Hi, Randy. Please excuse me if you've already posted this but is there an anticipated release date for the next software update for the RS? I don't see any mention of it on your website.

Thanks,

Oliver

There isnt a release date yet they are just waiting on ROAR to approve the new software before they release. Hopefully it will be out soon though.

what can we expect from the new software? I've heard smoother initial throttle. What else if anything? Thanks, and sorry if this had been asked.

From what i have been told its going to just smooth the speedo out in both braking feel and throttle control.

Thanks Jason

Lap time is good and top speed is really good, but I think I need more acceleration. Do you think it's better to run lower FDR then increasing the turbo?

Curious... What happens if we try the new software and hate it? Will it be possible to go back to 212? I like my tekin how it is. Definitely want to try the new software when it's out. It would just suck if I hated it. Haha

I just bought a Tekin RS. The ESC won't turn on unless the sensor cable is unplugged. I've tried both sensor cables I have and both do the same thing.

Motor is a Trinity 6.5. Would this be a ESC or motor issue?

Have you tried a different motor?

Had the same issue with another motor I was using that had a faulty sensor board.. and even worked on another brand esc..

Hopefully soon as carpet season is in full effect. So now would be the opportune time. U think. Just tired of the on/off switch throttle feel. I didn't notice it when racing on a large track, but now that the track is much smaller everything is tighter and the throttle needs to be smooth. I have 4() to update
