Thought as much... oh well... I hope the Tekin guys don't keep the down under contingent waiting too long

Wait and get the Pro unless you are not running low turn mods like the 5T's and lower. If you ran a 6T I'd be ok with it. Low turn mod TC is one of the largest loads out there period.

There should be more Pro's being built right now. They will get overseas soon. Keep an eye on the local guys here in the states also.

I just got my RS in the mail today! I can't wait to get to the track tomorrow. I read few pages back I heard someone mention that you should not mount the post next to the motor for heat reasons. Is that absolutely necessary? I like my car to be neat and am looking for a nice layout...

Looks good Tim, hope to see it next week.

Got a ppd plate under the lipo and tungsten in front and behind the battery (covered in carbon fiber tape so its hard to see). I cant use the PPD side plate because of all the lightweight electronics.

The TC5 is actually an overweight car. When I had a SP GT in it and used the PPD plates I was like 30g overweight without the swaybars on.

That's a nice clean lay out for sure. Amazing how much weight you have to add to those cars to make minimum weight now with the tiny electronics and lightweight batteries!

Time to start reducing the weight to make tires last longer huh!?

Pit: It's not always "neccesary" however it doesn't help the heat discipation. The more cool air you can get over the solder posts the better. I prefer to face it forwards towards on coming air with the fan right in front if I'm using one.

Mo is one of our team drivers and he has posted a picture of a well done layout how I'm describing it. Mo's car was being abused on the track during the Reedy Warm up race which he promptly Tq'd and won with. His layout is also on a TC5 and is ideal.

I' seen more than a few cases, not particularly Tekin, where crashes have caused the post to short out, either bending or other car component crossing them.
If heat is not a huge concern, particularly 4-cell stock/17.5/ or 13.5 any reason one could not cover the post in heat shrink as an added insurance policy?

Other people from Tekin may be able to anwser me too.
I am wanting to know which Tekin Red Line motor is the closest equivilant to a brushed 12t motor, and to the LRP and Novak 7.5t sintered rotor motors. (the 7.5t with sintered rotor is their equivilant to a 12t)

Cheers

Mine came in yesterday and is now installed in my 1/12th scale I wish there weren't so many wires but that's the nature of BL. I've got a typical wiring install right now but want to look at alternatives in the future.
