Timing is turned off mate, (0) setting within the MMP

I can live with the cogging and will try to tune it out if I can

Agree the motors look great for the price

Given that the loaded kv of the 4600 is around 4000kv

Curious what the loaded kv of the 4000kv motor is, any ideas ?

Cheers

i have had no such cogging issues with my 4600 and RC8. of course there is a little bit of cogging at crawling speeds that all sensorless motors have, but after that it's pretty smooth.

Do you mean RX8? Because my 4600 and Tekin RX8 also only cog very slightly at start and crawling speeds. I like my Tenshock 4600, but I find that I still turn much faster laps with the sensored Tekin SC4X 4.5t 550 motor even though the Tekin has much less torque and punchiness. It's just smoother and more predictable on power.

If someone would make a 4 pole sensored 550 motor in the 4000-5000kv range, I would be in heaven.

Tenshock what do you say?

i meant SC8, the hobbywing esc. i turned down the throttle expo with my tenshock and i find that the power feels pretty smooth to me now. i have also got a fews/races laps under my belt with it so i'm getting used to it more. it might just be that you're more used to the tekin and given more time with your tenshock, the lap times might be there.

Just wanted to let you guys know I relay all information directly back to the MFG so keep it coming.

There will be a sensored 8th scale motor available later in the year along with lower kv versions of the 802. I would think a sensored version of the SC401 is a real possibility though.

Which version of the motor are you running ?

What ESC and battery are you using ?

What theoretical speed does the 13t mean you are geared for ?

Cheers

Weird I ran my 4600 in my scte today and after 7 min it was only about 135. I run a big fan and heatsink though.

Seems like a nice budget motor capable of decent speeds

1600 watts on 3s and 62 mph is not too shabby

Try to run the 4 pol SC401 on 15 Degrees timing
I run my 22xx ones with 22-26 on the ezrun 150A
Tenshock like higher timing and do run cooler

Thanks mate I will give that a try

Just recieved the X802 2400kv to try in my Slash, will be interesting to compare it to the SC401 4600

What speed do you have the 6 pole setup for in your buggy ?

Do you know the loaded kv of the X802 ?

I am going to start with 50 mph or so on 3s

Currently running the SC401 on a Castle MMP but also recieved a Trackstar 150 that I am going to try

Any problems shortening the motor wires on these fellas ?

Cheers

Doesnt make sense that the added timing would lower temps or make any difference to the cogging

I will test the 6 pole motor with and without timing and post the results here

Cheers
