Default Starter box motors for serpent box.

Want to replace my motors with something rebuildable,what turn motor would be good?You would think any motor would be stronger than the stock closed endbells that came in it.I took apart one of the old motors and unwound the winds and it was 20,does that mean the stock motor is 20 turn?I was gonna put the traxxas 12 turn 550 motors they have in rtr kits,would those work??

I am using 23 turns TeamOrion Havok motors, it is much better than the stock 540 motors.
Speed is only fiction but a 130+km/h MRS4 is for real.

I replace the stock motors with 19 turn motors on all my Serpent starter boxes.

I replaced mine with E-Max motors years ago and have had no issues starting anything so far.
You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.
Never argue with an idiot, they'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
