Integy motors are popular for crawlers.

I upgrade my Wheely king crawler from the stock motor to one of these 55t. The torque increase it unbelievable. Obstacles that would require high amounts of throttle to get over, now can be tackled at very little throttle.

There are more than one. It just sounded like you were asking which one I was running in my WK.
Integy crawler motors go as low and 35t or as high as 85T.
