Default 1/8 brushless motors

hello
Im beginning converting a 1/8 nitro onroad car to brushless. Im thinking to buy an mmm v3 and 6s lipos but im seriously in doubt with the motor. Here (in spain) there is 2 or 3 guys have had bad experiences with motor because temp issues (one of them have seen burn his car). Id like to know what motor is more "cold" and is more heat-resistant...

Regards

What car are you thinking of converting? 6s would definatly be the way to go and I would guess that a motor in the region of 1800kv to 2200kv would be ideal. Temps would depend on the size of the track and the gearing. I did think about getting a brushless 8th onroad car but I just dont think the technology and designs are quite there yet.

Hi
I could get an edam razor very cheap, so is this car im going to convert... Im agree with you: 6s with a 2000Kv (or aprox) but which motor? The track is not so big but i think the important is a motor heat-resistant and id like to know which is the better...
The 1/8 electric technology is newborn but i want to try this crazy fast car without nitros inconveniences.

Then you should go for the Neu motor. You should be able to get a combo deal motor/esc from Castle.

Definately look at the Castle/Neu motors. I just put their new 1518 1800kv in my 1/8 IGT2 with 26/46 (first) and 30/43 (2nd gear) and this thing is an absolute blast. The motor is bigger and desinged to handle a much higher load on a continuous basis (1500 watts continuous and 3000 watt burst). Using the motor/gear calcs, it should be in the 70 mph range but has tremendous low rpm torque. Oh yea, the best part is I'm running 4S2P 7800mah packs and was running 12 min sessions with the temp peaking ~ 150
