Talking e-revo on dewalts?

this is really cool! my e-revo motor burned out so i've been looking at some other motors. brushless is to costly, kershaw is to energy consuming http://kershawdesigns.com/

so i found this: http://www.robotmarketplace.com/prod...396505-21.html

it fits right in and has more power than kershaws. here is a youtube video:

and those are on 12v motors.

these things are made to pull 60 lbs each. imagine two! the price tag is attractive too...

That looks interesting! Quite a bit of torque... I wonder if anyone uses them at the track???

Yep looks to have more than enough torque, but I think it's going to be too slow for racing. With a pair of them maybe, you could gear it up. I wonder if he is using the stock esc in that video though.

yup. gear it way up and you have a nice motor to run with. i'm more of a bashing racer and this will work nicely
