As you may have read in my previous thread I've managed to cook my motor to over 250 degrees. Obviously I have 2 choices. Buy a rebuild kit, or buy a new motor. On the topic of a new motor I've been trying to make the correlation between kV and T. So far I've come up with this, lower kV means more turns and vice-versa, more kV=more torque, lower kV= less likely to overheat, and more poles= less power to meet the same rpm's as a motor with less poles. Please correct me if I'm wrong on any of this.
Now with all this research being done I still have no idea what or where to even begin. The only motor I've ever ran on my Rustler is the stock Velineon and the VXL-3s ESC. Right now I'm not looking for a new ESC because the VXL is working just fine for me and from what I've read on it is it can pretty much handle any motor I may be putting in my truck. My friend tells me I should just try to stick with the same kV because I know how to run it however I feel like I should expand my motor experiences.
With all this being said can anyone point me in the right direction, I'm looking for a motor that can handle anything I throw at it, mainly being ran on fine grit dirt with some hard spots and also in the grass. I'm slowly making the transition from bashing to oval track racing however I dont want to get to far away from my bashing roots which I know is only a setscrew-holding-a-pinion-gear away. I would like the motor to be able to run around the track for a race (periodically being checked for temps) on a 3s but I'm willing to go to a 2s with a higher C and mah rating. The only downfall of my search is I have something of a budget and I do understand you get what you pay for so I'd like to know more about the Turns/kV/battery type/if the VXL-3s can handle it/etc specs of my mystery motor.
Thank you for any opinions and help
