I bought the turnigy desert racing buggy. I changed the original esc for the X-Car 45A Brushless Car ESC (sensored/sensorless). And now I want to make it faster, so should I put this motor? By the way, is this motor waterproof?
You will experience major cogging using this esc with a sensored motor. Altough the guy shows you on the video that it works, it just does not. Get the right pair right away. I just got it today installed it and it is just terrible. Keep sensored with sensored and vice versa
A am also looking at the "EZ-RUN Brushless Motor 9T 4300Kv" or "EZ-RUN Brushless Motor 10T 3900Kv" or "EZ-RUN Brushless Motor 12T 3300Kv" They all seem like good motors and the turns are all about the same range (lower turns higher torque faster off the start???) I don't want to strip my gears with too much torque.
Looking to get this motor for my 1/10 Short-course truck. The Gear Ratio on my truck is 8.038:1 (I am into planes so this is all new). I am also looking to get the HK 60A ESC and I plan to run this on 3s 2200, I also have 2s 1300 is this a good choice? Also my current Brushed 540 motor has a heat sink can I use that heat sink on this motor or do I need to get a fan one with a fan? I am looking for higher speed from this setup. Thanks for your help.
Hi and thanks for your suggestions. The sensor wires are not connected as this esc has nowhere to connect them! I am using a 5A 3S Lipo which is new and no matter what setting I change...timinig etc...there is no change......it still cogs badly unless you roll start it!
If you have checked every electrical connection, and everything is fine, try to use a smaller pinion to increase the ratio - this usually helps when the car is heavy or the surface is rough, as a lot of power is needed to start rotation of the motor.
And i have a kyosho ep fazer kobra with stock gearing which is 28teeth to 75teeth, will it be good or i will need to look at another motor? If so... What KV rating would i need? (will credit for advice!)
From the goggle pics, your RC looks like a buggy. For such I would recommend a motor between 3500 to 4800kV. Go towards higher kV for top speed gain and lower kV for more torque/acceleration gain. It's always best to optimize your preferences and go accordingly. Always use 2S Lipo first before jumping to 3S, make sure the car can handle that RPM.
Motor will never be burned because of too beefy ESC.
The question should be the other way around "What ESC can handle this motor", not "Can motor handle this ESC". 80A ESC is more than enough for this motor. You'll do just fine with 40A esc also, it's only 220W motor.
I have a 35A ESC for my hobbyking 1/10 short course truck. but my motor has broken, so now i've to buy a new motor.
I doubt between this motor, the 13.5t and the same motor as this one, but than 11.5t. I want sometimes some good speed, but also drive very. very slowly, so with one click of throttle. So i think want to sensor it..
Which motor is the best for my car? (it's the same as the slash 4x4)
- The 11.5t ( i thought 3300KV) or - The 13.5t (3150 KV)
I'll run it on 3S.
I hope someone will awnser fast, so, which motor gives the best results and will accept my prefers.
I think you will be happy with the choice of the 11.5 3300 kv. I ran this motor in 4 cars over the course of 2 years. Onroad and Off road.
I have been more than pleased. This is a great zero maintenance motor.
Just watch your temps to find the correct gearing.
My son drive a stock Tamiya Gravel Hound 1/10 (DF02 chassis)
I want to upgrade it with a brushless motor, 35-40A controller and 2s lipo (and actual 7.2V nimh).
Is this motor a good choice for the upgrade of the Tamiya buggy or is it too much power for this chassis?
Better motor is the ezrun 10T with the 60A quik esc and the 4amp turnigy 2s lipo. It's a tight fit, but you must center the esc on the top deck. I'm running what I've just mentioned in my df02 with upgrades:
You need to purchase "bullet connectors" and some Silicone Wire of around 14awg to 16awg to solder it on the brushless motor. As for the HobbyKing 30A esc, it does arrived with soldered silicone wire but it does not have any "bullet connect" to connect with the motor. You got to buy "male" & "female" bullet connectors. Size should be around 3mm to 4mm type. Hope it helps!
F... you HK! I made an order on 21 January at office and couldn't pay in time because of the security protection of the PayPal. Your representative sent my PayPal a payment request for a solution, it didn't work either. Then I paid your payment request through PayPal after I return home. And I'm still waiting for your approvement. It still shows "Awaiting Payment" and half of my order became out of stock because of your slowness. Now you left no choice but wait until they are restocked again in unknown time. Maybe months!
I've been running this with a 3s lipo and ez35a esc in a 4wd buggy on rubber slicks, on carpet idoors. I seems to have a lower torque than ez-run kv3000 and nomatter what timing i use it makes funnys sound when, i hit the throttle hard. It seems like the magnet is to weak. If i go easy on the throttle it works ok, but i need more power. The price is unbelivable. I'm running this motor with a gear ratio 8,6 to 1

16 thumbs up!
Super moteur ! Va trs bien avec un variateur 35A. Par contre, avec un accu 1300mAh 2S, la LiPo gonfle un peu...
