Default Beginners ?

I am about to purchase a Tekno conversion kit for a losi 1.0 My question is when it says 36mm or 44mm motor mount whats the difference. Yes I get it that it's probally dealing with the size of the motor. I guess my question is what will I be limited to if I get a 36mm mount. What do you guys normally run 36 or 44's?

Also when it comes to ESC's whats considered the best. I hate that type question but I only want to buy this once.

I am no stranger to RC'ing, 1/8 scale or losi's. I'm just a nitro guy doing a conversion.

You are correct. The Tekno mounts are designed to accommodate motors of different diameters. 44mm are for finned Neu motors. 40mm for smooth can Neu motors. And 36mm for Feigao and Medusa motors. Obviously, if you get the 36mm you will be limited to Feigao an Medusa. You can use a 44mm mount to mount a smaller motor though. It wouldn't be ideal though as you would have a gap of dead air around the motor which could affect cooling. The Tekno mounts are an aluminum finned design engineered to help dissipate heat.

As far as ESCs - the best bang for the buck right now is the Castle Mamba Monster Max (MMM). Castle looks to have finally worked out the bugs since the initial release last summer. IMO nothing beats the MMM in ease of setup, configurability and manufacturer support.

If you have any other questions don't hesitate to call the guys at ImpactRC / TeknoRC. They are always more than willing to help out. Have fun with the build.

You could forgo the mount all together and pony up for the Tekno square Neu motor that does not require a mount. Check out the Tekno sight.

the 36mm mount will also fit the novak HV motors, not popular, but an option.
