Wait 4 weeks for this motor and got very disapointed, as i found out that it doesn't work with Hobby King 100 A Sensored ESC. Waist of time and money. I have tried all possible set up of the ESC, but keep on not workin, no signal of life. Thrown it in the Garbage !!!
dear C.H. What might have happened is that the speed controller in question might not be rated for 2 pole motors. I haven't recieved mine yet so I can't verify, but this might be a 2 pole design. Just a thought, will post pole count when the package arrives.
A motor with a Kv this high is more than likely a 2 pole motor or a MAX 4 pole design. Look at the esc's rating for compatability with low pole count motors. Many esc's are rated for a minimum of 4 poles. Most car esc's can handle 2 pole unless otherwise stated. Good luck!
this motor run very hot only mounted in car.
even whith weels off,even out of the car.
is powered by sensored turnigy esc at 7.4 volts whith no timming and low punch.
i cant test in track,due the risk of esc damage
I'm buying the sensored 60amp xcar esc to go with mine. Have to wait a few weeks until I get it to report back. Normally I wouldn't buy a motor this powerful, but I've got an itch to see what a stupidly high kv motor is like. :) Scanner only seems to work with scanner motors too. *)
Easy to solder, solder took to the cups very easily. The actual colour of the motor is not black as the picture leads to believe, it's grey. Bench runs fine with the sensored 60A car esc in sensored mode.
It's build construction is excellent and very clean with access to both end bearings to add some scorpion oil when needed without having to open it up. Hand turning the shaft suggests a very strong magnet.
Have this on my TC4 with the 60A esc, goes like stink. runs very cool and makes theold 5700KV i had in there look like a toy

Drive it on the HPI Sprint 2 with HK 100A sensor, it is worth every cent. Cheap and strong, works well.

Excellent motor!!! Use it on my Tamiya F103GT 2wd. Esc was Turnigy Trackstar 60A, Lipo Turnigy 4000mah 2s hardcase, gear at 3.61. After 15min run everything is only slight warm to touch!
The motor is so quiet when running, motor start smooth with minimal cogging in sensorless mode. Good construction and strong magnet. Thanks Hobbyking!!!

Put this in my DB01 4WD buggy and it is a seriously quick motor, maybe not as quick as the equivalent from one of the big brands but then it is also about a third of the price. My only complaint is that it has fixed timing but when you have this much power does it really matter? I would definitely recommend this to anybody who wants a cheap mod motor for racing, but only when your motor is in-board as the ventilation holes could pose a problem for rear mount motors in buggies such as TRF201 or B4.
