Id like to know also! I have the same savox servo and would like to replace it with one with more torque. The radiopost ones have nice specs from what i have seen.

Do yourself a favor either order MIP tools or get the HPI screws and be done with it.
Hudy wrenches are good , but for what those HPI screws cost its a no brainer IMO and takes the screw stripping out of the equation .....

i have the green servo. it's very nice, however when i took it out when i sold my SCTE, i noticed that the gears were crunchy toward full lock on both sides. i sent it back to radiopost and am waiting to hear from them...

FWIW, i didn't notice any decrease in performance when the servo was in the truck.

I must of got a bad batch. I never had any problems with stocks after glueing the inserts,etc. but you know how it is with a new part coming out lol😄
Oh, dear mother of RC.

Default Quick comparison Tenshock SC411 vs Hobbywing 3656SD

This is just a quick comparison for those who might be interested...

I have been using a Tenshock SC411 (sensored, 4 pole, 550 sized) 4000KV for quite a few months now, not racing, but still going around a medium sized, hard packed, outdoor track with some doubles and a triple. Gearing was at 15T and it was temperature around 150F-160F. With this gearing I could clear the triple confidently with the right approach. I dropped it down to 14T to see if my temperatures would improve and found that they didn't improve, and despite better acceleration, I couldn't confidently clear the triple anymore.

I installed the Hobbywing 3656SD (sensored, 4 pole, 540 sized) 4000KV with a 14T pinion and initial driveway testing was that it had just as much go, cooler temperatures, and braking was a lot harder. It also felt a little smoother.

Today I took it down to the same track, and can say that it definitely performs a better than the Tenshock. Even on 14T it could smoke the triple with a lot more clearance, and the temperatures were around 140F-150F. I haven't tried 15T yet. Braking is also definitely a lot harder, so I have needed to adjust my transmitter to suit (haven't tried to adjust the ESC braking setting yet).

Due to track maintenance I haven't done a runtime comparison, but even that would be a guesstimate as I haven't done a timed run with the Tenshock.

Anyway, hope this helps you folk who might be tossing up for motor options.

The HW 4000 he was talking about is not an EZrun, it's a sensored 540 4-pole 4000kv motor. Don't get mistaken with the EZrun.

My Tekin 4600 is to my backup motor since I got mine.

My tekins backups as well the 4k HW is awesome. Coolest and best braking motor in the lot. The Tenshock was a battery eater, roar illegal, and always ran hot. Sold both of mine long back and never looked back.
