Wyd - The track I race on does't water every round and 4600 was practically ideal for such situations. But, your right, I'm already thinking of getting a 5700 motor.

I dont get to travel as much as I would like, but, I am fairly certain most tracks within 100 miles around me allow sensorless motors in Mod.

The cost and performance benefits of sensorless systems is going to be impossible to ignore. I can forsee another extremely contentious sensored/sensorless technology debate not unlike the Lipo/NiMh debate occuring in Stock/13.5 racing in the near future.

1. A plethora of 4wd Kits for around $300 and under
2. Race worthy and reliable Motor/Esc Combos under $150
3. Lipo batteries that last 2 years ]
4. Set of 4 wheels and tires for less than $36.
5. Lap times nearly identical to 1/8 buggies.

4wd mod is poised to take off.

In mod no one cares about the motor rules to be honest so your 100% right. Even at the ROAR Regionals this weekend my buddy ran 2wd mod and 4wd mod with the Castle systems and no one said a word about it.

To be honest what track is going to chase away a paying cutomer that is paying for 2 entries. Tracks need money to stay in business and pretty sure no track will send paying customers away.

The 5700 is nice for the days you can lay down some extra power. I'm getting my 4wd car ready to go in the next week or two. It will have a 6900 in it for right now til I get my 5700 back from my buddy or til I order a new 5700 motor.

Can the sidewinder motors be taken apart for maintenance? Tried to take one apart last night, pulled the screws out but couldn't get it apart.
