honestly you cant go wrong with either combo. the 4 pole castle motors are great and from what ive heard the rx8 is really smooth. the castle products are extremely easy to setup, where i found that the tekin stuff was a little more difficult.

but like i said, can't go wrong with either!

Well its hard to say what it is worth so you have to decide on that. The MMP with the 3800 4 pole for the dollar is very hard to beat. The Castle software is easier to use (I have both Tekin and Castle software and setup both at our track for most racers so I'm very familier with both setups).

I just think for the money the MMP with the 3800 motor is awesome and a real beast that no company has had an answer for in that price range. for 20 bucks more I would add the Castle 10 amp external BEC and you will have a killer setup. I watch every weekend guys run the 3800 Castle 4 pole in the very heavy Losi 4wd SC and it is scary and every more wicked in the lighter Associated.

Either way they both do rip.

Yeah I'm looking for a fast setup for my SCTE. I hear the tekin SC 4.5 is really fast. What speed control is best for it?
