Randy, Emile and Scotty Ernst you got mail
I am not here to start any fights between SP and Team Tekin especially since in the future I want to get a Tekin to go with a TM E4RS for space, but how do these pictures prove a "Team Driver from SP" was perpetrating a fraud here? I can make out the sticker and maybe the Tekin wire attachment posts but there is no picture of the car or car with driver. If he did do it though then that is F***** up and he needs to be FIRED!!!

I can tell it might be a tekin from the sensor plug. SP sensor plug is enclosed with the esc not outside and a different color from the esc itself..

My car was definitely not slow. There is no way his car could be so fast even with a Tekin. During the practice runs, I saw his car as fast as some of the mod cars, and when his buddies temped his motors, I went to took a look also, and it was only 75 degree C. Battery may be?
Ha andrew about 75C is about right i that was what he was running in practice when i first setup his esc

are you the andrew that was 2nd for the amains

if so was a plessure meeting you and i hope to see you in july

you can defintitely tell its a Tekin speedy by the white sensor lead plug and the location in relation to the posts, as well as the switch is all Tekin and nothing like a speed passion switch.

Wilson was not a happy chappy when he found out about SP guys running Tekin

I was running the snowbirds setup, and had good pace in practice,but after a RS Pro incinerated itself in the pre qual, i was too scared to really push it during the event with the settings, in the final i took it up a notch and the speed came back somewhat, so looks like i was just being too much of a pussy.

Unfortunately someone either hid the speedie remains or put them in the bin overnight so i did not get to take a pic. But holy hell the tekin boys can pack a lot of smoke into that small box, the case was completely liquified, and the internals were completely destroyed, the whole thing turned to charcoal. It even melted the side of the receiver.

The strange thing is that the battery and motor were both fine

My settings for 13.5 on Carpet are :

Vegas 2.03
Boost 50
No Turbo (Track with 25m Straight so not needed - When I have tried turbo it comes in too late and I am left with virtually no brakes!)
Throttle Profile 4
Start RPM 2800
Finish RPM 9600

Any ideas would be much appreciated

Thanks
What's your neutral width? If it is too high it could give that effect.

Yes, I am that guy with the antique cyclone It was so nice to meet the Aussie team. I like to thank you guys for taking the time to come over to join the fun. There will be a big race once the new RCS is opened, and I am pretty sure it will be a great track that is very consistent. I hope you guys could come over again to enjoy the new indoor facility. I know many guys from Malaysia and Singapore are planning to come over for that race.

Once the date is confirmed, I will let you know, so you can buy your air tickets ahead of time to save some money

This happens more often than you think.
Some drivers even drive with an other car than they usually have.
Even parts of other cars are used to improve there own car.
This time they improved the car with a better speedo

Use Jason his setup.
You will use the Turbo but it's incredible fast.
The Turbo comes in ad the start when given full throttle.
His setup is on the Tekin site.
