Default what brushless motor do you recommend..

In my secondary truck (blitz) i picked up a castle sidewinder sct esc. Im wondering what a good motor choice would be for it? The 4 pole 3800 castle seems a little overkill for 2wd. Would a vxl motor work? Any recommendations?

I have a VXL motor in my slash, and it works perfect for my slash. I think its a great choice for a motor. I havent had any problems with it and I have had it for 2 years.

Default castle 4 pole

I have the castle 4 pole 3800KV in my blitz right now and its great. I have it turned down on my remote to 75% power. it's got plenty of power. and you cant beat the price. get the castle, you will be happy with it.

I also run the mamba max pro with the 4600KV in my blitz normally. its also a great setup for the blitz. i have no complaints.
