First RX8 finally went up in smoke - 02.19.2012, 11:41 PM

My first RX8 that I did a review on, finally went up in smoke tonite. My Gensace batts puffed up too. So I'm thinking my batts caused the mishap. Sad day.

So what is the rumor of Tekin coming up with a new RX8??

Yes it did man. It will be missed. I replaced it with a Mamba Monster last nite. Good part was the Mamba Monster has mo' power. Bad part is, MMonster coggs way too much at startup compared to the Tekin pulling the same gear ratio in sensorless mode.

Yea, the rig was saved. I reconfigured the puffy batteries into 3s packs today. I'll use them for low amp stuff from now, untill they give up the ghost. They still take 4500mah.

Glad to hear that you saved you ride. I haven't gotten up the ambition to disassemble a lipo yet and reconfigure it.

Glad to hear you saved the rest of the car Romano.

That looks like it was a good size fire.

How long have you had that RX8 for?
