Loving every moment with my Mamba Max Pro in CHEAT mode. So much power yet so cool. But missing my RS Pro.... Hurry Randy....

Default Tekin should charge something for new updates.

that way we know that they will be working extra hard to not only update frequently, but keep an edge over the competition. I commend Tekin for not charging us extra, but their a business. I would rather pay 25-35 bucks for a software upgrade than buy a new $200 speedo every month.

I've been on the fence for a long time about which ESC to buy. I'm finally ready to make the plunge to brushless so I'm forced to make the choice. I decided on Tekin because I don't want to have to buy a new ESC every 6-8 months and because it does not have a fan. If Tekin has a new hardware release I'll just move the RS to my off-road car.

The one concern I have is thermaling. This summer I pointed my temp gun at the asphalt and it read 140 degrees. People were having trouble with thermaling regardless of ESC brand. Is the RS Pro less prone to thermaling than the RS? I read at least one post on here of somebody saying the used the RX8 for 1/10 on-road. Does it have the same software update as the RS (I.e. turbo, etc) and is it readily configurable to 1/10 profiles? Is it necessary?

that's the one thing about tekin is your paying for the best components in the market so the price is a little more but its a upgradable esc and it free,that's what keeps people coming back

the rx8 has no sensored mode,if you had the room for a rx8 and only ran mod then you could use it but with air flow around the esc post there should be no problem thermalling,if it happens there have been a few that put a small fan blowing on the post. i race around fl and have had no problem at all

I run one of these in my wet car (RS PRo) in a balloon inside a sealed box;


Despite this it still only lights up the third light after running (can't remember what temp that is) so it still has a way to go before thermalling, admittedly being my wet car it doesn't have to be at full throttle anywhere near as much but still....

Put some putty on the moro were the sensor cable is and were the wires are on the motor.
The motor can become wet from the inside and you will not finish the race as that happens.

I used a custom made rain inner body. My car stayed dry and no head problems with the RS Pro.
Also in the summer no head problems with a 10,5T.

I've ran on hotter tracks. No thermal issues throughout the race with 11.5T.

Benefit goes to the RS - fits easier beneath the body. I don't think you'd see a difference in performance.

yes there is. it may help balance you car out. on my setup my car it is 10g heavier on the other side. lol

not sure the extra almost $100 is worth the 10g though.

Why wouldn't they be working extra hard??? They don't want to lose sales...

That's what lead is for - far cheaper, IMHO...

well, but lead is just dead weight. where as the pro has far less on resistance. i think the delta is like in the pico ohms or something small like that. granted in 13.5 you would never see the advantage, but there is still the advantage. lol

I definitely want sensored so it looks like the RX8 is out. I knew there must be some difference. I'll probably stick with the RS Pro because it may one day end up on a off-road 4WD if Tekin comes out with a new hardware revision. It looks like the price difference is $50 which isn't a huge leap.

That's a crazy setup with the liquid cooling. What liquid are you using? Is there a website somewhere that details doing something like that? I'm not saying I'm going to do it myself, just curious.
