I'd get a 6500mAH 2s pack, 40c or better.

Be careful with the 4600 pro4 according to these guys there is an epademic of bearing failures... you HAVE to run with an extra bearing to work properly. Ask RC*PHREAK he'll back me up on that..





umm ya no worries on the pro4, i'm just being wise.

If you want to go 10 min for a amain then a 6200 or bigger mah bat is what you want. I run a 6600 70 C and it gets me 12 min of racing. it sucks not to be able to finish a race

I was just looking at these, Boca Bearing has the sealed stainless version for $6.95 each. Also some with ceramic innards for $13.95. It looks like the rubber sealed ceramics are $15.95. Were you just looking for the rubber sealed bearings?

Maybe someday, but if it does come out, it will be a while. I dont feel its worth waiting for with the roller still available.

I have been running a pro4 4600 since before they were available. No bearing failures. I am not saying it won't happen but I would not shy away from the motor based on the failure of a few. this is by far the most popular motor for this truck to date.

The rollers and RTR's that are out for sale are the most up to date at this time.

Ryan, I should have been more informative. The reason I ask is because mine has been in storage for 6 months or so.


I am mainly curious about the diffs. I'm considering machining some inserts for them and having them hardcoated with some other components I'm doing on other projects. Unsure if that is the right approach right now. Especially if there is no more wear issues.

It's a great little truck you guys put out. Very fun!

Whats the difference in these ESC's? I am looking at a Tekin 4600 Pro4 and wonder what are the advantages from either ESC?

The main difference is the SCT Pro is capable of running from 2s to 4s and I don't believe has "Blinky" mode. This one is better if you also have an 1/8th scale car and plan on possibly using it as a back up to use on 4s. The other one the regular 120 amp (The one I use) is only 2 to 3s capable. But on these trucks, nobody runs them on anything more than 3s so it's right at home on the SCTE. I also run 1/10th scale buggy, so the optional "Blinky" mode is great in case I need to pull it out and run it as a back up esc in my 22 which I run in Stock 17.5 No Timing class, so I need the "Blinky" option. I hope that helps you decide which is better for your needs.
