Default Which Motor combo?

I just ordered my 3.0 E and just need advise on which motor / RX8 combo I should buy. I'll mainly be using this on an indoor clay track. From what I have been reading, I should look at the 1900kv or the 2050kv. This is my first electric 8th scale so I need help please thanks!

1900 in my opinion would be best for indoor. It is what I just ordered today for my 3.0 E.

Tekin also makes a T8i motor specifically for indoor racing.

out of the two you listed the 1900 would be better but you might want to look into the t8i motors from tekin

Hey everyone again. I have a great A main video to show you.

This weekend was the futaba electric challenge at my local track leisure hours raceway.

I set TQ and took the win almost lapping the field twice! Car is super hooked up and its going to be a dominant force this winter at my local track.

No need to be on the fence. in fact knock the fence down and buy one. its very worth it.

Ive only been racing cars since this year january. having bought my first ebuggy 3 monthes ago i was asked to run intermediate. Due to lack of experience. Even though on club nights im usually in the top 3 i accepted as a way to prove myself. This I did lol.

Again enjoy. Subscribe, Im looking into a 22 2.0 and whenever TLR finally for the love of small children releases a 4wd buggy. which ill be posting videos. have questions? ask away

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWnAe...ature=youtu.be

if it doesnt work, that means its still processing. check back.

Default pinion gear question

Hi guys just looking for some input as to what pinion you guys recommend with the stock 43t plastic spur gear. i am running a 1900kv on 4s my track is medium with some tight sections low grip. I am using a 15t pinion a the moment and i am getting quite high motor temps.
Cheers
Pegger

I wasn't running box setup no. Some changes I can think of off the top are 5-7-3 diffs. And 30-30 in the front and rear shocks. Some droop was taken out of the front. I run 2 degrees anti squat and 3.5 rear toe
