    Default Team Tekin Rage Brushless......Any good?

    Hi -it's time for me to go brushless with my Half8 and since the new rage is now out, I was wondering has anyone tried it!? if so which version should I go for?

    I'm looking to run my brushless on 8 cells, I am particually interested in the rage as it's a direct fit, and you can keep the funny little fake heatsink

    Answers on a postcard please...... (or on here if it's easier!)

    Dont even tell me I'm gonna have to dump my AON4900/Mamba combo for a Tekin! Any thoughts on how it compares?

    dont dump the AON motor. as the motors that come with the mini rage are the same as the mamba motors and are going to over heat. just get the esc if you are going to change

    ...Do they do JUST the ESC? Do we have a price for it?

    Thanks for the input guys. I didn't know the rage motor was the same as the mamba. A bit worried about it getting hot now.....

    I could do a review (if I decide to go for it) but wouldn't have anything to compare it too - what's it like compare to the AON?

    Bithead, I think Tower just list the ESC..... can't remember how much though......

    Keep the comments comming....

    BUY IT! Mine came in Friday and was on the track Saturday. I am running it in the Inferno with 6 cells and went with the 6.8 motor. Perfect! The only upgrade to the drive train was a fiber washer I put between the metal washer and the smaller slipper gear. I found the washers at work and they look and feel like they are made of the same stuff as the larger 1/10 slipper pads. It has the perfect amount of slippage. I let a few of the guys run it who have been running the mambas. They were all impressed, there was no cogging and set-up is very easy. I plan on making an 8 cell and I'll let you know how that works. They do offer everything individually. Check Tower for the prices.
