    Honestly, the Redline SC4X 5.5 is a out dated motor, compared to the PRO4 540 motors. I run the 4000kv in a slash 4x4, geared for 35mph on a 30sec. track. Regardless of the motor you purchase the firmware you choose makes a big difference. I suggest comparing 1.32 (wild) 1.45 (mild, more lingerer) depending on the traction at your track. JMHO

    From what I have read, some like the new 550 HD 3500kv for a tight track, and others prefer the 4300kv for larger tracks, the motor likes to be geared up two teeth on the pinion, from the stock gearing. While others are disappointed with the HD motors, on getting the power to the ground, just too much power for the track conditions.

    Pro4s sell fairly cheap used. I picked up one for my wraith for 70 or 80.

    Sent from my phone.

    No. The one I picked up was a 3300kv Pro4, non-HD. If it can move a 8lb Wraith with 5.5in soft tires at 20+ mph all day, it should have no problem in a pede at the track. The 3500 and 4300 HD are only rated for 2S, just so you know. The longer HD can would help with potential heat issues though.

    They are most definitely 4 pole or they would get destroyed in a Wraith. And they have the same 18.5 rotor as the HD.
