    Leopard or hobbystar motor question

    I've never run leopard or Hobbies Star Motors but they seem to have a pretty decent track record. For those of you that are running these, can you run the 4092 at 1480 KV with the kraton blx185? I'm doing a rebuild right now but most of my attention is going to be on most everything except the...

    Remove bearings from BLX2050kv?

    Yesterday my 2050kv BLX motor in my Talion started making a slight rattling noise, Don't think it is the drive train as it rolls smoothly and quietly without the motor installed. I have checked the bearings and they are making a bit of noise. I have replacement bearings but how can I remove...

    Leopard 4082 2000kv?

    Im considering a new motor for my kraton, i have the blx200 and primarily run 4s geared with 19t pinion for bashing. Will the leo 4082 2000kv perform better than the stock blx motor or is it just a side step.

    New senton will not run

    I just purchased an arrma senton with the brushed motor for my son's birthday. He had a blast with it for about 10 minutes, and now the esc flashes a red light and will not go. I tried letting it sit and cool for an hour, and brought it back out with a fresh charged battery and it went about...

    BLX 185 - Will it power the SMC 1900KV motor?

    I quite honestly don't know what specs I need to be looking at to determine if a motor will work in my Talion. I'm looking at the SMC 1:8 scale 1900KV motor, and I'm unsure right now if the stock BLX 185 ESC will work to power this motor. I'm not sure what specs to look for when determining...
