My question is, should I sell my current SPXs and buy SXX SS for ALL of my cars, or would 2 more SXX TCs be sufficient for what Im running? We mainly run the normal profile 3s and nothing much higher due to limited traction of off-road.

Thanks for any suggestions!
I think it would be better to change the old SPX for a SXX SS, but when you're using the SXX TC I think you don't need to change it.

The difference between the olders SPX/Sphere series and the new SXX (TC/SS) is quite big. With a lot of upgrade features.

But with the TC, especially because you are not not even using the max power out of the TC, you don't really need to change to the SS. The difference will be very little.

Even with a spec class? Are the timings on SXX TC comparable to the SS?

0-2 on the SS are similar to 1-2 on the TC.

3-10 on the SS are much different and more power than the TC.

Hi all

I have back to back tested my Tekin (203) with a Version 3 in a touring car and 13.5,so far its been faultless.The Tekin did seem to have a very slight edge on a long strait but to be honest I dont care if the Tekin did gain 10foot on me, at least I had brakes..in fact the smoothest brakes I have ever felt (I could stand the car on it's nose anywhere on the track)perfect for "in field fighting" plus a very smooth but powerfull easy to drive rip out of corners.....so far so good

As Chicky already said, there ofcourse is a difference between the timing of the TC and the SS, since one is designed specifically for modified racing, and the other one for Stock racing.

But as you stated earlier, you're not even using the full extend of powerboost in your TC, than why buy a new speedo with even more power boost which you won't be using.

Yes, the Mk3 software will fix these problems, and much more improvements.

Well its not to say I would never use those profiles, we just had timing in the motors instead. The extra boost would be nice to have if needed I suppose...

That differs on a lot of different things, what motor are you racing, how big is the track, is it a smooth track or with a lot of stop-and-go turns?

The difference in performance is only that a TC Spec can be used with 4WD offroad and for motors faster than 4.5 in 4WD Touring Cars.
