Re: motor swap???

This reply may be a bit old

I don't have alot of experience with a variety of motors but I do know that the Komodo Dragon 19 turn worked awesome on my Rustler. I had to ship in my Mamba esc which meant I had no brushless but I still had my old xl5 esc. The guys at Great Hobbies recommended the Komodo motor to run on my xl5.

The Komodo definitely releaved the pain of waiting for my mamba to return without being stuck back at stock speeds. I ran it with a 7.4 5000mah 25c (50c burst) lipo with no trouble and a butload of speed. Of course I had to keep an eye on the clock so I didn't toast my battery. We still need to try the 9.9v a123 pack

Unfortunetly I've kinda killed it by running it in an area that had crazy amounts of dust. 2 minutes of riding and you were chocking on a fog of finely ground dead leaves. Unaware of a rock stuck silently in the motor I ran the kamodo until it smoked and left it smoking long after being shut off. Later I ran it again and the rock became wedged and stopped the motor all together. Finally noticing the rock, I took the motor apart removed it and I was back in action. The only down side is that after all that damage it now runs at the painfull stock 12 turn titan speeds. I can't complain, that's one tough bad ass motor.

Get the Komodo Dragon Pro. It's got a couple upgraded parts but most importantly it's been tuned, or should I say, pre broken in. You'll spend more hastle and money tuning than the cost difference between the standard and the pro.

Hope this reply even matters anymore.

PS. Don't forget the leads
