8 poles.. Torque behemoth! I know with some of those rebranded HW ESC's you lose some tuning functionalities sometimes. That motor looks stout though!

I thought it was a rocket or Hobbystar but that motor seems to be unique being 8 pole. I like the inbetween 960kv and the non exposed bearing at the back end.

Yeah it should be a powerhouse! HW makes 4 pole 8 magnet mills and they really don't have much if any cogging. 8 poles should be as smooth as a sensored set up! :unsure: Got me thinking for my own!

Just ordered one to test out, this motor looks like a beast. At that price it’s hard not to get it just because.

I’m still deciding between a Max5 or going for a Castle esc.
Me too! If I go for the castle I will go with their motor to take advantage of the sensored esc. This motor and the max5 comes in a lot cheaper and you don’t need a computer or phone to program it...

The options are either go with a max5 and save money, or spend a bit more and go with Castle and have the ability down the line to put in a sensored motor. It’s a tough call. I’ll probably come across a used max5 for a steal and go that route. I’m in no rush to upgrade right now either.
