    Cool Which brushless system for me!!??

    OK, I am having the HARDEST time trying to pick the perfect brushless system for me. The options are the Sct combo with the 3800kv-1410 4-pole castle system. Next is the Sv2 ( same esc as the sct ) 4600kv-1406 4-pole castle system. And last but not least is the Sv2 ( same esc as the sct ) 5700kv-1406 4-pole castle system. There are claimed to be 4 pole. Its just which kv rating im asking.
    3800kv- 1410
    4600kv- 1406
    5700kv- 1406
    I want to keep the temps under about 140-150"F, but i would want to hit at least 45 mph with mutliple wheelies at the throttle. Im running stock gearing 18/88 and im running a Gens Ace 5000mah 40c 2s lipo. What kv rating can give me speed of 45+ but can still give me unstoppable wheelies, while keeping temps under 140-150 degrees.

    Yes the Castle Creations 1410 Combo is Perfect. I was also looking at the sv2 but my local hobby shop told me that for my track at least when are you going to need that much power for a truck in a race. So i got the 3800kv and its perfect. One of my races i was in 8th and off the starting line i was right into 3rd place. I kept that position until i flipped my truck. I was running spektrum dx3c and at 80 percent power and it can go up to 150% power. Plenty of torque, power, acceleration, speed, plus a bonus with castle link. My temps dont get above 115. Especially with the fan shroud on the esc. Running Gens Ace 5000mah, 50c 7.4. Temps=perfect. Wheelies are hard for me but idk depends on your gearing.
