HotBodies premounts work fine for me, as do Panther, Losi 2.0 and TLR 3.0 wheels.

For indoor running with the Tekin T8i I am running dual shorty packs Venom 3800mah 60C. I can run 10 min mains no problem.

If you are running outdoors or longer mains go with a more traditonal setup.

Part numbers may be different cause of the thread pitch on the inner balls.time to experiment

Hey guys. Quick question, the track I'm gunna run my buggy at is limiting the class to 2s. Could it be done with like a tenshock motor ( kv???) and a large 2s pack. Right now I have a Tekin g2 with the 1900 on 4s and it's great. Any info would be great! Thanks and yes I am trying to avoid completely buying a scte and converting that.....

I have yet to understand why people do this. 2s Battery limits on a 7+ pound vehicle is one of the dumbest things ever thought of.

Must be a small indoor track? We're not even allowed to run 1/8th at our indoor track with any battery. To many have been injured marshaling. Mainly speaking of a fella that got 5 staples in his head due to an 1/8th scale. We are trying to get an SC conversion 1/8th started though?

At any rate add me to the E, 3.0 club. Just picked it up today. Any tips?

So is it do-able or no? Yeah a smaller indoor track for the most part. But not too small and I agree this is not what I want to do, it's just I want to race and it's the only way they will let us (4pole motor on 2s).

If you can get your hands on a 5200 Tenshock it may be do able? I'm think go with as big a spur as possible to start with. Or if you can find out from the fellas already running that set up? Start a thread. Gearing will be critical. Or an SCTE 2.0 Mip conversion and your set...

For battery suggestions I run Hyperion 5000mah 25c soft packs with a 1900kv motor. They are top quality cells and weigh less than a traditional hard case pack.

On the 2s question, a track in IL does this in the winter time. When I was there I saw a whole lot of Castle 2200kv truggy motors in e-buggy that were geared to the moon. See the RJD thread in the IL state forum. You'll probably get some good answers there.
