Thanks for the replies. I guess I'll just see how it goes with this motor. It might be just to darn big. I'm just getting into RC'ing. I didn't know this motor was a 12 turn! I thought at the most it was a 19. At the hobby store I just asked for a bigger motor and that's what they gave me.
I've read to break in a motor is to run it for 5 mins on 1/4 throttle. Of course take it easy on a few runs before you let loose.
I'll have it running tonight with the new esc. I'll see how it goes.
