    Picked up the CC SV3 4600Kv

    So I have the SCT 3800Kv in the P4de and was looking to replace the brushed set up in the MJ. I got a good price on the CC SV3 4600kv kit so I went for it.
    So now...which should go in what truck?
    kinda of thinking that the P4de should get the 4600 and put the 3800 in the MJ?
    Thoughts?

    I would think the 4600 kv would be better suited for the 2x4 pede and leave the 3800 kv in the 4x4. I've read the 4600kv must be geared very carefully or it is prone to overheating because the motor was intended for 2wd buggies on a track. Therefore, putting the 4600 in the lighter truck would better suit the motor, but even then it will be prone to overheating.

    OK. I geared it down once. If needed I can lower it more. Will the 4600kv have more power though? I run 2s 50c 5000mah SPCs.

    I have to agree. 4600 will do better in the 2wd with less drivetrain to start and stop.


    Just my 2 cents

    Besides the different Kv rates, the 3800 is the more powerful of the two. I agree with the general opinion here: 4600 in the 2WD.

    I have a 3800kv and a 5700kv motor I switch in and out of my Pede. I have to say I like hte 5700 in it better. They both have enough torque to wheelie any time I want but the 5700 has more top end IMO. If it were me I would go with the 4600 in the P4de.

    Just wondering. Would you still do it that way if you only had a 2WD and a 4x4 and just the 3800 and 4600?

    I'm just curious what gearing you run with a 5700?

    Either way I go..its a far better improvement over the brushed motor! I'm sure I'll have to adjust the slipper for my son.

    I understand and even agree that given the two motors and the two vehicles being discussed I see the logic in putting the 3800 in the 4wd Pede. I just like the way the 5700 I have performs in my Pede better for the type of driving I do. I must admit the 3800 in a 2wd truck is IMO not a great match because it will have so much torque it will be harder to drive with all 4 tires on the ground

    My P4de with the 5700 is geared 12/54 but I am not on Monster Truck tires I Have 2.8" Dirt Hawgs on it so it is set up more like a Stadium Truck with a Truggy look to it than a Monster Truck.

    I too am running the same wheel and tyre combo dads using and will say you don't need a super low kv motor to have tons of fun if geared right since I have started running the new tyres I have gone up another two teethbut I would use the 3800kv in the 4x4 and the 4600kv in the 2wd.........peace

    I have 16t pinion and stock spur in the MJ now I believe. Should I go lower with the 4600?

    Are running the 4600kv in the pede 4x4 if so the lower the better like 9-10t but like I said put the 3800kv in the 4x4 it would be better suited for the job......peace

    Got some great bash time in this weekend. The MJ is a rocket! The P4de needs somethih... not sure if its to tighten up the slipper nor gear up q tad. We DESTROYED the body on it.
    Kids and I had a blast. Ohh the OFNA servo inserts strip out so dang easy on the hired. And the inserts are splined right. Not sure non the . . . there but I was getting a little tired replacing those inserts every battery run.
