Default Starter Box Motor Help Please

I have a cheapy starter box which i used for onroad. It's running a 12v gell cell battery though i am going to change to a 4S lipo. it doesnt seem to have enough gots to turn my hyper 7 motor. i know these motors are tight normally, but even when the motors hot the starter cant turn it.

its this starter box:

http://www.modelengines.com.au/view/...m/BSD7016.html

I figure rather than buying a whole new starter box i will just get some new motors. What sort of motor should i put in it? i'm not sure what size ones are in it? how can you tell?

i just want something more powerfull so if someone could please let me know where i can buy better motors from.... that would be great

thanks
Alex

i would look at amain hobbies for some new motors or look at getting a new starter box .... the ofna truggy starter box is one of the best out on the market right now with 2 monster motors that will start any motor new or used and works great with lipo

i would leave the motors you got for now and get that 4s lipo your talking about.. that will give you way more power then new motors with the gel cell. Power comes from battery.

i dont see him say the motors are BAD.... he's just not getting enough power out of them with the 12v gell cell... throw a 14.8v in that thing and watch it come alive. that box prob comes with two 550's which is enough to start any nitro.

yeah it has 2 550's. they're definately not bigger. but they are a bit longer than 540's so i think 550's..... i might try lipo first as i want one for it anyway.

if i just get a cheap one like this http://hobbycity.com/hobbycity/store...idProduct=9264
will that be enough... or do you have to get some whiz bang flash one?

good find! I might get one of these myself!
I would just get a lipo for now and when you want something better get the ofna truggy box which comes with 775's.

true...

I spent all my cash on a new drifter this week so i'll wait and get the bigger one. Once i got that, i'll see how it goes and upgrade motors if necessary.... or get a better starter box since it might only cost a bit extra.

thanks for all your help
Alex
