Hey, I'm looking to get an E-3.0 buggy. A local shop has recommended this motor TenShock 6 pole sensored X812L 2450kv or 2850kv. I've never heard of TenShock before. Anyone here have any experience with it?

I've tried the 550can 4600kv sensored 4pole motor in my MIP SCTE and I like how much power it put out. On the other hand, I didn't like how much battery it killed in a heat race. I don't have anything bad to say about it other than it draws a lot of battery power.

Tenshock are great motors. I've been running both the X812 1900Kv and X802 v2 1850kv for about a year now, never had a problem with them.

The X812L you mentioned is a Truggy motor, wouldn't recommend it for buggy.

2450kv? Is your track a football field? That's way to much. 1900-2100 is all you need. Inless your bashing. Which if your spending 700 on a basher buggy then I want your job

hahahahahahaha didn't even pay attention to the KV rating. But you're absolutely right. That's WAY too much motor and only need like a 1900kv motor.

+ YouTube Video

This is the track I run at. This was my first outing with my 3.0 nitro. It is a good size track.

ok so it is a football field. well alright then. lol that track is awesome man lol. but i still feel you will be better off with a 1900-2100 kv motor. the 2400+ stuff is just obnoxious. i cant tell you how many people bought a massive motor only to realize its over powered and actually hurting them. just my two sense. up to you. awesome video!

heres my track with a 1950kv motor. im the front car tlr e3.0

I can attest to the 2450 being waaaay to hard on the car. pinions only lasted 2 race days... jumps were easier to make with a 1900.

Speed passion Blaze 2450 for sale $60 3 races on it

I agree that motor's KV is way too high. I'm not sure we he would recommend it. Anyway what is the consensus of Tenshock motors? Tekin is not available here. For a place where a lot of RC stuff is made (Taiwan) you be surprised on how hard it is to get this stuff. It's all word of mouth and I know a guy who knows a guy.
I found a guy, a great guy who sells Tenshock and Castle Mamba's and that's it, as far as I know.

Nice driving! My video has more tumbles than a Gymnastics class for nine year-olds.

Maybe you could try posting a thread under the "Radio and Electronics" section, might get better results.

I fully agree that the 3.0 doesn't need these alum bits. The reason I asked is because in the beginning of the thread there is a converted nitro 3.0 with alum rear hubs, this is why I asked because I saw them on there.

2.0 Rear hubs fit the 3.0. They did not change them from what I understand. The front end stuff is all new though.
