Gen 2's are being worked on as I type this.

Yes a fresh new rotor will often bring an old motor back to new again.

I doubt it. That sounds liker a bad bearing or a small short in the motor.

Of the 70 possible A-Main spots at Snowbirds, I now have ESC info for 59 of them. Of those, 43 were Tekin.

If you exclude modified, I have info for 45 of the 50 possible A-Main spots. Of those, 39 were Tekin.

I suspect the numbers will be even higher when all the gaps are filled in.

wow tekin dominates snowbirds...looks like the stuff was fast. Too bad the cant get the results correct....I thought Andrew Knapp TQ'ed 13.5...Andrew who they use to sponsor but no longer want to support. Maybe when they need him for free advertising then its ok. Any ways give the boy his credit ...he tqed 13.5 and was leading six minutes until Dumas pile drove him off the trac...classy...sure don't see Andrews picture with his tq trophys & girlz for 17.5. but you still want the credit...typical!

Andrew chose not to continue with Tekin for this year as a sponsored driver...Tekin did not choose to "no longer support". He did TQ 13.5 and that is a typo they will correct I am sure. As for Dumas Pile driving him I think they both hit each other more than once on that lap as they were side by side. Andrew wasnt mad about it and chalked it up to racing which is a credit to him for not being upset about it!

maybe it is because Andew is not sponsored by Tekin as to why you do not see a pic of him on the web site. i remember the last big onroad race, it was mentioned about a driver that used Tekin and was not sponsored by Tekin. the end result was that Randy and crew had to remove any comments about the driver off the tekin site and the driver did not even what it mentioned that he ran a Tekin. i believe if you look back in this thread torwards the iic race, you will see the comments

Yeah yang, I remember that one. Then you have a guy like Cyrul that is sponsored by two other companies that both make speedos (SP and KO) yet has been completely open about running Tekin in WGT.
