Default Tekin Redline gen 2 max RPM?

Anyone know the max RPM on these motors like how castle 540 motors have "100,000 RPM MAX" printed on them? I just got the 5 turn version.

Most motors don't have a max rating, because for one, you will never (under normal running conditions) hit high enough speeds that something is likely to happen due to speed.

A 5T motor will be getting after it. You generally don't ever want to free rev a motor at or anywhere near it's "maximum rpm." We don't give a spec like that so you can just arbitrarily "test" it if you get my meaning

Gear the motor correctly in your car, go fast, enjoy.

Haha thanks Randy. This motor is totally beastly! Very smooth and runs damn cool compared to the Castle 7700kv it replaced.

My TC4 should be going at least 90 mph with this on 3S. I know 3s is not recommended but this motor handles it very well. Runs only a little hotter than with 2s.
