I have had no issue indoors or outdoors clearing any jumps. Just like a 4 pole just way smoother. I would not suggest the 4300 as it is way too much motor for this truck. My buddy had one and sold it after a couple weeks even had it turned down to 35 percent in the esc.

That is pretty close to what i am running settings wise. I have more brake added. I have an associated heat sink on the motor and after 8-10 minutes comes off at 140 degrees.
Whelp you answered my question in a good way, i use every bit of my pro4 4600. Sounds like the pro4 hd 4300 is what i'm looking for.

Well i went for the Hobbywing sct pro combo with the 4000kv motor, but i said hell with it could not resist the urge, had to find out for myself i ordered the SMC 4500 too, i can always use it on bigger outdoor tracks. plus i needed to order a couple more batteries anyways so it was a good excuse to order it.

Thats a great esc thats for sure. The 4000 might be a little underpowered on a outdoor track. But that 4500 should go pretty good. These things can handle gobs of power. If your having trouble putting it down then look into different tires or altering your setup. My truck gets around the track better then most 1/8 buggies at our local track.

I've ran that motor with a 13t pinion on a small to med indoor track and it was good. You could probably do a 14t no problem. That's with no timing in the esc. If you want to run timing then a 12 or 13 would be a good place to start. The 2 pole motors respond better to timing than 4 poles in my experience. And they're much easier on batteries.

Hi Guys - A few weeks ago I started a new group on FB for the SCTE and SCTE 2.0. It is called SCTE Territory. Check it out when you have a chance, and ask to be added.

You should be happy with that set. I don't know anything about the SMC motors, but I sure love my HW XERUN 4700.
Contrary to what people will tell you, the HW motors like taller gearing than what a lot of people tend to run. I have seen and read about people running upto 18T pinions and still maintaining cool temps. Some argue that it's due to not peaking out the RPMs for extended periods of time on long straits, but you do have to be more conscience of to much top end on real loose tracks. Lower gears are better for technical tracks with short jump entries after turns, but do experiment.

Sweet! I joined. What is your game plan with the new page? Are you planning on doing some personal write ups, setups, etc?

Expo and initial acceleration setting go a long way in taming this out.
However I don't understand why more radio companies don't introduce addressable curve points like you find in air radios.
I for one would love it if my radio could have a multi-point curve ability.
That would make it possible to have S curve with an initial negative to a positive line.
The level of dial-in would be very buttery and have impeccable feel

Yep I run expo for my ebuggy so I know all about it. I like to be smooth and consistent. Also, I figure if someone like Dakotah Phend is dominating with a 2 pole there must be some merit to it, mind you a pro could drive anything. A couple local TLR guys are the ones who introduced me to the two poles after they started dominating. One even TQed over Matt Olson at the CRCRC Midwest Race. One thing I will say it did not work well with an RX8, you need a 1/10 scale esc hence the reason for the orion R10 Pro.

Tekin ESC with Hotwire and you can make that curve
