What temps are you pulling? I wouldn't even worry until you get near 180, really they are suppose to be able to handle up to 200 with out issues. Once you go over 200 for any reason the motor temp will be near impossible to control, and you should replace the rotor (easy 30 fix). Also make sure all timing and settings are at the minimum in your esc as well. You don't need or want timing on a sensorless motor.

Default bce chassis

Hello, I am new to this truck. I have coverted my truck to the bce chassis and i have put the losi rear torque rod on the truck. are you finding that the torque rod doesn't completely tighten down, or are the set screws supposed to show, about 2mm each side of the rod?

I will be running on a indoor clay surface and when not running there, ill be running on a indoor rubber surface, something like what you would find at a ice rink that protects ice skates blades that you walk across the floor with.

Will it be better to run the stock rear brace at the clay track where traction in not high and run the torque rod at the rubber track where traction is high?

Is the torque rod supposed to take away traction?

Sorry if these type of questions have been asked, i couldn't find such questions asked/answered.

Thanks for any help.

Starting to be a pattern here. I love this truck. It's so stable and just goes where I want it to.

I have not messed with any settings just putit in and went for it. I'm pretty green at all this, if I get the castle link is it pretty easy to figure out? Is the standard setting they come in maybe to much for what I'm runnin?

anyone know which size and length screws fit the pro 4600 and the t8 motors? I have my 4600 mounted up, but i want some extras. I think the 4600 and the t8 take the same screws. couldnt find it on tekin's site.

Default Diff fluid tuning

Ok im currently running 5-5-3 and am looking to get a little more on power turning, on throttle it wants to push. I am thinking at going 7-5-3. Im running on a indoor clay smooth and grip is pretty good, running pink beams too. Just looking to get some on power turning so will 7-5-3 be better?

Hi all, I searched through many pages but want to confirm as I am new to the electric world. I just bought the Tekin Pro 4 4600 and the RX8 for the roller and am trying to decide on what pinion for a larger outdoor track - can I start with a 16 or is 15 a better place to start? I'm looking at the roller manual and it says a 16 or 17 is recommended depending on the motor. Thanks!

If its a large outdoor track, I would say 13, and then work you way up or down from there.

I ran the 4600 outdoor last summer using a 14 tooth. It was plenty fast even for the largest of tracks. 13 tooth if you you are running a mid size outdoor track or indoor. It has plenty of grunt & top end. I think 15 would be pushing it a bit in terms of heat. I've seen the losi guys discuss pinions & they recommend 13 & 14's for the 4600. Its worked for me too.
