For everyone to see because I'm no fanboy of anyone. You all know I have been singing Tekin praises and I may continue pending the warranty process, but it bit the dust yesterday.
Description of the problem:
My RX8 will not power up. I have tested all solder joints and resoldered a few. I plug the ESC up to my hotwire and it will not power up (it was powering on fine yesterday) I have used batteries only over 150 amps usually around 200+ amps. I use the ESC in my E-Revo with the T8 motor. I can not get power doing anything. Before this power incident happened I was have issues with ESC already. Just yesterday after a few speed runs the esc start cogging very bad when any resistance was applied. For example, if I held the car up and was very easy on throttle I could get it to top speed, but if I just instantly hit full throttle it would cog very badly moving around 5 mph top speed. If I set the car on the ground it would cog badly doing any type of throttle and today it won't power up. I went the Tekin route because my MMM puffed black smoke right after I received my new E-Revo and I have had the Tekin setup for about 3-4 months and have loved it. I hope you will take care of this issue.
