It's a great motor, perfect for the Losi TEN-SCTE . Make sure you pick up the RX8 with it too. If your having trouble finding the perfect gears for this motor. Im referring to the pinions to use, go to the tekin website(www.teamtekin.com) and you will see a variety of settups that team tekin racers are using on their r.c trucks and buggies. If you help leave a email and I will post the link to where the settups are located.
Cant believe the speed this motor produces, on 2 cell batteries with an RX8 and a 15t pinion its faster than my old set up was on 3s which was a castle MMP and a 4 pole 550 2800 kv with a 17t pinion, I have to gear down to either a 13t or 14t on the track, otherwise its overkill. Temps on 15t 165ish 14t 145 13t around 130. I set my current limiter at 75
Awesome motor. My Ten SCT-E runs faster and 20 degrees cooler than my Novak 4.5 with the high torque rotor. This motor is worth every penny. TQing all day. Using a RX8 and it is buttery smooth too.
great motor. I run it in my scte and its got more power than you need
This motor is a work horse. Throws my scte around like nothing. Triples on call. Just watch heat may need to run no timing at all. No worries still a beast.
This motor is smooth and fast! Definitely a great purchase!!
Very smooth power band. I use it in my Tekno SCT410.3
Amazing little motor! I have this in my ET410 and for the larger outdoor dirt track I run it at, its perfect! I can keep up with the 8th scale (as long as I don't get ran over, LOL).
This motor is a beast it has my SCT flying. Plenty power and rpm smooth with cool temps I like it alot
This is by far my motor of choice for my 4wd short course truck. It has so much power and is nice and light. It always runs strong and cool.
I have this motor and the 550 Pro4HD 4300 Tekin motor. I run at IERC raceway with my SCTE 2.0 with 15T pinion and 40T spur. This motor is super strong and works good on tight courses. I think the 550 hits a little bit harder coming out of the turns. You deff. can't go wrong with either motor. I prefer to run the 540 over the 550 based on the current track set up (smaller jumps, not very high speed).
Verry good motor for my SCTE 2.0, temps 130-140f use pinion gear 15t
Super sweet motor! Run it in my SC10 4x4 with LRP ESC and Orion 5500 2 cell LiPo. This motor runs cooler than my LRP motor did. Great motor! No complaints.
i also run 4600 with rx8 im 6 months into rc racing went from using slash 4x4 ultimate to my current rx8pro 4 pole 4600 losi scte and im currently 10 points ahead of second i went from cmains to amains in a very short period and i attest this to my scte and tekin powerplant anyone who tells you you can get better for cheaper is off there rocker imo nothing compares thats why my tlr22sct has rspro / gen2 6.5 redline and same set for my b44.1 you wanna win use tekin
I have this and the 3300kv motor, really really smooth with a lot of couple.
I really love this motors series.
Yes it's that good with rx8 $$$ makes my losi scte fly on the track no problem making huge jumps with no speed! Put a 90 c battery on it and power is all the way to low voltage! Even used Eco power battery's 30c on it and still flys just starts to lose that punch at the end due to battery, not motor.
Running this in my SC10 4x4 FT. I agree w/ Dakota, this motor is vicious. I need practically no running start to clear triples at my local track.
One of the best out of the three they offer in this series. The 4,600kv in my terra bugger ; ) and 4,000kv in my scte ran hard and no probe. I pretty much use Tekin for it reliability and efficiency and compact size. Anyway I am not a paid spokes person just a consumer who really likes Tekin electronics, because they work for me and many other at my local track without any issues. The Pro 4's can run hot but that is why you gear it properly and don't make a user error. Take as it you will my 2 pennies. Tekin Rocks!!!!
Also motor guys, tons of power and like everyone else has said very, very smooth!!!
I am a Tekin user from day one but I will only write what I know to be the truth.
I have purchased many Tekin products. I have had two RX8 GEN2 ESC's fail and 1 motor fail. The motor was probably a fluke and the ESC's, well it happens.
For this 4300kv motor though, it didn't fail. It did cog. I bought two and they were literally miles apart in performance. I used them in the same truck on the same day under the same circumstances with the same ESC and settings and the top end speed was 4-5 mph slower on the second one I purchased. I actually could tell the very first day I put it in something was wrong due to speed and power. I tried different gears, thought about tire spin, etc. Finally, I took my son and we jumped our Tekno's on our home track. His was jumping 8-10 feet farther on both jumps we were testing on. Both jumps were made for RC. I couldn't understand so I finally walked in the house and took his motor out and out it in my truck. No other changes at all. I was landing exactly where he did and like I said, 8-10 feet farther. My wife is a science teacher and we did some testing. The amp draw was different but that was all I could find with what I had. I know Tekin makes its items in China and I am sure they do not care about RC so my guess is I received a poor motor. What sucks is the NEW motor was put into a new Tekno SCT410.3 with every upgrade possible and I just now found out why I couldn't clear triples. I thought it was chassis slapping, gearing, diff oil, suspension setup and I even changed the ESC twice, the servo once and the receiver once. Just a bad motor. In all, it was only $3,000+. I'm ready now though.
