New stampede 4x4 setup

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Needed some advise on what motor I should get for my stampede 4x4 as I've been having a lot of heat issues withn the vxl.

I've already bought the hobbywing EZRUN SC8 120 amp esc and have narrowed it down to these motors

I'm just wondering what my speed estimates running from 2s-4s would be for these motors, if they would mount in with the stock motor mount, and how much trimming I would have to do on the chasiss as well as heat estimates.

Re: New stampede 4x4 setup

I've got a turnigy trackstar 2650 in mine with the same esc. Motor dimensions are 41x68 I believe... Great motor with good reviews, and around $50 at hobbyking. Speed wise I've got it geared conservatively right now because we still have snow on the ground and it sees a lot of time with the sand paws, so couldn't really tell you...yet. As far as chassis mods go, it took a bit of dremel work, I cut away some of the guard beside the center driveshaft, and had to dig out the chassis under the motor a bit. I also had to cut a hole in the chassis so I could get proper gear mesh with a 15 tooth pinion on it... You couldn't fit a longer motor in if you tried, so be aware of that. All in all, I am very happy with the combo. Hard bashing through snow I haven't seen temps above 40c. Also I used the stock motor mount plate on a king's headz mount.
