geared my car from 5,3 to 5,0 and putted a cooler on the motor.
Lap times went from 15,8 to 14,9.
Tekin RS Pro stayed cool just like the motor.

Again 2 Tekin drivers more on the club in just one day

More competition. Updated them both with the 198 and gave them the right gearing with the motor. There lap times were from the start faster.

Tomorrow the race and everything looks good right now.
preparing my car for the race right now.

Randy when does the Turbo come?
I can use it next week. I'm happy as i can use it for the race of next week.
Is that possible?

I have found that esc boost has less effect on temperature v's motor timing. So you should be ok to go 30 boost and 0 timing.

I think letting the guys at Tekin finish the software rather than pestering them will get the update out sooner. I'm sure they will release the update to us all, as soon as it is ready, as they have so far. Sure you would rather that than find a glitch at ruin your day......

me this Sunday.

last Sunday'srace was not good.
qualified 8th. Found out that my throttle was only on 80%
After changing that everything was good again.
The final was not good.
After a good start i climbed up to 5th position. Good power bud it started to rain.
Held the 5th place till an other driver that i just lapped drove me out of the track.
Drove back to the driver on place 5 and just before i was able to try to get my 5th place back my car broke down. steering problems.

The other 2 finals were canceled because of the rain.
Moved some places up bud also some other drivers passed me.

I hope that this Sunday goes better.

5th place was for the other Tekin driver that i helped.
He was happy with the setup.
He didn't hath a good start bud drove to place 5.
I hope the Turbo is coming soon. mis a litle bit of power on the straight end.

For racing 17.5 TC ONLY, would there be a big difference between RS and RS Pro? Thanks!

Default 13.5 gearing.

For those running 13.5 in TC, what are your FDR's, motor and hotwire settings?

Also include what size track are you running on and the temps you are getting.

Any input is appreciated.

There would be absolutely no difference at all.

Get the RS version.

No difference at all, period. Save your money and get the regular RS, and let me know if you need setup help.

Well I went from an RS to RS pro in 17.5 and I noticed a good amount of money missing from my wallet.
