btw, the 2 RSs i have here are v1.89 (b4 and 008), i will be orderin a 3rd here in next 2wks for the 12r5 (which i'm told should use v1.94??)

thx

At the "C" with the 1.98 software at Max boost (45*) and no timing on the motor I'm running anywhere from 4.8 to 4.6 FDR depending on the layout. Tags is right if you will be using the 1.89 or the 1.94. I had to go down down a couple teeth with the new software.

You going to make the June 28th enduro? Should be fun. 2.4 hours of racing!!

True! We can apply slightly more brakes in sensored mode. We are also always improving in the background and often do not say anything to see if people notice.

Default Document on using RS with Hotwire

I recently bought my first RS, with Hotwire. I found the learning curve to be rather steep. I needed to read many, many posts in this thread to figure things out. The results are worth it, but Tekin would do better if getting started were easier.

So I wrote a short document (attached) that summarizes what I learned by reading all those posts and by using the RS with Hotwire. I hope it will help others come up to speed more easily.

If you donít have Word on your PC you can still read the document by downloading the free reader:

Please provide feedback via PM rather than cluttering up the thread. Cheers,

WOW! I haven't read it all (20 pages) but you put a lot of time into this. Nice. I have a really good grasp on the RS and Hotwire but I'm going to read this anyway

Guys, Im in the market for a new speedy and motor for primarily 10.5 and some 17.5 racing. Im tossing up between the SPX and the RS series. Do i really need the pro model for stock racing or is the standard RS model going to be ok? I could spend the extra cash from the RS on a Hot wire is my thinking. And what sort of warranty support can i expect buying from either a HongKong or American store and having it shipped to Australia? There are a few local shops selling these but at around $470au for a motor and speedy getting one from stormers or a main at around $360au landed is much better for my wallet. Unless someone can recommend a better online store that isnt going to take 2 weeks to send something out at ridiculous shipping prices. Cheers Benzaah...

I have two LRP SPX's and two Tekin RS's. My thoughts are this, if you want a set and forget, get the SPX, but if you want adjustability, get the Tekin RS.

As for the RS vs RS Pro, you won't need the Pro unless you are running modified racing a majority of the time.
