The Tekin HotWire is a powerful, must-have device if you own a Tekin ESC or Servo! Unlock all the settings and the ability to create, save and load custom ESC Profiles. You have access to our library of track-tested Team Driver setups, giving you a great place to start with a setup. Check out where to find Team Driver setups and how to load them directly into your ESC!
All HotWire versions can be used to create, save and load custom ESC Profiles.
Brake Frequency changes the pulse width being applied during braking. In general higher frequencies provide a softer brake power and feel with a more usable range of trigger motion, allowing for better brake modulation while keeping full brake power overall. Lower frequency gives more aggressive brakes with a stronger overall feel.
Brake Frequency can be adjusted through the HotWire device on a PC, and some Apple and Android devices.
Throttle Minimum is the minimum throttle power the ESC will apply to the motor when the user induces a throttle application. If you want a stronger initial throttle and higher motor start up RPM, use a higher value. Use a lower value or 0 to have a softer throttle and lower motor start up RPM. For Spec racing, higher values will increase the punch feel.
Throttle Minimum can be adjusted through the HotWire device on a PC, and some Apple and Android devices.
The JBRL Nitro Series just completed its 17th season. With an average of nearly 250 entries per event, it is easy to understand why the JBRL Nitro Series is the most popular racing series in the nation. The JBRL series visited 6 tracks this year throughout California to test the skills of its competitors over a wide range of track conditions.
Adam Drake was the big winner taking home three championships in Expert Nitro Buggy, Expert Nitro Truck, and Electric Buggy.
Thank you to Jimmy Babcock and the entire JBRL crew for a successful series. We hope to see everyone soon at the races!
Back to work on the 2021 Bronco project! Bumpers, shock towers, skid plates, an awesome lighting system and body work. I chose a color and even had a custom graphic made by SOR Racing to finish off the look I was after. Clear windows from TAN woodworks allow for a more realistic look and I’ll be able to show off the interior.Continue reading
Reverse Speed allows you to set how fast your reverse is. The default on most of our ESCs is about 35% but you can change it to whatever you’d like it to be with the HotWire!
Reverse Speed is only available through the HotWire software.
I hope you at least watched some of part 1 so you know what went into making this kit suitable for some off-road action! I’ll keep this short, it’s more fun to just watch the video.Continue reading
HotWire 15.40.9 introduces Power Profiles, yet another tuning option for your Tekin ESC. The Power Profiles allow you to manipulate the esc output vs the trigger position (radio signal). By doing so, you have full control over the trigger-to-motor relationship throughout the full range of the throttle. Add up to 64 control points from 1% to 100% throttle and move each point up or down to change the ESC output at that throttle percentage and move each point sideways to control the radio throttle percentage at that ESC output.Continue reading
