Default Tekin ESC's

Hi guys i just got a Electric car and it came with a Tekin ESC the model number is TSC 412P and its called a Tekin Speed Star.
I've tried looking on the net but cant find any info on it as i wanna find out what turn motor limit it has. The owner has checked the instruction manual but could not find any info on the motor limit. If the manual does not say what motor limit it has or warned the customer to not use turn motors that are to low does this mean that the ESC is a no limit?
All comment appreciated
Thanks

I wouldn't use any wild winds in it. Nothing lower than a 15 turn or so.

I had a tekin speedo called speedstar or something like that back in `94, blue case.. i used down to 11t motors without problems.. but i know that others had problems with overheating with motors lower than 12t..so if you want to be on the safe side dont go lower than 13t

thanks guys! i actually found out on some website that it is a no motor limit ESC! this one is in a black casing with 10 FETs on top. Only down side with these which i learnt on the website is that it does not have a current limiter.
Thanks for ya guys time once again
Cheers

yep i still have some.. they for the most part are bullet proof... there is alot of top level sponsored oval racers in the us still running them... they were so far ahead of the game then there stuff is still capable of competing with todays standards..

The new Tekin hompage is Team Tekin. I've some old Tekin products and they are still some of the best I've tried.
