I currently run a tekin RS in blinky 17.5 touring car. Im curious if others have tried the R10 and if its worth upgrading?

Both are quality esc's. I like the settings box feature with my r10 at the track.

If you don't have any problems with it, then no

For blinky there is no point as there is no real advantage.

Didn't think that blinky would make a difference....switched from the tekin to an orca and I couldn't be more pleased! I always felt that 17.5's had a big dead spot in them until I changed speedo's.

I did in my 12th scale. Switched from an RS, and a RS Pro to an R10. And I love the Pro10. No stupid boosters or receiver pack's and such a smooth feel of power.

R10 or a Hobbywing V3. Much nicer than the aging Tekin IMO. You could switch just for the breaking feel alone, and it would be worth it.
