    castle neu 1110 or 1112 with nimh batteries

    Can these batteries be used on these motors or must atleast a 2 cell lipo be used.

    You wont be able to feed either of those motors with nimh packs, they are too amp hungry.

    Before changing the electronics out, try using lipo packs. 2s in parallel is a great way of having decent power and long run time.

    Well that clears up the main question of this thread

    Which esc are you using? The stock esc can handle delivering the required amps for those two motors.

    For a bit of info, I currently have a castle MMP and have a 1110/1Y on the way. I know a few others have the same set up.

    I don't think the stock ESC can handle those motors. Maybe you just forgot "n't" there.

    Lol. Just a little. I'm glad I paid around 1/3 of that price and have close to 50% more power.

    I'm convinced that with a Neu you have a top quality motor. For an according price.

    What kind of driving do you do? I use my merv on everything from pavement to sand to grass, so i went with the middle ground 4550kv, should have more torque than my sold castle 5700kv, but since im not so much for top speed i dont mind the loss in kv.

    When my Merv was still a Merv (it's a Summit now), I drove it on several types of surface, but mostly pavement.
    I used a 4600Kv Castle motor for quite a while, but since I tried my Leopard motor in my Mustang (4420Kv, also 28mm can, sadly a 4mm shaft), I'm very happy with it.
    I have looked at the Neu motors a lot, but the prices are above what I find acceptable. Not saying there are not worth it, but just not for me.

    For that purpose, a smaller can and less weight are steps in the right direction.
