Questions?? Difference bewteen Castles SCT 3700kv motor and SV3 5700kv Motor

I wondering what the difference between the Castle SCT 3700kv 4 pole motor and my Castle 5700kv 4 pole motor. Is the SCT version bigger? Why can I not just use my 5700kv motor thats on my stadium truck on my SCT instead of buying the SCT version? The weight isn't that much difference is it? Thanks

The sct is a longer can which is meant for light 4x4 scts. The normal 5700 is meant for lighter 2wd off-road cars or 4wd type inroad cars.

I would not say that either...

It would work, and it would be fast, but it kind of depends on your goal with it.

If you just run up and down streets and parking lots for poops and giggles, sure, it will most likely be fun and faster than your buddy.

If you run on any sort of off road track, or really off road at all it will be very hard to control.

ok sounds good, the plan is to race it at the track. I will have to try them out both and see what works best. Thanks for all the input everybody.

Castle 5700kv should work fine in a 2wd, you might have to gear down a bit depending what motor you had on your SCT before. The 5700 is pretty quick on 2s.

The 3800kv would be overkill in a 2wd.

I would say it depends on the surface. I run the 3800 in a 2wd durango on turf, it's not overkill. Yes, alot of the time I am never near full power, but their are times I can and do use all of it.

Yeah that's true. Overkill might not have been the best word. It can still work in a lighter 2wd and depending on the surface and the track the extra torque can come in handy.
