Hobbywing ESCs? Anyone using one of these? How will it perform with the Tekin pro 4. Is there a difference between the sct pro and the one for 1/8 cars?

If your spending 20 or so on ha balls then you may as well spend another 7 for rod ends. Keep it tight bro.!!

I run a Tenshock SC411 4600 kv which is also a 4-pole motor like the pro4. This together with a sct pro and they run great together.

Difference is that the 1/8 esc is 2-6s capable, but not recommended with 2s, whereas the sct pro is 2-4s capable and recommended for 2s application. They do however share firmware.

Is it ok to run a rear ring gear that has gotten a bit sharp from wear, or is it time to replace it?

Stated by Hobbywing.

Although that could very well be a marketing move in order to "create" a need for the 2s recommended systems

Does anyone have any recommendations on socks for the shock absorbers? The pillow socks that cover the shaft on the standard shocks keep slipping off, so was looking for something that covers the entire spring.

I know outerwears do them but does anyone else?

Doesn't seem to matter where they come from because I doubt I will be able to get them in Australia. What brand are they? Online?

Also what socks actually fit these shocks by means of comparable models?

Just checked them out but they didn't list an international shipping price.

Badhorsie had socks from $10, then it was $30 postage

Thinking maybe the rc-skins rubber socks but I am curious as to whether rubber will bind or eventually stretch.
