I am thinking of a new motor....
« on: June 06, 2013, 03:53:25 PM »
So I might be in the market for a new motor or two for my drift cars. Now up untill now I have been a crawler guy and have paid very little attention to any other forms of RC. Well for about the last six months I have been beating on a few motors in my drift cars. One is a 27t that is a rebuildable  one the others are stock 20t Losi and Axial cans. I really like the 27t but it is getting weak. It's a Puttman Perpulsion (funny name!) and I bought it 2nd hand.

Now I may get into laithing and rebuilding them in the future (Matt even offered to help) but for now I am wondering if anyone has a suggestion or two. What to buy? Who has them for sale locally?

IMO it only makes sense to go brushless.  Something 4000-6000kv 2s.  I prefer Castle stuff but many like sensored for drifters.

I have tried them and yes they have a ton of power  and are dirt cheap but I like my two Sidewinder systems. I just want some motors....
