I have a sensored 4700 kv hobbywing motor, always temp it to keep it under 160, today one of the legs going to the came out, re-soldered it ran it and the solder melted out. I was talking to another racer and he said motor is going bad, so i soldered it again and and ran my sct for 1 min and sure enough the leg was 50 degrees higher than the other 2, can I send it in to have it rebuilt.

When i had that issue, it was too much threadlock on the lug screws. Worth a check.

I don't have threadlock on any part of the motor, but thanks

Anyone? Bueller?

The 3.1s will be able to handle more strain and heat which will allow you to gear your car up more. The internal resistance of the 3.1 is also half that of the Justock, so it will run more efficiently and your battery will last longer into the run. Beyond those hardware differences, the 3.1 is also FAR more adjustable than the Justock. Way more options for brake feel, throttle curve, etc. The speed control also has a smoother feel over the Justock. Finally, the Justock will be hard pressed to hold up to anything running a hotter motor than a 10.5. It's up to you if those advantages are worth the price difference

I don't have a whole lot of experience with Stock, so I'm not sure if that would be an advantage. On the Justock i could see it being beneficial but the v3.1 is fine as is.

looking to get a HW for a 4wd short course Teckno SCT410. Should I go with the Xerun SCT pro or spend the extra and get a Xerun 150 1/8 competition. I want to run sensored 4 pole motors since I have them.

Savox servos stutter with all esc I have used. I use a glitch capacitor andit was fine. But now my savox is just a back up. You use the sct pro with 1/8 motors? It has enough juice? Was going to go with the 18 esc for 10 bucks you get that much more. But if you really dont need it maybe ill go with the smaller footprint

The internal resistance of the 3.1 is also half that of the Justock, so it will run more efficiently and your battery will last longer into the run. Also, the 3.1 weighs quite a bit less than the Justock (59g vs 32.6g). Beyond those hardware differences, the 3.1 is also FAR more adjustable than the Justock.

There's a typo I want to clarify first. The just stock has a way smaller foot print the either 3.1 and the Justock also weighs a ton less.

If your only running local shows with a motor smaller then a 10.5 then go with the Justock. Carter is right where the 3.1 is more tuneable and you can get a better braking feel. But back to back runs with equal runs the difference is less then a second. If you're looking for getting every piece of power out of your equipment. And are running state championship type races then the v3.1 series might be worth the extra money. I personally run a justock in my 17.5 buggy and a V3.1 in my 4wd buggy and stadium.

the justock can run a motor down to 8.5T with no issue .

Yep you're right, I wrote that at work and got them switched. My mistake Will fix it.

I personally think all those throttle profiles are priceless. I agree with what you said though, the 3.1 may not be needed for what he's looking for.

Curious if anybody could help. Picked up NEW:

1) Hobbywing v3.1 Stock Spec ESC
2) Hobbywing LCD 3 in 1 program multfunction box.

My Spektrum rx/tx is bound and working fine. Got steering and throttle. I simply plug the box into the ESC and I get the 'Connecting ESC' on the LCD screen. It will 'Connecting ESC' for a few minutes and then my wheels will start turning (B5M), but nothing else. Can't make any adjustments (i.e. break, etc), just stuck on 'Connecting ESC'. V1.17_140315 is showing on the screen. Tried .18 nothing.

Also just got a new SCT Pro as well. Same thing, won't get out of 'Connecting ESC'. Looking for this LCD box to work on both.

Make sure you the the extension wire plugged in the right way. Should be white wire to the right on the esc and metal plugs on the program box side facing up.

At startup you press the ok button to advance

Thanks but tried that like 10 times. i have the stock spec in a b5m and the sct pro in a tekno sct410. I have throttle/steering/calibrated, both run great, just can't get the LCD box, for both, to get past 'Connecting ESC'.
