If you have set the most aggressive throttle profile in the tekin rs speedo, does increasing the throttle curve through the radio make the throttle profile even more aggressive.
thanks

Can somebody give a reasonable profile for RS Pro on a medium size track and with a 7.5T?

Touring car, Vegas 212 obviously...

Thanks in advance.

The limit on the Tekin RS is a 5 turn brushless motor. Is this limit based on
a 2wd vehicle using a 2cell lipo.... I would like to know if i wanted to run a 4.5 in a 1cell lipo 1/12 vehicle will it push the speedo to hard or will it be okay since i am running a 1 cell lipo versus a 2cell lipo
thanks

I've been running a 4.5 in 12th with no issues, TQ booster and all.
90x45 carpet, only see 1st temp light so far.

is that with any current limiter or timing advance and very precise throttle management?

could it be that someone with a heavy hand on a more open track and more agressive timing could pull more current and more heat?

Hi Tony
I won't guess as to what other drivers results may be, just stating my experience thus far with RS and mod in 12th scale.

Turns out using current limit takes power away from the top end, so I don't use that, just expo on the radio.

Once I get the chassis sorted out to make the tires last all 8mins, the 4.5 will be very manageable.

Led's 12 67 can be a motor, the A B C wires, or the esc. IF you've swapped the motor with a known good one and replaced the A B C motor wires and still get this fault code the esc will require repair.

Hey Randy is there a problem with the RS Esc's? I have the same problem as Olegeezer. In fact there were two of us at my track yesterday that received the same error codes. We both swapped the esc with another using the same motor, leads, and sensor. Also we were both using tekin 17.5 motors, no boost or timing.
I've only had my esc for about 3 months.

Luv the speedo just wondering if there is a problem on the horizon.
