    Another question

    Hey guys, I have 2wd and a 4wd pede. I recently gutted a losi speed t that I had traded for on craigslist and added the 4600kv xceloin motor/esc to the 2wd. I am thinking the bigger 4600k would do better in the 4wd and the stock vxl should go in the 2wd. What are your thoughts on this, any pros or cons to ether set up. I will be running 3s in the 4x4, so of I switch the motors I would have 4600kv on a 3s. Sounds fun

    That setup would get hot in the 4x4 on 3s. But saying that dadx2mj runs 5700kv 4 pole in his and he loves it so give it a try dude

    I Think it will run hot too, is it a 4 pole motor? I think dadx2 is running a 5700 4pole with good results, not sure if on 2s or 3s.

    No experience with that motor and am not sure if it is a 4 or 2 pole motor.

    Just yesterday i pulled the 5700 4 pole from the Pede and put the 3800 kv 4 pole back in it. Just wanted to switch things up and mostly wanted to see what the 5700 4 pole would do in my Rusty

    There is a difference but not what I would call a "big" difference. 3800 does not have quite the top end but has more punch and torque and runs a little cooler. I think the 3800 will pull a wider variety of gears as well.
