Default Engine Help

Hello,
I recently discovered a buggy for cheap all appears to work well with the exception that is missing a motor. I have no idea what kind of motor it would take. I will post pictures of it. The wing says buds racing products if thats anyhelp. The battery says 7.2 volts 2000mAh. The speed control module says NOVAK T-4 speed control with a neutral adjustment and speed adjustment. Any help as to what kind of motor and where to purchase a motor would be apreciated. Here is a link to pictures of my buggy. http://tinyurl.com/2qhoyc

It looks like a RC10 but since its older than me, I'm not sure. Any 540 (typical) motor will fit but I've never heard of that ESC so I can't help you there. I am sure it can handle a stock (27 turn) motor though.

No associated looks like that.

looks like a Frankenstein buggy... doesn't look anything like a production vehicle.

That is a 1st generation associated rc10. It looks to have been upgraded from the gold aluminum tub to the flat graphite.

The novak T-4 was the top of the line speed control back in the late 80's.

Any 540 size motor would work in that, you could even go with a brushless system if you wanted too, but I don't think that tranny would hold up for very long with brushless.

How much are you paying for it? I would say don't pay over $50

Yup its a RC10. Any engine would work but dont go to powerfull b/c you can destroy the trany. www.rc10talk.com will give you a wealth of information.

Seeing that you got it for free, and if would like to make a couple of bucks send me a pm. I have been looking for one of those.
