The entire gear set for the PS-2015 is no longer available. If you only want to replace the 1st gear (gear connecting to the servo motor) it is the same as the PS-2173/PDS-2143,2343,2365. If you want to upgrade the entire gears to the metal type, you will need to send it in for repairs. This will require replacing the servo case, pot and gears.

So I'm confused.
Does the Twister 2.1 Carbon have a cutoff temp or not?
Can that be changed using the programmer or does it have to be done by a pro?

Yes it has a cutoff temp
slightly higher than V2.0
and cannot be changed.
like the 2.0 it can be dissabled by cutting a jumper wire inside the board.

Ok, because the supplement notice inside the ESC says:
"Because this product is designed for racing competition, it is NOT equipped with the thermal protection circuit. It is likely to ignite by the paradox and the overload of the power supply"
Why not just say it has a higher cutoff temp?

scooby-
It is probably a misunderstanding. The thermo cutt is higher, but if it ignites or becomes damaged, it most likely will not be repairable. That is what it basically says on the VFS-1 Pro Competition versions.

Welcome to the wonderful world of "Japanese" english, also known as "lost in translation". The instructions for KO stuff can be a bit wonkie. For example:

"Warning! If the polarity of the shotki diode is connected incorrectly, repairing it might become impossible."

or my favorite, found on the header cards on the parts bags

"make you exciting spirit"

I normally have to read through the instructions two or three times, then ask myself, "what are they trying to tell me here?"

BTW, great equipment though, once you get the hang of understanding (and using) the MSA. I did run into a problem with my VFS-1 (it was something I did to it) and Robert was able to take care of it quickly.

It makes me wonder about all those japanese characters people get tattooed to themselves!
What we think means "modified",
probably means "alterations"
All these japanese people stare at you funny because they think you own a dry cleaners!
Oh, well. Thanks for the Twister info.
BTW, they are on sale right now at Tower. $149 plus $20 bucks off!
You cant beat $129 for a Twister 2.1

It's already in my bookmarks. Some of those posts they have are a riot. If any of you haven't checked it out yet, do so.

Or perhaps the guy who thinks he's getting "modified" tattooed on the back of his neck, turns out in kanji, the correct translation means "neutered".

Ok, so do you have to get the multi setting adapter and card to make changes to Ko servos and ESC's?
Or
can you just get the PC interface and use the programs online to make the changes?
Is the adapter for those who cannot use the PC or do you have to have the adapter to use the pc interface?
I guess what I am trying to get at is I would rather use the computer than buying the Multi Setting Adapter.
Also I noticed, A 9 pin serial connection???
Will the wire be available in USB?

Hebiki is your man to ask for these q, but i will try my best.

I have the computer connector for it. Works great, gives you nice visualization as to what's going on. Downside, if you don't have a labtop, can't do settings when you are at the track.

For the computer, you can find a 9-pin serial <--> usb connector. Everything should be good after that. If you can't find one...
you can get 2 connectors. A 9-pin serial <--> ps2 serial and a ps2 serial <--> usb connector.

In the long run, the PC adapter is the cheaper way to go if you have a laptop. The reason I say that is because, software for anything new will be able to be downloaded from our website. Example only an example, if we were to come out with a new esc and it had a programming option, you would be able to download the software. If you had the multi setting adapter, you would need to buy the new card.

rcnewb2004 is correct that you will need to get a seriel to USB adapter to use the PC interface if your computer does not have a seriel port.
