What do I need to do to run the 22 low friction o-rings in my SCTE shocks? The 22 o-rings are thinner than the clear stock o-rings that came on my truck, and their ID sees to be a hair larger than the stockers (which is I'm sure what makes them low friction). With the single low friction 0-ring and the single stepped washer, the cartridge cap doesn't compress the o-ring enough to cause it to provide a seal on the shock shaft. Do I need to add a thin shim washer to make up for the difference in o-ring thickness? TIA for any advice...

I use the Hobbywing Xerun 120amp esc, if you go back a few pages, you'll see I gave some info on them. VERY good systems. The 2200kv motor would need to be run on 3 or 4s lipos. I'd go with a different combo. There's a 120amp Xerun esc combo'd with a 550 can motor, that would probably be a better choice for this truck on 2s. That being said, I'd get the 120amp esc and go with the Tekin Pro4 4600kv motor if you can swing it. If not, go with the esc and the Tenshock 4pole motor. That's an inexpensive way to get a good motor that a lot of people have had success with as well as a good inexpensive esc also. definitely get the program box, it makes your life a lot easier
Is the Hobbywing 120 amp a better choice than the Hobbywing 150 amp esc? At hobbypartz.com the 150 amp is $30 cheaper.

There is 2 things you can do.

1. Buy the 22 shock limiter set and use one of those as a spacer.

2. Buy a Kyosho 1/8 oring set and use the spacers out of that.

22 route is cheaper. Put the stock fitting in first followed by the spacer and then the Lf oring.

Hobbywing (#Combo-M6B) Xerun Sensored 150A ESC + 4274 BL Sensored Motor (2200KV) + LCD Program box Combo Set for 1:8 Car

The batteries I have are some LIPO 4000 2S 30C and 4500 2S 45C.

I know there's a lot of good talk about the Tekin RX8 but that ESC/motor-combo but is way too expensive for me...
I'm not planning to going to races, it's pure riding for fun with some friends.

Does anyone have experience with this Hobbywing-combo? Is it overkill (there's also a 120A ESC?) or not?
The terrain, where I mostly are going to ride, is also a temporary MX-circuit.
On another occasion I'm going to drive on astroturf on a circuit in Geilenkirchen (Germany).

Are there other combo's that are compareble with this one?
That motor will rub against the outdrives on the centerdiff unless you use a 18-19 pinion, and you will have to dremel of some of the plastic and one screw under the motor. And you have to use atleast a 3cell battery.
And it is a heavy setup intended for a 1/8 buggy

IMO that setup is not a good choise

This motor and a 120a esc should be a good choise

I run this setup on 2cell and a 18t pinion with no problem

@ ScottKelly911, NYC Diesel, PS71:

many thanks for the input!!
At the moment I own a (broken) Traxxas Slash 4x4 Platinum Edition with the Velineon 3500-motor and VXL3S ESC.
So I assume the Hobbywing-solution will make the SCTE a rocket compared with the Slash?
Is my assumption correct or am I seeing things a bit too bright?

I tried a 3cell battery with the setup im running and that was just stupid fast using a 14t pinion.

The 150amp and 80ap 1/8 esc will workfine, except you will need to run a BEC. Those esc's are designed to run on 4s batteries. The 120 amp has programming functions that the 1/8 esc's dont, like boost and turbo, andfor those that say the 4pole motors dont get much from timing, have you tried some boost or turbo? I find these motors can geared properly with these functions and be more efficient and run cooler.

Is anyone having problems with their motor moving out of mesh during racing besides me? I run a Tenshock sensored 4 pole motor which is the 550 size and I have a hard time making it through a 5 min. qualifier without it sliding out. I have tried a longer bolt with both a washer and lock washer but still failed before the end of the 7min. main.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

For this particular application, I would not use the HobbyWing 150A especially paired with that motor (other responders have covered why).

The two HobbyWing ESCs I'd suggest for this truck would depend on what else you might use it for. If you think you'd using timing and some of the more advanced programmable features in say a 17.5 boosted 2W SCT class, or 1/10 buggy - I'd suggest the 120A. If you might also use the ESC in 1/8 scale applications, then I'd suggest the HobbyWing SCT Pro (since it supports more than 2S).
