Looking for motor/esc advice
I'm an old hand when it comes to general bashers and racers, but this crawling stuff is new to me still, so, once again, here I am, asking questions like a noob!
In the morning I will be ordering the wife a WATERPROOF brushless system for her crawler. I am looking for advice on what the best one is to go with, not top-o-the-line expensive, but we have a modest budget for it. Here are our requirements:
She has a Losi 2.2 Comp crawler, with worm drive and DIG unit. She's running a FlySky FS-GT3b Tx/Rx, and hiTec titanium gear servo with a 2s 5400mAh 40c LiPo. I'm looking for decent speeds of about 8-12 mph, decent torque, and most importantly, waterproof.
Waterproof, speed and torque are what it needs as it will be used as a trail rig. I have already waterproofed everything else, but since having hassles with used equipment, I will be ordering it brand new for her. No more screwing around.
This is not a competition rig, it will be used for weekend runs with friends and likely nothing else.
Two options on my list have been the Turnigy Trackstar system and the waterproof Castle Sidewinder. Anyone have experience or a say on either of these?
One last thing: What is recommended Kv range?
