Thanks, will look into that!

On another note. I was running a Tenshock sc401 4000kv but its running a bit hot now that i mounted 2.8 Trenchers (4.9" high) all round.

I picked up a Leopard 3674 2650kv that im gonna run on 3s, was thinking i'd gear it with a 16t pinion which should be a good combination of acceleration, speed and low temperatures.

Anyone running a similar motor on 3s that could tell me what gearing you use for bashing?

No, the RTR motor is a very low kv motor that's why it comes with the 18 tooth.How warm? Are you checking with a temp gun?.If it is getting hot way more than it used to perhaps something is binding.Check gear mesh as sometimes it comes together as you jump,also diffs may need rebuild.if the motor is just getting worn than there are alot of choices for a new one.
My fav hobbywing 4000 kv 4- pole sensored. Cheers!
Check your motor bearings.
Thanks guys, I bought it used so I don't know if it's running hotter than normal, and I haven't used a temp gun but I will have someone check it friday night at the track. I'm just used to running 2wd, this is my first 4wd, it is alot more fun but the motor seems to be pretty hot to the touch after each battery, it has plenty of speed. I will check the motor also, just wanted to make sure my gearing was in the ballpark.

That's an 1/8th scale motor.... I'm all for maximum power and all but 1/10th scale differentials will most likely crap out really quick.

Hello everyone I have the SCTE 1.0 with a new Trunigy Trackstar SC 120A ESC and some Turnigy Nano Tech 2s 5300mah 50~100c rated lipos.
The rest of the rc is pretty much stock.
I currently have a 4pole 4300kv 540 motor in it. But I need a few more pinions to make sure I have the right gears in it.
I am looking at getting another motor for this rig.
I am considering the HobbyWing EZRUN Sport 3656-4000KV or the Turnigy TrackStar SCT 4.5T.

I am thinking a 4 pole would be better than a 2 pole but I need some advice on this.

Heres the links to the motors I am talking about.

Actually i am not too worried about that since i have seen people run similar motors on 4s in the SCTE. What i am worried about is center diff vibration.

When running the SC401 i noticed that if i floored it i would get some sort of vibrating sound/cogging sound. But if i sort of eased into full throttle it didnt appear. Not sure if it was the motor or something else that was wrong but the issue was completely gone when i tested the car on the bench without wheels so i guess it was a combination of a motor with to high KV, big tires and to steep gearing.

Most probably its the rear diff pinion chewing up the ring gear. Chassis wise, a SCTE is the same size as an 8ight. The stuff attached to the chassis is engineered for 1/10th scale power. Driveshaft couplings, differential gears, will die quickly with 1/8th scale power.

The HobbyWing motor is sensorless,check for the sensored version 4000 kv 4-pole sensored it has the same 3656 number but sd after it has a two tone heat sink can .The best $ 89 dollars I have ever spent in 25 years of this Hobby No Lie!!!!

The ESC I have is sensorless will it be that big of a deal I know one of the motors that I linked was sensored.
But will it matter?

Hmm then i guess the person on msuk forum saying the scte handles 3s perfectly well , the scte has a very similar drove train to a losi 8 buggy (handles up to 6s ) is wrong

Similar but completely different scale. No where NEAR as durable as 1/8

Questions?? Esc mount

Installing my hobbywing SCT Pro ESC and wandered how you guys are mounting it to the chassis? It comes with a plate I can screw down to the stock speedo tray, or I can use the supplied double sided tape.

Is there an advantage to one or the other as far as vibration? Should I do the screwed mount AND the tape? Any info and pics of your set up appreciated! Thanks!!

Has it lasted and stuck well? Just worried about getting super dirty and losing adhesion.

I tihnk most people have just used good quality servo tape (including those people who just cut the plastic section off the battery tray to mount the ESC directly to the chassis.

I use the clear Parma servo tape on my SCT Pro ESC and have had no problems. Velcro (even the super hold stuff) seemed to come loose for me. I've heard the Kyosho Vibration Absorbtion tape is good as well, but it costs a quite a bit more.

I use shoe glue and works well.
