I want to have my slash converted to where I can tear up some soccer type fields (mowed but not that low)
Mip's all around
I'm assuming I would need a better motor than the stock. I was thinking TENSHOCK SC401 3800kv V2+HOBBYWING WATERPROOF SC8 120A
Would that do the trick ( I would also like to have some torque for some hill climbing)
Anything else you would recommend?
I'd look into the cc 2400 combo, if bashing is in your blood this combos for u full on work horse !!
I have to agree with Es Tkenny! I have the 2400 MMP and the 2400 SCT in my two trucks! I am extremely happy with that motor system! Plenty of power, gobs of torque and can be geared for speeds well above 50mph! I have Integy heatsink with single fans on both trucks for cheap insurance. I haven't had either motor ever get hot enough to where I cannot keep my finger on them for less than twenty seconds. I also like to cool the motors to room temperature after I run them. Good luck finding a system that works for you!

The ESC you're thinking about would be good, but a larger motor would be better. The castle 2400 would be the appropriate size and power. There are cheaper comparable motors to it, if cost is an issue.
Yah I want to keep the cost down. If I wanted to spend close to a few hundred I would definitely grab a CC MMP. What would be a suitable cheaper more powerful motor, I like the esc since its waterproof
3674-540xl-6t. Google it. Should be around $40.
Also, the Losi SCTE 2800kv motor would work well. It's pretty much a rebranded castle 2400, and can be had for around $40 used online.
Or go for the tenshock v2 3400kv and run 2s and 3s with a 15-17t pinion with no temp problems and it will have all the torque you would need unless you are a power junkie and go for the castle 2400kv but you will need 3s and 4s to get the best out of it.....peace
Famous last words...watch this!!!!
Would the 3400 give more power? Should I go with that one.
I run the 2.8 Trenchers with the Hobbywing waterproof SC8 120A and their 3400kv motor on 3s geared 14/54. Works great for blasting through mid - high level grass. Temps not too bad. Around 160°F ....MAX!! Usually gets around 140°. (Still a little cool out here. Ambient around 60-65°.)
