"I replaced my stock Reedy brushed motor in my SC10 with this one, and my truck is really fast, and has a lot of power, great upgrade from brushed to brushless. "
Recommended to buy: Yes
Whats the rated speeds this motor has run?
This depends on the RC you put it in along with what battery and gear ratio is used. With a 3S in a 2WD RC with it geared tall you could see speeds of around 50 to 60mph. I have ran their 5700kv in a 4WD on road car with it over geared along with a 3S pack and have had it clocked at 91mph, it gets extremely hot and I can only do 4 passes but its fast. I run this same set up in my 1/16th Summit and it does 45mph all day long on a 2S pack. Its a great combo and we would highly recommend it for many applications.
Can I add a fan to this ESC and what would you recommend? Also for motor?
Yes you can use the Castle Creations CC Blower SCT SV3 Fan part number CSE011-0085-00 and CSE011-0014-00.
Will this run with an 8 cell 5000mah 9.6v NiMH? Also would this be a good replacement motor/esc for a Traxxas Stampede weighing about 4.1 lbs?
The input voltage is: 2S LiPo minimum, 3S LiPo maximum, 9 cell max on NiCd/NiMH. Yes this system would be great for the Stampede 2wd.
I have a Stampede that I converted to a Slash, but with the 2.8 PL Badlands would this combo work with this setup?
If your truck is a 2WD then yes this 4600 SV3 will work great in it for you.
Would this work on a Team Associated Pro SC 4x4?
This set up would fit but you could only run a 7.4 volt pack and there would not be much torque. We would strongly recommend the Castle Creations 1/10 Mamba Max Pro SC System 2400 kV part # CSE010-0091-00
