A little. But 380 and 540 are different sizes. So confusing :P

So it has the torque of a 380 motor? But it's the size of a 540 motor?

So can I still run this baby for drifting?

Would a better explanation be its a 380 SIZE motor made to look & fit like a 540 (??)

It's a 380 motor in a 540 sized can. The heatsink fins add width, and there's a lump on the end to add length.

It'll be fine for drifting.

Yes, If you read the instructions they say up 11.1V is safe

With a volt meter hooked up between any 2 of the terminals, give the shaft a quick spin with your fingers,it should produce a bit of voltage, do this to every one.


Now, with the motor and esc hooked up like normal in your car,get out your volt meter, the negitive lead goes to the negitive of the battery,the positive you attach to one of the three terminals on the motor,turn on transmitter and esc with battery hooked up like normal, apply very light throttle, you should be able to read voltage, Maybe about 1 volt less than your battery voltage eg. 6.9 volts. Do this for every termial. If you increase the throttle to much you will get a lower reading because of the sampling rate of the digital volt meter. See how you get on.

Kistner -cant find any info on a CC Esc

ooooooooooook, finally got to doing this.. motor checks out fine, esc seems to do what you said above ok, cant get a real good test on it though as everything heats up so quickly i dont want to melt anything. its definitely not my spektrum receiver as i checked it on another set. i think its the esc myself...

Default Which motor

So after some reading im gonna get the 60 amp esc, with either the 8.5t or 13.5t motor. Its going in a redcat volcano (truck). Im not sure how much it weighs but its under 5 pounds, maybe like 4 with the battery. Its a 1/10th scale 4wd. I know some guy put a 8.5 in a slash and it was good. But would the 8.5 not have enought torque, or should i just go with the 13.5?

Edit: 4 pounds is 1800 grams, and people said that the 380 sized motor will push a 1500 gram car pretty good, so im thinking that a 1800 gram truck with the 540 motor at 8.5 turns would be ok.

the 8.5 combo will be perfect. plenty of torque. just make sure you gear it properly. i only killed mine through stupidity (hit a puddle)

Default fan

Im just picked up some 8.4v batteries, and i was wondering how to change the fan so it can do the 7 cell batteries. I thought i read somewhere that you can re-wire it or something. What do you have to do for that? Do i just buy a new fan, or what?

you can replace the original fan with a higher rated one for use with higher than 7.4 volts, just unsolder/resolder where they go on originally.


and they say not to go lower than 5.5 with the 60A and 9T with the 35A esc.
