Facebook Questions


Jeremy Drey Soldering Question. Do you use any flux when tinning wires or just solder?

Did either of you try the 1up Iron. I bought one, ran it off my Graupner PowerSupply, and honestly I wasn't that impressed although I may just still suck at soldering. 

Pete Phillips Interested to hear plans for Texas!

Bryan Daniels Any setup tips when using an rs pro w/17.5 spec-r in a promod chassis?

Desmond Dailey Do you prefer a sidewinder rail chassis or inline rail chassis???


 Featured Item of the week


Tekin Gen 3 2.5 brushless motor

Tekin’s third generation motors are re-engineered from the ground up resulting in a smaller, lighter and faster sensored motor. On Road or Off, the new GEN3 handles the task in stride, delivering the smooth power across all RPMs that you’ve come to expect from a Tekin motor. Much more than a re-hash and new look, the GEN3 Redline Sensored Motor is now ready for any situation and able to create the speed you need to win.


The GEN3 21.5T, 17.5T and 13.5T are available in an RPM version as well as the standard versions. Designed for applications where higher RPM is more beneficial than torque, these motors are perfect for 1/12 and touring car racing classes.


The GEN3 modified group of motors are custom tuned with rotor sizes to give you the performance needed for your application. The 21.5T down to 8.5T group come standard with 12.5mm performance rotors and the 7.5T to 2.5T group are equipped with a 13mm rotor for that extra torque needed in modified racing.
