I know this is the onroad forum, but there isn't a good offroad rs thread. Anyway, I already have an RSpro for my 4wd buggy and an RS for my 2wd. I am still looking to pick one up for my truck but an not sure whether to get the pro or regular version. The hottest I run is a 6.5 novak in my truck and just wondered if I would have any chance of thermalling with the RS. If there is the chance I will get the pro.

Kinda, but not really. In the software, the settings go from 0 to 100. This is percent relative to the minimum amount and maximum amount of timing the esc can do. 10% equals 3 degrees of timing, so a setting of 60 on hotwire is 24 degrees of timing.

The percent is relative to the max timing, i.e. at max RPM.

I am looking into a new brushless/brushed esc and the Tekin RS (non pro) is one of my choices.

We only race 17.5/27t ROAR stock motors and I do o.k. now with a Novak XBR so even though the RS is not the Pro it is still an upgrade from my XBR!!!

And I figure it would allow me to get a Hotwire along with the RS

Is there a really big difference in performance between the RS and RS Pro
I've got the Hotwire for my RS and it is setup on the race computer if you want to check it out.

Mahalo's for the info Ty. That is good to hear as I don't plan on running anything below a 10.5 at the most.

That's why I'm having to have to go back to a softer tire in 1/12th. After I adjusted the timing with Hotwire my car's overall power seemed to come up and now I'm breaking traction with the rear tires too easily

Alright, I'm taking the plunge into brushless! My RS and Hotwire are on the way and I'm going to run it with the Speed Passion 13.5. Guys at our track run about a 4.5-4.6 FDR so that's where I'm going to start.

Randy -

These settings you are using seem to contradict each other. Everything I've read indicates that Sensored Only mode ignores the Motor Timing setting, and basically runs 0 timing in the ESC. I posted this on the Tekin RS 1/10 forum and Brian (Forum Admin) stated that Sensored Only mode disables the Motor Timing setting. Also, Jeff Cuffs posted his settings, and he also indicated 90% timing and Sensored Only mode.
