Brushless motor

  1. Halfbreed
    Hi all.

    I'm new to the world of RC so need help. I bought an old Rustler VXL. Turns out the owner had changed ESC and motor. I've got the Robitronic Speedstar 8.5 ESC. The motor is not working properly, so I need to get a new one.

    I'm using my Rustler for bashing around. Mostly at the beach where there is loads of space. I use 2 sell LiPo.

    Any advice on how to go from here?

    1 - New motor: Which one will be fast, and will work with my ESC?
    2 - Complete new system: should I go for VXL and Velinion motor, or are there better (faster) options.

    I don't really understand the difference between the different options.

    What gives you speed? What gives you tork?

    My goal is a really fast Rustler with enough tork to handle rough terrain, but I would like to avoid it becoming a weelie monster.

    I went with the Castle Creations Sidewinder 3, 4600kv Motor / ESC combo. Itís
    Awesome on my Rustler on 2s and 3s lipos. It was only $99.

    The VXL is crazy fast with a 3-cell and should work fine with a 2-cell
