    Sky RC Toro 8 2160kv or mamba monster 2200kv?

    I have narrowed it down to these 2 choices. But i havent seen anyone running the sky rc toro motor...

    The sky rc motor is quite abit cheaper then the mm motor and thats really the only reason i am considering it...

    So my question is. Does anyone know the sky rc motor? Is it durable? does it get hot when i run it on 3c lipo?
    and does it fit on my slash 4x4 platinum?

    Havent used my car in 8 weeks now after the original motor just stopped working after 2-3 packs. The company i bought it from says they are waiting for traxxas to ship them more motors but they have no idea when. So i have just decided to upgrade it instead.

    My advice is don't go cheap on electronics, castle has great customer service, and they have a flat repair fee out of warranty repair service, the same with traxxas, tekin or any other well known manufacturer.

    Imo, you get what you pay for. I have the MMM 2650 and my friend a Tenshock X802 for about 50% the price of my combo. It's too soon to have a general comparision, but from what I see, Tenshock as 10 times more cogging than mine.

    If you already have an esc that will run a 4-pole motor, take a look at a big leopard or get the castle 2400kv by itself for less than $100.

    Or get the motor you mention and review it for us.

    Thanks for the link, I just bought the 2150kv Leopard monster. Now all I have to do is install my radio, solder a traxxas connector on my new MMP and I'll be on the road.

    Yep I already placed the order. I looked for a coupon but I think you have to be a prior customer.

    I sure will. Hopefully I'll have it installed in the next couple weeks and can report back. Looks like they come from overseas.

    I run the Hobbywing 4274 esc motor combo in an my race truggy. The truck has so much power, will be great in the slash 4x4. The total combo was 208 when I bought it. can handle 4s lipo's great. I'd say that is the setup's sweet spot for the truggy. I'd bet that you could run 5s in a slash.
