It's been the same speedo since 2008. What other product has been out that long and still competitive and don't charge for updates. That's right none. Trust me guys well worth the wait, it's a very good speedo. Great throttle feel and very smooth. Some things never change with al dente.

There's a reason Tekins' have held their resale value

I don't run them anymore, but this statement is spot on. I sold mine off WAY too inexpensively.

Now that we'll be seeing a 1s version I may come back. An ESC that small with a built in booster would be a perfect fit in my Xti.

8.5 motor limit makes this pretty useless for me as of now, but I assume the pro will support mod motors.

From the mod thread apparently the Pro can't support mod tc but is ok for 1/12 mod. Hopefully the new one can support both!

They need to offer an aluminum case for those that want to run Mod TC there's no other way to make it run cooler, physics people. It can do it today but it does get very hot unless you can get fans mounted correctly.

A fan pointed at the posts does quite a lot for temps. Was the difference in finishing a race and thermaling my rspro in mod tc. With fan it was fast and strong.

My only question is...can we get something other than white for a case color? That's going to change to some funky colors with the outdoor racing we do out here.

Ty said you will be able to get a black case as well.

I will get a 1S RS when it comes out. My Hobbywing 1S is great but its just so freaking big.

Has Tekin address the start up lag during race starts? That's the biggest difference I feel between my RS Pro and my Hobbywings. If the driver in front of me has a Tekin I can pass him before the first corner almost 100% of the time. No matter the setting I try, new sensor cables, etc... the HW speedo starts up faster.

Note this is in 1/12 and WGT running 1s. Tekin with the newest Novak Booster/ HW with the built in booster.
