    I do not think you could get that to fit in a Summit without major modifications. That thing is 4.4 inches long, and has an 8mm shaft! Its a big sucker.

    It wont fit in a million years, not even with a custom motor mount- its nearly twice the size of the 1515 motors and those are more than capable of destroying your diffs; they put out 5HP peak, the 2028 puts out closer to 10HP peak.

    Everything about that motor makes it completely unsuitable for 1/10-1/8 rc use, its purely for 1/5 scale r/cs only- dont forget you need the MMMXL esc and 8s lipo; $600 for esc and motor.

    You can go back to day dreaming now

    Plus, it would be better to put it in an e-revo, or something rather a summit, since it's (blah) sensorless. Now, if it had sensors for buttery smooth low-throttle operation, *I'd* be tempted. I guess I gotta get a Summit first, though!

    mmm maybe a nice (read : expensive) project to build a custom summit with such a motor in each wheel, very low COG and endless torque... mmmm... :-P

    Just to hammer my previous point home:



    Thats a 1515 ( MMM ) motor vs the 2028. Still think it'll fit a summit or erevo?

    Yeah, my mental jaw dropped, and it made me exhale through my nose. Now that I wrote that, it sounds kind of gross.

    Now what we need is a pic of a lineup from standard 540 size, to the 1/8 scale motor, to the 1/5 scale. I want to see how amazingly huge it is next to my rustler's motor.

    The motor, esc and conversion kit for the baja5b will be appearing on the castle website any time soon- should be in the shops within the next few weeks. As for more size comparisons:



    Thats a 1512, 1717 & 2025 ( pre-production 2028 I think, dont quote me on that though ).

    A 540 motor is 36mm x 50mm long, 1512 is 42mm x 67.5mm, 1717 is 50mm x 85mm, 2028 is 57mm x 113.2mm. So, a 540 motor is about 3/4 the length of the 1512 and half a centimeter smaller in diameter ( feel free to draw your own scale picture )

    AOD - I need your contacts. Your info/pics seems to come light years ahead of the free world.
