Agree - I am on the 4000KV on a medium sized outdoor 1:10 track and compared to the 4600KV I think it's not quite enough. All this talk has me itching to buy the 4600KV now and sell the 4000KV.

What is the safe max temp under racing conditions for a Tekin pro 4600?

I believe tekin told me 200 but mine runs around 170-180.

I always believed that you NEVER run a brushless motor over 160. I heard differently about the Pro 4 4600. So I called Tekin and they confirmed that 190 to 200 is OK under race conditions with that motor. Boy, does it ever fly when geared to run those temps. It definately likes it.

Default Newbie Questions - 2S vs 3S

Hi - these are newbies question, but please bear with me...

I understand that with a 3S system it is more efficient than a 2S system and seems to power the truck more easily, just needing to get the right KV motor to put it in the 30K -> 40K rpm range, and then the right pinion gear...

Question 1:
However do you also need the same type of C rating to be able to match the load regardless of # volts?

Eg I am currently using the 2S NanoTech 6600's rated at 65C-130C. If I had a 3S with 6600, would I still be looking for something with the same C rating, or would it not require as high a C rating?

Question 2:
When using a friend's SCTE on 3S 5000mAh, I noticed the batteries were heaps heavier than my 2S 6600mAh's and my 2S 5000mAh's. Although the power was great this significantly affected handling. Are all 3S's that heavy? or is is just the ones he got?

Thanks in advance for your wisdom.

Typically no you wouldnt need as high of a C rating as the amperage draw is less when running a higher voltage and lower Kv motor .

Weight is the penalty you get with higher voltage , no way around that extra weight of the extra cell . You could run a lower Mah battery but then you might not get the runtime you need .
