I would assume the power will make up for the weight of a 550 can? I tried a 550 can while back as a back up on a lightened scte and could feel the weight immediately ,did not like it at all.The price is gonna be a killer for sum as well!!

Yes, the power is worth it... Think 1/8 E buggy type power.

I've had no issues running my Protek 70c and 100c packs with this motor during testing. Others that also tested have had no issues running batteries from Losi, Thunderpower, and others.

The 4300kv paired with 2 7000 mah 2 cells in parallel. You could prolly run for 45 mins

Yeah maybe 45 may be a little out of reach

Dunno seems possible. If roar removes the silly 7 pound ebuggy rule. I put only 4500mAH back in my 80C 7200 IP lipos after a 6 minute main with 1-2 minutes of warm up now. Pair two of those up, get it close to SCT410 weight and on paper we good .

So that means you're draining about 550-600mAH for every minute of running. This value is pretty standard for the latest and greatest 4pole power hungry motors. So even when running high capacity lipos in parallel, 25 minutes is probably more realistic.

Still trying to fathom why it would be more expensive than a T8?
