Love the gold posts. Please don't change a thing. I remember having to mail my old orange ESC back to Novak to get a wire resoldered and I know I'll never have that problem with my Tekin.

Randy, I have sent off a email to service, so I'll work out whats best to do with that. I picked up a new rotor locally today, so if it works when I get home, I'll run it on the weekend with some slightly lower settings and try to creep up on it a little through out the day. Also going to look at a FDR in the high 5's (5.8 most likely) if I have the spurs and pinions to get there. Fingers Crossed.

Why we are on the subject of spurs and pinions what are peoples opinions on which way to go, keep the pinion the same and increase the Spur, or Keep the spur the same and reduce the pinion?




20Smoke, that dosen't look like mine, I have none of the carpet stuff, and as far as I know it was a genuine Shumacher chassis not aftermarket bottom plate.

What motor wind you using Al? It's very subtle with a 21.5t, don't be afraid to freewheel it if it is 21.5, you only need to do it for a sec to check...

Default Inquiry about Tekin RS PRO Setting

Hi there all rc lovers out there. I just bought one Tekin RS Pro ESC & Hot Wire. There is few setting i really don't understand how to set-up. I try to search the guideline from the previous post. But in fact, TOO MUCH POST, i really can't found it.

Therefore, i would like ask what are the function for below setting & the effect of changing it ???

1.) Timing boost
2.) Turbo boost
3.) Turbo delay
4.) Turbo ramp rate
5. Start & End RPM

I'm using 11.5 brushless motor with sensored (7.3 fdr). The track normally i play was ashpalt surface, technical, medium traction. The straight road is approximately 150ft....

Thanks for those who are willing to guide me....

Try the following with 11.5R.
FDR ~ 7.5 to 8.0
Boost ~ 40
Turbo ~ 5
Delay ~ 0.4
Ramp ~ 2
End ~ 16000
Start ~ 4xxx

These settings are quite conservative. Temp your motor after 2 mins. If motor is cool, increase boost / turbo until motor hits in the mid-60 C. Good luck!

21.5 is for pussies

Paul, just a general question about any wind I suppose. And I'm sure you cant go wrong with a esc calibration every now and then, and bump up the epa to ensure turbo comes on. I only free wheel for a split second anyway.

anyway, I'll see you in the pansy class soon hopefully

It's much less work to change the pinion.

Thanks for your guideline. What are the effect of adjusting the Ramp & Delay ???

ramp is how fast the turbo comes in
A turbo setting of 20 will give you the following reaction:
1.0 Ramp rate = 20 degrees in 1 second applied (2* every tenth)
2.0 Ramp rate = 20 degrees in .5 seconds applied (4* every tenth)
3.0 Ramp rate = 20 degrees in .30 seconds applied (6*every tenth)

Jamie covered the ramp, but the delay is the time between when you go to full throttle and the turbo starts coming in. So a 0.5 delay will start adding the turbo half a second after your transmitter reaches full throttle. To add to Jamie's illustration, a turbo setting of 20 with a ramp of 1 and a delay of 0.5 would add the full 20* of turbo 1.5 seconds after you hit full throttle (0.5 delay to start the turbo, 1 second to add all of the boost gradually).

Sounds good, I really never though of them as a heat sink. Thanks

As stated earlier its easier to change the pinion. However, you can change the balance of your car quite easily if you want by changing both as this will move the motor closer to center or further back. I use this quite a bit to find a chassis balance I like.

I only asked as the 10.5 was much more noticeable when the turbo kicks in, the 21.5, pretty much however you set it, just keeps increasing in speed. Now the 4.5, that's another story
