Default e-revo motor help

I have a e-revo, with a mamba monster esc and 2x 2 cell team orion 3800mah batts, and i would like to know what motor that will do good for it. I bought a feigao 8xl but it is bad and i cant get the guy who sold it to me to respond so i guess im outta luck. I live in Texas so it gets real hot and i only drive my cars when its warm outside. So i think i need a motor that wont overheat on me. But im a college kid on a budget of around $100 to $150. Can anyone recommend a motor for me? I would consider used but I'm skeptical now since the last used motor i bought doesn't work and i am out my money, even thou the guy on here who sold it to me has good rep.

any help or info is greatly appreciated

Get the Medusa 36-80. It's $145 plus shipping or you can buy the 36-70 for $123 plus shipping. I'm running a Medusa 36-70-2000Kv on 5S on my revo conversion. Nice runtimes and temps.

i just purchased a medusa 36-70 2300 kv.only gonna be running 4 cell lipo. i would skip the fiegaos... they are a temporary motor in most cases. they draw a lot of current,get hot and die.the medusa's are worth the extra money,especially because you wont have to keep buying them.if you go lipo,the hobbycity 4000 mah's have worked for me(zippy 2 cell hardcase),as well as the protek 4000 15 c from amain.i understand you have a budget,and those packs are around 30 each(naturally you'll need at least two).just wanted to give you a heads up.at race pace,you'll be lucky(from my experience)to get 7-8 minutes out of your 3800's.
i got my medusa from rc-monster.

If I were you I'd call out the guy, file a paypal claim for giving you a NOT AS DESCRIBED item, and see if he responds to you then.

Default motor

I had a mamba max and I used a fieago 9xl. I was extremely impressed. It was so fast it would flip my emaxx over if I got a little to heavy on the trigger to fast. LOL. I would personally go with a fieago. Just my opinion.
