1 until we can get this fixed!

What is the value range for this (i.e. 0 to 50) and about where would you say that v208's default minimum throttle would fall if it had that feature?

If 208 had that setting it would be 0. This adjustment can be felt right on the bench.

Also an other question, currently I'm using this capacitor with my RS pro: http://www.lrp.cc/en/products/electr...0-74v/details/

I opted for this one as I'm also running a 5.5T motor outside with the RS.
Now for indoor I will solely run 13.5T and I think the LRP Cap. might be a bit large for this motor.
As I somewhat remember from my electric engineering classes a Cap. has an ideal size for a certain application, has to do with higher voltages as the Cap. get's filled more or something.
So would it be wise to switch back to the stock Capacitor?
The link is ok now, just downloaded the V212 software.

If someone could help me out with the Cap. size I would be very thankful.

If you can't get the stock cap use a 16v 1000uf cap.
