I fully support the Tekin model of constant product improvement via a free, simple firmware update that doesn't require buying a new ESC. Still have my RS since they first came out. Still works great.

I'll also admit that 1/12 scale 17.5 blinky is pretty boring. Just pull full wood for 90% of the lap and steer, with a mild lift in one or two corners.
Have I told you lately, how much I love you?

Well that settles it, for the IIC I will have to do mod touring car, maybe all three classes of 1/12 to, and if she's there hopefully I can out-qualify an 11 year old.

Well, I have a few months to get it ready. I may not get a chance to test it though, my local HS isn't conducive to meaningful testing being done on touring cars.
Shopping list: New bearings, diff balls, diff rings, outdrives, gears, belts, body, drive pins, tires.....
