    Losi muggy brushless conversion

    I am very new to the brushless scene and the amount of motors on the market is baffling. Coming from nitro, i know sb and bb

    Can someone point me on my way to what is a good motor for a muggy conversion? Im not looking to spend an arm and a leg but something with quality.
    Also what about ESC and batteries?

    RE: Losi muggy brushless conversion



    I have been looking around for my LST electric setup to. For ESC I am looking at something that can handle around 150 amps,  and go with 2 3S Lipo packs hard cased.  Not sure about motor I am still looking around for that myself. devious1 been doing a conversion to here.  Take a look at that for other good ideas.

    RE: Losi muggy brushless conversion

    What is a general price range?
    i have a leopard 2000kv setup in my muggy for test runs.
    all depend on what you want to do with the muggy
    Mild bashing, street, outrageous speed.
    I am testing on 2 3s turnigy nanotech 6000mah lipo's
    will probably be switching to venoms as i can get those for the same price as the turnigys
    at my lhs plus limited lifetime warranty

    If you need help let me know
    If your runing the Blue can motor that is actually a $46 Keda motor
    the Leopard motors are of much better quality and put down more power

    Yeah its a blue can 2000kv, Nothing spectacular by any means its the same size visually as the mmm 2200kv

    I am glad to hear the actual leo motors are going to be better than what i have.
    I am planning on the 4092 around 1700ish kv probably for my final motor as i dont know if i want to grind away at my motor mount for the 1717.

    yeah the blue can Keda motors are ok, but the Leopards are much better
    the Leopard 4092 is very much like a CC1520 motor, and those kick butt!
    the 4092 is going to be more than enough for your needs in this Muggy [:-]
    I was thinking of doing a Track Star 4068 2560kv on 4s in my Muggy.. but I think this one I will keep nitro and go with maybe a OS30

    Glad to hear about the 4092 i keep hearing its a nice in between the 1520 and the 1527.
    hoping to keep my 16t 46t setup or go up a tooth or 2 for street use. with the 4092 1730kv.

    as for the trackstar, I have a Toro system (same thing) flipped the switch on the esc after leaving it sit for the winter, e.s.c. went poof.
    the motor is the 2560kv i havent tested it out yet this year.

    I had been running 6s lipo on that setup for over a year at the time in my E-revo
    it was a fun little set up.

    seen a couple youtube vids on 4s in a muggy, looks like it cooks pretty good.

    I wish you luck with the os.30 if you go that direction.
    i didn't have great luck with my os.30, (other people have great luck)
    my lrp.30 rocked my savage xl.

    The 4092 is 4mm longer than the castle 1520 motor
    not near the power of the 1527
    and they are coming out with a NEU 1530 2200kv that would make for a monster setup !!

    RE: Losi muggy brushless conversion

    Although a 1527 with 2300kv would be an absolute monster on 6s also.
    i dont think my leo or mmm esc would be much good with that kind of a setup.
