That's correct, lol.

This is a picture of the track I was running it on. The back straight should be close to 115'.

Nope, we are using the stock o-rings.

I have to step in and second what Matt says here as well...and I have also run mine on open outdoor tracks and it performed there flawlessly as well.

Argh!!! You just reminded me that you only get TWO o-rings in the shock rebuild pack!!! Ridiculous! Why can I buy a TLR 22 Oring pack with 8 o rings in it and I can't get the same thing for the SCTE!!!

Outrageous!

This has BRIEFLY made me forget about popping ball cups on my 22SCT

Will I see less noticeable runtime with the 4600 compared to the 4000? Using Gens Ace 2s 5000mah 40c and 50c batteries.
Yes, much more power on the 4600 or 4700kv from HW that i have, just uses more juice so plan to run a higher C rating battery if goin to these motors, i run 65c and all is well and puffed the 40C from gens ace but this is also where the battery quality will show as the cheaper packs might puff but my cheap nanotech 6600's have been great and very happy

I took apart my scte and inspected my axles, and the ends look a bit wallowed out.

Are axles just a part that needs replaced from time to time?

Are tekno more durable? Are there direct replacement teknos?

Thanks

Axles and drive shafts are wear parts. If you are talking about the cross pin holes in the axles there are two sets of holes so you can move to a new hole and tighthen them up again!

ya im running the 4000kv on a small tight track and its just enough, outdoor or bigger track it would not be enough. also using the gens ace 5000, 50c, seems to be a good motor, only 3 races on it... but i will get the 4600 for bigger tracks....

Not trying to bash tekin, but there's a reason those guys run that motor, They're paid to. Can you say sponsorships? I do notice that a lot of guys run that motor at my track though. My tenshock motor will keep up with them all day long. Just to prove i'm not hating, i'll be going to tekin when my truggy gets converted to electric someday.

+1 my tenshock has been fantastic. The only downside is just like hobbyking and there lipos, the customer service is terrible.

That's good to hear since I ordered it yesterday (Will probably take a month to get here from Hong Kong though...)
I was wondering why I found so much posts and youtube videos about the Tenshock 411, and hardly anything about the HW 3656SD.
I'd love to see a race with a Scte with that motor in it just to see how it performs.

Yes there are direct replacement Tekno shafts for the centers and front/rear. I'm currently running them on my SCTE for quite a while and haven't had a failure. I have bent of one the rear shafts but I also splintered a losi shaft in the past and the drive pin slid out and tore apart my rear case. I have heard of people having them bind up but it seems different from SCTE to SCTE because I personally didn't have a problem.

Just my 2 cents.

1 month? Yikes. Next time give Falcon Sekido a shot, they've been quick and Jennifer in support has been tremendously helping in getting anything I need (including extra cases and switches). Also had good experience with HobbyPartz. CRC should treat you right too, though I don't have first hand experience.

Did you bend and splinter the shafts when running the MIP chassis and aluminum brace?

Seems that would occur more with chassis flex, and I assumed the MIP setup would be a bit more stiff with it's brace. I know I bent one with the stock chassis and stock plastic brace.
