Default DBX Brushless convert, motor choice?

What motor would you choose for a Brushless convert of a DBX? Ill probably use a DBX VE motormount and modify it to fit, or manufacture a new motormount.

The ESC will be a Hobby King 150A High performance Brushless Car ESC

Please motivate your choice =)

This motor on 3s 4000mah 30C would be sick.

Motor: http://www.castlecreations.com/products/nc1415.html

For 2s I would get a higher kv around 4000.

You could try the tacon motors if you are on a budget. I run a tacon 1/8th size motor and its a beast yet still runs cool. Just make sure you get a motor that is more low end power than top end for the 4x4.

Im also looking at this motor from hobbyking.com :
Turnigy TrackStar 4068 2560KV 1/8th Brushless Motor

What about that?


Anyone got more alternatives for me? It's a jungle with brushless motors out there!
