So after watching my buddy blow up his stock motor using 6s lipos on Saturday afternoon, I'm searching for a new setup for my Spartan. I've only run the stock batteries on mine, but will be receiving 2 3s Lipos tomorrow. I'm scared to run them after I saw my friends bind up after only 3 runs. And he never had it WOT, the pond was too small for that.
So I was looking at these 2 motors and was wondering what thoughts were from other members that have upgraded. I know the 4074 will spin more RPM's (39,737) vs the 4082 (35,840) on 6S Lipos. But the 4074 is $15 less on the site I'm looking at. Trying to understand why. And the 4074 is 8S capable whereas the 4082 is 6S max. But is the 4074 going to turn too many RPM's for the stock drive shaft? I wasn't planning on changing that. Or the stock prop right now.
Either I go with will be paired with a Seaking 180A ESC once I can find one in stock.
