Default Vintage Kyosho Optima Motor

HI All
i am refurbishing my old Optima from 30 years ago to give to my son.

i need a new motor, and could use a recommendation. i have an Axial AE-5 ESC and a Venom 5000 7.2v battery.

i'm looking for something basic for a motor, that will last a while during battery charges. i'm pretty ignorant of what is out there, since i've been disconnected from RC for many years, but want to get back into it.

thanks!
Brian
