Randy,

I think my emails to you are getting filtered or blocked for some reasdon... I emailed you two nights ago right after you announced 1.94's availability, and again yesterday. I'm sending you a PM with my details.

Thanks

Got to love technology! I got my RS on Tuesday and have already upgraded the software twice (180 to 189 to 194) in it before getting to the track to run it.

A+ though for Randy and Tekin's tech support for all us racer's!

Hi,

I'm really happy with the performances of my Tekin RSPRO and Tekin 6.5T on a 23T pinion (that's quite comparable in terms of speed with a 5.5T on a 21T pinion).

I noticed today that the motor shaft is moving (up and down); let's say that when I go for a little throttle, the shaft is moving to the exterior ... 4mm (and looking at the top it's huge!)

I'm wondering if it's a manufacturing issue ... and how can I fix that ? Someone ever had this issue?

(I live in south france, so sending back the motor to Tekin USA, will cost me more than to buy a new motor)

Thanks a lot,

CÚdric

PS: anyone could send me the 194 ?

Thanks!!

I'll make a run or two with 189 and then upgrade to 194 Sunday.

Check the end of the motor around where the Tekin Sticker is. It probably is separating from the can and causing the slop. The same thing just happened to me and some others on here. Contact Randy and he will tell you for sure. Theres a simple fix. Mine is good as new.

Only the shaft is moving - The area that show the little issue is at the intersection of the shaft and the can, where the shaft goes inside the can.

You'll find here two pictures, high res, showing :

Default shaft situation : http://www.gamani.org/tekin/DSC_9346.JPG
Moving shaft situation : http://www.gamani.org/tekin/DSC_9347.JPG

Here're some lower resolution for small bandwidth:

Yeah im not sure your better off contacting Randy. I wish I would have taken an image of mine before I fixed it, but here is an image of a new motor with no gap. Basically the gap allows the rotor to float back and forth in the can because the gap creates extra space. Once again this motor in the picture is fine but mine had about an 1/8 inch gap where the arrow is pointing in this image.

Okayplayer: I'm not seeing a whole lot of difference between the two photos. Maybe I haven't had enough coffee this morning!

Shoot me an email and we can go over it: [email protected]

Fellow racers, for those of you that sent me a pm regarding software check your mail now. I sent out the file with a .txt extension to help in "slipping it passed" email wardens and filtering.

I've gotten the requests back down to none as of this very second.

I'm working as fast as I can to get it out.

Let me know who's missing it!

Randy,

You mentioned that the 194 software is supposed to be more efficient, correct? I assume efficiency can be measured in what temps I see when I come off the track. I was at my track yesterday and with the same gearing and timing that I had with the 189 software I noticed much lower temps when running 194. In the past with the 189 I would reach 170 degrees after a 6 - 7 minute practice run. With the 194 I ran for 10 minutes plus and came off the track at 170-175. With that said the track layout changed since last week so I'm not sure how much that factors in. I guess a good test would be to run 189 for 6 minutes and then 194 for 6 minutes and check the temps. I was just curious if my temp change was due to the software change?

I am running an Xray 008/009 with a Speed Passion 17.5 in sensored mode and 18 boost.
