What is more important, the 16v, or the 1000uf? Isn't the stock capacitor 16v 330uf?

Definitely 16v. You can go a little higher, but a minimum of 16 is best. A higher uf rating is suggested as most local electronic shops aren't selling you a Low ESR cap and the higher uf rating helps.

Default Can I revert to v2.08 after having installed v2.12?

My local racetrack only allows v2.08.
they are being stubborn and really looking for the center flashing light proving spec setup.
I re-installed v2.08 on my PC and connected the car.
Instead of re-installing v2.08, it simply tells me that the SW may not be compatible.
Any thoughts?
Thx

Thumbs up 212

Had an opportunity to race with the new 212 update last weekend in 1/12 10.5 boosted.

Great update guys.

The new throttle, and brake settings really make the RS That much better.

One can truly customize the feel of everything now.

Well Done, and thanks again for the free updates

Is the Tekin site having issues. I can't get on the forum or do the newest update?

Hi Randy

Any idea how long it will take to receive my 'Return Authorization Number'. I lodged it last week.

Sorry for being a pest but I am getting desperate. I had to cannibalize my son's car to prepare my car for the coming weekend. There has been no reply from Tekin whatsoever so far.

Regards, Rambolin

What value are you guys running for minimum throttle in 17.5? Maxed out or what? How much does it affect the temp of your motor over 6 minutes?

Looks like Tekin's download server crashed again.
