It is easy. You connect your esc as you would do, i.e. + to battery +, - to battery -, A to motor A, B to motor B, C to motor C, and the receiver connection to receiver's THR. Then you take your Novak booster, you solder the red wire to the ESC's +, the black wire to the ESC's -, and you plug the other wire (with the futaba connector) to the receiver's AUX or BAT.
Switch on procedure: 1. switch on Novak, 2. switch on ESC
Switch off procedure: 1. switch off ESC, 2. switch off Novak.

all right! Never had a problem against other speedos ever since jumping over to tekin. With the new software, I expect to totally smoke them on the straight. The only problem is that everyone else is starting to buy tekins too. Not sure what the other companies are dilly-dallying for, but what wins on Sunday sells on Monday.

Plenty of adjustment and a constant progression in software development will always make it a popular choice!!!

My car won't ever see another ESC

I have the same problem. When I got mine I was the first and only one driving with the Tekin.
Some told me GM was the way to go but I stayed with Tekin and I got faster and faster.
4 of the 7 GM drivers switched to Tekin and 0 of them complained of the power.
We have now more than 14 Tekin drivers and more coming.
GM 3 and SPX 2 so Tekin rules at my club.

Not all the drivers have a hotwire or now the right setups.
After a driver used my setup and won from the other Tekin drivers and was faster than a former GM driver, I must setup almost all the Tekin speedo's.
1 advantage, I can diside how fast they go

I will stay with Tekin, They are by far the nr 1 for me by price, quality, service and speed.

Hey guys, so I registered on Tekins website with the link posted for the Vegas software (which I already have). My question is with the registration will the new V203 software be either sent to me (via email) or available for me to download tomorrow? Just wanna make sure I'm on the right boat here, Thanks.

I'm about to pull out my new Tekin 17.5 motor and give it a try... Have a Ballistic now and love it, but want to try this Tekin.

Any suggestions for a starting FDR range for the Tekin 17.5?

And the preset 12 degrees is actual 12 degrees or something like 32?

Hopefully one way or another I'll have it with me at Tamworth Ian. There will be at least 8 people running 12th with and RS or RS Pro, probably more.
