I'm running a 4600 w/Jammin SCRT and Turnigy 65C batts. It's a monster. The only problem is that the motor gets a bit toasty. I'm running a MMP with it. I'm thinking all the extra amps available for the motor gets it a bit warm. I may follow what the Pro4 guys are doing and turning on the current limiter to get the temps down. I just don't want to loose any grunt.

I like to keep temps in line while running most of a pack. Those racing with a shorter main shouldn't have an issue.

I think the 4000 might be better for me then. I'm still a newb when it comes to racing and the Jammin will be my first 4x4. I am going to run the Jammin a little light (most likely an RC Monster chassis) so I bet the 4000 will scoot it around the track w/ authority. Will probably take care of the heat issue too, eh?

The 4000 is plenty of motor. Especially since you can increase timing or gear it accordingly because your running a lighter car would not be much trouble. Heck most 2wd buggy drivers run 4000kv (8.5) or 10.5 motors with similar FDRs as my truck on our tight 1/10 track

go with the 4000, it's PLENTY fast. Moves my scte along just fine. More than enough to toast 4.5's all day long. If I could drive, taht is.

Awesome. I thought I might go with the combo from China but I think getting it piecemeal (SC8 / Tenshock) will be about the same cost and a LOT more support. Hobbypartz still selling the SC8 new version for the best price? Been a while since I did comparative shopping for an ESC. And BuiltRC still the place to go for the motor by itself?

Hobbypartz is bit expensive. Try largescaleremotecontrol.com they are cheaper. Also combo from china will be cheapest route esp with free shipping from aliexpress.

This is what i get for not reading 62 pages of Tenshock thread... page 4 Tenshock co themselves say:

---

If for hobby, i suggest 4600kv, the battery can have longer life. If in track matches, i suggest 5200KV:
For example:
Jammin SCRT 10 +14T+4600KV+5300mah,30C,2s1p: have faster start and much power
Jammin SCRT10+12T+5200mah,30c,2s1p: RPM is higher, speed in racing is faster.
For ESC, i suggest you 120A, SC8 is better. You'd better choose a bigger ESC, which is safe in case of any accidents.

---

Guess I got more reading to do. Scary when these threads get so big, how much info is hidden in here is just staggering.

I found the 4000kv to run wayyy cooler than the 4600. In the summer time ambient temps were 107, and my motor max was 165, 2s. 4k is still insanely fast and a crap load of toque. had to tuner esc down a notch lol.

I was running a pair of tenergy 2s 20c 5000mah together as a 10000mah for more runtime in my 4000kv tenshock powered slash 4x4. Well for more runtime and so I don't kill 2 good lipos cause the tenshock draws so much amps well run them paired for 200 amps of juice the batteries still got hot and desoldered one of the negative wires. That was after about 15 or 20 continuous laps. I noticed a big drop in power and the truck started to stutter on 1 lipo. I only ran 1 lap on a single 20c and I pulled it of the track and checked the voltage on the packs and they were both at 70%. The track is 60x100 so its not tiny but it's not huge. The power on 2 packs was great and the extra weight seemed to help with traction. I got my lipo fixed and I will be at it again and see how long it will actually run for.

I have 2 4000mAH cheap turnigys on order. Gonna try the same thing as you. a total of 8000 mah. The problem with this motor is it drops the battery voltage so fast that the lvc kicks in. I have had runs wherein it only took about 2000mAH from a 5000 mah gens ace but the lvc had kicked in. If those 2 4ks batts kill themselves, then going for 3 45C nanotechs (11 mm height and 2650 mAH ). My rcmonster tray shud be able to protect the soft packs just fine.

Mine ran flawless until I lost one pack, it actually fel a little better than my single 40c 5000 turnegy maybe because the weight I was able to Put the power down better. Either way I got my lipo fixed and I hope to be out this Sunday rujning again at the track.
