    I have the 3800 SCT in my 4x4 Slash and love it! It has a lot more power than the VXL, which might be a problem in the 2x4, especially if you don't adjust your expo.

    It's a term used far more in the flying crowed.
    They refer to it as softening up the controls.
    Start and End point's if you will,punch or traction control.
    Also known as tuning your transmitter.
    Does that help at all?

    WP-SC8 ESC plus Tenshock 401 or Tenshopck 411 or Hobbywing. First 2 will need very good batteries (high mah high C) as they have big draw according to feedback. All 4 pole, all lots of power, all work in a 2wd slash - think the tenshock may have 5mm shaft thought so new pinion may be in order. Personally can't rate my WP-SC8 and Hobbywing combos highly enough.

    I have a hobbywing 80amp Esc and a tacon 2150kv motor geared 23/58 at 32 pitch. I am averaging 43-45mph with top end clocked at 49mph.

    If you're asking for the best that's Tekin. New gen2 RS is tearing up the track.

    +1 on Hobbywing

    I too run the WP-SC8 ESC w/ the 4000kv 4 pole combo ($130). I run a 86t spur and a 20t pinion. I have never seen my motor temps over 115*. I have a Rusty converted to a Slash 2wd with the STRC LCG kit. I have no problems keeping up with the "factory" racers. As a matter of fact i even placed 3rd last night.
