Default Motor temps for 4600kv

I'm running the sc401 4600kv with the SC8 ESc in a SC10 4x4, 12t pinion, 62t spur. Finding the temps of motor around 150 after 5-7 min heats. the track is loose with many tight turns. have the timing at 0 in ESC.

Are others finding that the motor runs a little hot compared to say a 1410 from Castle? What is a safe temp this motor can run at?

When geared for the same top speed, they are about the same. The guys with 3800's are coming off around 160-170 here as well on the big outdoor track.

You are safe for 200 degrees easy, but I would try to keep it under 180 if possible.

Default setting-up slipper

Ok guys, I'm new with the slipper thing....can someone point me or describe how to properly set this up on the sc10 4x4? Is there a basic bench test I can do, then take it out on the track to verify?

oops posted in wrong thread, but maybe someone on this one knows!!!

I have the 4600 in my Sc10 4x4 and wouldn't see the need for more kv. That being said, if you did get the 5200, I suppose you could always just turn down the e.p.a for throttle.

Wouldn't the 5200 run a little hotter than the 4600? Mine runs around 160 after 7 min using 12/62 in the SC10 4x4, and I wouldn't want it any hotter than that. I find the design of the Sc10 4x4 doesn't leave much air movement room around the motor, and I'm even thinking of putting a fan on it.

With the SC8 esc/4600 combo, what esc settings work best for optimum temps/minimal cogging/etc.?

I run that combo in a SC10 4x4 and have the timing at 0. Cogging is normal for a sensorless (only at crawl speed), but it performs great above that.

Mine was a little hot, so I turned the timing to 0, but you will need to play with it yourself to see what you like.
