Something to watch when comparing motors could be wattage, the more watts it draws the more power it puts out theoreticallySuch a tough delema lol. I wish there was some number i could go by like hp on these motors. Is there any sort of mesurement i could use to compare the two motors
Amen on the programming card! Otherwise, you're stuck counting beeps which is tantamount to "hope & pray".If you get the Castle system, spend the extra $25 and get the program card http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXYWV0&P=V. This makes programing the ESC super easy, so you can tailor it to your needs.
"Torque versus top end", thanks Rumble. I've been wanting to know the diff in kV's.I just put a castle sidewinder 3 with the 4600kv motor in my fury and it crazy fast. I strongly recommend the field link card. So you dail it in to a drivable control. As far as motors the lower the kv the more torque and get up and go. The higher the kv the higher the top speed. I would suggest staying in a lower kv because you all ways have your gearing to play with to get you the speed.
While looking around eBay, came across these:I'm glad I found this debate..... I was wondering the same thing ..... I have the blx and burned up the esc on it and was looking for a replacement tho I wanna replace the motor also...... So I think I sold on the sidewinder esc as far as should the sidewinder esc and motor would be a good replacement..... I also looked into the xerun series from hobbywing what do y'all think of those?....
