    Slash 4x4 and HW SCT combo install question

    My HW SCT combo for my Slash 4x4 build came with motor leads soldered to the motor at one end and 4mm male banana plugs at the other end. OK so far.

    Instead of soldering posts, the ESC has what appear to be 4mm female banana plugs. Do those of you who have this ESC just plug the motor in at the ESC?

    Plugging in the motor this way seems like an easy way to flex the board inside the ESC, causing problems.

    Yes, just plug the motor bullets straight into the ESC. After two years use I've not had a single issue with it. The board is epoxied in there and can't be "flexed". (Btw. I guess you are asking about the Ezrun Max10 SCT combo.)

    I was thinking about max 10 sct, does it have plenty of power? Runs good on 3s? You still like your max 10?

    Yep, the Max 10 120A ESC is still going strong with no heat issues. For a sensorless system it's very smooth, but the HW 3200kV motor tends to run a little hot on 3S so I mainly use 2S geared 14/52 (I'm not a speed guy...). For 3S use I would go for a 2400-2600kV motor.
    However, I have to mention that where I live it rarely gets above 20C (68F), even during summer. But I guess you are familiar with cold winters, aswell...

    I use the same combo, geared 17/54 and on mostly driven on 2S.
    It can be geared higher for 2S, but I like the speed as it is (fast enough not stupid fast).
    The few times I used 3S, I ended up breaking one of the driveshafts. Maybe in time I'll install Tekno-driveshafts.

    I'm running this (although, with the 4300kV), on 2S, w/ 14T/56T, and it's fantastic. Haven't had any overheating problems (heck, I haven't even gotten close...highest temp I've hit (so far) was approx 140). I recently picked up a 16T I'm going to try, and, as for the 54T, I'm still considering it.
