I'll gladly test an RX8 / SC4X (4.5t) combo here in Australia if you need guinea pigs !!

Cheers

4.5 turn is around 5000kv. 5.5 turn is around 4000kv. Both are very timing dependent.

Should be listed on many of the online sites this week. Dealers can also place orders with the distributors starting this week

alright so if the rspro and the rx8 can both run them, than what advantage does one have over the other? Even if it does not deal with the sc4x.

Will the 4.5t run 3s lipo ?

What sort of power ratings do they have ?

Novak Ballistic 550 sized motors are causing issues when matched with the Mamba Max Pros (bec related)

Has any testing been done with your ESC's ?

Cheers

I love the speed of my new novak 4.5 but man it's killing ESC's around here. The only one that's holding up is the Tekin RS pro I just put in. I've seen 3 brand new MMP's go and a traxxus VXL go. The vxl was running great with the stock 3500 motor. We put the new ballistac 4.5 in it and she dumped out second lap. That the frig is up novak... I can't wait for this new motor. I love the speed and power of the 4.5 but the 5.5 at 4000kv sounds awesome. I think these new motors are gonna dominate the market... Good for you Tekin.

Tekin, what would you recommend for gearing to start with?

4x4 Slash, RX-8, 3s Life pack (9.9v), and the SC4X 5.5 motor.

I've got a 200' straight to deal with, so I need to keep some decent speed. Right now 13/54 on the Velineon 3500 is fast, so I'm guessing 12/54 with this motor, or 12/50? Just need to know which pinions to start with since I'm jumping to 5mm pinions. I know the torque is going to be crazy, so I'll probably have the RX-8 cranked back as far as possible.

Any update on when the new SC4X motors will be shipping? I have 5.5 pre-ordered with Tower Hobbies.

ok.. so today my nephew hooked up my battery backwards and roasted either my mmp or my hv4.5... or possibly both in my slash 4x4.

anyway.. i have an available rx8 and i'm looking at picking up scx4 (prolly the 4.5) to match it with, but all my batteries are 2s. how will this combo perform of 2s ? and when will we see these available ?

My LHS has one of these on order for the Hyper 10SC and can't wait to run it at the Golden state SCT race in Aug. I have the RX8 in mine and have used the RSP in there with a 6.5 with not many problems. I did get some thermalling but the cap came unsoldered and that was it's issue. Other than that I am happy with all Tekin products and will continue to buy them because they are the best around.

I want one and maybe two if I pick up a truck for my bro to run. These are the best.
