I am running my TT with a Tekin RS Pro and a 6.5 (smaller 540 motor) . Plenty of power and light weight.

I'm running a 4.5 HV ballistic in my TT & lovin' it. Plenty of speed with a 12 tooth pinion, gobs of torque, & I can run pack after pack with NO heat issues.

Pushin' it with a Castle MMP. Had to mount it on top of the servo plate, wouldn't fit under the body mounted on top of the center diff. I like this placement though. Puts the esc weight low & forward compared to mounting it on the diff plate.

Hub to hub (end points), the ten-t is les then 10 1/2 width. So probably less than 3/4 in difference total.

Thanks for showing that email response, helps make my choices a bit easier. Looks like the 550 motors would be more efficient= cooler temps. Weight would be my only concern.

No problems with MMP's with these motors? They seem to work ok on my 1/8 stuff though.

How are your temps with the 540 6.5? How's the RS Pro holding up?

The new thing on the car are the pillow balls if you have'nt noticed they have a flange at the end of the treading that's there to prevent the ball from popping the treads and going inward in the event of side impact and causing the threads to drive inward and getting more than you want camber. The other thing I have done was move the bat. tray foward it has helped the rear end bucking and gives me more free space to mount my esc on the other side rather on top center diff, it's too close up there and I'm afraid if I case a jump right on the top of the body then my esc will absorb a critcal hit and may not last in the long run. I need to post a pic so I will do this very soon.
On the manual, it shows that the center diff has 5k oil already in it. Is it a misprint?

When you moved the battery tray forward, did you have to drill new holes for it's new location or is it adjustable stock?

Any way you can post some factory set-ups(with better detail than in the manual) for the local like WCRC and OCRC?

Thanks

Temps were fine....I did cut out the front winshield to let more air flow over the speedo...We ran it for 12 minutes without a problem.

A ton of great info here! I will be getting one of these asap!

1 quick question, is it easy to get to the motor mount screws to adjust gear mesh, it looks a little tight from what I have seen, thanks!

Ordered mine, should be here this week. Thinking about the Novak hv 4.5 motor, did they have issues with the Silver version of the motor? Wondering because i almost only see the black version for sale now.

Good deal, just ordered the 4.5 SC version of that system. Im thinking of a 12 or 13t pinion for the setup.

What kind of temps are you seeing at the motor and esc? Are you using the external heat sink on the motor?

Can these keep up with 4wd 1/10 buggies? Those things are so super quick and nimble but very fragile.
