    Thank you very much

    I have the 2400 system. It is a great system. Have had it for a year without any problems at all! I am looking for something new with more power. If not the 2400 will still be great!

    im going to be using mamba max pro, it handles up to 6s, which is more than enough for a T8. I just know that from what ive seen the mamba max pro ESC leaves more room for the motor, since its longer.

    Personally I think you will be disappointed with the T8, dont think it will have a heap more power than the Castle

    I'd grab a Castle 2200kv and run 6s

    MMP should run it fine, only other option is the RX8

    Crusey, I want to stay with 4s. What would be the best motor on 4s, in your opinion?

    I would be finding out what sort of power the T8 motors are capable of before buying one

    The larger Castle motors will run cooler and allow you to push a little harder

    I run the Tenshock X802 (2400kv) and it runs substantially cooler than the Castle 2400 when pushed hard

    I just replaced the MMP/2400 for MMM/2650, and it is great, geared 54/20 on 3s you can notice the diff with the other system. On the first run I was affraid to go full throtle LOL !!!. Tekin motors are great, and they run smoother since they are sensored.

    Crusey, thats exactly what I'm looking for! That is your suggestion? Is it a 5mm rotor?
    Rc-Fan the 2650 system is that much more powerful running the same Lipo? Is the gearing the same?

    I had the 2400 geared 54/17 or 19, the 2650 is geared 54/20, both on 3s I feel more power with 2650, I don't have any other test since I just replaced ,and ran it once.

    The T8s are good strong motors, run them with the RX8 esc. I have several in operation in 4x4 Pedes, Slash MT and a Summit. Very smooth and easy to control, throttle is very linear.

    Nobody suggested they werent

    He allready has a Castle 2400 and wants to know if its a worthwhile upgrade

    I have never seen any datalogging for a T8 so have no idea what they are capable of

    How do you have it geared in the Slash and what temps do you see ?

    Cheers

    If anyone has the data to compare the Castle and Tekin 2650 motors, that would be great!

    a castle 2650 kv will be very powerful and can even run 6s... but tekin can handle 4s which is plenty and is sensored
