    Best type of brushless motor and gear setup for brushless

    I'm planning on buying a brushless setup this tax return season. I'm lookin for a brushless motor and gear setup that will work with said brushless motor. I want a setup where I can do nonstop wheelies and stand still backflips but still be able to have fun in the dirt and water. Any suggestions for brushless motors and gear setups? Thanks for your time.

    If your talking for a maxx you will have to upgrade your diffs for back flips
    Probably use the 2200 with the Mamba monster 2 esc

    im running a hobbywing 150amp sensored esc/1800kv sensored motor. that is only 4s on 20t pinion, stock spur. it does take 6s. so im thinking it would be easy to back flip it. the motor/esc is 189 on flebay. mine came with a program card to set up esc functions. plus i can do it online similer to castle. the esc is water resistant, but not waterproof. i will be using a dusty motors cover so im good to go. peace.
    I'm not krazy. My mother had me tested.

    the mamba monster 2200kv motor is NOT waterproof, castle creations only came out with a waterproof ESC, not a motor. mamba monster 2200kv will be out of the question if you want to play in the water.

    most brushless motors are waterproof or should i say wont get damaged when hitting water but if its freezing water and your motor is like running 140+ then you may have a problem. I know my motor i can get it wet which is a hobbywing xerun 2000kv motor, you just need to make sure the water is drained out before running again next time.

    I may just spend the extra money and get a mamba monster 2 combo. For a 2650kv motor with 4s on a mamba monster what gearing would I need?

    The 2650 motor is meant for a little lighter truck than the emaxx. I would go for the 2200 instead. The 2700 ezrun motor from hobbywing is good but you have to gear too far down and there for loss the benefit of the higher kV motor and its a max of 4s only when the 2200 is 6s which in turn will run cooler because of the lower kV.

    I also have the 120wp ESC from hobbywing in my emaxx and runs cool with my 2000kv motor 4s geared 21/65. Content with that for now.

    i run the 2650 in my Revo and it runs great in it. I actually prefer it over the 2200. it's got gobs of torque and plenty of speed on 4S. no issues with temps either. I like to run 62/22 for gearing. hope that helps!

    Is not the erevo lighter than the emaxx? I can gear way up than what I am at right 21/65 to like 24/65 or even 24/58 if it could fit and temps would be around 150-160 motor and ESC maybe 140 it runs way cool with the fan always on which is default on hobbywing.

    I'm probably going to get the mamba monster 2, 2200kv combo then. Cause I would get the hobbywing sc8 waterproof combo with a 2000kv but the only place it seems I can find them are on eBay and the sellers on eBay don't have consistent accurate photos of the waterproof ESC and they all ship from Hong Kong.

    your first setup is good. the second setup your talking about would be ok but you understand that is a high KV motor though with the right gearing.

    When it comes to simplicity of use, easy to find/buy, quick shipping and great customer support, its really hard to beat Castle equipment pound for pound. Especially when you can find sites when they are around $250 w Traxxas connectors already installed.

    Yeah gearing up helps just watch those temps. I have 21/65 but a 2000kv motor doesn't get hot for nonstop running 30-40 mins. More like 24/65 or 24/58 if it will fit might see temps of around 145-155 maybe. 70c is a lot of amps in those if there are rated right!

    26? I know pinions are easier to replace than spurs that's for sure. I have an assortment of spur gears now doubles on all lol. Need more pinions you should get a good top end with that pretty much near max have you thought about 24/65?
