    Welcome to the forums!

    I think that motor should work. Just might get hot. What are you going to use it for? What batteries?

    Don't take my word for it though. Lol.

    Thanks for the welcome, going to be using mainly for bashing around the neighborhood, maybe occasional racing. Using 2c lipo, and have a 3c that seems to make this truck scream, but i love speed!!

    Yeah with 3s that motor will get some really good speed. I think it will have a little less torque then the stock motor but a higher speed.

    I've also got a castle 1410 3800kv 4 pole motor, would that have more or less heat build up?

    I would say less heat. Slightly more torque. But nothing noticeable. 4 pole is better though.
