Hello everyone, I have just purchased a new RS and I must say the service from Tekin was excellent. I had a set up issue, the ESC would not detect throttle neutral, I called them up and in 2 minutes it was fixed.

Other companies would have asked me to send it back for inspection.

Thanks Tekin for a great product and great service.

Default Broken case :-(

Broken case :-(

I am going through my car for tomorrow nights club race and noticed that the case on my RS Pro is cracked.

Does Tekin sell the cases as a replacement part or will I have to send it in for repair?
It's my only speedo and I would rather not have to part with it for to long.

Thanks
Andrew.

Spectrum users running 1/12 with 4 cell or any other 4 cell car for that matter. Make sure to run the sepctrum cap on the reciever. The spectrum will drop out under accelearation long before the RS turns off. If we don't get a signal we kinda wait briefly on the receiver. This is where you can "feel" a delay or you can get a throttle shot.

I urge anyone using the Futaba radio to email me so we can work out your problems. [email protected] I can share this info with our engineers so we can get them documented.

Wires falling off an esc can be from excessive heat and or a bad connection to begin with. I strongly recomend makin sure that the wires have enough length to not be taught as simple fatigue of a joint can cause them to fall off as well. Posting some pictures of your wire/esc set up may let another set of eyes seem something yours do not.

Any cogging with the RS: Make sure that you use the sensor checker function on the esc. Roll the motor over with your finger and watch for the dimly lit led's. They will cycle between the three of them as the sensors are "seen." If you have an erratic sensor, or one missing completely that is your issue. Sensors in the motors can and do go bad but I've found more bad harness's than motors. Harness's are easy to swap out and are the first thing to check. Let's face it guys, any connection in an electronics system needs to be scrutenized.
Hi Randy,
What kind of issues encountered using Futaba radios? I am running 1/10 on Futaba 3pk with Spektrum.

Btw, any sponsored drivers using the RS in the World's? Would be interesting to keep an eye on

Jason,

Make sure you don't have a stuck button on the esc, it happens on rare occasion.

When you're checking your esc for full throttle, do you get the entire led tree to light up and flash?

What radio/receiver are you using? I can help get you settled. [email protected]

No issues at all using the RS Pro with my 3PK or PKS and Spektrum SR3000, SR3001 and SR3500 receivers. I also have a FX and FX-R Pro with no issues.
