Thank you, Tekin, for giving me enough brakes for 17.5T blinky. I normally run a "Tamiya-blue speedo", but when using it for blinky with an LRP X12 geared at 4.0 and 4-dot timing, it has no where near enough brakes. Not even when turning everything up.

After a whole day of practice yesterday before the big race today, a raced with my normal speedo. Before going home, I got tired of it, and put in my Tekin. Upgraded it to v222 this morning and first outing I broke my spur-gear because of to much brakes

Turned it down to 70% on the transmitter, and it was awesome for the race today! I was on pace for starting 6-7th in the A-main, but because of my bad driving, I ended up starting 1st in the B-final. I won all 3 finals with half a lap down to 2nd.

Tekin is THE speedo for SuperStock!

Click on Randy's link and scroll down to where it says DOWNLOAD. Choose .exe or .zip (I use .exe) download should begin.

Did you actually load the 223 onto the ESC yet, or just install it to the PC?
