Not sure... we have them in stock and sounds like some of our dealers and distributors need to order them. Sometimes we do have Scratch and Dent motors on our cart that typically just have flaws in the appearance, anodizing and etching., or an actual scratch.

Looking for some ideas on BOOST figured if I high lighted that,its just about that and is it possible to over boost, years ago running pro2 truck we ran 10.5 motors and boost around 25-30 and no turbo at all and cars where plenty fast and today we are running 4x4 buggy (wheeler) and stadium 13.5 truck on carpet off-road 40x80 track and lap times around 18 seconds, so this past weekend ran a new motor and boost in my wheeler was at 40_ and with a tekin 10.5 gen 2 and went with a new r1wurks motor and 3 minutes esc was hot to the point of shutting down even with a fan rs gen 2, geared down 6 teeth and temps still at 160 at 4 minutes and motor is 100 with boost at 20, so are today a motors really not liking boost or is it possible to over boost and my stadium is fast but lack brakes tried emails and all kinds of reaching out but crickets and brakes at 100 and still 15 feet before anyone else is braking I have to be on them to make the corner and that causes the motor to run hot 170 with a fan
I know 2 questions but any ideas on what to try as I am 130 miles to the track so practice days are limited and race days are busy with 4 classes, but any ideas would be greatly appreciated my cars are the tekno eb410 old version 19/81 with the r1 10.5 motor and 25/81 with tekin 10.5 gen 2, more notes with the tekin motor I would run out of battery at 5:20 mark if I was on it the entire main and bigger battery would be nice but this is a 6000 r1
So thoughts

So I've got this Kyosho RZ6... It's an oddball buggy. Been trying to make it work with a RS Gen2/Redline Gen3 17.5. car is just an utter pig. Figure I'll turn it into a mod buggy as it seems to have been designed with mod in mind.

My questions are.. Can I safely run an 8.5 on that RS Gen2 ESC? Would I be better off purchasing an RSX? I'm worried about ESC temps being that the Gen2 doesn't have a way to mount a fan to it I'm aware of.

I know Tekin's website claims the limit for the Gen2 is 8.5 @ 2S. Slightly nerve-racking knowing I'd be running the ESC at it's absolute limit, this my question.

Thanks for any help or input.

I have run my rs gen2 with an 8.5 in my sc with 25 degrees boost, outdoors with no over heating issues. If your geared and boosted correctly you should be fine with what you have

Anyone running a RSX ESC having problems coming to a complete stop? The brakes work fine stopping from top speed, but almost feels like 1/4 brake when stopping from a crawling pace 5-10mph

With latest Hotwire software there is a rpm brake feature, which boosts low speed braking. I had to ask - not in videos at the time

Can a 1S pro be used for 17.5 2S? ORCA used to be that way but I'm not sure about the tekin.

Hi all,
Do you know what is rx8 gen3 fan black plug type?
It's like a servo plug, but smaller.
