Just put my RS in my Serpent S400. I will be running 10.5 on Sunday. Temperature will be around 90. I will post my findings after club race. The small footprint is awesome. Hope it performs as well as my FXpro.

Ran my Tekin today. Not quite dialed in yet but ran well. At least as well as the SP GT but a lot smaller. So already better Only issue I had was my PT didnt count about 1/3 of my laps in 2 heats. Going to try another PT next week to see if I can narrow down the issue.

I ran my RS yesterday. I used to have a Novak GTB/17.5. I ran the RS and a Hacker 17.5 yesterday. At first the only thing I noticed was that there was a different throttle feel. Not sure if that was the Hacker, or ESC, or both. I probably should have ran the Novak 17.5 to really compare. I didn't really notice any performance benefits over the Novak...my lap times were the same. BUT Dave Arnold, a Tekin driver, had a Hotwire. I brought my car over to him and we discussed my ESC setup. He advanced the timing and made a few other minor changes. My next run was MUCH better. The timing advance he made gave me a great deal more top end. I beat my hot lap on the track by .4 seconds. I was shocked! My fast laps became my regular laps. I think I will get a Hotwire to do some experimenting. I think having adjustable timing in brushless ESC's will become the norm. The performance differences are significant over ESC's like the Novak. Oh...also the ESC temps were around 120. That was similar to my Novak GTB without a fan. I usually run my motor on the hotter side...175-180's. I hit the 190's a few times because I didn't pay attention to my practice times. I have a motor fan on order. When I get that and a Hotwire I will play with gearing/timing to see if I can get the temps under 170 and still get the same speed.

The other great thing about the RS is the size and weight. That may sound obvious but when you have it in your car it makes laying out your car almost as easy as a brushed setup.

All in all I had a great first day with the RS. If you're on the fence about getting one...get off

The default throttle punch is definately too soft. I kept thinking my car was weighed down or the drivetrain was binding. Got the local Tekin driver to increased that and it was much better.

What is the weight difference between the GTB and the RS. Including the wires, caps, etc. besides motor. I am looking to put the carpet TC5 on a diet.
Thanks and God Bless

I'm not sure about the weight difference but the size difference is pretty significant. With the RS in my BMI DB12R I have enough room in the car to run the battery in any of it's positions from all the way back to all the way foward. My 2 other fellow DB12R drivers here locally have to run the battery all the way back to have enough room for the 4 cell GTB.

My RS ran awesome today! Took TQ by a lap today in 1/12th and added even another lap to that in the main! Incredible ESC...it just ran great all day long. I love how the setup and programming on it are pretty much identical to my FX so I was able to setup the ESC really quickly because I was allready familiar with my FX. Only thing is I was so familiar allready that I didn't read the instructions all the way through to realize it had reverse! LOL...Imagine my surprised when the car suddenly went backwards on me! D'oh! READ YOUR INSTRUCTIONS

Thanks Tekin for another awesome product!

I ran my new RS yesterday in my touring car running a 10.5 motor. I was pretty happy over all. Speedo is very smooth with factory settings. Very linear feeling. Most impressive was the motor temps. No matter where I geared the motor temps never got over 155 on my Novak 10.5. I would also say read directions. Need to change presets for Brushless Forward Only. My car went in Reverse , but it was on the car stand. Running 10.5 and 13.5 speedo settings needed to be more aggressive. I forgot to bring my laptop so I wasn't able to dial it in exactly like I would have liked. After getting home I made several changes. More aggressive throttle profile, lowered my neutral width setting, and advanced my timing. Really looking forward to see what happens now.

I ran the RS with a novak 13.5 Sunday night on the dirt oval @ Chico's R/C speedway. TQ and a win motor temps 130. Was easy to make a few changes on the esc, throttle limit and drag break.

Looking forward to running the TEKIN 13.5 soon.

I got to run my RS Pro yesterday for the first time on asphalt with a 4.5, 6 cells. It performed flawlessly all day. The throttle feel was incredibly linear and it was easy to put the power down smoothly through the corners. Big thumbs up to Tekin!

Looking forward to getting a Hotwire to play around with the settings a bit more.
