This post by Ryan could be regarded a confirmation:

The ESC is basically a MMpro and the motor is a 4 pole 2800kv 550 motor and is a monster.

I'm running black spring in the front, orange in the rear. 32.5 shock weight frt and rear. Emulsion style, 3 piston in the frt and 4 in the rear. 2.0 sway bar frt and 1.8 rear. Its indoor clay , tight and pretty smooth. I'm running super soft megabites. I have barcode greens coming tomorrow and i'm hoping that does it. I moved the battery forward also. I'm trying to get this thing to turn as quick as possible. Anyone have any suggestions? I had someone else drive the car and he had the same problem while braking into a corner.
Going up in front should make it turn less.

Try 5 7 3, and make the front shocks a little bit more vertical.

I went to that from 5 5 3. turns quicker, and best of all, more onpower steering in those low speed 180 corners. The rear does get a good bit looser so have to adjust throttle for that.

Hey Ryan,

I let my 8yo son drive my SCTE in the novice class a couple weeks ago. He has been driving a SC10 with a 17.5 for about a year and just didn't seem to get the hang of it. The only thing I did to detune the SCTE was turn the throttle EPA down to 65%(~25mph). He we out and won his second heat with it. So, I bought him a RTR for Christmas.

Now for the questions: Will Castle Link work with this ESC? Can the motor and ESC handle taller gearing (on 2s) when he is ready for more speed?

Thanks,


Chris

I'm selling my Slash 4x4 and I'm going to buy a Losi SCTe

I wat to get the Losi SCTe + Bump Chassis http://www.nitrohouse.com/p24372/Los...duct_info.html

The electronic will be:

ESC: HobbyWing Xerun SCT Pro
Motor: Tenshock SC411 4000kv
Servo: Savox 1256TG
Radio: FS-GT3B (I already have one)

There are some questions:

- What pinion I need to run with that motor? *The track isn't big*

- What are the must have hop-ups and spares?

- Which wheels: JC Rulux or DE Racing or Stock Wheels? *I've seen that most people prefer the Rulux, because the DE Racing wheels are very flexible.*

- Tools needed?

- What are the most common issues?

*Sorry if my english was bad*

if it's a small track, i'd start with a 15 tooth pinion.

hop ups/spares: the TLR tuning kit is nice and has most of the hop ups you'd want to do other than the HD outdrives and spring kits. you can wait a bit on those until your stock outdrives start to wear. i'd get the spring kits right away. for spares, i bought a bunch of spares (like arms, spindles, carriers, etc) but have never used any of them. the only parts i've replaced have been the front center driveshaft, rear bumper, pivot balls, and steering rack. the truck is very durable and i don't think you need to keep a bunch of spares around unless it's going to take a long time to get parts.

i think the stock rims are the best ones out for the truck. i'd just get those.

i'd get a decent set of hex drive wrenches like these: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...h-Set-US-Sizes

i think the most common issue you would see with the new trucks (that have updated diff pins) will be the front center driveshaft coupler. make sure you keep that coupler well greased which is supposed to help.

your english is fine!

I am, BBQ

I've been running a 12T at Critters and 14T during the summer at CRC - big 8th scale track. Temps are low 120 at most on motor with 12T. I think I may have been as high as 180 with the 14T outdoors in the summer.

I ran the esc at 100% with the motor geared at an 18 on 2s and had very good lap times and in 110 degree weather, the motor never got over 185. So, in normal temps and given its a 4 pol which are usually safe up to about 200, you could gear it up but it would be stupid fast at that point. As for the castle link...yep.

Your english is way better then a lot of poeple on here!

I would get the TLR tuned kit as it has a lot of great parts for tuning and added strength for a great price.

Other things that don't come in the tuned kit are the spring kits really help with performance.
Lightened outdrives are nice as they are stronger and lighter. (replace when stock ones wear out!)
Shock piston sets for tuning.

I would say those are the high points for upgrades.

Then you can look at an upgrade chassis that will be stronger and lighter.
