Good brushless motor for cheap?
My friend got a brushed Slash and is running a LIPO in a brushed car. I figure he'll blow the motor pretty soon, so I'm trying to find a replacement so we can still race. Are hobbywing EZRUN brushless motors okay? I'm talking about maitinance and not breaking here.
What are the main things that determine performace of brushless motors? I see turns, Kv, Amps, Volts, and the "S" rating on the LiPo. Can you help me out with this? Thanks.

From experience the ezrun motors are very good. They are fast cheap and easily programmable ( definitely worth getting the program card :) ). It's best to get one that ends in .5 as these are the true 540 / 1:10 sized motors although the other motor are all In a 540 sized case so not a huge problem if you get the wrong one. I use mine in both a associated b44 and a Schumacher mi3.5 and come top 5 in most races against main name brands :)

I run LiPo and brushed motors without any issues at all. In fact, the stock Tamiya silver can is still going after years of running LiPo batteries.

I guess it comes down to taking care of your stuff to make it last longer instead of beating on it just to have the latest and greatest trend item of the week :eek:

the ezrun 35amp or 60amp systems are great. plenty of power, without a high cost.
the 35amp system will work on a slash, but the 60amp system would be much more suited.
the 35amp costs $60 and i think the 60amp cost $80-$90(ebay) thats the ESC, a motor and the program card.
i have 2 of the 35amp systems, one is in my onroad car, and the other has been in an evader DT, a kyosho blizzard and even a losi strike.

RE: Good brushless motor for cheap?
as much as i love the 35amp ezrun i wouldn't put one in an offroader.
especially now that the 60's have come down so much it kind of makes the 35's obsolete.

for offroad you should always try to stay with the full 540 sized rotor. the motors ending in .5 are 540 rotors, motors without are 380 sized rotors and a bit too small for 1/10 off road.

oh and lipo is fine for brushed motors.

try a tacon motor and a sidewinder esc you can get a motor for 25.00 and a esc for 60.00 give or take the tacon 3650 motors are true 540 and i would put them up against some of the high dollar motors any day</p>

Just for the record, a Castle Sidewinder SCT is $100 shipped in a lot of places.

I bought a Ezrun 60A esc with a 4420kv motor with the program card for $75 for all 3 items this setup runs good.

RE: Good brushless motor for cheap?
i have the sct also its not bad at all for the price i got my motor for sale on ebay right now its just me but its just something about the tacon 4420 and the 2950 i like better maybe becauses i like 3s i plan on getting a mm pro and run 4s on the 2950 my 2950 on 3s @ 35mph i can gun it and flip the truck backwards

RE: Good brushless motor for cheap?
castle says you can use 3s on the sct combo. idk why you think one of those other motors will be better, they are 2 pole motors.

The title of this guys thread is Good brushless motor for cheap?
I agree the Castle Sidewinder SCT system is probadly a better bang for the buck, but maybe this guy is on a low budget. I am looking to get a  Castle Sidewinder SCT system for my Blitz to try it out. I bought the ezrun 60A esc with the 4420kv Tacon motor cause I have heard alot of good things about the two items. It was worth the $. I'm a basher and this setup went into my Losi Desert truck. It has more power than the Vxl3 setup that is in my other Losi desert truck. For a $25 motor its worth the money. </p>

RE: Good brushless motor for cheap?
Sidewinder SCT is only $25 more than the Tacon/EZrun 60a combo, is it not?

He said motor not a whole setup. Good brushless motor for cheap?
$100 is a good deal Thats the setup that I'm going to get for my Blitz. The only reason i bought the Ezrun 60A and the 4420kv Tacon motorset up is for a backyard basher plus i had store credit at hobbypartz.com. Wanted to see how good the products where. Thats if you read my previous statements.

RE: Good brushless motor for cheap?
im not a racer just a basher parking lot drag racing now on a track its a different story now as far as sct combo on 3s i did it this pass weekend with a 19/90 gear and the esc went up in flames[X(]didnt burn the truck up got it out in time this after running about 3 min i check the temp cool not even 60 degrees made a pass truck stopped then came smoke this is a slash 2wd the battery is a blue lipo 3s 5000mah 40c but now i got my tacon 2950kv in with my sidewinder sport on the same battery geared 30/86 this thing is fast with a ton of torque and stays cool im a budget guy to so thats why i buy the motors i buy the tacon is not the best motor out but for 25.00 the performance you get is great

RE: Good brushless motor for cheap?
I actually meant a whole setup. I showed him this and is convinced he can already hit 60 with his brushed slash 2wd running a lipo..... Dream or reality?
