Well I finally got my diffs all back together, I just bought a few gaskets and doubled up on each diff. I KNOW how to build these diffs.. In my other truck I have replaced the pins and oil many times. But I finally picked up another scte and the plastic housings don't seem to be cooperating with me lol. 2 gaskets wont do anything but cause a better seal and stop the diff from leaking out of the seal which was also a known issue along with gluing in the hex. Anyways my truck is back together the diffs are as smooth as butter and I am now ready to drop in some electronics, not sure if I want to fork out the cash for another rx8 and a PRO4 4600. So I was wondering what is a comparable esc and motor out there. Any info on ESC's and MOTORS would be great. Thanks!

Hobbywing sct-pro esc and 4000Kv motor combo.

Just a quick note to those people out there looking at Hobbywing vs Tekin combos. At my track, the Tekin RX8 / Pro4 4600KV is an absolute killer, but the HW SCT Pro + Tenshock 4600KV is comparable. I am running a Tenshock 4000KV and the difference is quite significant in terms of how much air I can get on a triple.

So if you want comparable performance to the Tekin 4600KV, with Tenshock go for at least the 4600KV.

So which is better? The 120 sct pro? Or the 1/8th-1/5th scale 150a?? Also what about the tenshock 411?

The 150a is really designed for 3S and people who run 2S on it seem to experience minor problems.

I am running the Tenshock SC411 4000KV and it is really nice albeit a little less power for the big jumps (we have an average sized sequence that can be done as a double-single or as a triple, and I will only go the triple if really confident on aproach - the 4600's do the triple each time without fail).

Like eddomak said the 150 amp is really designed for higher cell counts. For 2s i'd go with the sct-pro. For example i have no reverse no matter what i do and the lvc cuts off about .2 volts per cell higher than what i program. Minor setbacks but the sct pro is smaller and lighter and nobody i know or on this forum has had problems with it. For the motor i only have experience with the tenshock sc401 4600. The thing is a rocket. The only difference between the 401 and 411 is the 411 is sensored. Either way you can't go wrong. Just watch those temps as it is a hot running motor and you'll need a fan for sure. I'd gear it at 13t as well. The hobbywing 4000kv motor is great from what i've heard. Your choice.

My SC411 4600 was running 30-40 degrees cooler than the pro-4 4600's at last weekends race (both using 14T pinions) making similar power.

Hi all,
After 9 packs this Saturday, the thing is rocking. Just got to change F/R bumpers.
Was having fun with the BIG 1/8 guys.
On 3s, 5000/35C and 2400Kv with a 17T, the truck is handling great.
With the 3800Kv and 2s, it is not enough in the straight and hard to correct in the air. The MMP is gving me a few worries sometimes and then goes fine.
Stock spring Front and soft Rear; F/30 and R/30 in oil, diff is 5/7/3.
Next will get the HD shock and will set up my M2C pistons.
Runtime with the setup is about 18/20 min with a full pack.
I am having a lot of fun with this truck.
Best,
V

Any mods for the steering? I thought I read something about it but couldn't find anything. Saw some aluminum steering pieces anyone use them. Love this truck just trying to make it better.

150a, as has been said isn't ideal for 2s lipo. Some have said its fine, others have issues. I wouldn't buy one for 2s. The XERun 120a is a bit more expensive than the SCT-Pro because it's firmware can be flashed to use boost and turbo. It's a more versatile esc but more expensive. If you're just looking for an ESC strictly for 4x4 SC, then the SCT-Pro is fine as we don't use boost and turbo in that class.

The sc401 4600 is doomed to run hot no matter what. The 411, i don't know, but my friend runs one and can't complain.

Yeah i already reccomended the sct pro because my 150 amp hobbywing has tiny issues like i mentioned. Still a rockin esc, just not the best on 2s.

Hey guys, great thread. Has anyone else had a problem popping the rear driveshaft(Tekno front and rear)? This has happened to me twice in the past couple weeks and set screw is still there (blue locktite). I'm running a TLR chassis w/torque tube. I noticed a little ring gear wear last time I had the rear diff apart and wonder if a little slop in there is the culprit. Thanks.

Steve
