We do not like people to trim the throttle out of nuetral or we do not initialize because we do not see the nuetral we expect at turn on. Trimming the throttle or putting Nuetral Width too tight can also kill Drag Brake. Some radios are not consistent enough to always return to the same nuetral if it is set too tight. If we do not see nuetral there is no PUSH or Drag Brake activated.

Yes we are also adding the ability to save setups in the hotwire, name them and pass them around as individual files.

I'm looking at it right now but cannot make out how thick it is. Is it foam type?

My only concern is, if it is too thin, then it might not take up any imperfections between the two flat surfaces, reducing adhesion strength...

what the stuff that's used to fix the esc to the package when new in the box... look like some hot glue.

anything similar that can be used on a car without investing in hot glue gun? that would be great as it is extremely sticky and able to come off clean if necessary...

thanks

Look for 3m body molding/ mounting tape.

I get the 1" wide roll, it's $6-7 depending on where you get it but the roll will last forever.

It sticks very well and when it comes time to remove it, it peels off very clean.

1" Scotch Foam Mounting Squares, found at Staples or Office Depot. With Hot Glue @ 100degrees it starts to melt, coming loose. Mounting Square are cheap and easily available. I even use it an mounting lipo with no problem at all. Stay away from useing hot glue.

Walmart also sells the same stuff as the Parma tape. They have clear and grey. I usually pick up two rolls for about the same price that one roll of the Parma tape costs. It's located in the same section as the HVAC filters, close to all of the house paint.

Mass Volume, retail chains are great.

If nothing else the layout is the same everywhere

my personal preference is shoo-goo, I will put a piece on servo tape in the center of whatever i'm glueing down, and then shoegoo around th edges and apply when it dries it aint going any where until you peel it off. comes off with no mess.

Tekin Prez,

So in 1.89 - the push actually works in BL mode? What will it do to a BL motor?

We are running on a short bullring track and I can't get my tekin RS to add brake as I slow down. I do have 1.89. It only seems to slow if I take my finger way off the throttle. What settings would you suggest? (I am running a futaba 4PK radio)

If you're NW is too narrow you can work your way right out of your drag brake. You can increase your DB setting too.

Push adds what we use to call "creep" to the car. However the Push Control will add creep that is reactive to how long you are on throttle for. You can set it up for a little or a lot to where it carries the throttle for quite a bit...it's like a storage tank of sorts. The longer you're on throttle the more push you'll get.

More results to come...

I wouldn't... the posts serve as the heatsink for the internals. Probably voids your warranty as well.
