Default What is the Best Brushless Motor System

I use to have a novak system but I sold it cause it was way to fast for me. Now I'm ready to give it a go again. Anyone have any experience with the brushless systems out there?

My advice is : mabushi 540 + mechanical speed controller + 1200SCR pack, that should fit your drivin' skills

I don't worry, your motor should melt before the end of the run

I've never heard of a mabuchi 540 engine. only motors...
that's interesting. I wonder why people call engines either "engines" or "motors"
but you don't often hear electric motors called "engines"? is that a silly question? sorry to get off topic.

I happen to think that there is no absolute best brushless systems, but that some brushless motors fit certain applications better than others. like for a speed junkie, a really insanely fast system is perfect. but since you said that you don't need all of that excessive speed, maybe a novak ss4800 would be nice. I think that is the most "tame" motor that novak makes. but it is still "fast enough."

Engine and motor are really actually synonymous.(Motor vehicle, motor oil, etc. are all for "engines") I believe technically, an engine is a type of motor, since a motor is anything that produces motion. However, the electric motors we call are called motors because they convert electrical energy into mechanical. Engines operate off of internal or external combustion. So, an engine is a motor, but a motor isn't an engine necessarily.

Wow, I can't believe I actually wrote that, lol

Really? What about siege engines then? I think engine is synonymous with mechanical device, not any particular type of device though.


As far as brushless motors (or engines) go, I agree with rs4rallydriver, figure out what you want it for then look for what's best. Best will vary depending on who you ask and if you need it to be ROAR legal etc. How fast do you want it to go? My Plettenberg Shadow + UForce combo is faster than I can drive well, so pure power may not be what you really want . The Novak SS 5800 I have is slower, but still works fairly well.
Try looking <http://forums.radiocontrolzone.com/forumdisplay.php?f=335> for more information on alternate setups (ie 4 cell LiPo).

Synonymous as in that you can use both words, such as buying motor oil for your car's engine. A gas engine can be considered a motor, however, an electric motor would not be called an engine. Just like a square is a rectangle, but not vice versa.

Siege engines impart energy and motion, which is what a basic motor does.

This is out of Webster handy college dictionary, third edition

engine: n. 1, any machine that converts energy into work. 2, any mechanical contrivance. 3, a railroad locomotive.

motor: n. 1, a source of mechanical power. 2, a machine that transforms the energy of water, steam, electricity, etc. into mechanical energy; engine. 3, an automobile: motor car. adj. 1, causing or imparting motion. 2, automobile.

contrivance: n. 1, a mechanical device. 2, a means of doing.
