On small indoor tracks I have seen the Tekin and the SPX go good.
The GM I don't now.
But the best thing is. more and more GM and SPX drivers switch here to Tekin.

A club member was asking me what to do with the space he has over now he has a Tekin.
It's the smallest from the 3. He was surprised that it was so small.

Now I have changed the wires on my speedo.
I will go over to dean connectors.
Shorten the wires to the lipo and made the wires to the motor thinner.


By the way, how many come from the Netherlands in this topic?
Because I think that the Americans don't use the GM as much as we do in Europe.

When I get my photon I hope now finally to have a lighter car.
I have also shortened the wire on my servo. With the light Tekin it must be possible to stay close to the 1400Gram.

what size wires are you using? I use 12awg wires everywhere. Isn't it the case that smaller wires get more resistance while they have fewer strands in them?

I have to the motor 1 size smaller.
Same size as GM is using to the motor.
The wires to the lipo are still the same.

My TC5R (not the newest car) is just with already 30 grams of lead just below the 1400.... hoe heavy is that tekin ;-)

Uhm Robbert on more tracks they switch to Tekin.

I have always a car without extra weight and it's always to heavy. How do you do it?
I hope with my new car that it will be lighter.

Nice post... Its rare to see someone who knows how to take advantage of the tekin rather than throw heaps of timing at it and wonder why it has now punch.

I did some playing around with an SPX the other day and must say i am dissapointed. Setting up this speedy is easy however as you just set it to profile 8 and gear by temp. This speedy seems to have some form of controlled spool up speed and it actually loses punch as you gear down.

I have never played with a GM but have heard all sorts of weird comments about them. They do go well if you can work it out.

Also try the TeamWave RB-50. It has a better form of dynamic timming than the SPX and like the Tekin has a selectable turbo at full throttle.

Thanks

The most power do you get with a lower Boost.
You will lose some top speed but there you use the Turbo for.

I race always with the lightest gearing from all the other drivers.
My motor is one of the coolest and I have a lot of power.
As I need more top speed i use a bit more Boost.
Els I keep it low for a good infield speed. It depends on the track and motor.
