if this is for real, then surely some great news to us racers, especially the ones who knew and loved their product.

Mind you I would hate to go buy new products for them to disapear again....

It's for real, I got an email from them today in response to one I sent them this morning. The new owner seems like a nice guy. I am definately looking forward to their return.

Hopefully, it's not going to be just the same name. I've got Tekin equipment from more than a decade ago and they are still working. They should rehire the old Tekin designers.

I'm currently using a G-12c in my car (also got a faulty G9, chasing up seller on that) and love the Tekin. I hope they distribute them in Australia again.

Tekin speedos have a full 6V and 5amp BEC unlike todays measly 5+ something.

I've know of this for some time and am glad it's finnally out!!! For those of you woundering this is the real deal, the new owner has it togerther and everything will be built with the same specs as before. Look for new stuff too. Lets just say that the original owner may have stopped selling but never stopped designing.. Can't wait for new Tekin gear.

I'm very pleased to hear this news, back in the day 17 yrs ago (when I first started), Tekin was the electronics to have. All their stuff was cutting edge, and extremely reliable. The other current top US electronics manufacturer (nameless ) has, In my opinion, become a little stagnent in there product line,while still good, certainly not cutting edge stuff. The current Japanese/German electronics is cutting edge right now. With Tekin back in the game, this will certainly ignite that old sparke of competition here in the US. Cant wait!
