Hi Tekin thread, is Tekin a good product? Should I buy it? I mean, yeah, it's winning right now, everyone's buying it but I'm not sure if I should, only because someone might beat me later. So how long will your product last in a competitive market? Shoot yourself in the foot and give me an answer please.

If they were to implement something like that, since you don't have any problems with your radio, your full throttle float adjustment value would be zero and as a result, the precision of your radio would not be affected.
maybe you should stick to nitro?

Which would be exactly the same thing as changing the endpoint on the radio. Why have the exact same adjustment in two different places? To me, that would be like putting trim buttons on the receiver. Why when you can adjust it from the radio to suit your needs?

It's been around for a few years now and still winning. No other brushless speedo can say that so buy with confidence.

Most people are running GTBs or Speed Passion speedos that can't even keep up with the SPX's in the series, let along the SPX's trying to keep up with v203 Tekin's.



They were told "anything except v203". I put v200 (the next best option) on Technique550's Tekin, so I don't know what the issue is.
My guess is that they don't want people running 203 as it's too fast ! hence my "find a different track" comment

200 will still be quick if set up properly though, you've still got boost and turbo just not as much control over them as you have with 203.

Andy- If you are going to be running a motor faster than a 5.5 get the Pro, otherwise there isn't a difference. The Pro is a little taller and heavier though.

I asked the same question a while back. Randy chimed in with the 5.5 rating came from 2WD off road, not 4WD TC and I would be much better off with a Pro.

So I am curious....what is the lowest turn motor you guys (or gals) have run with success with an non-pro RS?
