I want to modify my Sumo 1/24 truggy to brushless.
I already got 2.4GHz radio , receiver, 18Amp ESC and front steering servo compatible with that ESC.
I want to buy a brushless motor which will fit . I went to local GREAT HOBBIES store and they told me that I should find something on EBAY
On youtube there are few videos of modifications made but all I cold find is 5200kV motor which is approximatelly 30000rpm at 6v on AA batteries.
But I do not know which motor would fit that frame ????
Im pretty sure you will have to look for a brushless motor meant for a losi micro t. Those should be about the same size as what comes in the sumo.
As for KV, that im not so sure. I figure they used a pretty common 180 sized motor, and the gear box reduces the gearing alot. Id look for the lowest KV...as low kv=torque. Id try to find one in the sub 4000kv range.
That would be my best guess. Ive never heard of anyone making a sumo brushless.
I think if I were to upgrade a sumo, I would uprade the brushed ESC to one that could handle a lipo battery. A small 2s lipo battery would up the power of the stock motor, while also reducing the wait of the truck.
