As long as there is absolutely zero way to change timing, there should be no reason it doesn't get approved.

So when does it hit the streets? What the the actual price projected to be?

Any word? I'm looking to get rid of my current VTA ESC. I THINK AS SOON AS I buy another brand the new SPEC ESC will be added. 🍀Just my luck.

I have two Tekin RS speed controls that I have used in just about every class of spec racing. They have been one of the best values in RC.
When software timing was popular, they were absolutely dominant.

However, I have moved to mod and I am a little fearful that my great little RS may just not be up to it.

I am running 8.5 Novak Ballistics in a Buggy and a Truck. Speed control temps are ok.

However, I seem to get a little lag in the throttle that is making some of the more technical layouts a little tricky.

I have tried blinky mode, dual timing mode, and some modes with mild boost.

Right now I have a 22t that alternates between stock and mod depending on turnout.

I ran mod this weekend. I left it in blinky. It seemed to have an especially laggy feel, almost like it had a ton of expo in it.

I have ran into this before. Is my speedo perhaps past it's prime? Or maybe not reading the sensor correctly?

Should I step up to a Pro or Gen 2? Would that get me back the punch I seem to be missing?

There are several things it could be, but you should be fine using the RS as you mentioned in mod with no adverse throttle effects. First, what is your current limiter setting, then I'd check the leds to make sure the sensors are reading properly, then I'd look at the timing on the motor, and for good measure I'd check how old/worn out your packs are.

No, esc's don't get slower with age. There are no "wear" components in them.

Are you running the 223 software? If so increase your "Min throttle" setting a bit and turn off your current limiter if you have it on.

You can also heat each post one by one and quickly wipe each one with a slightly damp sponge. Only do one at a time... Your Iron needs to be of decent wattage as well or it will take too long to heat the posts thus possibly de-soldering them from the PCB. Solder wick is good but it all depends on how much solder you wish to remove. they also leave a coating of rosin behind that can be both good and bad.

Increase the motor's timing. Find your optimal gear ratio. And most importantly, don't hit anything.

TP-5 [Throttle profile 5] is NOT Blinky!! it gives the motor 45* of timing!!!
Look here & see what is what

http://www.teamtekin.com/hotwire_RS.html

There should be a "Locked Spec Mode" ie: TP-1 =no timing

hope this helps

Quote from Tekins "Hotwire" setup


Timing Profile: This slider contains 5 preset Timing Profiles for your ESC. Setting any of the 5 preset profiles will automatically put your ESC into Sensored Only mode. Profiles 1-5 are as such:


TP1: Spec Stock "blink mode" 0*timing boost
TP2: 15* Timing Boost / RPM Range 5443-20,016
TP3: 25* Timing Boost / RPM Range 5443-20,016
TP4: 35* Timing Boost / RPM Range 5443-20,016
TP5: 45* Timing Boost / RPM Range 5443-20,016
*RPM Ranges are divided in half when running in 1S LiPO Mode*
