Have you calibrated the ESC? What speedo, and radio system you using?

That's probably not quite enough information to go on, but things to check would be:

1) Does the truck run (forwards/backwards) if you use a different battery of the same voltage?

2) Have you checked all the connections from receiver -> ESC -> motor?

3) Is the battery the right voltage that the ESC expects? Maybe the ESC's low voltage control (LVC) has kicked in. (eg Even though you have charged it, a 2S would probably be under the LVC of a 3S battery.)

3) Is this the first time you have used the truck? You may need to calibrate the ESC to your radio gear.

Probably start with those couple of steps. The more information on the things you have tried and didn't work, the easier it is to get it fixed.

Cheers!

If I order the new HD diff should I be worried about the screws that come with that diff or should I order these as well.

Yes, those FHS’s you spec’ed should work fine....and I would use them over the stock supplied screws.

What I use with the Losi HD differentials are the HPI 2.5 x 12mm flat head screws (P/N HPIZ449).

Also, if you regularly use an electric screwdriver, I would suggest not using it on these small screws…and tighten by hand.

Hope that helps!

Thaks!
I have now:
Punch: Level 3
Max Brake Force: 68%
Reverseforce: 25%
Initial brake: 0%
Neutral Range: 9%
Boos Timing: 12
Turbo Timing: 0 Turbo slope: 0.1 , Turbo Delay 0.1

Would it be such a good outdoor track?
What should be changed, that the truck would be peaceful to speed up, but should be fast?

Thank you in advance for your reply professionals.

Ps. I broke the Orion Vortex r10 Pro fan immediately. Would it throw the tips which would be a good replacement?

I could have used other topic, but when it comes to this car, so I put in here.
And sorry my English. I try to learn more

I just bought a used SCTE 4wd for racing at the local track.

Recommendations for a BL ESC / BL motor. I talked to the track and they mentioned Tekin rx8 and Tekin TT2518 motor. Any other recommendations that are cheaper? I was quite surprised how expensive the esc/motor are. It's been about 6 years since I last went to a track.

I am hoping I can reuse my old lipo battery 4800mac team orion platinuim edition kokam cells and radio ( I think spektrum dx2 or 3 can't recall ).

I don't want to get crazy yet, just to go out and have fun!

If you go to www.teamorion.com under race results they have lots of speed control settings listed.

This is going to be hard to hear....that battery will get chewed up and spit out by these monsters. Depending on the track, I can burn through 3300 mAh in a 6 minute race. I've heard that the hobbywing stuff works decent in these trucks and is quite a bit cheaper for ESC/motors. I've tried their 4000kV 4 pole and its every bit as good as the Tekin I have been running. Right now, I'm running a Viper VTX8 with the Tekin 4 pole 540 4000kV. Get a lipo with at least 6500 mAh's and low internal resistance. It's not a real cheap class for battery/motor/ESC.

You can get a Hobbywing sct pro esc. A. 4000 or 4700 kv motor and program box for under 200 from falconsekido.com super smooth and just as reliable as anything else on the market.180 day warranty too.

Thanks for being honest and the suggestions. I'll check it out. On the bright side, once I get everything I am sure it will be fun!

Just to make sure I don't goof up and buy the wrong one, will these one work for me?

ESC:

Motor:

What is the meaning of kV? What should I choose between 4000 or 4700?

Both of those are the ones you want (I have both of those).

kV = kilovolts. So a 4000kv motor on a 2S LiPo (7.4V) runs at approximately 4000x7.4 = 29,600rpm, and a 4700kv would run at 34,780rpm. You then gear appropriately.

If you are just starting out I would definitely advise you stick with the 4000kv. This means using a 14T, 15T or 16T pinion gear (start with 15).

I bought the 4000kv sensorless motor for my SCTE and I am very happy with it. Like stated above I also am just starting out and feel like this was a great starting point. Later on I might upgrade to a sensor combo.
