Default Tekin Rs v222 Problems.

Does anyone else notice the brakes are terrible on version 222?

The speed is great, but smoothness is amazing, i loved being able to pretty much rip on the throttle with comfort of keeping grip on the track with full boost and full turbo and 2 ramp.

but then i hit the hairpin at the end of the straight and with 100% ESC Brake and 100% Transmitter Brake, It Was Just Soft. With 212 I ran 100% ESC and 65% Transmitter Brake and it was still able to lock the tires.

I love tekin but i hate to admit i'd rather run 212 because i like having the stopping power, and knowing how much better throttle control their is in 222 just sucks

Win Loss situation i want a Win Win with Tekin.

You did not mention if you re calibrated your transmitter after loading 222.

I ran 222 last night with a 17.5 duo 3. Breaks were awesome. I actually forgot to re calibrate it to the radio as well.. Very smooth and strong.

Sorry, Yes i did recalibrate multiple times. and also reloaded the 222 software completely on the esc 3 times. i thought at first it was my esc, but then others at the track were complaining to. we had a show of 80+ people and i'd say at least half run tekin and confirmed me + 3 were having these issues.

Not sure what i did wrong though, my cousin said his felt kinda weaker but ok, and my other buddy said his were spot on, both loaded from the same pc i used. i even went to the extent of changing my receiver. I've herd tekin has great tech support (which is why i recently switched to 2yrs ago) but this is my very first issue with my rs. my other rs on 212 and rs pro on 212 and rx8 are still solid

One thing that just crossed my mind. last summer racing indoor offroad. i noticed my buddy's tekin kept shutting down and powering back up and his esc was coming off at over 160. he was running a high voltage servo and it was overworking the built in bec. my servo is not a high voltage servo, but it is meant for a 1/8 E-buggy (which i use it in every summer) maybe the rx8 bigger bec can handle it but not the rs. so when i hit the brakes and turn its causing it to over work? but i do regular after race temp checks. i average esc 90* give or take and motor 143-140* just throwing out ideas in text till i think of something

This is the perfect place(RcTech) for this question. You will get many more responses on here.

As a matter of fact I suggest you start the same tread in the off-road section and get their opinion too.

yes people from tekin come on the site, randy i am sure will chime in.

i dont run onroad, however, my experience testing 222 was that the brakes were far smoother than 212....this is in a 2wd offroad application though

Thank you!!! I thought I was the only one!!! I don't have any highspeed brakes either. The ESC and programing are perfect in every other way excecpt the brakes at the end of the straight. It will be interesting to see what Randy has to say.

If you are having braking issues with 222 I want you to do the following:

After the update, perform a factory reset.

Install your esc setup via the hotwire,etc.

Calibrate your radio with 100/100 on the epa's. Radio calibrate.

Test your brakes.
