Scorpion Motor Ques
I was thinking of upgrading my 450 to a scorpion motor. Will an Align 35A esc work with this motor?

It sounds like Eagle2Bravo has experience with that setup so I'm not disputing him. I just know my -8 Recommends a 45 amp esc. When my 45 amp esc died a couple of months ago I emailed Innov8tion and asked this same exact question since I have a couple of the Align 35 amp ESC's. Their reply was not to do it. They repaired my Scorpion ESC for free so I never tried it.

The -8 will be absolutely fine on the 35A esc, and I have even run the -6 on the same esc without issue.

Yes, although the -8 is really not ideal for 4S, -10 is better.

The -6 has a lot more power, but also pulls a lot more amps and makes 3S packs very warm.

Fender,

What pinion do you plan to use with the 4S and -8? The 11 should give you right at 3K HS and should work fine with the stock 35A ESC. A 12 may cook the ESC, 13 will fry it.
