    New Motor, which alternatives are there?

    Today i think my Motor is went down.
    The pionion gear is bucking if I push the throttle. So I think there is nothing more what I can do, or?

    Which motor alternatives are there?
    Which Mamba fits best for the mini Revo? What are things i`ve to look for?

    Whats about the gear "protection" if i use the mamba? What kind of "spacer" is it on the pic to mount the motor? Do i have to run my lipos in parallel?



    thank you in advance!

    Yes its not my Revo.
    Should be an example picture, because of the "spacer".
    Dunno the exact wording for this part, my technical english isnt that good :-D

    My Revo has some optional parts. Steel Pushrods, Rocker, GTR Shocks, RPM Parts and so on.

    Edit: This one is mine.



    Picture doesnt show the latest Parts.

    Do you off road a lot or more street driving? A fast small block like a neu would be the best setup, big block 1406 4600kv or 5700kv and a sv2 or Mamba Max pro depending on your budget

    Tembol motor mounts or Traxxas brushed motor mount will work

    thx for your fast reply.

    most of the time i go offroad. What is "neu"?

    i think the main advantage of these big blocks are more power?

    Imho that i dont need more power as the velineon has.

    Neu is one of the best built and powerful and expensive small block motors. I would pu a stock motor and upgrade to a better Esc like the castle sv2. Stock motor does run good!

    stock is i think a good motor , but like 50 already mention neu , castle are awesome

    depents on what you want and how fast and how crazy you wanna go

    but still -> a stock is insane too with a good esc and some lipo's

    Ok thx for the replies. I think i try it with a new velineon.

    Which advantages do the castle sv2 has? Am I able to run it with the velineon without any changes?

    it will run cooler than the stock esc and is strong enough for future motor upgrades!

    thx for the link, i had already seen it, but dont wanna spend that much money.

    today the new motor arrived.. but the problem isnt the motor, the new one shows the same problem.
    So i think its the ESC.

    On monday i will make an trip to my reseller and we will see. Hope he has a new one on stock, but dont think so.

    you can go to the web site we dare not talk about and get a good 60a even 120a esc for really cheap, never tired one myself, but i have read many threads of people using them and they say its a real good esc.. even heard claims its a castle clone with a different name on it.. you could get one real easy where you live.. they have a shipping place there.. you could get one any where from $30-$100 depending on what kind you get they even have an esc, motor combo for under $100 that i hear a lot of good things about.

    if you dont know the place i DONT speak of pm me
