Let’s talk shims! Shimming. No, it’s not a dance move, I’m talking about positioning the rotor in your brushless motor and limiting its lateral movement using shims.

It’s not always perfect, so like gapping your spark plugs (yes you should) even though they are pre-gapped, you should shim your rotor (yes you should) even though it is pre-shimmed.Continue reading

Calibrating the ESC to your radio is a 100% necessary procedure! This ensures that you are getting full throttle and full brake/reverse when using your ESC. Improper calibration can lead to some odd behavior and can prevent settings like Drag Brake and Turbo from working properly. You should radio calibrate anytime you:
- First install a new Tekin ESC.
- Flash the firmware in the ESC.
- Replace a receiver.
- Change a radio or set to a different model on the radio.
