Default 540 to 380 Motor Adapter, where can I find one like this?

Here in this thread is a 380/540 motor adapter:
http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...380-motor.html

I am looking to make my 540 motor mount hold a 380 brushless motor.

Does anyone know where I can find one, or something similar? The thread itself is old and and am looking for something similar preferably a bit thinner if possible.

If the TB-03D accepts any 540 style motor, then yes it will fit.

Curious, why fit a 380 motor in your TB-03D?

If you want a straight 540-sized motor can but with a 380 rotor, you should check out the integer-numbered turn motors from Hobbywing.

I have a 4300Kv (9T) Hobbywing motor. The can is a 540 sized, but the rotor inside is a 380-sized motor. Since it's in a 540-sized can, the body is heavily extruded for heat sinking:

It's a side project I am doing that's all. i have an extra TB-03D chassis not in use.

My TB-03D has a 9T EZrun 4000kv system as well. Same as you. I also knew it was a 380 by how deep the grooves in the sink were.

I want to put a Traxxas Velineon VXL-3M Brushless System - 1/16 just for kicks. See how it looks and runs.

It's a project.
