Hi,

I have rebuild it.

Changed the motors for Team Orion Havok 24 turns engines.

I also changed the connectors. Cutted of the tamiyaconectors, and changed them for corally connector so I can use my elecric race packs to power my startbox.

I think replacing the 2 motors to some high torque (like 24T are good, someone already mentioned) motor are much better then cutting the com and arms on the original stock 540......those motors are garbage anyway.

And I also did this....add extra set of plug and powered by (3) 7.2 V stick pack.....longer run time and more powerfull start.....used that starter box to turn over a brand new EVO5 21 Nova Mega for good 1 gallon of fuel....no problem.

P.S. Replace the rubber wheel too.
