No, you won't need a fan or a case mod in 1/12th scale. This is only needed in rather demanding conditions like mod sedan with < 4.0T and hot weather.

Hey, that is good to hear!!! We have been looking for a new ESC for the upcoming winter season 12th scale and the Tekin RSpro seems to be the ESC to go with. It is probably the smallest BL ESC on the market now in the no-limit range and therefore perfect for 12th scale use...

I guess the first couple of races will be raced with the LRP Sphere Comp. and around X-mas the Tekin will be installed ;-)

Joost.

Sorry if this has already been asked but.... what are the equivalents on Tekin sensored/sensorless motors compared to brushed motors. ie.. 648=10.5=19t What is the comparison?

thanks. I did see that already on their website. I guess my confusion is whether the sensorless motors are wye wound and the sensored are delta for tekin motors. I've seen where a 3t wye is equivalent to a 6.5 or 7.5 or something like that. I've got an R1 pro and want to run 4wd off road and I've also seen that 8.5 is popular so I'm trying to find a comparison for 8.5 to the Tekin 648 (for example) and what brushed motor is similar. Does any of that make sense?

Hey Tony,

Just got back from some off-road racing...

Anyway, this comes right from the Prez:

"362 Sweet for 2wd off-road mod and will gear up to a decent mild mod for TC, my 2wd buggy fav
537 Sweet for 2wd off-road mod and will gear up to a decent mild mod for TC, my 2wd truck fav
448 4wd off-road and will gear up to good mod TC, almost keep up with 362, my TC fav
357 4wd off-road and will gear up to good mod TC, keeps up with 362
362 Getting pretty fast 5 or 6 cell TC, 1/12 mod?, Oval mod?
268 Getting really fast 5 or 6 cell TC, 1/12 mod?, Oval mod
278 Hard to hang onto and hard on drive system, Silly w/ 6 cells! 4 cell mod oval?
290 Blows up gear trains nicely. Crazy!"

I hope this helps.

Mike

First run on my RS today in 12 stock. Am very impressed with the onboard tuning simplicity.

Has anyone had trouble with their Hotwire not acknoledging the speed control? It won't pick up my RS or FXR. The speedos both light up and the hotwire will light up all its lights. I emailed Tekin, but it was late on friday.

Hey Sport,

What operating system do you run? Did you load the software first, then plug in the hotwire to the USB?
