The best part is it will be a free software download, not a new speed controller!

As you all know, everyone here at Tekin listens. When we get feedback we use it as input, make adjustments and make our products better. You as the customers reap the benefit of this directly.

The Reedy race is only a few days away, we'll see some real track testing there. I will be in attendance.

Tekin, always moving the technological edge further...
I have always said,for the reasons you stated, my next speed control will be a RS. No one in the whole industry can match the support you give here. I just saw an opening and couldn't resist. Sorry.

I personally for Jackson would recomend full boost low 10* DUO timming. Gearing in the 4.80-5.20 range should be good start. Look for temps in the 165-175 range. Be sure to make short 3-4 minute run first and check temps as driving style and chassie can cause extra heat. I personally run warmer temps than many avg. 180-190* range being I run lots of brake(RS setting 55%+ drag).

Always keep driving style and chassie set up in mind while gearing.

Check with Jeff Cuffs or Mike Ivy for some ideas also in your area.

Tekin and SP have the best support period.

Hey guys, how does gearing typically differ between a 13.5, and a 17.5? (brand new to brushless). I am going to be running a 009 with a redline 17.5 on a medium sized ashphalt track, and was told to start around 4.5, and be able to cover up to a 3.5. I just dont want to get to the track for the first time, and realise I need to gear at a 5.5 and have no pinions in that range!

For 17.5 u will need to be geared lower that 13.5 I would say 4.5 fdr would be a good place to start with 17.5 depending on ur profile and settings on your speedo. I ran my redline 17.5 at around a 4.1 or so at fantasy world

If you were to start racing on smaller tracks and complain to LRP that the SPX is slow. You know what they are gunna say to you.

Nothing, cause they dont care.


The Tekin guys are doing great stuff in getting us the best of everything. Nothing is the latest and greatest for ever, but they are certainly doing their best to improve their esc at every chance.

If you dont like the Tekin then get rid of it. It's your loss

Agreed.

And not that LRP or KO or any other ESC's aren't great, but Tekin has been giving us all team level support for free! No other manufacturer lets the average Joe beta test software the way Tekin has. Then they take our feedback and make improvements and don't charge us a dime for it?!? If anyone doesn't see the value in that then I don't know what else to say.

Thumbs up Tekin are winners at Queensland Interclub Round 2 Australia

Hey guys

Just letting you all know that 1st and 3rd place were won by drivers running the Tekin RS PRO ESC and the Redline 17.5 motor in the Stock class at the Queensland Interclub round 2 event at the Sunshine Coast on the weekend. Clinton TQ'd and dominated each final and I Q'd 3rd and held my position throughout the final.

What can I say. Forget the rest, TEKIN is the best!

Cheers
Adrian

Yes, I along with some of our team drivers are doing just that this weekend at the Reedy race. I've got some new software and this will be the first real race test.

I'll keep everyone posted.
