Thread: Best motor/esc for my scx10

  1. #1

    Default Best motor/esc for my scx10

    Hi, I've been into rc for awhile now. This is my first crawler. I will be crawling and would also like some speed.i.have a large open back yard so I'm setting up crawling spots and some speed runs. Nothing crazy maybe 20 to 30mph tops. But also what low end response. I have the scx10 raw kit. I am on a budget so no super high stuff. Should I go with a mild brushless sensored set up? Or a brushed set up? Thanks

    I had to spend a lot of money and swap out nearly everything on an SCX10II to hit 50+ Mph. A stock unit would be hard-pressed to hit 30.

    To be fair, if you want to go that fast, you might want to consider not buying a trail/scale truck.

    You’d be better off with an Axial Bomber. It would at least be more stable at speed. A nice sensored brushless motor would be required for crawling and speed.

    I don't need 50mph. Don't even care about 30, 20 is fine. Whould a censored 3100kv with a 2c lipo be a good choice?

    Even 20 would be challenging. The SCX10II isn't geared for speed. A Bomber would be a much better choice, and 3S, no less.

    Maybe try driving it first though? My stock axial motor honcho feels quick to drive on 3s- because it's solid axle and I drive it on pretty rough terrain. Top speed must be about the 6mph I'mthatguy found with the deadbolt. I think the feel of speed is all relative, in contrast my club racer probably does more like the speed you're talking about but doesn't feel particularly fast on a wide flat track.

    Ok well I already like my scx10 better then my short course truck just bc of the scale aspect, I made that too fast to drive almost anywhere. I'm mainly going to be using this in my back yard. I guess a better question would be what would a good setup be for a mix of "speed" and still have low end torque? Like a sensored 3100kv?
