Wondering if Tekin is working on or thought about a 1s speedo that does not need a rx pack or booster?
I think that there is a new software update or the new motors are there.

Default Brushed mode

I am going to try my rs/pro out in brushed mode with a silvercan.
I there a better way to wire it aside from running three wires from the a b c post to one single wire to the motor? Can't I just solder one wire across all three posts? If anyone has a good pic. of their rs wired in brushed/fwd mode please send it to me or post.
Thanks in advance.

I am doing that right now I wanted to try a good 19T motor out and see how it compares with the 17.5 class stuff. I just ran a 12 gauge wire from post to post seemed a lot easier than running a bunch of wires to the motor. So far seems to be working well.

I don't have any pictures of it. But if I get some time tonight I will post a couple.

Cuffs just recently started a new job (switched companies) and has not gotten enough vacation time yet. He will be racing later this year though I am pretty sure! He has also switched over to AE now so I am sure he is still getting used to his new rides at the local tracks.

Just wire it in the 2-wire brushed configuration. just because it allows reverse, doesn't mean you have to use it
THat's how I run my SC's and never had a problem.
The 4-wire method is for mod motors

I actually did not run Tekin at the Snowbirds as I was testing a different product, but i want to say congrats to team tekin and its drivers on a job well done at this event as always!

getting back into the hobby..after a few months or a year ? ..

i have rs pro with hotwire.

we used to run 10.5 and i have a tekin and an sp and was happy with both, a bit more with the tekin

now we are running 13.5 class and i have lrp, sp or gm. What's the best match for rs esc?

thanks

g

edit: it's good to see the rs pro remains much more than just competitive after all this time.

From those 3 you can get best the LRP X12 with the RS.
As you use the SP, use max motor timing.
GM also runs but you must gear heavyer. It is fast but it is harder to get it fast and the feel is not that good.
I like the Tekin motor more to use. it is much smoother.

This was my concern with that.

Pulled from Tekin
Controls: Forward/Brake/Reverse
ON Resistance: 0.00005 Ohms brushed fwd mode, 0.00015 Ohms brushless mode, 0.00015 brushed fwd/reverse mode

Did not know if the wiring had anything to do with it.
Randy?

Most of the motors out there are good. My pics:

For non-boosted, LRP.

For boosted, LRP, Tekin, Duos are my favorites.
