the 3800 can power a stock scte better than any 550 motor available.. it will be just fine in your sc10 4x4. The sc10 should be light enough to use the stock esc if you wanted.. but highly suggest getting the mmp, mm or rx8 instead. enjoy.

For anyone else reading.. the best motor in this class is the 1410 from castle.. i've used the tekin 4.5 and the ae 4.5 and a few guys I know have used the novak 4.5's with and w/o the tuning rotor. Go w/ the 1410

I agree. I've used and currently own the SC4X 5.5 and CC 1415 and I would choose the CC 1410 over both of those motors. Its fast, lightweight, runs cool, etc. For the price, it can't be beat. I'm going to sell my CC 1415 and MMP so I can purchase another CC 1410. I'm currently using an RX8 and 1410 on my SCTE. I can run 10+ minutes EASILY with this combo.

I would have gone for less torque and more speed.

Are you planning on wireing your receiver directly off the battery for a solid 7.4 volts, or are you going to use the BEC on the ESC?

Yes, that's enough torque.

still debating. Just dont want any issues with it being so hard to get at. I don't see fixing a servo at the track as being real easy with this car. I also really want the weight. They are so smooth. I had a 94780 in my SCTE and it was fine. My truck should be planted with that servo, an rx8, 4.5 balistic and 305 gram batteries.
