I did a lot of research before I decided to go with this 4700kv HW motor/esc combo over a few other popular brands for my SCTE 2.0, and I am pretty happy with it after three weeks of running it almost daily.
The included LCD programmer is a really nice touch as well and is very simple to use. No need to bring a laptop!
The power and grunt is near ballistic, but the smoothness is really good and can be tamed down considerably in a matter of two minutes with the programmer.
The motor and ESC seems to stay pretty cool throughout a typical track run, but will get a bit more warm with the included mod1 15T pinion when constantly ripping around/bashing for the heck of it off track. I have only thermaled the ESC once, due to forgetting to reconnect the fan plug after programming.
All and all, if your looking for something that can easily hang with the tekin guys at half the price while staying cooler, this is your combo.
As a personal recommendation, I would consider immediately updating the firmware for both the programmer and the ESC. It seems to have a more precise voltage cut off/BEC limiter after I did this.
Keep in mind that the SCT Pro ESC has a permanently preset BEC voltage of 6v @ 3amps. If you run a high current draw digital servo like the Futaba 9352HV like I use, you will want to bypass the onboard BEC power output with an external BEC such as the castle 10amp adjustable BEC. The CC BEC has to be programmed with the castle link to output a constant 7.4v @ 6 amps.
If you don't you will likely be sorry when your SCT turns like a mack truck half way through a pack and cost you a few races like it did me.
As for the powerhouse 4700kv motor, it can draw heavy loads with moderate timing and punch settings, so do yourself a favor and buy a decent quality pack with a high C rating to prevent puffing typical low C packs. Also consider you should at least run 5600mah+ for an 8-10 minute main expectancy. I ran a protek 100c 5300mah for my first few races and finished out with only 12% left in the gas tank a few times on small technical tracks. I would not have finished had it been a larger one with longer straits and large jumps.
As a final suggestion, go ahead a buy a taller pinion set with 16-17t mod-1 if your running a lighter short course truck like the SCTE 2.0... I know it sounds counter intuitive, but you will actually reduce some of that front wheel ballooning and gain efficiency in the long run on the 17t since you wont red lining the RPMs as often creating unnecessary resistance.
All in all... This is truly a hard hitting combination! It can hold its own anywhere any time and will do what others do at half the price in the power department outside the BEC issue.
If you already have a Tekin RX8 ESC, this is the motor to have hanging off it's cords regardless!)
