I believe that the 4600 is limited to 2s. I run 6800mah 70c batteries for racing with the same combo.

No more than 2s lipo on that motor, 3s will destroy it in no time and you couldn't gear it low enough to stand a chance. If you want to run 3s lipo you need to be in the 2400-3200kv range, you could maybe sneek by with a 3800kv but that is very high rpm.

2s will be plenty. No need for 3s.

The trick is how much of your lipo's you eat up and how long of a run time you need to have. The 4k geared a touch lower with a little boost will be more effecient with your lipo's, it will NOT stress out ever and you can still have the same top speed down the stright a higher KV motor has. You will have the benefit of the control a slightly lower kv motor has in technical areas of the track. The 4k w/ 14t on any normal indoor track is overkill as is, with 15t on some of the rare large indoor facilities (motorama etc where you run on the 1/8 scale track). Keep in mind the stock losi SCTE motor is a 2800kv and they run that sucker geared WAY up to generate the power and a RTR with just that won motorama last year vs all the 4600,4700 motors out there.. higher kv in the same exact motor doesn't always mean more power, in fact in these vehicles it just means you gear lower to get the same top speed because any more is just wasted and ends up with a DNF due to LVC or way more crashes because you are too hot in the technical parts of the track that just don't need it to be fast.

Just an opinion, buy both and play you choice Good luck either way.
With what esc do you run boost with the 4000kv?

I do / did. I'm not impressed by their quality control - one of my 3 diff cases was unusable and they don't respond to email. Won't be using HR again.

I'm quite fond of my Gens Ace 2S2P 7000mAh batteries.

they'll work good for about 30-40 cycles, then not so much.

i know it's too late for you, but for others looking for high capacity, high discharge batteries for this truck, check out SMC's packs. only a few bucks more than the nano's and they're much higher quality batteries.

IP Intellect 70c 6800mah packs are the best I've had yet in my SCTE, including the 90c carbons, and many others.. week after week strong as the last way way better than nanotech packs, not as cheap but a nice price tag too. SMC recent packs I have not tried but I had a lot of bad luck with them a year or so ago.. several poofed.

I ran the 6600 nano's all season no probs with my tenshock sc401 4600. I guarantee you they've had more than 40 cycles on them and they're still going strong.
