yes the pro4 hd is overkill for my track especially, I've seen some guys at my track running the hd and its ridiculous! If not tamed down unless you have very good throttle control, if I bashed more then raced I'd def. pick up the hd

The 4600kv pro 4 is where its at if you insist on Tekin. I ran the 4000 kv and it was too slow at my track. Couldnt keep the nose up in the air either . Truck (scte) weighed 6.11oz. Same truck with 4600 and I couldnt be happier. The guys running the HD at my track have to run some large MAh packs to make 10 minutes. If you go the Pro 4 route , the right esc is a integral part of the equation to get the performance out of the motor you will be looking for.

Pair it with an RX8 Gen 2, run the current limiter at 75-85 range, NO timing, and gear it 14/40. This will be a good all-around starting point.
You don't need anymore info then this.

Can't go wrong with an RX8 and a Pro4 motor!
I ran a 4000 Pro4 in my SCTE and I thought it was amazing! But if you run on big tracks, go ahead and get the 4600!

A guy at our track has the rx8 esc and the pro4 hd 4300 and it is crazy fast. I may just lean that way. The track is adding 30' more to the straight so some speed maybe needed.

The 4300 isnt faster than the 4600, both top out about the same when geared right. The HD just has an explosive bottom end.
