I think that you can put that motor in Leoprad 60A esc (limit <4500kv), this motor says 5300kv but I think is incorrect, much but better go with a Hobbyking x-car 120A or hk 60A that suports up to 8.5t motor.
Ok so i brought this motor and I have also brought the hobbyking x-car 45a sensored esc and I can't seem to get them to work. I have soldered the leads to the three tabs on the motor, matching abc leads on the esc with abc on the motor. pluged the sensor lead in and hooked up the battery and receiver. when I turn on the esc it lights up solid orange and red and I can turn the front wheels but thats it. the fan works on the esc but I have no throttle. If anyone can help me I would be much appreciated as this is doing my head in. thanks in advance
just wondering this says its a 5300kv but on the motor it says 4000kv. whats the go with that. plus i looking to get a new esc for this motor. which one is the best as i have a 1/10 short course truck hsp. Any help will be much appreciated.
I bought 2 of these, to test on a touring 1:10 car, i just can say...wooo****..with 45a sensored esc, really powerfull brushless motor, never heated even after 30minutes race under 5000mah 40C 2s lipo. Excellent linear accelleration and 6pin sensor make its work perfectly. Between ESC and motor i put a multifunction RC car speed meter and i obtained 4.9G accelleration and 4.67G brake decelleration.
I repeat, i just can say wooow****..
Excellent product, excellent prize...
Hi, just got this motor & have hook up with HK X car 60A ESC. i am wondering how to adjust the timing whether or -? And why do we need to adjust the timing? Many thanks in advance.....http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store /images/em_nerd.gif
Adjusting the timing on the back of the motor is quicker than adjusting the esc. Why one would adjust the timing is basically to further fine tune your vehicles performance. Advancing will boost power but will drain the battery faster may heat the motor quicker.retarding the timing will make the car less powerfull and will extend battery run time. Hope that helps.
I don't think I've seen a single motor from HobbyKing with an available rebuild kit. You can buy bearings elsewhere but as far as rotor goes, if it needs a new one you just have to buy a whole new motor.
I have mine connected to Traxxas VXL esc with a sensor and it runs just fine. Plenty of torque and good speed. I only ran it on 2S in my TA B10 though but it never got warm, I think I need to gear up:-)
So I got this motor and connected it to my Traxxas 3vxl esc. When just using the 3 wires, it works just fine but as soon as I connect the sensor cable I get nothing from the motor, it just make a small initial noise and nothing after.
Any idea? I though the sensor was universal?
This is a 540 sized motor. It will power a 1/8 scale car, but it will probably burn up quickly. I would recommend finding a larger lower kv motor. This motor is really designed for 1/10 scale vehicles.
To get the best results from a sensored motor, you also need a good tx/rx system. for the cases you need a sensitive throttle (like drift ,crawler etc ) ,yes the senserod system ( motor esc ) will be cool , but for the rest ( not profesional , just for fun cases ) , you need to analyze the sensored and sensorless systems' price/performance criteria :) have fun
Hobby king says that are not scheduled to be available for 3 months from June '11.
Probably as you said not being restocked at all.
Of 30 items in their car motor section they only have 3 items available, 1 is a system, 1 is a 1/8 motor and the other is a hi Torque sensorless.
The only other car motors are in the large inrunner section and they are the sensorless EZ-run motors.
When are you guys going start stocking some decent car motors?
Lot's of ESC's but nothing to plug in to them !
ufff,es un gran motor,muy suave,y buena aceleracion,solo que en todo terreno,despues de la carrera hay que desmontarlo y limpiarlo por su excesivos agujeros de refrigeracion,buen precio para un gran motor.
this item is out of stock bc its awesome and a great price i use everything hobbyking and never have had a problem
I bought this motor right away. Tested it quickly today. Seems to be good product. Tested it in X-fatory X6 sq 2wd buggy with Speed Passion Cirtix short course master -sensored esc with 2s Lipo. In cold weather it didn't even got warm. It came with a good quality sensor cable!
Will be testing more this weekend indoor racing... back for results.
Waiting for this beauty, because on the photo it seems so, well buit and with good space for soldering wires. Hope it works as it seems

Love it! Put mine in my T4 truck and it has plenty of grunt low down and winds out really well. I'm not expecting this motor to last more than a season, but then none of my $100 motors seem to get that far either. I just hope these come back into stock, when they do I'll be ordering at least another 8.5 and a 10.5 and what the heck a 5.5 for fun!
