    Motor upgrade, opinion please

    I have purchased the Novak Havoc Pro Ballistic 550 SSO 4.5T motor & ESC combo. Pretty excited but want to do this right. I have not installed it yet because I am thinking or upgrading the motor mount to alluminum with the big bearing & replacing the slipper clutch to center diff. Question is, "Is this necessary & is the center diff a good choise for off-road racing (that is my whole purpose for my upgrades).

    I can't say anything about the motor, but I would suggest not adding the center differential for off-road racing.

    I have the c diff. and find the slipper much better for bashing off road, there is much less to go wrong with the slipper. The c diff is made for medium to stock power. I think your new system may be a bit much for the c. diff. Just my thoughts..

    I would definitely get the motor mount and CD, especially for off-road racing.
    The CD is one of those things that are a must for racing and someone who doesn't recommend one is showing how much they don't know about racing.
