Default these motors any good?

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...Motor_w/sensor

it has good reviews on HK but im just wondering if anybody has them. im looking for a good motor to put in my 2 rustlers and my t4. i want 3 identical motors that are roughly equivelant to a 27turn but maybe a little quicker. i want to set all 3 trucks up to race on my track with a few friends. im looking for enough speed to clear some decent jumps but not soo much to where it is hard to control, especially for my friends who dont have a lot of rc experience. i have 2 mamba max esc's and i would probably pick up a cheap ezrun from hk for the third truck

for the price it a nice motor cant say how good it will run uncensored being a sensored motor on your mamba max unless there the pro. 15.00 a pop tracks could use them as give away for spec classes but im sure they would get the money out of you in registration fees [X(]

13.5t motor is equal(roughly) to a 19t brushed. A 17.5t would equal a 27t brushed motor. JFYI

I have the 3350 kv one.
I'm running it in a 1/10 himoto 4wd with an ezrun 60A esc. On 3s lipo it's around 160 F.
My final gear ratio is 11.2. Right now i'm running it 2WD and the motor starys really cool, I never eevn bothered to check the temps.

Since i'm running it with an unsensored esc i had to turn up the motor timing on the esc and i get no cogging.

Not exactly accurate. Got this from hobbycity website:

EMS Express : 3-4 Days transit time. (Incl. Tracking + Registration)
Air Parcel : 6-21 Days transit time.(Incl. Registration)
Air Mail : 6-39 Days transit time

I have used the air parcel a few times and it arrived in the US in 7 days (to my surprise).
The air mail is not recommended as it is not registered.
