Turnigy TrackStar 4168 2650KV 1/8th Brushless Motor (AUS Warehouse)
Forget those messy nitro engines and upgrade your 1/8th truck or buggy with the Turnigy TrackStar 2650kv Brushless motor. Combine this motor with the Turnigy TrackStar 150A ESC for the ultimate 1/8th EP experience.
update on motor and trackstar 150amp speedy, in hyper 7, 16 tooth pinion, have run it on 4cell battery about 30 times, excellent, just run it on 6cell, now the problem im having is to try keep the front end down and to stop shredding tyres, extreme power, i tested and check doing roughly 135 kph, will try and get a video uploaded asap.
at 60kph, just under half throttle, give it a squeeze, up comes the front wheels like a motorbike. crazy.
Way to big! You need something with a 3.17mm shaft, most of the 3650 motors will do the job, try and keep around 3200-4000kv, that's a good speed for a beginner. It doesn't really matter if the motor is sensored or not if you are just bashing. Make sure you keep an eye on the motor temp if you go for a faster motor as you may need to change your pinion down a few teeth.
I want to upgrade my 1/10th scale summit to one of these along with the 150amp Turnigy ESC....Can anyone recommend what gearing i should run in the summit to get some good speed out of it without cooking the motor or ESC?
im using a 21 to 60 on my HSP and it runs fine with 3s getting tops of 100km (same sett up). no matter what gearing you use you wont fry the speed controller as it can take up to 150 and almost double in burst where as the engine only draws 129 amps at burst.
I bought one of these in combination with the trackstar 150amp esc. I gave it a test run yesterday and it has plenty of punch but it seems to break up at full throttle and when turning. Dunno if its my soldering or the esc? Not sure. I'll see how it goes after a few more packs. If it pops I will be letting you all know.
I have put countless packs through it now and it is soooo fast! It's running like a clock. Perfect combination. I run it on a 4s 4500 mah pack and get half an hour out of it easy. It must've been a dodgy solder that was making it break up. Buy one now!
yeh it will though the motor can't reach its full potential, and it can heat up pretty fast, i would probably recomend the 150 amp turnigy trackstar ESC though if you are not looking for speed but just endurance the 120 amp ESC will do you just fine.
Well, I'm not posing a question as such, more demonstraight the low end torque this motor has...
This is my full alloy/steeled, (including steel roll cage) out Emaxx, now this doesn't really show the full "top end" potential this set up has, I'm running this exact motor, a hobby wing WP SC8 ESC 120A, on 4s lipo 2x 4s 40C 5,000mah in parallel, ESC is programmed LVL1 punch, timing 15* drag brake 20%
no heat issues, i get solid hour runs from pair batteries, so enjoy
yeah. L&R and joker rc i run it on my nitro sport 1/10 on 5s and that thing screams like a beat. the shaft hold up awesome for the power this motor and my MM ESC gives.. and the end point power is amazing. pops wheelies.. just love this motor for the price
mine has the gas version teeth.. they are big. not small like the BL (like e maxx gear) i think they are 32P.. i got the 44T from nitrorcx**** from a hyper speed buggy 1 gear tranny gear. and i got a 20T from my LHS.. ( I am also waiting for my 150A ESC)
its a Tenshock motor which are well made 6 pole
internal its only 40mm x 50mm .it could be used in a boat but a true 6 pole or 4 pole boat motor has the winding's the hole length of the can with the wires entering the rear end bell,.i sold mine and now run a tenshock sc401 4600kv 4 pole on 2s and 3s
The ESC is rated for up to 3s LiPo only, so not suitable for 1/8th. Motors can draw immense spike currents which will overload a tiny ESC. If it was wise, then why don't manufacturers sell combo's like that?
Bought 1 of these motors for my traxxas revo as I wanted to convert to Brushless, what can I say, the torque on this motor is out of this world, I'd even say that it's better than a castle motor, highly recommend to anyone who's even considering it, don't consider, just do it, money well spent, thanks hobby king.
I've recently pulled the motor, speedy and battery out of the traxxas revo platinum, fitted it to a hyper 7 with a 12 tooth pinion and it went very well, I replaced the pinion with a 15 tooth, Jesus, have you ever seen a hyper 7 doing wheelies and using the tail as a wheelie bar, I dare say I'm doing at least 120 kph now. I lost control and don't some damage to the hyper, it is getting repaired, and looking at fitting a 19 tooth pinion, will let you know how it goes once its up and running again
ok ill start from scratch, this motor and trackstar 150amp speedy in a hyper 7 now, gone from 12 tooth to 16 tooth pinion, standard spur gear, will be doing roughly 120kph, i have badlander tyres and they have unstuck from the rims. i ran a 6 cell 40c 5000mha batttery yesterday, cant tell you haw fat it goes, but i can tell you its out of control, you can see the whole buggy torque twisting, ran for about 10 minutes, engine and speedy just began to warmup, radical combo, if i had to take a gues on speed, without over exadurating, i think just ovr 150kph if you can keep the front end down. i'll try to take a video and post it next week, will put on standard hyper 7 tyres on so they dont bite the ashfalt as much, id rather it slide around alittle. with half throttle just touching the throttle alittle more, lifts front end to the sky's, heaps of fun, very hard to control, lots of fun.
vedran, to answer your question, trackstar 150amp speedy with turnigy 35c 4cell 5000mha battery and this motor combo, the only thing i will tell you, buy a metal spur gear, will strip them very easily, and will damage the gearbox, thats half the reason i pulled it all out and put it in a hyper 7, cheaper on parts and more reliable.
I had this motor and a HK 120 esc in my hyper 7 brushless conversion with 13/46 gearing...
Really great setup for buggy.
But in my revo conversion i have a little heat issue with this motor...thats why i asked for timing... ok so you used 15/38 gearing, but now i have 12/38 gearing and heat issue (even with castle heatsink form mamba).
i didnt really touch any settings on the speedy, the only thing i did play with was the brake setting. no need to touch anything if its working fine i say. try the trackstar 150amp speedy, i had a 120 amp speedy and 2 minute run and stoped working. BIGGER is better.
I got one of these to try in my e-revo after it's original castle motor had a magnet come unstuck. I used the stock 18/68 gearing and 2x 2450mah 30c 4s batteries in parallel. it was considerably less punchy than the 2200kv castle motor was on 4s and i say WAS cause after 2 minutes of driving in my front yard it went up in a cloud of smoke and is now dead. not a very good motor at all.

This motor sucks when i got it the motor was working, then after 3 weeks of storage in non-direct sunlight it stopped working.

motor has extreme torque, used motor in car for about 15 minutes and the screws came out of the rear casing, not too much of a big deal, but good value for money, it destroyed my metal gears pretty quick tho, now just have to find a set of decent hardened steel gears

I brought a couple of these ant thought for the money lets see how far we can go before it cooks. im running the 150 amp track star speedy on 6s in a hyper7 16 pinion and 46 spur. this gets loose az and loves throttle being pumped up its a-hole and it gets hot but loves it..... however i steeped up to a 20 pinion and it finally after 2 battery's threw a magnet off the shaft. the tires flying off the rims on every run probably didn't help. even pro line badlands exploded. but i must say the heat that these motors can cope with is unbelievable. even the ten shock and the tekin cooked before this, and for those people that bag the 150a speedy from track star, i wish i knew what you were doing wrong because i im still trying to break it. no luck yet.

I bought two of these motors. I am using one in a 1/10 onroad car used for drag racing. final gear ratio is about 3.2 on a 6s battery pack. Man this car is a beast. I have to constantly rebuild the rear diff but its worth it. The other motor is used in an1/8 Ofna GTP2. Its fast also but I am not finished tuning it. You can't beat the price. Because the motor has so much torque you can gearhow ever you want. I am quite satisfied.
