the spx8 is for 1/8 scale. honestly check out some1s used sphere comp or spx as they are dirt cheap right now w/all the onroaders jumpin to the tekin as fast as they can.

honestly, i wouldnt suggest the x12 motors. in offroad its hard to screw up but their motors are the 1s goin back for warranty or trash bin. put a duo2, sp, or tekin motor in depending on which wind or class ur running.

have fun, welcome

Ok, i didnt know about that. So far ive been using a lrp charger for the battery gear of my nitro (radio battery, start box battery etc) and i'm completely satisfed. Apart from that l know nothing about electric market. So you might be right afte all. Anyway what about motor's turns. Whats the general rule about that? I've heard that less turns means more power, more turns more high speed or the opposite i dont know. How many turns should a motor have and which motor turn do you think is the right one for b4?

thanks for welcoming!

10.5 is the general motor of most tracks. Tekin is a really good company and lrp is good too. Less turns on motor equals more speed. 17.5 motors are used in a stock class. 13.5 is used in a superstock class. Mod equals anything goes.

check ur local track for rules and regulations. see what they run. if its usually just mod, then go with a 10.5, u can do just about anythin with that wind.

here in the states its interestin that on the east coast, generally 13.5 is seen as stock (older rules). whereas west part of the US goes by 17.5 being stock (newer rules).

Well What are the plans raceing or just having fun . indoor or out door. If you are new and would like to start in novice/ Stock. best place to beginer would be teking with timing boost option ? called HOT WIRE. I use only in stock on road.. in door clay track 60+90 feet off road I use the LRP sxx with X12 9.5 and am very happy with this set up. in Mod class.

also with stock you will need newer 35 or 40 C batterys. they have more punch.

Mod it is not needed softer older 20 c work well.

If you are going to start raceing go to track and check out whats in the pits of some faster guys and take a look.

This isn't correct, A cut spring is more linear. The origional length of the black spring will be more progressive.

Removing 2 coils puts the spring almost directly inbetween a full black, and a full green.

So less turns more speed.. I've seen people running their 2wd with 6.5 and even less. What about that, is it even better or just pointless for this class. Because 2wd electric are superlight cars and they need speed not power. So even less than 10.5 would be perfect or not?
Sorry for being annoying!

run what the fast guys run, if you can handle below a 6.5, which is crazy for a buggy.

Both! Exactly what i've doing with nitro car, getting used to the car for a while and then racing. So mod class probably.

Thank you all guys for your help just got the general idea for 2wd motors.
Keep having fun!

Generally, 6.5 and under are used b pros because the motor has so much power that it can destroy your car. If you get a tekin speedo control, you can make a 10.5 into a 7.5. That's how fast you can go.

It advances the timing onthe motor. Timing is the pulses the motor uses to spin the rotor. More timing equals mor pulses which equals more speed. It uses more of you battery but now a days, no one cars because of lipos. And if you retard you timing, it gives you more punch and less speed.

It's not that the tekin "makes" the 10.5 like a 7.5, but rather taps into the full potential of any given motor with it's new dynamic timing making it much faster than with a typical esc.
