    @Trexjohnson yes the Castle Creation will work just fine in the Arrma Fury.

    If you want to be able to use the stock pinion gear, then be sure to get the Castle motor with the 3.2mm motor shaft (not 5mm).

    Also, the Castle 1410 motor is a 540 4 pole motor which has a lot of torque. If you want something a little milder but still more power than the stock Mega motor, then I recommend a 540 2 pole motor.

    Best regards,
    Brian

    That is also what I was told about two versus four pole motors. Now I have both in my Fury's, I can say the difference is not noticable! What the four pole motor wins on torque, the two pole wins in extra rpm. So if you gear them correctly, you would not know the difference!

    Castle never states the maximum amperage a Esc can deliver. But those combo are very powerfull. I guess somewhere between 80 and 100 amps.
    The original BLX esc does 60-65amps.

    So if you buy a brushless combo of less than 60 amps, it will sure be more relax.
    And believe me, I have a 2800kV two pole motor here, which runs on a 45 Amp esc on 2S. It is more than triple as powerfull at least as the stock Mega ;)

    I have just purchased a brushless motor and ESC off ebay and wanted to know if the stock pinion and spur on my Mega Fury will cope or do I need to replace them with some other sizes?

    You can use your stock pinion and spur.

    Once you use it please review how the ESC and the motor works?

    Thanks. I have also purchased a few other upgrades, Wheels and Tyres, Shocks and I ended up buying a 15T pinion and 57T Spur.
    I will post a review when I get it all fitted.

    I am curious. How did the eBay motor and esc set workout? I have been looking at those too.
