Hey, i am thinking of getting a Team Associated T4 Stadium Truck, and along with that a nice new Brushless Motor and ESC.


Now first of all, the truck.

Followed By 2 Possible Brushless Motors/ESC's

First off, im not sure on the differences between these 2 motors and ESCS.





Secondly, Can a T4 Truck handle a brushless without any modifications? Afterall, it IS Associated.

actually ive decided on the factory team T4, which mip cvds


also, it has the same diffs as a rc10gt so if an rc10gt can withstand a picco .26, im sure it can handle a brushless

out of the 2 brushless motors you have linked, the first one is more powerful. In sportsman mode (limited revs) its on par with a 19t spec motor.

a mate of mine has the super sport brushless system in his TA04 TRF and it flies. It has a sh*tload of torque down low in the revs which will mean wheelspin city unless you are carefull on the throttle

bzzzt! wrongo.


"T4" being the truck makes'T4' a 'noun'.


"It" is a pronoun.

----------------------------------


Brushless motors sound good in concept but aren't as fancy as you'd think, they are still pretty immature technology for RC cars.


The Hackers and other brand sensorless BLs still "cog" and some of them do overheat & blow their ESCs with disappointing frequency. The ESC is the most expensive part of the whole system, costs much more than a normal RC car ESC.





Novak's SS5800 @ 196W is not even as powerful as the most crazy brushed motor (7/8/9t which could pump out 220-240W) so there's little chance of any good RC car not handling the 'power'.


SS4300 is a "stock"-equivalent motor, so its only got 175W.


Upcoming (announced, but coming who-knows-when) "HV-Maxx" will be much more powerful, designed for running on 10-14 cells. But as its a 550-size unit made for Maxx, it won't fit into most usual 540-powered cars.
