212 does have a few additional settings but guys are saying that the car has less punch or it doesn't feel like the previous. If all the setting are carried over EXACTLY then you should feel the same and laptimes should be the same. The new additions are to further fine tune the throtle and brakes. Don't give up just yet. We're here to help. What settings are you currently running? What are you looking to get out of your car? What's it lacking? What are you happy with? Once we have a starting point we have nowhere to go but up

Ask Scotty B, he came by on Saturday during the rug racing. I don't think that we could have accommodated one more racer in the pit area. Racing is great; but, I let some other "valley boys" get the best of me.

Sunday off-road was strong too. But, I still don't do dirt...Too much fun in WGT with my Tekin RS.

I've been proudly running an RS Pro in various spec racing classes over the last 2 years with great success. I am now looking into running Mod/open in the next couple of months with an LRP/Nosram X12 style motor and i was wondering if the RS Pro is competitive in that situation or would it be advisable to buy an RX8 for better power handling.

l remember trying a 3.5T motor not long ago and the speedie thermalled within 2 minutes in dual mode. I believe running twin caps and a fan on the posts is advisable but will it give me the performance i need to be competitive against LRP's and Speed Passions ESC's. Any advice/opinions/setups would be greatly appreciated

FYI: I'm currently runing a 416WE/X on various outdoor tracks w/ rubber tyres.

Thanks in Advance,
Steve

It has proven that the RS is fast but now how can you make this speedcontrol smooth on the infield.

This is exaclty what i have been struggling with !
If someone has some good settings for a Rs and 10.5t Redline for use indoor on carpet that would be great. The throttle feels dead at the bottom then WHAM all the power comes in a massive chunk right at the top.

What are your settings?

Sounds like you should degrease the rpm range and increase your turbo delay.

It all comes down to throtle finger and proper gearing. The caps and fan do help but if someone is heavy on the throtle then the gearing needs to be adjusted as well as the speedo settings. A 3.5 is a beast and will need the proper settings to be controllable. Use a practice day or two to get the feel of it and do the 2min run and temp your motor test to see if the gearing/settings are correct.

What settings are both of you currently running and what motor? One way to smooth out the car is increasing the end rpm's while staying with the same start rpm's. Boost also plays a factor. What changes have you already done to try and smooth it out so I dont suggest something you did already?

TC3nitro- Sounds like you could use a bit more boost in your set up. How much are you running now and what motor and gearing? I'm sure a simple adjustment and you'll be happy. I also assume this is for sedan???

Exclamation

I am sure this is going to come off like a Rookie question.

Broke the capacitor on my RS, and would like to use it this weekend, but none of our local hobby shops stock any Tekin hardware. Would I be able to find one at Radio Shack?

The stock Tekin cap is 330uf, 16v. See the shack has a 1000uf, 35v Radial cap. Would this get me by till I can get the Tekin one?
