Default motor

i just got my Tc4 the other day & been practicing the drifting. but it doesnt really seem to have that much power to hold it. it has a Pro Tweaked brushed motor. i think is a 27T (not sure) not sure on what he has for the pinion gear but it also has the stock spur. so i was planning on getting a brushless setup. what would be a good 1 to go with that isnt going to be to expensive. & what size pinion & spur should i go with.

mamba max is a excellent choice if you are going to drift. 4600 and 5700 are perfect for drifting you can even use 3cell lipo batterries for extreme speeds, you wont need to change your gear ratio, they will have enough power to break the drift wheels

if you are getting into drifting for the first time, you should buy a system with a warranty. cheap is cheap. drifting requires high speeds and aceleration cheaper brands burnm out faster and yes its good for tt-01

thats what i was thinking. i had a castle in my mini t. i want it to be able to go fast if i want. so id only have to change the wheels over. but i also want something thats going to have the power to break the wheels free when i want it to. think im going with the castle 5700. & i like having a name brand that i can trust. not into getting the cheaper stuff. you get what you pay for.
