I run a Tekin Pro4 4600 and MMP and Protek 6400 and have made a 12 minute main, but with very little left in it. I didn't take any warm-up laps either.

Leon, You will want more motor. If you want to use Novak, Get the 4.5 550 motor. Otherwise, Get the Pro 4 4600 and de-tune in necessary.

I was hoping by the end of this month. It looks like the shock shafts have a chance, but the hinge pins may be the second week of next month.

Ryan,
Question on ti screws. Does the scte use the same size screws as the 8ight? I see Lunsford has a ti screw kit for the 8ight. Would save a lot of time and money over piecing one together.

Im about to order a motor for my second go around with an SCTE. First time around I ran the RX8/Pro 4600. Just curious about the performance difference between the 4600 and the 4000. Which feels better on the bottom end? I mainly run on a medium sized track but once or twice a month I run on a large,pretty technical track with a few decent jumps. Its the Coral Springs track in Florida to be exact for those who have raced there. I was thinking the 4000 would be better because it might have more bottom end which I think is better there but I could be wrong. This is why i'm asking. What should I go with this time around?

Grats on getting a new motor, please use the search function for 4600.... lots of great info.

Bottom line, get the 4600.

I Have a 4000 and it is RIDICULOUS! yeah not quite the LUDICROUS speed of a 4600 but it is still fast! I just don't have to turn my end ppoints down to 50% like one of the guys at our track who says his truck is still too fast even at 50%! I prefer to have a lil more bottom end of the 4000 over the light speed of the 4600, but they are BOTH fantastic motors!

I have noticed this too. Maybe due to the truck not needing many changes once you have a setup you like. The Durango has multiple setups for the same track and driver depending on moisture conditions.

The truck has the stock spur in it

track is clay 100x60

SDRC if you you know it
try a 13T that's what most of us are using at OCRC which is slightly larger, so it should be fine at SDRC also.

TP are known to be good batteries for sure, but honestly, I don't think they justify the cost. The jig is up when it comes to batteries, it's well known and proven that batteries costing a fraction of the cost of the "High end" battery companies often perform at equal or higher levels. I'm not gonna beat a dead horse, but I think we all are done being snowed by MaxAmps and their ridiculously high priced batteries that consistently underperform. Personally I'm using the Turnigy Nano-tech 6000mah 65-130c batteries and I'd say I'm getting just over 10 min run time. I do have the 6600's on order, so I'm curious to see how much run time I get out of those. So I agree, USUALLY get what you pay for, but definitely not when it comes to batteries

Do yourself a favor and wait for the TLR Ti screw kit. I'm not sure how much info he's let out of the bag on them yet because it's still in testing and I haven't been as active in this thread as I used to be, so I wont say too much like how much he's hoping to put them out for, or how much weight is saved or one other good thing about them, but Ryan is hoping to put them out for...let's just say it's a fraction of the cost of the Lunsford set! Should be available quite soon too If you absolutely have to put them in right now or just want them in a few strategic places, then the Lunsford screws are great but I don't think they have an SCTE kit. You'd have to piece them together. Some of the eight-E screws will fit, but it's not the exact same, so you'll have too many of some sizes, not enough of others and some screws you'll never use while missing a few others. Honestly, I'd just wait, it shouldn't be too long, there's a lot of other ways to lighten up your truck in the mean time If you're just looking for better than stock screws and don't really care about lightening via screw kit, then the Tony's screw kit is probably the best kit out there to my knowledge and it's what I run in mine currently.

Hope that helps guys!

+1 on the 6000's! I actually feel they are a bit under-rated! I have been practicing having a ball with my truck and not realize I have been out for 15 minutes before! Didn't hit LVC either! Bring it back to my pits, charge the pack, and it took 5600mah to fully charge! Thats ridiculous! Needless to say I am very impressed with my 6000's ( I have 4 btw! ) and may just order one or two 6600's too! A good deal since the 6600's are only a couple more bucks than the 6000's!
