The GM is as fast as the Tekin, but the (few) guys at my track using GMs, are pushing 125 degrees celcius on the motor, where I can get the same speed with my Tekin, but only pushing 60 degrees celcius.

I <3 Tekin

it seems to me that the specific moter used come`s in to play. With the speedpassion 10,5 i run fast with the tekin and temps don`t get over 40 degrees celcius. But with the 13,5 LRp stockspec the speed is not equal with the HW esc.
They (HW) seem to suit the LRP 13,5 better with their timing and get more punch and more speed, so i am losing out on them. We can observe the speed because we have a speedtrap in the lap counts. Punch is observed when we both blip the throttle before the straight. Some improvement can be made here by tekin i would wish. One driver with a nosram 13,5 gets good speed so it has to do with the moter i presume.

You didn't mention your temp with the 13.5T, but if it also around 40 degrees celcius, I would recommend you to gear up a tooth or 2. You will still get roughly the same punch (with temps this low) and you will get more speed.

Updates have already been put out. Version 212 isn't losing any races in stock. What does the SP GT have that Tekin doesn't?

The Tekin RS Pro can handle modified, and uses the same software as the Tekin RS.

Thanks for the Link.

As per JMoberly's setup sheet, his set up is based on a 6 min race. What if it was a 8 minute race, fortunately our race organizer made it challenging and bumped it up to that duration FOR both heats and finals. This would particularly effect temp on the motor, ESC and my Lipos as well. What is the first adjustment i need to make and at the same time maintaining considerate performance (power ,peed) till the end? should i be playing around lets say the FDR? boost? drag brakes? etc.. Thanks again.

gearing,timing how heavy you are on the throttle can all play a roll on temp just start slow and work your way up

Could any of the team drivers confirm this?
Anyone?

yes it is 30* so if you loose the sensor wire you still have 30 and finish a race

I;m thinking about purchasing a Tekin esc, but don't want to lug a laptop to the track all of the time. Will the Tekin run adequatley enough on a netbook?

I am running a Tekin redline 10.5t motor indoors on carpet with rubber tires.
Tekin interface is far easier (although i think not detailed enough) compared to the Gm (which you need a degree in physics to program).
I agree with you, That is why I use the Tekin and not my GM.
I have my Tekin smooth enough. I love the Tekin.
My GM do I keep because it is still fast and good for a backup.

I run 10,5 13,5 and 17,5 with Tekin motors. 17,5T I got 2 days before the race from last sunday.

Yes. The latest software has the option to do an "express install" with a lightweight interface just for netbooks.
