What the Heck does that mean? Their "Pants"?

Just my $.02, I am using a tekin redline 17.5, and if I put brake strength at 100%, its TOO much break... it stops on a dime. If I back it off to 50%, I have NO brakes... really strange. I am still trying to find where the brake curve actually starts, and I think its somewhere around 60? still working on it.

Straight from UrbanDictionary.com:

4. pants

adjective. British slang. Not good; total crap; nonsense; rubbish; bad
"The first half of the movie was pants but I stayed until the end and it was actually a great film."

Hi Pete! Just picked up my RS from Speedtech. Like you, I'm running a IFS-R. What gearing (FDR) do you recommend starting with in general? I was using a GTB before and gearing close to 3.5. Should I gear down or leave it the same to start? Thanks

Hi Guys

What caps are you running at the moment on your RS PRO's? Do you think there are caps out there that will work better than the stock one?

Cheers
Adrian

Many people used the RSpro in 8th scale conversions before the MMM and RX8 came out. You will need an external BEC and you'll have to watch the temps depending on what you plan to use it for.
