So why would you buy something that nobody else there runs? Now you have no help with set-up or gearing!!!

Uh... Could it be that Tekin and LRP systems run around and above $300???? Hobbywing runs $150ish.... Seems pretty straight forward to me....

But...if you can't get it to perform, what good is a $150 speedo?

Used Tekins go from $100-$150, even for a Pro series. Best bet!!!

The xerun's are one awesome esc. 10X smoother than a tekin, that is why you would go with that over another esc. Should be a simple task to set it up. I run 3 of these esc's and have had 0 issues and are BUTTER smooth.

In my current class there are two of us running Xerun System and the rest Tekin and Mamba. They have no advantage in their systems.

Hi Big Tee,

You can't go wrong with the 1s unit. Affordable and very fast and they are in stock. Our drivers have place VERY well in National competition with the 120A, 1s unit.

Get the unit and program box, download Hobbywing 1.64 from the www.teamcrc.com site and "upgrade" the software to "930stock". Be sure to turn OFF the voltage protection while on the laptop.

Of course, if you are running "blinky" no timing mode, upgrade to V3_508_No_TIMING software. Again be sure to DISABLE voltage protection while hooked to the laptop.

The world of timing and boost is NOT easy, many variables and adjustments that if done incorrectly, can burn a speedo or motor. You will need to carefully "play" with the settings. Always start with the motor timing near minimum and "creep" up the timing on the motor.

Formula to kill a motor?? Lots of motor timing and speedo timing = cooked brushless.

Have fun.

CRC
