When you compare the Stock with the received replacement they were identical, so "yes" to answer you question, did not need pics to point out the obvious but yes I did see the upgraded pics that were posted.

Geez was a simple statement to be informative, I did not know I was going to be lambasted and hurt feelings...

No problem as I am sure this helped someone, so I will take the bullet , for all.

Anyone do any top speed tests with the Castle 3800? Please include gearing info. Just curious. the guy I bought my 3800 said it was slow on the straight aways and I wanna make sure I don't have a motor issue. It seems like it tops out at about 28-32 mph on 16 tooth with 20c 3s 5000mah. Gonna thrown my 40-50c 3s and see how that goes.I ll also throw my GPS to get some exact speeds.Might be I'm just used to my castle 1512 2650 tearing it up super fast style.

13/40 , Stock Eclipse tires, 65c 5300mah, 30-31 MPH on pavement, speed was clocked with a radar gun. Same Castle 3800 SCT setup in the 'T' companies 4x4 was 31-32 mph which was running AKA Gridirons. Not much difference in tire diameter between the two.

No matter what gearing you are throwing in your SCRT10 it ain't gonna be slow with the Castle 3800kv on 3s. I run mine on an indoor track with the stock 13t pinion on 2s and the thing is a beast. If I went outdoors I'd bump up a couple teeth.

Edit: Sorry, thought I was in the Jammin thread. Comments probably apply to the Losi truck though.

On 3S?? It should be really fast. I felt mine was fast enough for a big 1/8 scale track on 2S geared with 16T. Something isn't right there.

Thanks yes it's kinda laggy also(3800)..Maybe I need to go back into my MMP and mess with the settings also. Maybe try some different timing. Has anyone tried the TEKIN 2650 in the SCTE? I am thinking about trading my castle 2650 in for a tekin 2650. Just curious if anyone has feedback on this idea?

The backorder on this truck is ridiculous. I placed my order Feb 20th. First its BO'd till 4/6, then 5/20 then the date changes to 4/15 now its June 20th.

the waiting game is upsetting. I guess this gives me time to touch the ASC 4x4.

I am running the T8 2650KV in mine and it is a missile. Using an 18T Pinion 2s 60c 6000MAHand tops out right around 30 with my guess. No timing and i have the current limit at 70percent. Going to pick up a 20T and run it tonight. Temps are about 115 on the motor after 10mins and only 100-105 on the RX8.

Where there is a will, there is a way. Knock yourself out if you want to wait.

If I wanted used, I'd get a used one. I hope you weren't taking a shot at me

Not any more of a shot than you were taking by mentioning ASC. This truck is the bomb. I'd get it used if I had to. A little windshield washer fluid/WD40 bath and it looks new after every run.

I didnt mean anything by mentioning ASC.. Sorry if it came out like that. I dont need a $500 truck. I just need the roller. I have had bad luck with used equipment on here as well. If I had to choose between a used one now, or a new one eventually, I'll choose the new one.

Had I known the BO date would change this often I woudln't have sold my Hyper 10sc when I did.

If you want new its worth the wait. Bought mine new off the for sale thread. The value on that Hyper is only going to go down anyway.

I, for one, am OUTRAGED that a plastic bumper broke on someone's 4wd off road racing vehicle as a result of another vehicle smashing into it. I am boycotting all Losi products forever.
