2 questions.

Do 540 type motors (typically used in gliders, and apparently really cheap Tamiya cars) have the same hole pattern as 05 motors (standard motors like Associated and Trinity)?

For bashing offroad, is it better to have a motor with bushings or bearings? I worry that the dirt will ruin the bearings right away, while a bushing motor, being simpler, will run much longer.

Im not sure on the 05 glider motors but if they fit in the Tamiya
cars they will most likely fit most other cars as well.

Bushings or Bearings? that depends on how well your going to take care of the motor. If your not going to clean the motor or take care of it, bearings will usually fail before bushings. On the other hand if plan to take care and clean the motor (spray out the motor with motor spray and keep the bearings lubed with good bearing oil) you will get more performance and life from a motor with bearings.

Hope this helps
