    Traxxas/Castle 2400 Motor

    Does this motor have the 4mm bullet connectors on it? Also, when did they release the black one?




    TIA

    They come with 3.5mm bullets. Reason I know this is the CC/ HPI Vektor 4000kv has 4.0mm and I had to upgrade them on the ESC side to 4.0mm to fit. Not sure why they downgraded them like that to 3.5mm vs the Castle Creations version MMP and 2400kv motors that come with 4.0mm. If I remember correctly they run 13awg wire.

    Hope this helps man.

    It's really not hard to solder new bullet connectors on. I did my first job last night and actually found it much easier to do than traxxas connectors. Plus you can pick up a set of 3 geniune Castle 4.0mm bullets for <$5.00

    Just thought i'd pass that along.

    Yep, I know. However, I'm not equipped to solder ones on right now which means I'd have to take it to the hobby store and have them do it. Makes me feel incapable.

    Actually might still get it because I have seen none other like it on ebay. Does anyone else have a black one?

    I just purchased another ET-3S & my first Traxxas branded castle 2400kv motor. This puppy will be going in my 1/10 Rally 4WD when they both arrive. Ill prolly move them to 4.0mm bullets.

    Wish I was close to ya I'd solder them for ya.

    I think these motors could use a bigger gauge wire....after a few hard runs my wires(running under the car) get pretty warm....
