Hey guys I'm after some advice on my motor/esc. I've just completed my first kit build (SCTE 2.0) which I gotta say was a pleasure to build! Top quality product, can't wait to run it!

I've just finished installing a Tenshock 120A ESC and Tenshock SC401 3800kv motor. I have soldered the wires and installed the receiver etc. I hooked everything up and switched on the whole show. I have bound the radio and the servo works fine. But pull the trigger and nothing from the motor. Am I missing something totally obvious guys???

Could it be: incorrect wire positions/new battery not charged enough? (Wasn't totally charged but I plugged it in just to test if things were working)

I'm new to this and like I said, this is my first build so it could be something simple and dumb, please help guys, anything would be appreciated! (No LHS in my town!)

Things to check:
- have you calibrated the ESC to the radio?
- does the ESC have any green/amber/red blinking status lights to tell you what is going on? (read the manual to find out what they mean)
- since it is a sensorless system, it is less likely that connecting up the wires correctly would be a problem, but double check.

I just got a Hitec HS7955tg servo for my truck and quickly figured out the stock servo horn set up can't handle that kind of torque. I want to get an aluminum clamp style horn but I am not sure which one. My LHS does not have what I need so I have to buy online and hope it's the right size. Any suggestions?

A lot of us use this horn and use the inside hole.

Or this one works well also with some extra clearance.

Why do you use the inside hole instead of the outside hole?

Out side hole can make the steering feel a little more twitchy.

that may explain some of the twitchness I feel with my SCTE. I use the hot racing 3 hole aluminum steering arm and the steering feels extremely twitchy. thanks for the info
