I had this same idea... even wrapped the thing in foil. Have since removed the foil and the sensor wire runs right along the motor wires and I still don't have the issue.

And I gave up on bullet connectors for anything but my nitro starter box... They just really aren't meant for off road.

And the what you guys are calling the spring type bullets or bird cage... they are called banana plugs. Only meant to be used as charging leads, and nothing else. They aren't rated for ANY real kind of amp load.

Glad you got it sorted. It's a frustrating problem for sure.

Agree that the "spade" type bullet is the better choice -- I was already using that. (Protek parts from A-main). Maybe the nanotech batteries have a slightly "sloppier" receptacle than other brands, I had to "adjust" the spades a bit to get a solid contact.

Hobbywing/ FalconSEKIDO has announced that they are doubling the period the warrenty is in effect. I honestly dont think you will ever need it but it's good insurance.

i must say i added a bec (spectrum) and my scte ran awesome with a sctpro..... i did it because i was running a savox servo, so i must say if you are thinking about grabbing one it is a perfect unit for any short course truck... i might run one in a 22sct!!!!

Just make sure you won't have to be in blinky mode as there is no blinky mode with the sct pro lol.

Isn't it funny how spectrum's and savox don't play well together. I have no problems with my SCT pro, Airtronics, savox combination.

Extreme Stock is a good choice. Light and compact. Smooth and fast. Fits very nicely on the latest buggies like the 22 and DEX210. We do not need to run the fan.

True that! I myself use extreme stock without all punch/turbo stuff for smoother feel. Works great!!

MowingGrass- Here is the part number for the combo I would suggest: 81040230 This is the 150A Speed control, 2200kv motor and programing box. If you would like a little less power the 81040220 has the 1800KV motor, with the same as listed above. I would go with the 2200kv.
