The Orion “Rush” series sounds like what you’re looking for. They’re dirt cheap and have bearings: https://www.ssl-stormerhobbies.com/c...pl?pn=ORN25103

Im in to nitro rc and am looking to get into electric as well but i know enought to give you some suggestions. go to each of these sights and decide for yourself what looks best:

If i were you i'd get a motor with lower turns (lower turns MORE power). Maybe get one with 12 or 14 turns - that will really get it moving, however if your using the stock speed contol im sure you would have to replace it, since it would probably blow, anyway i hope this helps you, all the motors i picked out seem alright, but i would go with TRINITY, they seemed to be the best out of them all.

Before dropping your money on a low turn motor check to see if your ESC can handle the load. Usually an RTR electric's ESC can go down to a 15 turn but may burn up if used with a low turn motor.
