what about ESC-Motor combos?

Not any yet, we're still finalizing the motor designs and then they will get here pretty quick!

What exactly do you find funny about the fact that the mail showed up and the final design with adjustable timing looks nice? FYI they also appear better on the track with lower temps and better overall performance than the previous protos. I am smiling too, but not laughing.

Pictures coming soon.

B18C-The Esc's will be shipping before that. Some already have.
The motor's will be on par for june,july if the quality is up to Tekin's Spec.

I have sat through this right along with you guys. But anyone that has ran the R1 with the new updates on anything lower than a 7.5 will tell you HANDS DOWN it's the best esc out. PERIOD!!!!!!.
It runs 10.5's,13.5's with almost NO cogging and will run 17.5's and 21.5's respectfully. 99% better than from the beginning.
What does this tell YOU,Me and other R/C people. It was WELL worth the wait.
To this date I order for a couple of stores. I have seen the following.
33 blown orange units. Costing $80.00 plus to fix each time. Warranty???What warranty?
Over 20 Original Sphere's and then a good amount of the 07's and then 3-4 of the TC's. The TC is their best yet.
MM's have been pretty sturdy with us. Mainly selling 1/18th scale version till we got ahold of the Tekin Rage which is a better unit.
Their 1/10th scale stuff has had some issue's and they worked through them as Tekin Has. Tekin is smaller,stays cooler and has a better throttle response HANDS DOWN.
Difference? Try all of them and then give me an HONEST answer and you will see why the Euro's are LOVING Tekin over anything else out. They run alot of Mod Sedan which is pretty much the hardest type of racing there is in R/C and they are LOVING Tekin. That there should tell you something.

If you dont own a business and even if you do,but dont do electronics then please keep the SNIDE remarks to yourself. Tekin has worked Night/Day to get this product out and be to the standards of TEKIN QUALITY.
Thats my friend is called Integrity. Jim ate Crow when needed and NO OTHER R/C company out there have I EVER seen do this.
If you dont know what it takes then again please keep the SNIDE remarks to yourself. This board/Hobby dont need it.
