Casper maybe you can help....
I am running a SCTE with a Teking 4.5 550 motor with a LRP SXXTC I have the drag brake and brake all the way down as well as the Power/Punch set at 1.
I am geared at 13/40
The truck is very fast and can make 10 min mains on a 6200 lipo

What would the advantage be going to a 540 4600 motor?

Just wondering if it is a huge difference in motors.
Thanks for any info you can give me.

Agree to disagree. Balls-out drag style straight line I could tune the Pro4 to smoke a snake, but tuned for lap-after-lap running the gist of what I'm getting is that the sensored function is the payoff. I expected an appreciable usable horsepower difference as well (to speak in car terms). Maybe my driving just needs to improve to the point that I can appreciate it.

Sensorless does work. However on the track when lowest lap times win races sensored has proven time and time again that it helps. Tekin and our products are about not only giving you the power to win but the control. Sensored rules in regard to pure control. Sensorless does work well but when it comes down to it, knowing the rotor position is far superior to having to guess.

In the hands of a good driver yes I agree, to weekend hacks like most of us. Nah

Bondo, that's true, but in my mind, we've all chosen the SCTE to get the best of what's available out there, why would we limit ourselves with the electronics we put in it? Like someone said earlier in the thread, why put a Yugo motor inside a Ferrari?

No doubt. Sensorless has great efficiency to it. This is why the Rx8 runs the D2 dual drive. Best of both worlds really.

I'm too poor to afford sensored esc's and motors.

More like a Dual Quad Hemi pucking exhaust fumes vs. Ferrari. Yugo it ain't.

My apologies, poor analogy.

LOL, no worries. The old Hemi's weren't designed to run slow and smooth.

It's not any more expensive now a days. Take a quick search when looking up 4 poles and esc's.

How long are the updated Losi pins/shims lasting. I have the Chris pins but would rather wait until the other one's are trashed. After inspecting all 3 diffs some of them already have wear.

I wholeheartedly believe that sensored has no more power than unsensored provideing both have the same KV, comparing the Tekin 4000 to the Castle 3800 isn't exactly a fair comparison even tho it's pretty close.
From all my years in BL and reading arcticles, posts etc UNsensored is slightly more efficent than sensored, It may be minute but thats what I feel is true.

STPETE40; I still have that Beta motor in my possesion that will do everything the 4600 Pro4 can do and plan on testing it again when we hit the 1/8scale track.
