Default Best setup for 2wd sct

I'm looking to update the electronics in my pro-line pro-2.
Looking at the hobbywing sct pro esc, and either the Tekin pro-2 or redline gen-2.... 4-pole vs 2-pole.
All my track running is outdoors on medium sized tracks.
What kv/turn would be optimal for each motor.

Thanks

The SCT Pro is too much for 2wd. It's more of a 4x4 esc. Go with something like the Hobbywing Xtreme Stock 3.1 ESC and a 8.5T motor like the Reedy Mach2 which is 4636kv. More than enough power. Any of the Tekin Gen2 motors are great as well....10.5 or 8.5T will work.

I kinda like the idea of the sct pro for the esc for the simple fact that it is so versatile..... It could be used in any vehicle down the road.... And they are cheap

So a redline gen2 8.5t Is plenty??? Roughly what kv is that???

I have the SCT Pro in my two wheel paired with a redline 8.5 and although I agree the speedo is overkill, it doesn't hurt anything running it in a two wheeler. I never have to worry about it overheating! The only drawback is it has a large footprint and probably a few grams heavier than the comparison.

My main concern was the footprint.

Yea, it seems like the RC cars nowadays are getting thinner and thinner. Soon we'll need ESC's that are the size of a dime...especially for 2wd buggy.

Hey guys:
I've been doing a little more research, and have decided on a Tekin RSX/ gen2 redline combo. My Lhs will give me a great deal and I love what I have read on the RSX.
The question now is 8.5t or 7.5t???
If I go 7.5t I could always adjust the current limit down if it is too much.
