Lastly, I can't seem to find the wiring diagram for the RS with a booster/RX pack. Do I just remove the red wire in the ESC's plug?

Thanks in advance!
yes it still applies to the motor turn limit.do you mean this diagram.switch on you have lipo cut off switch of you have no lipo cut of.

1s voltage+mod=more current.

I'm no electrical engineer, but that's what I remember.

For 1s mod applications, you need a RS PRO. I'd recommend a Pro for any sort of Mod racing.

Tomorrow a big race. 53 drivers in the 13,5T tc class.
Today we had free practice runs. we all have 6 runs. the 3 fastest runs decide in witch group you qualify tomorrow.
I just finished my last run and I now now for sure that I'm in the A qualification group.
There are many GM and LRP drivers but the Tekin drivers dominated today.
One Tekin driver to go but he is just like all the other Tekin drivers by the best 10.
5 Tekin drivers with 2 Tekin combo drivers.

The A group list. Tekin 1, 2, 4, 5, and 9.
The Tekin combo on 1 and 2.

The other drivers are 3 GM's and 2 LRP's.
There are some BD and MMP drivers but they are in the C or even further down.

The lap times are close.
I hope that we get all the Tekin drivers in the A final tomorrow.

Some GM drivers came and look to my speedo. They were impressed.
I had a bit more infield rip than them. top speed the same.

I must go now.
as I have time I will place the Qualification and final results.

Well it has happened again......this is the fourth ESC to fail on me since November. they have ALL failed the same way, The ESC lights up but will NOT turn over the motor unless you spin the wheels and then it runs ,but let off the trigger and it won't start the motor without a push. I am very very dissappointed.

You need the RS Pro.

Took a minute, but I knew I read it on here some where.
