Thanks.

[QUOTE=racenut123;8878102]I believe it 2 antisquat 3 toe.......Little help from Casper?

If I had to guess, I'd say this too. What I'm wondering is anyone running more of either.

It depends on your track and driving style. I am smooth on the throttle and like a lot of off power steering and rear traction. I have 5-5-2 in my truck now on a dry dusty low to medium traction when it is watered. I may try 5-5-3 or 5-7-3

Ok so I decided to really test my sidewinder SCT ESC to make sure it would be ready for race night (Thursday) so I started chasing the kids around down stairs in tight quarters. I had prviously only run it in the driveway and on the street, nothing too hard on it. I figured if it can take some play and some 360's I would be safe for race night. About 5min in the ESC let out the magic smoke. Not good even with a fan for the 4x4 SCT's unless all you do is run some speed passes and play in low resistance areas. I pulled it out and tossed my MMp back in and WOW what a difference, the 3800 w/ MMp is really smooth, nearly as smooth as the tekin 4.5 was just runs way cooler. At any rate my story.

I was wrong about these little esc's they cannot take constant amp jolts really getting on it, it may pass for some mild play but I'm hear to say tell everyone this is proven, it cannot work. PS my scte is only 6.33lbs too!
I didn't have this experience at all. I ran the SCT system with a fan on the ESC and it ran just fine after practice and a whole night of racing. However, the motor got really hot so I put the castle motor fan on it for the next race day. I didn't have any issues racing with the SCT ESC at all, it ran like a champ and never got over 130 degree's with the fan on it. However, The motor on the other hand was running in the upper 140's even with the fan so I swapped the whole system out with a MMP and HV4.5. The MMP runs around 130 and the fan never even turns on. Unfortunately, I found the HV motor does need a fan to keep it under 150 but the HV gives the truck that little extra grunt it needs.
I'm not sure what fan you used on your SCT ESC, but apparently it wasn't up to the task
I use sunon laptop fans and they have always done the trick for me
I just need to find a sub 6lb truck to put my SCT system in now

I watched the video that losi has on "how to rebuild the diffs" and i have a ? Adam Drake says during the video that the washers b3553 (im pretty sure) are not a must, and that he doesnt run them. I wanted to know if anyone with the scte has done this?

You are the first person I've heard say that their 4.5 motor runs cooler than the 1410 motor. What timing are you running?

You may have gotten a esc with some higher quality parts, I won't ever recommend this sysytem for a 6+lb vehicle. If it cannot do it consistently, it's not an option in my book. I now know of others who have also burnt their sidewinderSCT esc's. The motor seems to run about 8' cooler on the MMp, at least from my initial checks, not sure if anyone else noticed this as well or if it was a fluke. Thursday will be the real test, I'm hoping we have enough to race as a class. If not I will be spending extra time practicing and tuning with it reguardless.

I have done this on my 8th scale cars. It frees the diff up a bit.

I have not even put my truck on the track yet and can see where the droop screws are eating up the chassis. Are most people using the droop screw pad mod from the 2.0 or limiting their shock travel? I have never done the shock limiter but it seems to me that this would be hard on the shock caps when the shocks are fully extended. Opinions?
