With the battery already having wires on it rather than tubes, I can understand why you have done it that way.

The only thing to look out for would be possible heat build up (how is the air flow?), but tbh I reckon it will be just fine

I don't see it as a problem, since the Tekin will not arm unless it sees a signal from your radio anyways.

Yep I am not saying it is a problem, and your tranny is going to be switch on first, so as soon as you plug the car is armed as you say.

I rarely used switches on my buggies before.

Thinking I would get more responses here is a post I did in other thread concerning the usage of Tekin Pro and/or lrpsxxv2 for 13.5/17.5 and open mod TC and 12th

Will these two work for both and if not what to do or get for both

Is it possible one esc can work for all?

Thanks

Answered in your other thread.

One Tekin RS Pro can do it all. You will need either a voltage booster or receiver pack to work with a 1 cell Lipo.

Thanks was hoping I could use one for all

Appreciate your time to answer

So for 12th need an extra item (voltage booster or receiver pack) at 13.5/17.5/open mod ok

Any way we could find out what roll out Mike Dumas and Josh Cyrul were running in their 13.5 1s setups? Looking for a good starting point for IIC

Do you mean have the posts facing the outside of the chassis? I haven't run it yet and probably won't for a while since basketball season is starting up. It took me forever to get this thing wired up somewhat cleanly, guess I'll have to revisit that someday... Thanks for the input guys!
