I would run a 13 or 14.
check out www.rc-monster.com
The MMM comes with the castle link.

Word on 13 or 14. I've run 15 and even 17 with the 2200kV/MMM and it's only gotten 150F or so on the motor, and I think the Neu/Castle motors are a little more efficient than the Feigao though. I'm assuming you have the 46T spur gear?

Find Mod-1 pinions at:

RC Boyz eBay store :http://search.stores.ebay.com/RCBoyz...028217QQsofpZ0

Liquid RC:

http://www.liquidrc.com/index.php?ma...ort=20a&page=4

Both about half way down the page. Remember, you'll need a 1-Mod pinion. Don't make the mistake of getting 0.8 or 0.6. They won't work.

No, it comes with a 16. You will over heat your motor with a 16

Hey, I don't mean to steal this thread, but I have some similar questions.

I have an 8L, 9L, and 10L. Which motor would be best suited for a buggy conversion? Also, which pinion should I be using for 4s lipo.

Also, I have a few Mtroniks esc's, Truck, Pro, and Sport Plus. I'm assuming either the Truck or Pro should work fine for this.
