Just a though if you want to try and check it out.

i to run the promatch 65c 2s. i had 1 connector completly come off last weekend and when looking at their solder job, it was barely held on by any solder, you might want to resolder your connections, i don't think they come with a very good solder job, and that would lead to overheating also

14/40 is how I had it geared. Tons of power and came off the track between 150-160 all weekend. Super impressed with the smoothness of the control and the over all power this little motor produces. I am believer that is for sure.

The traction this weekend at OCRC is about as good as it gets there. Typically only seen for big races there. Slicks can produce some insane traction that is for sure. Normal traction is a little less but still great. The layout is super fun and racing was close. Some good battles this weekend.

Felix was fast for sure. I was checking the lap times and he was fast an consistant. Wish I had a little better start to race a little with him but glad to see a SCTE on top which is getting to be a pretty common site these days!

I qualified 5th in the C-main and ended up taking 2nd place and the transfer spot to the B-main. That's definitely nothing to be ashamed of since AE Factory driver Chris Jarosz took the win. He was in the C-main because he broke twice in qualifying and the way they seeded you was based on adding your two best out of three qualifying heats. Once into the B, I started off pretty well and worked up to about 4th having avoided some carnage ahead of me, but I crashed once and then just unravelled and ended up 9th of 10 in the B But I did better than I thought I would have and I had such an awesome time! There was a little drama but I didn't let it put a damper on my weekend.

Heck yeah, I'm the biggest hack EVER I think you were still there when the Team manager/RC Bashers Raceway owner came up to me and was apologetic. I think he was extremely embarrassed by their actions. Eh, it is what it is. It was great hanging with you, haha man you know there's traction when 2wd buggys and 1/8th scale buggys are traction rolling! No problem on letting you run a pack through the truck, how'd you like that tekin Pro4 motor? PM and let me know when you're gonna come out, I'll be sure to come out and hack into you, er, I mean, run with you

So with this new Tekin Pro4 motor coming out, what's the best kv to go with for the TEN-SCTE? .....since there are 3 versions from what I've seen.

Most guys prefer the 4600 in the Losi.

Honestly it's probably going to be track dependent, but it's a lot easier to tame a higher kv motor down with gearing and esc/radio settings than it would be to get a lower kv motor run on a bigger track. My vote goes for the 4600 kv motor because that's what I've got and even geared down to 13T on the pinion, I still had more power than almost any other truck out there other than Casper who was running the same motor as me. But if you've got a super small track, I'm sure you'd be more than happy with either the 3300 or 4000. I don't have any experience with either of those and haven't seen any in person though, so I can't give a definitive answer on them, but since the 1410 is a 3800kv, I'm sure the 4000kv Tekin would be an excellent choice as well.

I agree with Scott that it is easier to tame a motor down then it is to speed a motor up! With that being said I think it will depend on your track. If your local track is small and tight the 4000 might be a great choice as the 4600 is a monster of a motor. If you go to differenent tracks some large some small then go 4600 and you can setup two different profiles in your speedo for each track. I run on a lot of high bite tracks so I can lay down some power so I went with the big one there there are lots of smaller indoor tracks I see around the country where I think the 4000 would be a better choice if that is all you run on. Make sense?

I believe the 3300 was designed for 3s so it is more of a basher motor since most places limit you to 2S for racing. Correct me if I am wrong Ty or Randy.

The 3300 was meant for 3s. Casper is correct.

I believe it allows you to use 8ight buggy or truggy shocks (buggy i think).

As far as I know, now that we have the tuning springs for the SCTE available, running the 8ight shocks is just adding weight. So there really isnt a point to those shock towers anymore. Personally, I would buy (have bought already) the Losi Carbon towers. Atleast you know the quality will be great.

That's what I was thinking but I know a guy who uses them on the regular shocks towers.

You can limit the shocks and run normal towers as well.
