I have my Tekin Redline motor 10,5.
Compare to a LRP 10,5. do i need to gear it lighter or the same?

I would say that you'll be just fine, especially with the RS Pro and those motors. Lots of bashers (and some racers) run connectors everywhere with much faster setups.

You'll barely be exercising that RS Pro and it won't even notice.

This is just my opinion, but why not just put the 4mm bannan plugs on at the end of the wires, then wire the motor with the matching opposite end. I have seen this done, and they keep the wires on the motor super short. You just match up the right wires and go. I used these connectors in the past for this, and they work very well. On mine, I had the female ends on the motor, and had heat shrink over them. They were just 1cm longer than the connector itself, and it always stayed on the motor. Made life easy when you had to switch.

Thanks Reen, I thought it should be OK too. I don't know how I will do it yet but wondered if that was an option. It is going in Evo V so the Speedo is right next to the motor connects so that area for wires is really small.

Dragula, not sure what Im going to do yet. The motivation for the plugs on the speedo itself is that it keeps the weight lower and would be a little cleaner.

My concern would be stressing that solder joint plugging in and out. Should be no performance problems or heat on any spec motor with RS or RSpro. Even the RS is hardly breathing hard on a 10.5

We run about 3" of wire on the speedo with a 4mm female, and 3" of wire on the motor with a 4mm male. Longer than needed for some installs, but we are constantly switching things around. Makes is easy and we are not stressing any of the solder joints. We suggest our 4mm high power solid connectors.

This past weekend the Tekin RS esc helped me take the TQ and win in 12th scale Super Stock at our ROAR Region 11 Carpet Regional’s held at Timezone ll. With one day of set up and playing around with gearing I was able to hit the sweet spot. I have to say this is the smoothest speed’o to date and it made mad rip! Not only did I like the way it performed I loved how it mounted in the car. With its small foot print and soldering post made install a breeze.

Will be picking another one up for my other Slapmaster Tools MS3 12th scale for Carpet Nationals next week!

Here is what I was running for set up:

-189 software
-58 on drag brake
-100 on brake turned way down on radio
-3 on throttle profile
-boost all the way up
-13.5 Duo motor on 0 timing
-72mm roll out
-Timezone ll, 100x60' carpet, really open

Thanks Tekin for the great product,

Kody

Well it's good to know my speedo settings and rollout weren't the issue. Nice run Kody, the car looked dialed and the corner speed was phenomenal. Good luck at nats.

That is music to my ears. Great job by the way! The more info everyone shares with setups at different tracks the "perfect" setups will only get easier to find.

Thanks for sharing!

Are you able to change the bearings in the Motors? If so what size?

Also are you able to use a novak capacitor?

Default Capacitor

I have lost the capacitor for my spare RS.
What is the spec of the cap? is it something that will be easy to find from electronics suppliers here in the UK?
