    Which Motor?

    I was wondering which of these motors would be good for the MERV. I am not interested in going big block. But When my mervs come I figure i would switch the motor. Thanks D

    Those motors have a way too high Kv value.
    Nobody is born with experience.

    The stock motor is pretty stout and hard to beat...
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Hi Daholla72,

    rather than changing the stock motor out, which is actually a very solid piece, you could put that money into a better ESC. the VXL-3m stock esc restricts the motor, you would well to spend the $60 on a castle creations sidewinder v3 rather than a new motor.
