Officaly Ordered, I went with The Sensored Trackstar Motor from Hobbyking
LINK: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...or_1900KV.html

After going to my Club races for the eletric guys ( i normally only race nitro days)
This seems to be a very popular Motor w/ an 120 amp Hobby wing ESC.

So Ill be running it with a RX8 and picking up another speedo later for my 4x4. !

Not bashing this at all, but ive heard way to many bad things about this combo, heard better things about rip-off china brands then speedpassion with this combo.... just the motor really... But i have an rx8 so no need for a esc... :P

To the Sky toro guy, I dont like that they use a 380 motor stator in there 1/10 motors and they tend to run really hot, so i dont know how there 1/8 stuff is. and dont really want to try. I have a T8 comming to my LHS for layway, this will be a motor that i had ordered to hold me off and then to be put in my emaxx.

I dont know much about the speed passion motor but the ESC is really good. I would suggest it to anyone looking for a good ESC for the price. Supposedly, the Hobbywing ESC is the same just rebranded.

Let us know how that Trackstar motor works. I am interested

I recently ordered one of those Turnigy 1900kv sensored motors, but haven't received it yet.

It gets good reviews so far, it's sensored, and it's under $60. How bad can it be really?

Not much to lose buying one...so I figured why not.
