Default new motor

I have a stock electric rustler and looking for a motor with some more torque and pep. I have stock xl-1 esc so I've heard about a p2k 27turn, 22x1 magnetic mayhem or monster horsepower 27 turn. Then if there's a 17turn that won't fry my esc, this is a possibilty.
Can you guys share some wisdom here.

perhaps it would be wiser to keep your motor for the time being, and get an LRP or novak speed controller. then when funds become available again, get whatever motor you want

that way when you want to upgrade again you just need another new motor, instead of a motor and speed control. id personally go with a new ESC. that will put you on the road to building a super rustler. save up, slap a 12x2 motor in there, some hop ups, and show the kids at the track what punks they are for running losi

just my .02. most often the slowest route is the most satisfying!

If I keep my stinger for now and drop my pinion from 18 stock to 17 or 16, this will give me some added torque out of the turns.This will rob some top end too, right. I'll probably keep the rusty on the street for now running tight short straight away tracks. I'll use my nitro to bash in the dirt.
I'll start saving for that esc !

I don't know what happened but the ol' stinger acts like he come to life. I'm only running 1500 batteries with everything stock and it was bolting on the street pretty good. Only mod is road rage II's on the back. Don't laugh me to shame but I might as well have fun with this motor for awhile.

BTW you guys got videos on this forum?

From what I understand, the newer motor designs can be a pig when it comes to battery usage as they are optimized for the newer high capacity cells.

If this is for bashing and the motor can handle down to 17 Turns, the Reedy Quad Mag 19T motor is pretty fast and has alot of torque.

If you want a stocker the P2k or P2k2 are pretty good in that area. I also hear that the Orion stocker is pretty torquey as well.

I went with the 27t p2k and it cranks off the line , compared to the stinger. I have to gear it higher to get some more top end and try to keep that bottom bang.
Boy at the lhs said the reedy 19 would be too much for the rusty. JB
