If you would look on page 2 under this forum (Electric & Nitro Offroad) you will find a thread about 8 to 10 threads down from the top called XXX-CR thread. This very specific to this car. Also the B4 has one called the B4/T4 where they talk about those two cars only. All you have to do is look.

Maybe a 12 turn ?

And whats the best brand to look into?
and if i get the 12 turn i dont know what size gears to get.... ugh!... lol
Most of the pros run around a 10 turn motor. Is there any brand of motor you are after? Is this buggy going to be for racing only?

Cheers

Yes, It will be for racing only. I was going for a novak but havnt had time to look for any brushed motors on there site. All ive seen are brushless.

And i did look under that thread... couldnt find anything that was useful so i clicked on search this thread typed in servo, batterys, speed control and got nothing but bs and people talking about how to wire them. Nothing about what works best, What brand, how much, ect. All the need to know info is not there. Most the questions i see there can be answered in the manual.

Novak only sells brushless motors. Look at Team Checkpoint, Team Orion, Trinity, and Reedy for good brushed motors. Look at Tower Hobbies for these.

YOU REALLY NEED TO FIND OUT WHAT CLASSES ARE BEING RUN BEFORE BUYING A MOTOR.

If they are running stock or 19T spec you will not be allowed to race with a mod motor!!!!

Here is a good unlimited setup that will allow you to run whatever motor is required.

Novak GTX speed control
Futaba 9402 coreless analog servo or JR Racing 590M if you on a budget.
Radio of your Choice (3 channel would be ideal. I like Spectrum DX3.)
Battery- Promatch 4200 WC 6 cell packs- These batteries are sick.
Whatever motor meets the criteria of the class you want to run.

Talking brushed

Team Checkpoint make awesome mod motors as do Orion.Checkpoint is easier to work on than the Orion.both produce wicked power.

If you are serious about racing in mod class use the 5800 (8.5) or the 7.5 instead. The 3.5 is for onroad only. The GTB comes in the 7.5 motor combo too.

If your lookin to be competitive inthe mod class get a 12 turn Checkpoin motor, or any other 12 turn Trinity or Orion. Reedy motors aren't that good. Checkpoints last forever. Orion lasts pretty long but doesn't have the power as the other motors. Any IB4200 or GP3700 are good packs. that will work well. Any high speed servo works, Airtronics 94361(I think that is the right number) with the blue heat sink is a really great servo. The Novak GTX is a great speed control, also the LRP Quantum Competition 3 is good. Radion systems don't matter as much, the Airtonics M11 is good and so is the Futaba 3PK. I hope that answered all of your questions.

Clint
