The KB-45's bolt spacing is 30mm, and it uses 4mm screws. Standard 540 motors (36mm diameter) use a 25mm or 1in. bolt spacing, and 3mm screws. In other words, the KB-45 will not fit without modifying the motor plate, but even then there probably isn't enough material on the mount to let the motor sit properly.

It will fit in an e revo, as the side mount has a 30mm hole spacing option that will fit a m4 thread bolt. Only issue is that the kb45 has a 6mm shaft, so pinion choice is limited. Mike may be able to get the mod1 pinions made with 6mm bore...

Kershaw designs has the 6mm bore pinions... in a few different tooth choices.

I have run the L can kb45 motors with good success. Not bad temps and they sure are powerful. They do draw some amps so good batteries are required.

Check here: http://www.traxxas.com/PDF-Library/5605_manual.pdf page 31

What voltage do you paln to run? I would say that a 6000mah 25c pack would be necessary for 4s.

For 5s and up a 5000mah 25c pack would be good. I would use enerland cell based packs, such as flightpower, polyquest, polyrc, thunderpower...

Stay away from maxamps, these motors will probably kill all but the 8000 packs..

www.rclipos.com

Anything from there that fits the required spec.

Only is being that the erevo has limited space in the battery trays:



5000mah 20-25c 3s lipo that will fit will work well.

There is a youtube video of someone testing the Kb45 with a prop (bench mounted) to simulate a load- it pulled 130amps:

I would aim for a battery that can handle at least 130amp cont....

I run the 8l kb45 in a 1/8 on road car, and it will push a pair of trakpower packs (4900mah 25c, 4s total) hard. You will run 6s, but you are also going to be spinning heavier tires, off road. These motors are great, and inexpensive, but will not like cheap bateries...

So long as they arent from maxamps- I would treat that 125amp rating as more like 100amps otherwise. Take a look at www.cheapbatterypacks.com for the rated and real-world specs of some similar lipos.
