Default how many turns for a starter box motor?

I have a mugen pro BII starter box and one motor is dead, i can't buy one since mugen don't sell the motor only. now i will buy 2 new motors,
will 2 titan 12t work well? or 2 standard 27t motor?
Thanks

I would like to know this too. I have 2 co27 27 turn race motors, and various 19 all the way through 9 turn motor that I might be able to use as a single motor. Would any of these work?

Well, strictly speaking about 550 size motors: I used a pair of 55t motors in my losi box and they had good torque, but didn't have the RPM to turn the engine over fast enought to get it to start easily...

So, a pair of 27t's might still have the needed torque and also have the RPM, but I wouldn't try anything less (turns) than that. Not enough torque I would imagine...

A pair or 35t or something along those lines might be the ticket.

I know a couple guys at the track put rock crawler motors in their box but they were a losi & another brand.I would assume rock crawler could mean anything from 35-60 turn but they didnt say & I didnt ask.Have you thought about the motors they use in the ofna truggy box? I know nitro house sells starter box motors.I wouldnt waste my time with 12 turn motors,they'll spin fast as hell but would most probably burn up real quick unless the only thing you start is a worn out nitro.

Common motors are 540. 540s give more power-550s better cooling. Can you change the gearing or do you just put something like a servo horn isnert on the motors?

The same happened to my Mugen box last year and i replaced them with two standard 540 type motors. They get the job done, even with a new GO engine.

finally, this is what i bought http://www.venom-group.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=VEN%2D2010
really cheap!!
but i sent an email to mugen and they sell the motors directly and only via email, they only sell both and for 25$ plus shipping, not bad but since i'm not the only one who is having problem with mugen motors, i prefer to change for another brand

My Mugen boxs is old,I would guess 4-5 yrs & still works good.The stick packs on the other hand have been cycled enough that they need to be replaced.
