    Can you fit a normal sidewinder 1/10 motor?

    Do the 1/10 motors fit perfect on the mounting plate?
    Please let me know as soon as possible.

    Sure you can make anything fit but to make a 1/10 fit would take a lot of work.

    Thanks!
    But lot of work you mean:
    cutting the plastic of the shock towers to make it fit because it's longer?
    Do I have to mod the stock motor mounting plate so the motor can mount?
    Thanks!

    My friend have a Mamab 5700 combo on his revo (mini revo)

    you have to mod the shock mount, and the motor mount, and drill new hole on the motor to mount it to the stock motor mount...

    It's not going to be just simple cutting.

    380 is what's in the Traxxas 540 is what I think you want to mount.

    Good luck.

    Why dont you mount it on the receiver side and mount the receiver where the VXL ESC used to be. It should fit right in.

    Hey Liqr,
    Well I'm talking about the motor here.
    Hey you have a NEU. Did you had to mod it to fit the mounting plate or did it fit right in?

    Lol, my bad, I misread it! I have the Neu 1112 and I had to shave about 2-3mm off the shock mount to get it to fit. No mod needed to the mounting plate but you might want to drill a hole through it to let the shaft go through. I just shortened my shaft instead of making a hole in the mounting plate. IMO the 540 motor will shred your plastic spur and eat up your drivetrain with its torque in no time. If people are, I dont know how, the magnets will be so strong it'll be like an automatic drag brake set to it. Imagine, with my 1112 I can barely get the car to roll when I push it. Let alone a 540 size motor. Those motors weigh 3-4 times as much as a 380 motor too. What you'll gain in torque you will lose from weight, not to mention shorter runtimes. I'd like to see it though =)

    Oh wow! Thanks liqrsicc!
    You fixed all my doubts!
    I wanted to check because one guy offered me his for a good price.
    But thanks I guess I'll keep the stock motor.

    The VXL is plenty enought if you are looking for power imo.

    The 5700 on 2S feel like the stock VXL on 3S power wise.

    The power difference isnt worthing the problems... the stock one is already uncontrollable on 3S and 4S

    Get a Neu 1110. Fits in perfect and is a 4-pole motor. A lot more power than stock and should keep a lot cooler too!

    I feel ya bro. This hobby is burning holes in my pockets. Luckily I recycle. After I get bored of something I clean it up and put it on eBay to fund my next project =)

    You might want to take a look at some of the Medusa Afterburner v2 motors too. They cost less than the Neu's.

    Same here.
    I only keep one RC for each hobby AKA Air, surface, water.
    As of now I have the mini slash that I love and a micro airplane 10" wingspan.
    I like cars better but airplanes are cheaper.
    I'll check those medusas out immediately.
    Thanks!
