Why did Scotty have a Tekin in his car?

Or was that his car?

slap a 3.5 to the novak and see how trusty it is... that thing is the god of thermal shutdowns when used with the novak motors.

I am sure I gear it right. but I am not the feather finger guy to drive it right. I am more into the power grip style of driving. having a record of burned out 3 packs in a day. the amps are just never been enough for my muscle car.

If your just trying to be so helpfull, I hope you went into the LRP thread and told them about units thermaling yesterday too. I was torture testing the RS, seeing if I could get away with overgearing a 4.0 instead of going to a 3.5. It worked great until the track temp hit 150f. Then, yes I did thermal with about 30 seconds left and Lex, who was running an LRP TC with that big heatsink and fan on it, runing the same motor and gearing, thermaled about 5 seconds after I did. I'd say that's pretty good with no heatsink and just a small fan blowing on the posts. As for Scotty's problem, I think there might be something else wrong with that unit. It definately did not thermal with his 13.5. I checked the heat on it after almost all of his runs and it only had 4 lights lit. I will be talking to Jim about what it was doing and we will see what was going on.

Do I plan on running one....no.

I run for Novak but that doesn't matter. My homies run for Tekin and we all help each other out whenever we can. Mo is hands down is the best guy that they can have running for them in this area due to his relationship with all the racers and knowledge he's gathered over the years. He is putting this thing through the ringer and also gave one to a racer in 13.5 so that all the testing wouldn't be done in mod. If reporting what I saw gets you loyal Tekin guys all bothered then I'll stop because it doesn't help me at all. I'll just sit back and wait for you guys to run into simular situations and post your concerns on the thread to the powers that be. Good luck and happy racing.

Ok dude. You run for Novak but no matter how you sugar coat it your bashing our products. = not cool. do us all a favor and SYFBM.

I know that this may sound a little weird for a Tekin team guy to say, but...
I haven't really gotten that Stlnst is "bashing" our product. He may be a Team something guy (Novak, LRP, etc.) but I simply take his observations that in extreme conditions like 150 degrees F track temps we need to use a fan and maybe some type of light heat sink as just that, observations. If they are accurate then he is simply telling the truth. I did not gather that he was saying that in "normal" racing conditions (60 - 120 degrees?) with low turn mod motors that the RS Pro will need to do this.

150 degree (F) is probably higher than what 75% - 85% of people who race on asphalt are likely to see on a regular basis and no one on indoor carpet (as much of America races during the fall and winter) will see ANYTHING like this. Therefore if we have to go a little out of our norm to cover that extreme then cool. In my opinion having to do a little extra for more extreme situations is a perfectly acceptable practice and is the norm in many other industries (having an accessory to aide in unusual conditions). This doesn't tarnish our wonderful performance in any way. This is especially true when every other BL ESC on the market that I am aware of also struggles in this type of a scenario. In fact it is actually wonderful that that it takes this type of extreme to force us to do what any number of other esc's have to do at lower temperatures.

Maybe Tekin will come out with some type of really cool "fit on" fin heat sink for the posts just for these crazy type of conditions?

In any case, our RS is a great BL ESC and should definitely be on anyones short list if they are looking to purchase in that category. There are other great BL ESC's also, however I think that our RS makes a compelling statement. Some of the parameters that make the RS great are it really small footprint, its super adjust ability, its very, very smooth and precise throttle response and its durability.

Normally, even for low turn BL modified motors the RS Pro will not need a fan and or heat sink but sometimes it will. Let's just remember that being a great ESC doesn't mean that every unit will always work perfectly, or that we will NEVER be forced to have to use a fan or heat sink. In fact let's not loose sight of the fact that nothing that any mere human being has ever made is absolutely perfect and never will be. There will be failed units and the occasional weird performing ones also, but even at 6 Sigma quality levels there are STILL going to be some bad apples. The Tekin RS/RS Pro is a winner and will only get better.

A Tekin Team driver ran the RS this weekend on the offroad track I was at and it seemed to work fine for him. I know he had it in his 2wd mod buggy for sure and I think he might of usedone in his 4wd mod buggy as well. Either case his car worked well for him so the speedo surely didn't hurt him at all. The dad and the son that ran it really liked it alot.

I don't get what the problem is, Tekin have always said that with mod motors a fan blowing on the posts is required so this is nothing new, if anything an observation of something we all knew.
