What are everyone's opinion about putting a castle 3800 with sv2 in, does it sound like it would work for mild trail usage? This is my first four wheel drive, am used to a rustler, thanks for all input.
I would go Mamba Max pro on the Telluride. You would be running hot on the castle 3800 sv2
You shouldnt have any problems running the Sv2 on 2s all day long. If you run 3s then i'd totally suggest the MMP or the new Sv3. I think some of the Sv2's had fans on the ESCs if you have one of those you would be ok running 3s then. Since you plan on running it as a trail truck there is no need for a 3s then, so then you will be ok. Whatever you do keep an eye on Motor & ESC temps for the first couple of runs until you feel comfortable with the setup.
The 3800kv is a good little motor and works realy nice in a 4wd with smaller tires like that.
