An 11x3 checkpoint is way to much for a 2wd unless your track is HUGE. You probably should get two different motors and 4wd likes lower turns while 2wd likes higher turns.

You could use a 12x2 checkpoint in both if you had to. The 12x2 would be good in a 2wd. It is best if you can spare to money to get motors for each car. It is going to get old switching out the motors all the time. The Checkpoint motors claim of lasting 40 runs before needing rebuild is true. This does not apply to the 19T Money motor though. It uses different brushes and will only last 10 to 15 runs. The checkpoint mod motors are real screamers. I would go with a 12x2 in the 2wd and a 10x2 in the 4wd.

Checkpoint Money is awesome... I run one in both my 2WD and 4WD and have plenty of power. The best thing about the 19T is u have the torque needed to get a 4WD rolling - and the speed for a 2WD depending on how you gear your car.

I originally bought the motor becasue I loved the idea of getting 20 runs on a set of brushes - after running it against guys that have 12-turn motors in their cars, I can say that the motor is not a disappointment at all.

lol, brushless would be my favorite option but being 16 and not being allowed to get a job money is tight.

I would go with the 12t. If you have a good speedo controlling that power shouldnt be to hard at all. Especially if you run on a high grip track. You might find yourself thinking you could run a faster motor, if you have a smooth trigger finger that is!

ill most likley be running a GTX esc. and smooth is an understatment. i ran a mamba 8000 in a mini-t with a 3 cell lipo. geared with the stock spur and a 16t pinion you couldnt give full throttle or you would flip!!! got to the point where i could keep the front down doing speed runs and could even do a controlled wheelie!
