There aren't a lot of 2 pole motors out there to choose from really - 4 pole motors are pretty ideal for RC and are far more available....lots of Neu motor equivalents or knockoffs out there to...

Efficiency is low on the list of concerns - its all about rpms and power to get deep into the 100s(130-150mph).

More Poles results in more low-rpm torque, not more power. IMO, 2 poles are better for top speed aspirations, as they hold power higher into the rpms vs the higher pole motors, and have a broad...

I think a quality 2 pole motor is ideal for speed runs(Lehner, for instance). Sensors are nice for startup - not a factor for top speed.

IIRC, the 2 pole rpm limit is +/-150k.....not sure why that number comes to mind, but I don't think you will be ESC limited for rpms on a 2 pole motor(magnet limited, perhaps). :-)

As long as the motor wires are of the cuttable variety, then yes - I would cut the thinner wire(assuming both wires are of similar quality, strand count of course).

Cut the wire with the most resistance shortest - if the ESC wires are 12g and the motor wires are 10g, for example, make the ESC(thinner) wires shorter.

I doubt you're holding 3.7 volts under load unless its geared pretty conservative - gotta guess on tire ballooning as well(soft tires will grow more). For speed run applications, I set the voltage to...

Of course you could forego the transmission and install our Slipperential in its place - much more compact, lighter and has the benefits of a differential and a slipper. :-)

With 4s and the stock tranny and diffs, I think you could pretty easily get away with using one of the plastic sliders that go from diff to wheel.
