I was also having heat issues running the sc411 4600/ rx8 and 6600 nano's. Leads would get very warm and I had one lead come off the deans a few times. I had also switched out the birdcage style plugs for the protec 4mm plugs. Since then I have ran 10ga wire directly from the esc to the battery and use TQ bullets that plug into the battery. Now all the wiring stays cool to the touch and I have had no more problems.

Don't worry bout wobbly center diff out drives it affects nothing,Every truck has them ,if it drives you nuts cuz You hate to look at it, then don't look at it LOL.Just like the front end slop it will not hurt any thing... Run It!!!! P.s. Battery Talk. Buy Good batteries!!It is the fuel of Your 800 dollar race rig ,why Skimp now??

In this round of battery purchase I'm giving Revtech, SMC, and Zombie batteries a try... My ESC is changed to sctpro as well, so far so good

I have heard good things about Revtech and SMC; could you PM me with how they go?

I have a Revolectrix I am incredibly happy with, it just doesn't have enough capacity, 6000mah which if I have to run 10min mains, could be a worry.

Got my intellect today, unfortunately I had to run with a deans connector as they didn't have any with bullets so I had to solder on female bullets to the wires (made sure I have enough heatshrink on that none of the contacts are exposed). Took it for a marginal run out in the back yard for about 7min, a bit of full throttle here and there and mostly otherwise light running to see if some sort of 'break' in does anything. Seemed to go ok, no puffing anyway. I'm sure in the hotter mid day sun will be it's real test.

So long as it holds up for a 2 day race meet I'll be happy. After that I start a new job so money and importing a high quality battery shouldn't be as big an issue.

Revtech 6900 100c goes pretty well... Lots of punch and high voltage... Ive just got it tried a couple of times so need some time to see if it stays so well

SMC i just got the 6000 60c non-roar for the price as backup battey, not bad though;-) Next would wanna try the zombies 7200 75c

For the connector i use ec5 for 4s and bullet for 2s now, i think i ll stay this way

the perfect way is to use KH dual bearing motor mount

Does anyone have a setup for smooth, very high traction tracks? We will run on an onroad track with some wooden jumps, surface is concrete covered with some rough epoxy layer, so traction is very high but not very consistent as there is a lot of nitro smoke and al kinds of tire residue.

I got all my stuff today! I have a question though. Both the motor and esc have the 3 wires already soldered in. I wanted to solder the motor batteries straight onto the esc without using any connectors. Should I just heat up the solder that's already on the esc and remove the wires or is that not a good idea? Also, how should I mount the esc to the truck. The tray on the truck has no holes but the esc has a some attachable tray of its own. It also has tape; do I just tape it on the truck's tray?

Use the tape to mount the esc. Unsolder the wires from the esc and solder the motor wires to it.

i would shorten the wires to while ur at it my tenshock 401 had more than extra
and for the battery i soldered 4mm bullets on to for my nanotechs the birdcage bullets that come with nanotechs arent recommended ether and yes like he said tape esc to the battery tray i acually own a jammin scrt10 not a scte so im gonna be using this battery tray on my truck same way
