Default Twin Hammers Electronics Recommendations?

So I have a couple of options to go with as I am seriously thinking of picking one of these bad boys up for high speed bashing purposes only. Mostly 3s running since that little stock battery tray on it probably will hold my crawler packs nicely.

1). MMP + Tekin Pro4 4600kv Sensored (probably overkill)
2). MMP + Castle 1410 3800kv (Generally what I use on most 1/10 off roads)
3). MMP + Tekin ROC412 (Considering purchasing)
4). Old Traxxas VXL Velineon off my Slash 4x4

Steering Servo will probably be a Savox SC-1232SG
Shifting Servo undecided but I do have an older 645MG or 5645MG I could use

I am leaning on option 2. as the MMP and the 1410 has never given me any problems and it has ample torque. Any suggestions will be much appreciated!!

I have a MMP-SCT 1415-2400 with a CC BEC and it kicks a$$!

I've heard the Tekin ROC412 is killer too.

Just wish I had more time to play with my toys.

Sounds like you have #4 just laying around. That's a good place to start since you won't have to fork over any cash. You'll probably start breaking stuff with all that power anyways. You might just like it, though. I like your #2 option too.

The Castle Creations 3800kv has good top end, but cogs like crazy no matter what gearing you are using. Basically it sucks and don't use it!

I love the Mamba Max Pro though.

Well a buddy of mine convinced me to hold off on the Twin Hammers saying he's driven one and wasn't at all impressed by it. I'm not the one to just listen to one person's opinion and take it to heart. But I did just recently purchase an SC8.2e.....so along with a bunch of rigs I need to seriously finish up or repairing I really don't need another toy lol!

I have a Tekin RS and Pro4 3300 on the way. Is the RS going to be able to handle the Pro4 or is this too much motor for this esc?
