Will the X-Car 60A ESC work fine for this motor or do I need the 120A version?
BTW, I'm not sure if the electrical figures are correct. 32A at 12,6V (max voltage for LiPo without load!) gives arround 400W...
Hi, just got this motor & installed on 2wd buggy...... Does this motor run safe on dusty loose dirt track? unlike most others, this motor has a lot open holes that the dirt might get in to the motor & damage it.
i would recommend blowing the motor out with air to keep it clean, plus a drop of oil on the bearings .. It should last you along time . If this little manitance is keeped up after each run at the end of the day.
Hi! I know that sensored motors has smoother start, but does anyone know if they has lower minimal rotation speed that sensorless, like brushed motors? On very low voltage sensorless motors suffer "cogging", am I right that sensored ones doesn't have these issues?
Your correct , censored motor dont cog that much. Unless the voltage is to low..
I bought this motor right away. Tested it quickly today. Seems to be good product. Tested it in X-fatory X6 sq 2wd buggy with Speed Passion Cirtix short course master -sensored esc with 2s Lipo. In cold weather it didn't even got warm. It came with a good quality sensor cable!
Will be testing more this weekend indoor racing... back for results.
Waiting for this beauty, because on the photo it seems so, well buit and with good space for soldering wires. Hope it works as it seems

I have this motor in a hpi cyber 10b with a Turnigy 60a esc and works very well, temperature is reasonable for a 4wd modified buggy. Compared to a novak 8.5, this one feels with more torque.

Ordered this motor the other week, when it arrived it looked awesome.
Put it in a Tamiya tt01e Porsche with a Hobby King 60a sensored ESC. Heaps of torque and a top end speed of 40kmh (gps) with standard gearing and NIMH batts!
Awesome motor for the price can not fault it so far.
Cant wait to re-gear the car and see what it can really do.
