It really doesn't. It took me to 2 second place finishes even without it having a dremel to it. I was refering to the dragging problems other people had because their ride height was too low.

ok rant over
First, I love that people removed the pics from their posts, keeps the response so clean...thanks guys.

Second, we are looking at these again....and again...lol. Also, as another gentleman pointed out, be sure to leave the screws 1-2 turns loose in all the side facing screws.

I dont mind breakage, but a whole chassis just snapping?

I know Im good at breaking stuff, but wow.
Had to be a hairline fracture from another day at the track that finally came to fruition that day!!!

I recently saw a couple of guys at the Midwest Nitro Series running the Castle 1410 and was amazed at the amount of power the little can has. Seemed like they ran pretty cool as well.
I absolutely love the CC 1410,in a lightened truck it is a very amazing and underrated motor.On a small to medium track it runs almost cold!!!Love them!!!!

this really works. my current rear bumper has held up very well doing this. and as far as the RPM rear bumper...it's useless. it doesn't include the bracing that attaches to the shock tower (the part that breaks).

Yeah i run the castle motor myself in my pede 4x4. Geared at 13t it always stays around 140 all the time no matter how i run it. This is with giant 2.8 trenchers on it. Had to mess with the throttle curves to get type power delivery how i like it though. Stock settings are just to smooth for bashing. Still feel it's a good motor, just not for the large 8th scale track i run on. Smaller tracks it would be perfect.

Default SCTE Wheels Compared

Hey guys, I have a set of most SCTE wheels available and just took some quick weights and measurements for those interested.

Single wheel weight (lightest to heaviest):
Avid Sabertooth (AV1101-B) = 23g
Proline F-11 (2740-03) = 23g
AKA Cyclone (23006) = 27.5g
DE Racing Trinidad (SCT10B) = 28.5g
Losi Stock (LOSB7018) = 29.25g

Backspace (widest to narrowest, a smaller backspace will make the truck wider overall):
Proline F-11 (2740-03) = 32.5mm
DE Racing Trinidad (SCT10B) = 33mm
Avid Sabertooth (AV1101-B) = 33.25mm
AKA Cyclone (23006) = 34mm
Losi Stock (LOSB7018) = 34.35mm

Flex (most rigid to most flexible, this is totally subjective based on how much I can flex the INNER bead of the wheel. I don't know that this would have any negative impact on performance. I've seen others mention center section flex, but I'm not sure how I would test that):
Proline F-11 (2740-03)
Avid Sabertooth (AV1101-B)
AKA Cyclone (23006)
DE Racing Trinidad (SCT10B)
Losi Stock (LOSB7018) > by far the stiffest

The only other observation I have is that the hexes on the AKA wheels are looser than I would like. With the wheel nut slightly loose, there is a ton of play in the wheel. On the opposite end, the DE wheel takes some effort to press onto a wheel hex when it is new. I'm not sure if the AKA's loose fit will cause any real world issues, but it jumped out at me when I was looking them over.

+1 and bump. Thank for sharing your time to share with the community! Now can you do one with the chassis'?

This is awesome info and easily shows why no other wheel makes your SCTE ROAR legal width assuming those offsets are proper. There os NO room for error here. So if going to a ROAR race, run the stockers, otherwise, enjoy.

I had a castle 1410 in my Jammin SCRT and loved it! Lots of torque and stayed cool. When I bought my SCTE to replace the Jammin it came with a tekin 4600. The 4600 was fast but was missing he grunt the SCRT had w/ the castle, so I traded it for a tekin 4000. Was def disappointed in the torque/speed of the 4000 and it didnt run any cooler than the 4600 so I bought the revtech 4800 12 pole motor. HOLY CRAP!!! that motor is unreal! Has the torque the castle 1410 had and the speed the tekin 4600...love it! Ran the truck on a local carpet track earlier this week and the truck was pulling wheelies at the top of the straight!!! Only thing is, i need to keep an eye on the motor temps because it still runs kinda warm. Still need to play around with the gearing and esc controls though.

Either warehouse your going to have to wait a couple months for your batteries to get to you. The usa warehouse is on backorder and even though the china warehouse has them in stock you're still going to have to wait a long time for them to get to your doorstep.

100% Incorrect. Myself being in Canada, Allows it a Strait shot from HK to Vancouver BC, Canada... then Directly to me. So NO actually its not a couple month affair. If you had ordered from them in the past or Cared to look into their shipping records(Multiple threads on RcTech) You would realize that Shipping form HK is anything but Slow. Shipping from the US warehouse up to Canada Only incurs More $$ in Taxes and Duties. So We order Directly from HongKong when possible.
