Both seem to be good....

SP comes with the programer though which means you don't need to cart a computer to the track. Apart from that I haven't seen proof one is better than the other.

As for SP's frying? I have yet to see that.. Or a tekin RS for that matter... Seen plenty of other "top" speedies go up in smoke though.

Me and my friends got the SP 9.5T DriftMaster Combo Set, 2 of them has got their attached fan unit fail.... The motor would jerk during very slight throttle from standstill but then the power is fantastic and easy to set using the programme card. Have not tried the Tekin yet

I'm using it on a Macbook Pro via BootCamp and Windows XP. Works flawlessly.

And as a side note for Mac geeks, BootCamp may be one of the best Apple software products ever made. You now have total freedon to use ALL software and hardware. My free time is now playing rFactor and VRC on a Mac.



Oh, and on topic, the RS from Tekin is a really fantastic speedo. Hotwire is wonderfully easy to use, and can adjust EVERYTHING in the speedo to your needs. I've run mine on a 90mph drag car, and this winter it will be going into my Vintage Trans Am car full time.

i went with the tekin rs 21.5 combo, hopefully down the road I can use the 21.5 tekin in t/a racing

ok, cancelled that order, I was reading the tekin thread and it doesn't make sense to me. the timing advance only works in sensoreless mode or hybrid and most of the guys are running full timing on the motor with the speedo not adding anything. So I don't think there are any benefits to this speedo for me outside of the size. I am going to hold off until I see something more concrete on these speedo's.

I have the Tekin. I used also a LRP competicion TC.
I will choose a LRP competition TC above a Speedpassion.
I drive the Tekin RS PRO with 95% timing on the esc. on 80% it's as fast as a Speedpassion.
Also is the Tekin lighter and smaller.

All the guys that use full timing drive 13,5 or more turns.
that's normal. i dit it also on my LRP.

The speedpassion can not change the timing as far as a Tekin can.

You can also wait for the new LRP stock esc.

Our Tekin RS can change timing in dual mode with the current software. The team drivers are using some updated software as we speak that will allow a "boost" in sensored only mode to go with even more timing.

In sensored only mode the motors mechanical timing can be used to change the total timing.

Give us a try, you won't be dissapointed.

Well, I've only used the SP. I currently have 2 that i use in off-road. One has always worked flawlessly. The other got smoked when two of my motor tabs bent together and touched. The guys at SP were super cool about it and sent me a new one in less than 2 weeks. Customer service wise they were impressive.

The reason you see that is because the mechanical timing gives more total timing than what you can get in hybrid mode. After playing with my Tekin 17.5, it really is fast when using the mechanical timing. Having the choice is the benefit! The Tekin RS is a GREAT ESC. I was looking at the SP ESC also, but Tekin hit the market at the right time and I haven't looked back.

Default Tekin

Another nice feature to the Tekin is even if you have it set in sensored only mode and anything happens to the sensor wire...it will automatically switch to sensored mode and keep running.

I run 13.5 or smaller motors in sensored only mode..but I always set the defalt timing to full just incase it would switch to sensorless during a race.

You only need the PC to change the sensorless timing, everything else can be changed right on the ESC.
