Hara ran our esc at the IIC in Vegas this year. Hara is also using the Tekin RS Pro right now at his home track in Thailand.

2011 will be another good year for Tekin, you never know who might be the next Tekin Team driver!?

is he also driving mod with it or only stock?
was he running the Tekin speedo by the last dutch ets race?

I ask this because I hear a lot of negative tings for mod wile I have good experience with the speedo in mod. I'm still running an old 4,5t lrp motor and I'm still winning races with it.
I don't use extra cooling for the speedo and I have no temp problems.
for stock the speedo has proven to be the top. just watch the results. but for mod it would be great.

Ok just installed the Rs in my T3 011 with 212 and the minimum throttle at 0 but it still seems to give a jolt of power when i first pull away.It almost feels like there is a minimum throttle set and it is kicking in. Does anyone have an idea how i can smooth this out a little ? would it be worth setting some neutral width and if so how much

17.5 duo 2 timing set 1 click above centre (dont know what this is in deg sorry)
FDR 6.38
boost 40
turbo 12
ramp 0.2
delay 0.5
profile 4
rpm start 5000 ish
rpm finsh 18000ish
neutral width 0

Your settings are extremely close to mine, but I'm using a 17.5 redline motor right now, 12 min throttle and neutral width around 20 I think. I don't find it jolts. Quite smooth in fact.

Neutral width at 0 might be the problem. If not, you could also try lowering the endbell timing or play around with throttle expo on your transmitter.

Is there any conflicts between Tekin technology, and Spektrum technology.
Every once in a while I have mysterious power cut offs, loss of signal to the ESC, and inconsistant throttle responce.

This can be a DSM brown out. It depends on what servo and other things are on the BEC circuit like personal transponders,fans,etc.

Add a cap to your receiver, see if it goes away. It often will.

I'm not sure if Hara was running the RS Pro at the Dutch race to be honest. I've been talking to him daily since the 1/8 Nitro worlds so I'll have to ask him.

The RS will be more than sufficient for 17.5 and 21.5 rubber tire on carpet.

For 17.5, the regular RS is all you need. If you plan to run some mod, pick up the pro. Make sure you get a hot wire. Amainhobbies should have everything you need.
