    Ok... the RX8 seemes to be a top ESC. The question is what pro4 motor? 4000kv or 4600kv?

    Describe the track condition where you race?; or better yet post some pictures.

    What kind of batteries do you use? mah? C rating?

    I run my car on road and on a small carpet off-road track with a acceleration lane of about 20 meters and a lot of low speed passages (I hate the stuttering of the stock motor). Thats why I think about a sensored motor.

    Ive got three 2c 4200mAH lipos 25c and want to buy some lipos with about 40c and 5000mAH. I dont need much more punch than the stock motor. Is the Pro4 4000kv the right choice and can I compare the Kv rates of different motors?
    Am I right when I say, that the Tekin Pro4 4000kv is a little bit faster and smoother in low speed passages as the Castle 1410 3800kv?

    If it's a small, technical track then I would use the 4000kv. I get plenty of punch geared at 15/52 with 20% of esc timing. I use the 4600kv at larger 1/8 scale tracks. Either motor will be a huge upgrade over the stock setup. You will need to invest some 2s Lipos with a higher mah and C rating.

    Thanx for confirming my thoughts pal.
