I have been researching awhile, and I will soon be upgrading my slash 4x4 to the Combo SHORT COURSE Tenshock SC401 + Hobbywing waterproof SC8 120A 2-4S 3500kv:
I run Fantom 2S 5000mah 50C batteries. Also meaty proline trencher 2.2/3" m2 tires. I mostly bash, but I don't want to be a puss on the track. Pavement running/speed runs are not a factor. I will mostly run 2S, but would like the option to go 3S (after dropping in a different pinion). I dont want to throw over $200 at a combo right now. A few questions:
Will my current batteries power this system?
If so, what is a torquey gearing that will give me decent top speeds on track without stressing about heat?
Am I on the right track with this combo and the 3500kv? I was considering the sidewinder castle sct system, but the quality wp esc on this one seems to edge it out. Any feedback and advise on the 3500kv appreciated.
Thanks for any help!
