Im new to the sport I have had my slash for a little over a month. I love it, it's a ton of fun to just bash, and practive days at the track are insane. After getting mine I got my dad into the addiction, He bought his slash 4x4 from Craigslist. It is essentialy stock, except it came hobby wing esc and tacon 4300kv. Mostly he runs on 2s, yesterday he decided he would take it out on the track with my 3s. After about 15 minutes he came in and fried his motor. he wasn't able to touch it for a while. Now to my question looking to get him a new motor he is on a super tight budget. I know a four pole motor is better that a two pole and that is about the extent of my motor knowledge. KV means high rpms, so does that mean if you want to run to your should run 3200-5700kv? and if you like 3s then you should be around 2200-2400kv? what is the difference between sensorred and sensorless? when a motor says it is a 6 turn, is that the amount of times the magnet turns? and by that logic at 12.5 turn motor would be better.
I have been looking at another tacon motor with a different kv, or a leopard?
Thanks in advanced for all the info, you guys are always really helpfull.
Love that Slash
