Questions?? 19t Money Motor and my Sprint 2...

Is this possible with the stock electronics (speed sensor, etc.)? It's been sitting for a while and I'm trying to get back into it and I've read a bit on this motor and figured it would do the job. Unless there are other suggestions?
Also having trouble finding this motor.

Any help is appreciated!

These were ballistic motors back in the days of brushed touring cars. You'll have a hard time finding one, as brushed motors haven't been the norm for 2-3 years in TC racing, but I would start watching the For Sale thread for one in decent shape if you REALLY want one.

If you're looking at brushed, I would go with a 19 turn wind, but more likely I would look at getting a brushless system. There's less maintenance involved to keep it running well, and there is a plethora of motors around that will satisfy any speed you would like to go.

I would look at brushless systems made by Speed Passion. They have their Cirtix line of ESC's that are a little more simple, and then they have their GT2.0's and GT2.1's as their more complicated, but better featured competition line.

Great! I'll start looking more into them.
Thanks a lot!
