Default Surpass Hobby Rocket Taurus 1/8 Sensored Motor

The motor has been release for a few months now. With a lot of good review from their Surpass V4s, I'm expecting a good review from this product too.

They released 2 versions of this model
1. 4268 on-road
2. 4272 off-road

Both are released with several kv option to choose.
Whats your thought?


4268 on-road motor


4272 off-road motor

No they just came out, and the team drivers are running them. Glad to see someone gearing their 1/8 on motors towards on road!

The one from Performa Racing also got a lot of cut out on the can for better cooling. I still skeptical if its on dusty condition

I've got a 1950kv 4274 Taurus in my MBX7 Eco and it's a beast. I've already blown the tires off a set of wheels and had to turn down the punch in my ESC. There's a bit of low speed cogging but that might be my ESC. I've got the previous gen Surpass 4274 sensored motor on a different ESC with no cogging on a SkyRC TS150. The Taurus is using a HW XR8 SCT. Both motors are fantastic and were very affordable. $50 shipped for the first gen and $62 for the Taurus. Build quality is good for both.

Yes. Hybrid and full sensored mode with the HW ESC. I'm going to try and adjust the punch settings to see if that helps. It could be the ESC.

Cogging on sensors nowadays may be only a problem with esc/halls or terrible motor engineering

Btw, hows the temp of the motor? Currently i'm using hw 4268 1900kv, but the temp after 10min is about 175 to 180 without fan. So i wonder if this motor really does run cooler

Temps are fine. But they depend on gearing, track, car weight etc.
