Default Tekin ROC 412 in a Slash 4x4 ?

I have recently bought a used Slash 4x4 and it has a Tekin ROC 412 3100kv motor with a Mamba Max Pro ESC. From what I understand this is a crawler set up in a stadium truck but I want to start racing the stadium truck class. Will I ruin this motor if I race it? What will happen?

The motor is a crawler/torque based motor so definitely not an ideal racing setup. In order to get the proper speed necessary you would have to gear it very high and it could run on the hot side. Best bet is to look into a 2-Pole motor ranging in the 8.5-10.5t range.

Why suggest a 2 pole for a 4wd ? Keep the mmp and pick up something like a hobby wing 3652 or 3660 4000kv to 4600kv or tekin pro 4 similar kv or sc4x 550 can same kv but only 2 pole depending on size of the track. You could even pick up a castle 3800kv 4 pole.

I ran my 3100kv ROC in my Slash 4x a few times. Threw it around like a rag doll - very strong motor. I didn't have any heat issues at all. Guys use that combo to race U4, it will be fine in a somewhat light Slash.

In the end though, I swapped it out for a Castle 3800 4 pole for a little more RPM.

Like any motor, just keep an eye on temps and it will be fine.
