This motor is very decent! I have it in my Kyosho MP7.5 buggy converted to electric with a hobbywing 120wp on 3s "B" grade hobbyking 3600mah and it obtains 65kms easily without blowing out my wheels. I would recommend this motor for the average basher such as myself. 2 thumbs up Hobbyking..thanks :-).
I will say it is more like 1400 to 1500 watts.I have 6 of these black beasts.I have them in boats and trucks.Boats take the most amps and watts and this one will hang with $150 ones for a fraction of the price.I will say that it needs proper cooling because it does get hot if you push it,gearing or prop size.Prop size on 4s no bigger than 45mm 2 blade.Hope this helps.
It will work in your E Revo but it is a 2 pole motor.Even though it is a 2 pole it does have massive power,over 2 horse power.You can't beat the price.Gets warm on 4s so if you run this motor ,get a fan for it.Hope this helps.JK.
Yes it is a very powerful motor (1600watts)It will work in your truggy.Use a fan and don't go over 4s and you will be fine.Temps should be checked depending on your gearing.Great motor ,have run them in my trucks and boats.Does get hot if you push it.Hope this helps.
I plan to use this motor for a brushless conversion on my Revo 2.5r.
Is it up for the job?
I want to use 4s with the controller listed below.
I currently running an OS .18tm so this power should be more. My gearing at the moment: 17T pinion and 38T spur. I would like to try a similar gearing to that.
I'm mainly converting due to noise and mess.

Yes it will do the job,massive power.Make sure you put a fan on it because it does get hot on 4s.You mwill be pleased with the power.Your Revo will fly on 4s.As for the esc it will work but the Turnigy car esc's tend to be better quality.And converting to brushless is great,I have been running nitro for over 20 years,cars,trucks,boats,and planes and I now only electric,you can't beat the power and NO mess.Hope this helps.JK.
Hi,The turnigy Trackstar 120 amp Short course Truck,Product number 9052000011 is a great choice.I know it says short course truck but is plenty powerful enough for the revo.Check out the reveiws on it ,it also has a 720amp burst.Also in the reveiws they talk about how much better it is than the HK version.Hope this helps.JK.
I have had this motor for about a year now. I've noticed a decrease in power output. Cause when i go full throttle it doesn't spin as fast as it did when it was new. I had 22/66 gearing and was using two 7.2v nimh 5000mah packs. Anyone have the same issue? Or how can i test to make sure it's going bad and replace it?
They usually just go,you have probably got it hot and the magnets are fried.HK has a brushless motor checker that you can order.Check your solder connections, your ESC to motor connectors,if they are a year old they need replacing if your running them hot,they will have more resistance and not carry as much voltage.That could be it.
I have two of them,they do make 1600 watts,they also heat up. So I would not run over 4s on them.I have them in boats with water cooling.If you are going to ues them in a truck or car make sure you use a fan.These are nice motors and you can't beat the price.Only have 4mm connectors.I have replaced them with 5.5 bullet connectors.Mine in my boats have been running for over a year with proper cooling.Hope this helps.
I am not familar with the trooper but if it has a 540 size motor it will work.Same mounting holes as 540 size motor.It has alot of power and is good up to 4s lipo.It has a 5mm shaft and not a .125 shaft like 540 size motors,so you will have to get the correct pinion gear for you application.Hope this helps.JK.
This motor is a little big for the slash 2 wheel drive and too low kv for 2s.Im running a 3900Kv with 3s.It would not be much more than stock with that set up and this motor has a 5mm shaft so you can't use your stock pinion gears with 1/8 shaft. However the esc you should get is the Turnigy 60amp esc,its a great esc with many program features and as for the motor I would recommend the ez-run 3900kv,its cheaper and you will not be disapointed and your pinoin gears will fit and it will also work
It looks and feels like a 550 motor, but it's listed as a 540.
I've purchased this motor for a slash 4x4 basher upgrade (saving money instead of Mamba Max) and it needs at least 3s lipo, 4s lipo to run fast. However, it did keep up at the track with my friend's Mamba Max Pro setup, although this motor got hot faster.
I have one of these in my boat and I always used Feagio all XL,s. This motor runs circles around the Feagio. Much more power.I have cooked 4 Feagio,s and this one is still running like a champ.I know its not in a truck but a Boat has a constant drag and is rough on motors.Im running 6s and it does get hot but not too hot(big watercool jacket).I would reccomend a fan,you can get one if you order this motor,HK has got them for about 5 bucks.Hope this helps.
Very easy to find out how many poles. Mark the shaft (not permantly), Rotate through a full 360 degrees counting each detent. It will always be an even number. Once you have that number, divide by 2 and that is your number of poles.
If you look at the Car Power System under the brushless motor selection, you'll see this motor paired with a 150A ESC. This appears to be the same motor only by itself. That system can handle 6s, so I would assume this can handle 6s.
I buy this one..n im use to my pursuit boat from Hobby king..
Esc 180A hobbywing, prop 445 octura, lipo use 4s, lipo 6A
Hit 90-100 km/H
2 thumbs up!
this looks like a strong and quality motor but since there is no voltage specification it makes it hard to purchase.... please update asap!

<B> Using Hoaye 6 Blade Fan </B> <br>
<b>6s - 134 amps - 134 ounces (SETTLED!!!) - 2895 watts!!!!</B>
Tested twice using same ESC (HK 90-100 amp) <p> NO HEAT SOAK in ESC (where heat can begin) or motor (where heat from motor can be transferred to esc)!!!
Temps ended in 130F and did not go up after 20 second WOT run, could hold heat sink in hand, just warm but still would recommend a heat sink and after run cool down of 20 seconds minimum.
I wish I could give this 6 stars for the money, again it's a battery buster come with your good cells in hand but it'll throw out some watts...not as efficient as other motor and slightly heavier but you'll have to pay at least 4 times their other brands no doubt.

Awesome motor, also I use extra handmade heatsink =)
4S 18t pinion on HPI trophy 3.5 conversion - runs great & 50C temp.
5S 12t pinion - makes it fly )
4S 18pinion on mbx6T too hot (70C)

I ride this one in my Hong Nor Ultra LX-1 BL with Trackstar ESC an Turnigy 4s 4500mah Lipopack. I tried 3 different Pinions (15, 14, 13) and its always getting very hot.
On 15 Pinion i had to stop after ~4min, on 14 it got ~68°C after 6min Runtime, on 13 i had ~8min Runtime with ~69°C. Airtemp was about 18°C on the 3 Testruns...no need to say that i got a lot more runtime in that Lipo?! Search for bjRnSter on Youtube for Vids.
Maybe with an 12T Pinion it will stand a complete Run.
Now waiting for my Trackstar Motor to be delivered and hopeing for cooler runs
