Default Brushless motor help Dromida MT

I'm looking for a brushless motor for my Domida MT4.18, preferrably something that will just drop into the stock mount and use the stock bolts. I have a Neewer 25A ESC ready to go for it. I bought a motor from them but it seems to only fit my Losi Mini-T. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Any 2030 or 2040 motor around 5000kv. I would look at the mamba micro motor. After that any hobbywing, turnigy, tacon etc. Should perform well.

Thanks, I'll look into it!

From the looks of it I bought a 2030 motor and the screws didnt fit so i'm guessing that what I need is a 2040 motor, correct?

20=width of motor. 30 and 40=length of motor.

They usually have a couple different spacing on the motor. Find the one that's closest and you might still have to shave some material off the motor mount hole.

What do you mean the screws didn't fit? As in the threads are different or the spacing of the screw holes in the motor don't match the hole spacing in the mount?

Sorry about that I should have been less vague, the diameter of the screw hole on the brushless motor (thread?) and the diameter of the original motor mounting screw are different sizes (the motor's hole is smaller than the screw so the screw never screws in.)

I just figured that when I bought a brushless motor for my bandit that all the screws were an industry standard or something. Maybe I need to start buying screws now that i'm actually upgrading rather than replacing.

Oh ya the brushless motors use different sized screws. I think they're m2.5 but I could be wrong. Best thing is to take it upto ace hardware or a hobby shop and match the screws to the motor.

Yup, just about any hardware store should have what you need for it. Just make very sure that you buy screws the correct length. Too long and the screw could get into the stator windings and make a mess of the motor.
