my 2 cents

I ran the 4600 at sid's last year, mainly on the low settings (running lipo's aswell). I was able to use the full range of the motor, not too much power. I think the 4600 is equivilant to a 13-15 t brushed motor. These motors can also be geared very high!!

Afterall the only time you can use the power is on the straight anyway!!!

4600 in a 4wd
5700 in a 2wd

I went with the 5700 :bigthumb:, wouldnt you want a more powerful motor in a 4wd car though? I;m not sure if my next buggy will be another 2wd or a 4wd, I guess it will depend on the size of the classes at sids?

now all I have to do is get a radio.. looking at the FAAST 3PM. One thing that confuses me is with the FAAST system there are 'modules'.. what exactly are the modules for??
