RC4WD 540 Crawler Brushed Motor (55T)
I bought this as a bolt on modification for the Axial SCX10 Deadbolt to play around with different Turn ratings. The motor is nice and smooth with the stock Axial ESC. It's a good motor, especially for the price. This is a reflection of 55T motors in general, not necessarily this one in particular, but it is a bit slow. I'll likely go with maybe a 45T or 35T next because driving between zones at an Axial event (you can't carry your truck), I was able to walk faster than the truck would drive on 2S lipo. Also, when trying to power up a dirt hill, it didn't have enough speed to easily get the job done. In summary, good value motor if you are, in fact, looking for a 55T.
