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.
