Default NEU 1110/1y vs Castle motors 1/16 E Revo?

Hey everyone!

Can anyone recommend the NEU 1110/1Y vs the Castle Creations motors? For an ESC I am going with either the Mamba Max Pro or Mamba X.

The problem with the stock 380 is that it gets very hot, especially while using Lipo batteries. And I wanted to run a single 3s battery for good speed and torque. I have been reading a lot on the forums about these motors but these are posts from years ago.

I was hoping somebody could chime in and inform me of what is the current "best of the best" setup scenario in terms of a motor/ESC combo to date. Technology always gets better over time and from reading old posts it seems like the Castle motors or NEU motors were king.

I cant comment on those motors as I have not used them .
You are right , the stock motor does run a bit hot . A fan or heat sink will help a little .
Cutting out the windscreen and fitting mesh will help airflow over the motor .
One of the biggest problems with these is the lack of space to fit bigger / better ESC .
The Mamba X is way too big . The Mamba Max I have seen fitted but it sticks out from the chassis . Also seen it fitted inside the battery tray but you need to cut a big square hole for the fan to fit . You also lose a battery tray if you do it this way .
Hope this helps .

I found a wonderful combo on the cheap for my MERV(big block) that actually performs well. A GoolRC motor from amazon for $20USD and a spare SW3 SCT esc. I had to give up 1 battery bay to the esc but it handles 3s real well.

The motor pictured:

EDIT: I still haven't had to shim the diffs yet but it does have the bulkhead with the cross screw.
