    Sold / Found Tekin Pro 4 4600KV

    Ended up being way too much motor for the slash. Was enough to blow out a center diff twice on 2S even with acceleration limiting on the mamba pro. Going to go with a tamer velineon motor. I am the second owner and it has a little wear on the can. (See pics) I can leave or pull the motor...

    New Tekin 1/8 motors coming?

    Are there new Tekin 1/8 (T8) motors coming? I've been wanting to get an RX8 / T8 combo for my 8T but they've been out of stock for 3 months. I see now that there is a new ESC, the RX8 Gen2, coming out right away. Does anyone know if there is a new motor / combo coming too?

    Tekin vs Castle

    I am building a brushless LST2, and its going to be time to pick a ESC/motor combo. I have been looking at the Castle 2200kv combo, and the Teking Rx8 + 1550kv motor or a 1700. I have heard good and bad things about both, and have done countless hours of research. I know that older castle...

    Installing a Tekin T8 Motor, need help!

    So, I am not sure of what to do. Just got a Tekin T8 1900kv motor and need to solder on some wires. What size wire should I use to connect to the ESC? Also, there are solder tabs?? I've never soldered to them. Do I just do it as normal? Thanks so much for your responses! Dave

    Tekin Fx-R Running Hot

    I may answer my own question but..... I'm not sure if escs run hot but a wire removed because of a cc bec instructions has been plugged back into the plug on my rx, do they run hot or do I need to unplug that wire again? If so can I cut it off all together? Thanks
