its nice its sensored so a lot smoother throttle but lost power.

advice? thank you in advance.
IMO 5.5 is not meant to clear triples and is not enough motor, especially for the SCTE

I did a little weight comparison today with a RTR and my fully outfitted TLR you name it, if its out its on mine.
-TLR tuning kit
-HA shock bodies
-HA balls
-TLR Chasis
-HA outdrives
-HA chasis braces
-snr top plates
-lundsford TIT links
Needless to say i was surprised they within a few grams of each other
Not a bad thing i was just surprised a little.

Lol, nice observation. Totally missed it and was like, what the hell - no way?



edit: although it could've been 'tare:d' away, but even if it was it just doesn't add up. Just the chassi alone is what, 70g less? Motor is a good bit lighter aswell.

Unless I am missing a joke, it doesn't matter what the box weights. The scale is on the box, the box is not on the scale. The box is just being used to raise the scale to allow the tires to clear the showcase.

In first picture with his hopped up SCTE the box is on top of the scale.

It's really plenty of motor, and you don't have any idea how big the triple is.

its a tight triple but really the point is to reference that i thought the Tekin 5.5 would be an upgrade over the stock motor but so far it cant do what my stock did before.

i wanted to stay with a 550 motor to keep temps down. using a 14T gear spur.

do i need to make some adjustment thru the program?

I have both the 4.5k and the 5.1k and they both have work flawlessly. The 5.1 actually runs a little cooler with the same gearing, than the 4.5k. wicked top end with the 5.1!
