View Full Version : New motor for MQ or mod H8

found a new brushed motor I like for the MQ or MOD H8.
can is roughly the same size as a 400 but its aslong as a 540. uses a 540 armature and brushes. It doesn't have the rpm that a regular 400 has but you can put a 26t pinion on it and it will still wheelie. I put one in my MQ and run a 19t pinion. It wheelies just as bad as my 540 quake did but is only about 5mph faster that the regular 4.8 400. Just thought I would share this incase anyone runs their half eight with the motor in the back. If you do, pick this motor up, its cheap, veeeeeeery powerfull, and will make your half8 into a rocket.

the best motor for the half8 is the kontronik 480-42 installed in the back.easy to flip around and then you can use a long pack jumps better to.

I don't want brushless. I am looking for the best BRUSHED motor.
