So this is why you walk by everyone on the track lol, just kidding.. I've used a rs in the beginning of this season and for the last couple of races lrp tc spec v2 with updated board and still like the rs better for some reason.. Sure a lot of people are gonna take shots at me for saying that... Definitely can't wait for the new one

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.
Been running them for 5 years never had this issue. Maybe your rs has a issue. But I can tell u if feels real good in 1s.

All points of interest have been improved. Throttle feel, response, smoothness, mid range,etc have all been improved.

I do have to ask.. seems like many of the listed features are minor improvements. could the "feel" of the esc not have been made better simply with different software on the existing RS?
I really dont have many complaints about my RS systems in my cars. in blinky i seem to have plenty of power available, though in boost, i find the midrange a little lacking. seems like the esc can dump in lots of amps, so is there going to be continued development to older rs systems as well as the new ones? will they run the same software downloadable? I guess hotwire software will require an update, and will it require updating all my legacy tekin hardware once updated?

ill only have one legacy rs as i just sold two so i could get one of these new ones.. which.. i hope show up on etailers before the outdoor season starts middle april.

Feel can be a hardware thing as well. When I did mini-z, we played around with the fets on the board a lot (they only use 4 and are easier to swap there than on a 1/10 esc ), some fets were punchy, some fets were smoother, some more power, etc.

Is it improved over a current rs with 223 or is it improved over an out of the box rs?

It is better than 223. I've driven the RS/RSG2 back to back in the same car and it's a completely different ESC. The feel is amazing, very smooth and linear. Trust me guys, it's well worth it!

At this time there is no plan on offering a trade in or upgrade program.

Wow. The 408S was the first ESC I purchased way back in 1994 (yes, I used MSCs until then). Brings back memories......
