That match has worked out fairly well for my use, which is mostly tearing up the woods, and occassionally racing. I woulden't mind having a little more power and control in the motor department. Thinking about the Tekin 4 pole or maby the revtech 4 pole. Which one is better for this car? Or is another motor out that is better?
Hobbywing 3656sd(sensored) 4000kv or the 4700kv

Default Sensor Wire Length

Okay so I ordered a 200mm sensor wire for this build, and its way too short. The perfect length to go from my RX8 to PRO4 was 275mm. I'll attach the pictures showing how the wires were routed.

Little known fact the wheel pins are the same as the CVD coupler pins so you can use them interchangeably and swap out the wheel ones for the CVD axle pins when the axle pins start to wear.

Looks like you have a lot of slack in the wire.

so is that the 275mm wire installed or the 200mm?

Also, is the alum steering arm included in the kit?

With the 275mm, there is slack. The 200mm won't reach my esc even if I didn't run it through that wire tunnel on top of the center diff. The rest of my wires only have about 1/2 inch or less of slack. If I run a 550 can motor, my "C" pole wire may be too short.

How much are you guys paying for your kits? I ordered one from my LHS, but they still weren't sure what the final price was going to be.

So would a 250mm be a safe compromise for this truck?

I would ask Ryan or Casper about the r10 pro.I think one of them is sponsored by Orion.I know for awhile they were waiting for a update on the software before the r10 could handle the 4 poles correctly.I forget where I read this but I Definately came across it somewhere.So don't pull the trigger until u ask about it.
