Default Serpent CObra GT-e, what motor?

Just trying to decide between the nitro GT and the GT-e and wondering if i read correctly. Does the GT-e not hold a Mamba Monster 1/8 motor? if not, what motor are you guys using to give it plenty of 'thrust'. Thoughts? comparisons?

Thanks for the help

I'm running a Tekin 1700KV on 6 cells. The car is fast. If you want to stick with 4 cells go with the Tekin 2650 or 2050. I raced mine the first time this weekend and was surprised how much faster it was then the gas guys and I get longer run times then they do between tanks!

Any of the Tekin buggy motors will fit.

GT-E won't fit long/truggy motors like the mamba 2200 but will fit the mamba or tekin 2650(along with any other short can) or if u go 6cell like Dave mention then that opens up a lot more possibilities

If you can wait go for the new tekin T8i 2700kv motor with the new GEN2 RX8
