Do they have an upgrade program? I have a non-working Tekin RS that has been sitting around I wouldn't mind trying Tekin again.

Not sure. This is what Randy at Tekin said directly in one of the Gen2 threads.

I sold all my RS's as soon as I heard the new Gen2 was going to be released.

Raced the Gen1 RS in 13.5 TC this past weekend
Been using it for so long in 12th, I almost forgot it works in 2s too

With all the updates, it ran great, cool, smooth, fast, tons of brakes, even at 60%

Waiting for the Next gen Pro type Tekin, for mod sedan
How much longer....

Go with Tekin.

I've tried going to LRP. Died on me in one month and it took 4 months for them to replace.

I see the new 1/8th ESC is right around the corner...hopefully that means a 1s version will be soon.

I see in the pic posted above there are numbers shown on every curve. When I playback on my rs gen 2 I can not figure out how to show the numbers. It makes the info pretty much useless. What am i doing wrong?
