I would have suggested an LRP SPX in the interest of a setup headache too, but recently both of my SPX's have stopped working correctly. The profiles 6,7, and 8 no longer perform the timing advance feature like they were for the first 3-months of us, but instead now only work like an LRP Sphere.

In my 3 cars I now run the Tekin RS. These all run great and are easy to setup and wire. Yes, you need a PC to get the best performance out of it, but a new Netbook computer is only $250 to $350 if you don't already have a laptop.

Default Thanks guys !!

As has been said - I don't think I can go wrong with either speedy, but I think on balance I am going to go for the Tekin

I have a laptop and I like the thought of having the adjustability and the longevity of a system that has constant development and support from a great user-group.

Plus it will match my Photon and here in the UK I have found somewhere that I can get the RS Pro and the Hotwire for less than the SPX


Thanks for all your help guys !

Now to find a cracking setup for 13.5 on tight carpet with rubber


Cheers,
Daniel.

If I had any doubt the Tekin was holding me back with my racing, I wouldn't be using it...

The 2 most "difficult" things you need to do with the RS Pro is

a) have the ability to solder well

and

b) Understand how to install/use it, as it has all the adjustment you need in an ESC...

Then you find the Turbo on the V200 software and you wonder how the others keep up with you

by the way, whats the difference between the rs and the rs pro?
The RS has a brushless motor limit from 5T
Brushed no limit.
The RS Pro has both no limit. For stock the RS is ok.
If you want also mod, choose the RS Pro.

You must setup the Tekin the right way. Than you have for the 100% the throttle.

That problem is with all the SPX speedo's. And than you have the luck that they have the best service there is NOT!!!!
THe SPX just works for a couple of races and than it gets slower. It's just like the GM. low quality on rilieabillety.

I was the first at my club and nr 2 in the Netherlands with a Tekin RS Pro.
Now there are 9 tekin drivers at my club. there are 3 more to come and than others are also thinking of switching to Tekin.
Also by other clubs GM and SPX drivers switch to Tekin because the Tekin is faster than the SPX and because the GM is more standing still than driving.
Also a lot of drivers find it hard to make the GM fast.
And both SPX and GM there service is not that good.
Tekin has by far the best service!!

I have set my personal lap record brushed and brushless with a Tekin RS Pro.
