The solder posts are used as heatsinks - you might want to monitor the temperature of the ESC while running the car to make sure the speedo doesn't overheat. So long as you don't overpower the car, you should be OK, but keep in mind that the unit won't dissipate heat as well w/o the posts in place.

my Rs pro fit my F104 fine...

Are you running the optional body pods? I've been wondering if they get in the way of the esc as I am running the normal body, no add on pods

Do you have some photo's of it build in the car?
I have seen the car but for what I have seen there is space enough.


Something els. I get several questions about the Turbo.
Most of them if they go faster on the straight with the Turbo than the other speedo's.
The answer is yes as you want to go faster on the straight it is possible.
But this will not make your car faster than other speedo's.
You will lose to much power in the infield and you notes that the Turbo will kick in quite late. So your advantage is very small and only on the straight.
Gear your car a lot lighter. You will go faster in the infield and the Turbo kicks in a lot smoother on the straight. Also you will feel the Turbo on the straight as one acceleration.
When your car comes on the straight, it will keep accelerating till the end and it is as fast as the other speedo's.
The infield is than for the Tekin. You will see that you are a lot faster in the infield.
Also you can use a lower Boost. Your motor will stay cooler.

I'm already waiting for the V202 software. I like the new software features.
Each time Tekin comes with something new.
My speedo becomes faster and faster and each time I discover new tings with setups.

we double checked everything on the hotwire nothing wrong.
with another motor we don't have this problem but this motor has no problem with any other esc.
we tried it sensored mode and hybrid mode nothing changed.
but we can solve the issue with removing the sensor cable...
what do you think?

btw we had our 4th leg of nationals on 8-9 th august, come on guys i really like to try the 200 software in these.... pleasee.
check sensor plug and lead and clean out motor or shim motor that the rotor is about 1mm clear of the sensor board.

Its not advised but if you are running stock classes might not be a issue.
check temps regularly to be safe.
personally i would put the posts back and be creative with your placement and wiring.

This is often discouraged for multiple reasons. First off the warranty is voided, 2nd that is the "heatsink" for us.

I've seen them trimmed for clearance. I saw 4 F014's the other day all with different esc's including a Tekin RS pro, all fitting nicely.

Before anyone asks, there is no 202 software as posted in a previous post. 200 is the next rev coming out, should have more info later this week.

Sorry for that Randy. I now that there is no 202 but I can't wait till Tekin has find something new to go even faster.

Ok, let's talk about my last race. Usual combo:
Losi Jrx-Type R, Tekin RS (198) + Tekin 4.5, 94/18, with Matrix foam tyres (we use them also outdoor) starting from new (62 ish) down to 60mm dia, LRP lipo 5300 25C.
Fan on the motor, fan on the esc and an extra capacitor 16V 2200

Only 4 guys lapped in 20lap, and I was one of the 4 (last one), so I grabbed a nice place for the main.
Motor used from the three were: feigao 4.0, 4.5, Novak 4.5. A common note all with blue esc, one was the SXX.

Annoying fact were somehow the usual, "lack" of top speed and "lack" of acceleration. Only from the slowest turn I was "da man", thanks the superior traction of the Losi.

Clear enough, when I say "lack", I mean something relative... Otherway no way to be on the 20 laps...

Box chat with the other "fast" guys, one switch from Speedpassion (sponsored driver) to Sphere TC, and the other one from Tekin to SXX. This one say there was no comparison with the SXX and the Tekin (he grabs me out the flowing turns...).
He was also sharing with me the same impression: the tekin esc (almost regardless the motor used) "switch" on "soft" in the second half of 5 minutes (and is not battery related).

A note: brake behaviour was perfect, due the fact we 4, we were very close, with an almost continuos battle, it was mandatory, avoid to "touch" too much. brake was perfect, braking hard, w/o wheel stopping.

My Rs was as follow:
Drag brake 25
Reverse 100
Brake strengh 100
Neutral 10
Motor BL/FW
Throttle profile 3
Voltage 2
Push off
Timing 15
limit Off
dual mode

What I'm doing wrong?
Are really the blues so superior?
How can I avoid this "softy" esc in the second half of the race?


Oh.... I grab the second place

Did you set your EPA to 90% calibrated the speedo with the radio and after that set the EPA back to 100% or even higher?

Timing on 15. Why so low?
This because of the Lipo?
Did you try a higher Timing?

Lipo with a 4T motor. That's fast.
How do you keep it on the track?

Mikky:

No

Timing on 15. Why so low?
During the test, at 25, it show for a couple of times a "blanck" for a couple of seconds. Imagine a thermal stop, last a second or two, then I could drive again.
So I set it down, not a single exitation during the whole day. Don't forget that afternoon can be very hot in Italy on summer...

This because of the Lipo?
I've tested the system with LRP 5300-25C (3 different packs) Trak power 4900-20 and 25C, a pack of Vampire. Same story.

On a short track like this one, the "softy" was not so appreciate, on a larger track (22-23 sec/lap) is way more evident. Lap times doesn't change, you felt less push out the turns. Say you change a bit your drivng style and lap times are constant.

During 2008 I was a "blue" boy Never goes "softy".... but smoke 3 times in a season...


Did you try a higher Timing?
Not yesterday. With the Speedpassion 4.5 on larger track I was on 45, but I had 2 thermal...So I went down again at 25.
Useful to say, is that the "softy" moment is less soft with Tekin than with Speedpassion

Do you use a fan on your soldering post?
because I think that as you can keep your speedo cooler, that you will have more power.

Try it with your EPA.

From the Lipo's I thought that you used 15 timing because of the power of the lipo's.
With so much power I can;t keep my car on the track.
I want to see it how it goos.
