Not released yet. They keep pushing the date back—now it's "early Februsary." I guess we'll see on that one. They have been saying "end of this month" since September... I gave up on waiting and bought a Novak.
I never said the novak was unproven. I run one myself. I havent run a tekin or run for tekin since the early 1990's . What I am saying is.. If there is a delay Im sure there is a reason for it.. Id prefer to have a delay over say>>>>what happened to 2 of my cars due to initial faulty spektrum antennae design.
Agreed. Send incomplete and untested products to the market too soon, and you may as well be called Microsoft.
However, if you are a company with a strong following like Tekin, stop advertising and promoting products that you are unable to deliver when you say. The "artwork" and specs on these speedos has been around since before the Chicago Hobby Show last fall, and Tower and other retailers have had them listed for months now. They keep pushing these back further and further, and are starting to sound like Losi.
Beginning of February is almost the end of the winter season, and no one has still seen a live, working product. They don't even have their case shapes determined yet. They have been teasing me for months, and my patience has run out. I love Tekin products, but it was time to fish or cut bait...
When I talked to Sonny last he said that they would not be legal for THIS yr. BUT once he gets access to one to test then he would make a decision for next yr. That is what I was told a couple wks ago at least.
My LIMITED understanding of it was that the tekin is a SENSORLESS controller.. So in theory you could get more aggressive with the timing and peak rpm etc..Im a newb on BL..but that was how I understood it to be..
I've been in direct contact with Tekin, They refused to release the first batch of ESC's due to the 2000 boards that wer'nt right! As a team driver for them there's no one more anxious then I am specially with the snowbirds right around the corner!! lol Sounds to me like the first you'll see of them will be at the Birds, Like said in above post...I'd rather it take longer, just as long as there right. ZUBAK.
(Note: The BRL will review Impact parts for approval in April and September of each year. New ESC’s will be evaluated over this season and may gain approval for the Sportsman Stock and Pro 4300 in April 2007
