Hey guys...I was just wondering...I have a brand new castle sidewinder 8th system just sitting here collecting dust....do you think if I put it in the senton it would be worth it performance wise? would it make the truck even faster?

If you have the V2 electronics, I can't see it being any better. If you have V1 electronics, it would definitely be worthwhile.

This is the 2200kv with 90amp rated ESC? I have the same system in my modded Backslash. Think the ESC may be the limiting factor as this combo tends to heat quickly at higher RPMs. Maybe the motor with stock 150 amp ESC. You could expect speed gains I'd think, but haven't tried putting it in my Typhon yet to give truly informed feedback.

Yeah it's ridiculous in the Slash. Need to run Revo mod 1 spur/slipper modification or find 32 pitch 5mm shaft pinion. I switched to 40 tooth mod 1 Revo spur for convenience so I could swap pinions between 1/8 scale rigs. Steel driveshafts like MIP x-duty's are a must or the entertainment won't last long....Lol.
