I have an LRP Flow also, it's been with LRP for repairs for two weeks with crappy communication. No clue when I'll have it back.

I like the Hotwire interface, and from what I've heard, Tekin has awesome service.

I'm really excited for this ESC, I just want a rough estimate of when it'll become available. I have dollas.

The release says its based off the RS Gen 2, I have it and it works really well. The brakes are awesome throttle feel is top notch. I sent a RS in for work a couple years ago, I paid extra to get two day shipping, and had it back in about one week. If you need customer service there is none better.

LRP was very fast to respond to emails before I sent my speedo in, but since they've had it, very slow/no updates. They're "waiting on inventory" was rhe last I heard 4 days ago.

Anyway, can't wait for this esc.

The Pro2 will work on the RSX. They critical factor will be the model/car weight. Keeping in line with the 4lb car limit an RSX and Pro2 in a 2wd will work just fine.

The team is all running the RSX this week at worlds. Any ETA info will be shared after the event is over. What you see in all the media coverage is production unit save for some fan shroud parts.

I'll share some data logs of their performance once I get the thumbs up from the boss if some of you are interested to see where Lutz, JR Mitch and the rest of the team is running temp wise. FYI, both of those guys are using 5.5's in 4wd mod buggy.

As always team drivers will get this equipment before public release so if you have a team driver check out his/her car as most will be getting them shortly after Worlds.

Whats the "Worlds Kit" (TT3833) listed in the manual? Is it the same fan and shroud that comes with the RSX just sold separate? Or is it different somehow?

It will be a 10mm thick fan, new spacers and screws to work with the existing shroud. Stock fan is 7mm.

Default Worlds Performance

Thanks guys,
The RSX was amazing for me at the Worlds. Tekin has done their homework on this one and the RSX is a first class Speed Control! Smooth power delivery, cool temperatures all weekend, and flawless performance. That about sums up my experience with the new RSX! Can't wait for it to be released so everyone can begin enjoying it!
-Ryan

That's where he lives currently, yes.

I was extremely happy with the RSX this weekend. The performance was awesome, temperatures were very cool and the team had nothing but good things to say about them.
