So I'm thinking about getting the 3800 SCT combo. I'm using my Slash 4x4 as an MT though with 4.87" Trencher tires. Is the combo ESC up to the task? I've estimated the weight of my truck at about 6.3 pounds using Traxxas' site and SPC site using their weight listing. The only thing I'm not 100% sure of is the additional weight the Trenchers and possible castle system impose.
Here are my estimations:
Slash 4x4 = 5.025lb http://traxxas.com/products/models/e...platinum-specs
SPC Battery = .69lb http://spcracing.com/index.php?productID=59
Trenchers = .5lb over stock (adding 2oz per tire so .5lb total)
Est. Total = 6.215lb
The only unknown is how much more the Castle 3800kv system weighs Vs the VXL stocker.
Castle lists the SCT combo good up to 6.5 pounds. I'm thinking it'll work. Here's my logic:
Castle engineers and marketing reps said that it's on par with the MMP just not as many tuning options.
Most importantly, the MMP SCT system is also listed as a 6.5lb max so what gives?
