Will be a shame to get that thing dirty...

Looks good. I ran the SCT Pro in 1/8 buggy tonight and that esc is just rock solid!!!

Love me some SCT Pro ESC!!!

I'm running a 1/10th 2wd Buggy with an old 7.5 (possibly buying a new 8.5/9.5 motor) and I gear it to run fairly cool. It's a B4.1 and I have it at 81/22. Would I be okay running the Stock Spec (100 amp I believe) esc? My other ESC recently was decommissioned (fire has a way of doing that ) so I'm in the market for a replacement..

I race a B4.2 and C4.2 in Mod Buggy every weekend and really like the V3.1 ESC Line. It comes in the 120 AMP version and the Stock Spec 100 amp version. In a 2wd buggy the 100 amp will run cool with no fan and perform great.

I really like the V10 Mod motors as well. They are super smooth but turn up the timing and they make killer power as well. I would suggest the 8.5 for most applications.

For gearing I have found that 81/23 or 24 is usually perfect for 8.5 on most tracks you would run 2wd buggy on.

Good Luck!

Alan

Sweet thanks for the help! Luckily for me the ONLY pinions I have are 22, 23, and 24 so this works out great

+1. Been running the SCT-Pro in E-truggy with no issues. At least once a month I see $200+ ESC's go up at the local tracks. My HW Xerun's just keep on ticking.

I have a hobbywing stock spec v3.1 i would like to put the setting in blinky mode.i put the esc in profile 2 which said no timing also set the turbo to 0. And saved the setting to the esc. Wondering if these is put into,blinky mode? ALSo is there a way to tell by the lights on the esc? So you don't have to put the program box on there.?

As long as you saved the settings to the esc and are on the no-timing profile then when you turn on the esc the red light should blink on the switch.

Good Luck

Big thumbs up to HW. Ran the SCTE yesterday at the track, esc and motor ran flawlessly. I tinkered a little more with the esc settings and pinion gear and man this thing rips. Loads of power at all ranges. I run the 4000kv motor and there are guys with slightly bigger motors however there trucks seemed way over-powered for there skill level. 4000kv suited my driving style perfectly. Plenty of power to clear jumps and plenty of (controllable) top end speed. Love the simplicity of having the programming box...makes little esc changes much easier.
Ran 4 packs for practice and 3 races. Anyone out there on the fence on which esc/motor combo to get....Go with HW products. For the price you get top quality products.
Thats coming from a non sponsored...weekend racer. I'm guessing anyone who has had issues with HW products came from user error (improper installation, improper gearing/set up or improper platform).

Thanks for the update. The 4000KV set continues to impress many including myself. I have now tested the 4000KV and the 4700KV and all I can say is the 4700KV is a beast! If you are looking for sick power go with the 4700KV. If you are looking for smooth consistant power that really doesn't give anything up anywhere... go with the 4000KV... Can't lose either way.
