Yeah most likely.

Try one more time. If anyone asks for the new software with 189 I need to attach a file with the extension changed to a ".txt" file that you must change back to .zip to use.

Sorry if I missed it.

Does any body know if the latest batch rs pro's were shipped with the 189 software installed.

Thanks

Default new software.

My guess would be no, since the 189 software is a beta version and is still in the testing mode. i'm guessing they either have version 180 or older, possibly 183

Programing other than the "Hotwire" can still be done externally with the buttons on top. Just like all the other speedo's. The real magic is having the hot wire to actually see what the programing looks like, instead of guessing.

The only features you can't access directly on the speed control are timing and hybrid/sensored only modes. I was debating between the GT and RS when both my blue esc's bombed the same day...The smaller size of the RS, the incredible ease of programing primary adjustments (drag, neutral width, throttle curve, current limiter), the "sensor check" leds, and the fact its usa designed and build convinced me.

One of the biggest benefits to the Hotwire is being able to upgrade or choose which software you want to use. Currently you can choose between 189,183, and 180 if you have the current software.

Just like Eli said, you can program the esc with most of the its functions right on the esc interface.

We don't plan on releasing a card. The benefits of having the USB interface are hard to ignore. The next nice feature will be user selectable saved programs. This will allow you to choose between your favorite setups right on the esc's interface since they're already loaded....soon to come.

Awesome. One could have safe, moderate, and aggressive timing profiles loaded for race day and have the ability to quickly switch around without dragging out the laptop. Nice.

!! that's good enough!! you can save a couple of setups and then try them at the track without needing to haul the laptop as well!... must remember to keep 1 setup as "safe setup" thanks randy!

I came from the speedpassion gt to the tekin rs in my touring car. The tekin is A LOT smoother, the boost function makes it actually faster than my gt was. the rs also solved the two biggest problems I had first being the size. The gt always made my chassis cluttered and with where the position of the wire tabs where made it hard to wire. Secondly the brakes on the gt are absolutly terrible worst brakes ever the rs has brakes better or very similar to the lrp.

thanks i just made up my mind now my original aim was to be competitive (or better hehe) versus the lrp guys. Just wanting something different (because I like different - but not worse).. so the rs pro is the ticket.

as for the motor.. do you think the redline 10.5T is competitive with vector x11 10.5T? what do you recommend otherwise?

Also helps if you have "Fat Fingers" and wires that go across the top for a better wire job and not have all the brass next to battery bars!!!
