+1 sofar they have shown to have produced a great product. Their specs are awesome. I am far more impressed with the quality they offer vs. LRP's.

Lastly their customer support in Europe is awesome too, I got an immediate reply once I inquired about Motor setup for 1/8 E-On-Road, and was forwarded the info from some other drivers running the Ruddog motors in that class.

Got at 17.5 for one of my buggies. It's very good overall. Doesn't need much timing to scream. Can't be beat for price. I may grab a few more.

Default Mod motors

Add me to the very pleased category on there 540 motors got myself a 6.0T for my 4wd buggy very impressive smooth very smooth and the got a lil beast mode in them very well built in fact I think there built as good if not better then any motor out there. I got an 8.5T on the way for 2wd buggy Iíll update with my findings but they seriously are so very well built money aside although itís refreshing to see something quality that donít have some wack arse price tag like I donít want to be that guy taking shots at a company but youíll know who Iím talking about yes they build some quality products but when your putting a price tag on a 1/10 scale esc thatís damn near $400 without programmer thatís just B.S. period I mean some of these items are starting to get outlandish with there pricing and build quality so kudos Ruddog thank you for putting something well built something quality not cheaply slapped together and getting it in the working mans price range right on very cool

So I know its been an almost 7 month update, but I am still very happy. The RP690 1800KV has held up amazingly well in my Truggy, having been paired with an XR8 Pro it worked great. I have torn the motor down to replace shims and bearings, and have not noticed and major wear and tear. Like I said before quality is awesome and I will probably switch the ST trucks to Ruddog and try their 1/10 lineup.

So running the RP690 1800KV in E-buggy, and it is doing great. No overheating, good power, stays relatively "cool".

Again good fitment, solid machining, easy to solder wires onto.

Two Thumbs up here.

Finally got a 540 5.5T motor, running Pro10 2S. I love the motor, good performance, have not had the need to run a motor fan as of yet. Been running on a long track, will check temps on a shorter course. Only thing i would have liked is two instead of one sensor wire port. Was easy to solder up.

Sofar, id recommend them based on my onroad excursion.

Moved the RP690 to my Truggy now.

The fan mount is a cool idea. I hope others try something similar.

Nice! After seeing my buddy's motor burn up a few weeks ago I'm adding a fan to my motor. He had a main right after his last qualifier so it didn't have time to cool.

I look forward to hearing how well it works.
