Default do these electronics match?

hey, i have a XXX Graphite buggy, and I'm trying to convert it to an on-road car. I bought it used with a JR Radio system and servo so I need a motor and esc.

i was thinking of getting this, http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXW906&P=0, as a motor, and this, http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...=LXJM28&P=7,as the esc.

do u think the motor would fit in my buggy and would you have to replace the brushes and trim the commutator on the kyosho motor??? i mean, it says it is ROAR stock legal so I think it would fit in my buggy but i want to be sure.

also, do u think all my electronics would match up cause that was a huge problem with my previous car.

I'm on a very tight $70 bugdet so i want a motor that i won't have to trim the comm on or replace the brushes. I already tried the traxxas stinger motor from a guy at my LHS and it doesn't fit, as i tried for almost 2 hours!

oh, almost forgot! the esc doesn't have to have reverse and i don't really care what brand it is as long as it matches.

That motor should fit fine on your car, but then again the Trazzas one should have as well, unless i am missing something. I am not sure what you mean by buying a motor that you can't cut the comm on or change the brushes. Thats actually a good thing. Brushes are going to wear out no matter what motor you end up with. With the motor you have picked out, when the brushes do wear out, well that all she wrote since you can't replace them. You want a motor that allows you to replace the brushes rather than just toss the motor.

As far as electronics go you just need to make sure that the speed controls connectors will work on the reciever you are using and that you are not running a motor with lower windings than your ESC can handle, in this case your fine.

Hope that helps a bit

Oh, ok, thanks with the esc.

my last car was a traxxas bandit and with its stinger motor i never needed to do anything to it. It ran fine for 6 months which is when i sold it and upgraded to a faster motor.

how long do u think the kyosho motor would last if i drove it once everyday and used motor spray on it? 6 maybe 8 months?
