im looking at teken redlin motors for a new sc im looking at. what is the most commonly used turn. i see there is anywhere from like 5.5 turn to 17. i know the lower the turn or kv the faster it will be.

in my slash i run the 5700 castle 4 pole. and i dont want to put that much power through the new sc. since in my slash i had to do the tmaxx axle mod to handle the power.

i will be running a castle mmp and i looking at trying sensored in the new sc. somthing close to like a 3800-4600 kv is what im thinking for power. but im not shure what turn is in that kv rating. i want it to have good acelaration for jumps with short run ups and to be insanly fast down the straigt. but i dont want to destroy the ball diff or cvds on the new truck.


the teken redlines are the motors im looking at.

For mod you should get an 8.5. That's what I'm running in my SC10 with the tekin rs in dual mode (Tekin's sensored/sensorless configuration). It's plenty fast with my convservative gearing and it runs cool as can be. What new SC truck are you looking at, Chris? Oh, and I'm assuming you are talking about 2wd, because if you are running 4wd you would be better off with the castle 4 pole 3800 or a tekin Pro 4.

im looking at getting a factory team sc10. i have raced my slash for awile and have upgraded it with lcg and lightwieght parts to try and race aginst the sc10 and blitz cars i have just reached the most i can get of of the chassis. the sc10 seems to turn sarper and all around handle better. im hoping to have it all set up and ready for the hank.

after putting my rc8t truggy together i can see why you see more associateds or even losi ant the track. it is because they are better race cars.

ill still keep my slash and put the traxxas speed control and motor in it and keep it as a basher with the revo. since it would then be able to handle moisture and can drive it more than i do now with the mmp.

Chris for 2wd SC I suggest going with the Redline 10.5 motor. You can turn the timing up on your MMP esc if you feel the need to get going way to fast! yeah.gif

If you have a smooth trigger finger and have the slipper adjusted right it should be fine. If you get a factory team sc10 just make the swap to hex wheels and you shouldn't have a problem there.

im looking at the tekin redline sensored 8.5 for my sc10 2wd. is the reedy about the same power as the tekin redline 8.5 motor. im hoping to have my sc10 ready to go for the hank. currently im having trouble fiqureing out how to bind my castle creations mamba max pro speed control to my spectrum dx3.0 radio, i had the same problem when i tried putting it in my slash. it glithes the throttle wenever i steer the car.

Glitching when you try to steer is most likely a "Brown Out" from the servo drawing too much juice. A spektrum Voltage protector or Novak Glitch Buster are cheap and easy fixes, they simple plug into an empty slot in your receiver.

And if that doesn't work a CC BEC will get the job done. It's a little more work but will definitely fix the problem. Bring it with you if you go to Wenatchee this weekend.
