Hi Guys,

Thanks for all your posts so far... Makes for interesting reading...

Think I can safely cross off the KO as not one mention on this as yet...

I was just wondering, a few guys, say power comes from timing advance, im not believing this entirely the case but is it true on the most part....?

Obviously the SPX is is using a high amount of advance for the RPM, but the tekin im led to believe has max advance of 24. Is this something to be concerned about? or is it as I do at the moment with the GT1.0 gearing it slightly taller to get the most from it?

How will the SXX do you think will fit into this?

Thanks

The Tekin has the advantage that you can change the timing without losing the acceleration.
On small indoor tracks you need other settings than on big tracks. That's one thing the SPX is limited in.
A lot of rpm is fantastic but you lose power in the motor. Find the balance between rpm and power.
plus the software update's keep the Tekin up to date.

I will surely go for the Hobbywing XeRun 2.0 (120A) which is the Speed Passion GT PRO 2.0.

OK... i guess Id have to try a tekin.. the speed passion allows you to change timing and change the take off power as well. but maybe your saying the tekin just does it better?

I have a Speedpassion GT 1.1 and notice mine is a bit softer in the infield... but a beast on the straights.... however I know other people with speedpassions and their cars are a monster in the infields and nice on the straigts as well.. They run speedpassion motors though..another factor maybe Im running an orion, maybe this is the difference. not to mention they may have their setting a little difference than mine... expo, timing etc.
