This has probably been asked before but I couldn't find an answer when searching.
What is the max motor size that will fit an E-Revo? Will a 4282 fit or do I need to scale down a bit?
Asking as I can get a Leopard 4282 2000kV at a very good price.
Well it depends on how you define "fit." There was an ERBE that sold in the Marketplace with a 1717 installed. That is 50 x 85mm.
Alt-248 on the number pad = °
Should fit I have seen the 1717 1580kv on a revo......
Would you go flip my truck back over??
Also that kv motor will be great for 6s use.
35,000-45,000 max rpm will be a happy (<160*)f motor.
Its All relative to your perspective.
Well the Leopard fits. Just. A little mod to the shock mount and plenty of room.
Would there be a big power advantage with the Leopard 4282 2000 KV over the Leopard 4274 2000 KV?
Thinking about putting one in a Summit.
The 8 mm shorter 4274 would spare me cutting the shock mount as shown above...

Well let's put it this way the 2200Kv Mamba Monster setup will have slightly less torque than a comparable 2000Kv motor, the Mamba Monster already has enough torque to shred the driveline if not and justed properly. Not to mention keeping it right side up.
If it were me I would probably be inclined to go with the bigger motor but realistically speaking the smaller motor would be a better fit. Do what you want but keep in mind these trucks are being pushed to their limits.
