TLR looks to be releaseing 4oz shock oil bottles. The TLR diff oil tubes are good for quite a few rebuilds.

Which is why I'm so frustrated by this instance!!

Oh one more thing. If you are running 4 hole 54 pistons you will not have nearly enough pack with those. If you glue two holes closed you are still a little bigger holes then what Ryan and I are currenly running with #55 two hole pistons but 4 hole 54's is not nearly enough piston for this truck.

Also going to run a Savox 1256 servo.

That's exactly what I thought after taking them out and realizing the size difference. I appreciate that Ryan, thanks much for the info.. Had zero idea, but figured something like this had happened on the kitting/packaging side of things.. Thanks sir!

Two holes are glued on each, and I'm running 32.5wt.

Don't let anyone talk you into the 4600kv's :P just my 2c 99.9% of the time you are faster with a dialed in 4k, and it's a little more effecient.
The V3 isnt available just yet according to COBRARACING yet it shows available on Falconsekido so who knows BUT i say go with the SCT Pro or SCT PRO combo since just the esc price is half the price of the V3 esc plus if your running a 4pole you wouldnt need all the extra settings as im very happy with my SCT Pro

I'm sure that is not the case.. but I also doubt your motor is a random off the shelf 4600 tekin either ;P I'd also put u in that .01% of drivers that can do anything they want
There we go...New spokesman/driver for Hobbywing(HWNA). Once you go Hobbywing, u wont go back....lmao

Most pro 4 owners (many other motors in this class too) deal with heat issues, and basically have no choice but to run an rx8 (or similar) esc w/ a limiter just to keep things in check regardless of gear options. You don't need to worry about temps or limiters any of that stuff ever again w/ the hw 4k. Gear 13-16depending on setup your esc/ esc settings and size of track and just smile and race. These really are expected results though with a rotor as big as it is vs. the pro4’s.

It has a different power band w/ more torque for when you need/want it.. subjective of course if you actually like the 'feel'. I've found you can come off a tight turn and be a little off the line and still have the rear needed to nail everything just a little easier than w/ the pro4. You can even adjust in flight a little better if you have a less than perfect take off. This was far more challenging w/ either of the tekins I owned when setup to the 'race settings' to avoid heat issues. For someone who can throw fast laps but may miss a line or two (unlike you guys that nail it every time :P) it can make a big difference through the duration of a race. Top end it will stay with or even walk away from the 4600 depending on setup and with a lower temp.

Please note this is all my opinion, but is supported by my experience w/ all of these choices discussed (actually have tried 12 motors and 5 escs in this truck) over the last few years. Ask others though w/ this setup and see what their thoughts are,, I'd suspect they have had similar results.

V3's have been out since spring, v3.1 is now available with some minor improvements. Agree most are just fine w/ the sctpro.

+1 I need a sponsorship, hook me up!

oh crap....i over looked that, LMAO

But still...if you like more settings for the money the V3 would be good but the SCT pro will do it for most people. I just wish it had more of a power limiter(governed type control) not just the punch...SO a PUNCH control and TOP SPEED? control

I like the quick on power of the punch setting being up...but full power is too much inside and would still like the punch as soon as i hit it but dont want to go 40mph inside and im running a 13t pinion and dont need to go lower

realistically, if you want to spend twice the money on a v3, with more options, just go with a tekin rx8. There's nothing wrong with it, except sct-pro is cheaper and works fine.

I've found the best indoor setting to be 14t with about 82-85% throttle on the Tx. Still have the right amount of punch but the top end is in control, still no heat issues. Then if I need to dial it up a touch quick I can when the track conditions are right.

Did I makes the right move... I am looking to run 4x4 sc this summer, and just ordered a SCTE for $210. Should I have waited for the 2.0?

If you don't buy the TLR tuning kit for the scte 1.0, make sure to at least get

1) front/rear carbon shock towers
2) rear kit of racing springs
3) kit of sway bars

I'd also get three of the new diff cups and just swap them out from day one when you put in your oils and take out the grease. Otherwise it'll be a good truck to you, plenty of tweaks listed on the other 1.0 scte thread.
