Fastest Motor on 6s? - 11.05.2011, 11:43 AM

So after a little break from R/C to build a supercharged Mustang, I am back in the game and building another Revo....but I want to build it just for speed runs, seeing if I can top 90mph soooo.....what is the best/fastest motor to do this on 6s? From some of the reading I've been doing, it looks like a 1512 1.5d is about right, but I am open to anything.

Thanks in advance!

neu 1527 1D. Go big or go home. A 1512 is way too small to do speed runs reliably in a revo.

But I doubt you could get it to fit in a revo.

@Kevlar: 1512 1.5d is rated for 18V. If you're going to get a Neu motor specific for this application - I'd go with 1518 1.5d (2340kv).

I'm not leaning towards any brand in particular, I loved my pletty in the last revo, and found it to be pretty fast, cost doesnt matter just looking to buy one motor without regrets. Also, making something fit doesnt bother me either, part of my build plan is to make a carbon fiber motor mount, so I can change things up from there.

Hey there Kevlar,

I ( just ) managed to fit a 1521/1D in my E-Revo. That would definitely get you to 100mph if you take things one step at a time. If you've not too concerned with fitting into the standard revo chassis / layout then a 1527/1D would be ya baby. There are various other motors available that would work nicely for you, specifically from Tenshock and Leopard. TBH, I wouldn't bother looking any further than those three.

Shoot me a PM an' I'll try to help you avoid too many expensive mistakes.

Cheerz!

Unless you want to raise the motor up above the rear shocks - or make an extended chassis - you are somewhat limited on motor length. That's all I was saying.

I see what you were saying Brian, I was thinking of going over the shocks if needs be, but we'll see. I have all winter to plan and build this, won't be able to really test it until april or may...gotta love Canadian winters!

Rootz - PM on it's way!

Thanks again

a 1521 1D sounds like the ticket then. (for 6s) They no longer manufacture the 1518 brian was talking about.

Also, if money isn't an object why not step up to a mamba xl and go with 8s? 100mph would be easy with 8s. I run a 1521 with a mamba xl in my e-maxx, it is stupid powerful.

I didn't know that - CC still has them listed on their site, but I see that Neu no longer lists them on theirs.

How about a CC 1518 (still some floating around) on 8s?

Absolutely! I'd say the Mamba XL would be the one to go for. I started with a Mamba Monster and then a Phoenix HV110 as I was going High Voltage. The Phoenix didn't last long and Castle didn't have anything else so I went for MGM-Compro ( 125A / 45V ). MGM-Compro are excellent speedo's but the manuals take some getting used to. If you wanna look into that option, the TMM28026 or TMM16026 X-series would be the ones to look at. The bigger ones are HUGE!!

http://mgm-compro.com/index.php?cat=...llers-x-series

Fact is, the Mamba XL is so easy to set up, it's got such good data logging and CC's service is so good there's really not much point looking elsewhere. Course, that's just my opinion.

Oh yeah! Make sure you aren't tempted to get a used Mamba XL Version 1..

^^ That's the one I got my motivation from!

I really like Thunderpower lipos, seemed to pack a great punch...I wanted to keep it to 6s to be comparable to the above (Overrevo I think) and didn't want to do another big battery tray mod...but am open to anything.

Lot to think about, but for now I have to get ready for my Guy Fawkes party!

Remember remember the 5th of November....

Ah yeah Neil. But that's as fast as it went and Kevlar wants to go faster.

Didn't know they celebrated Guy Fawkes Night in Canada. Thought we were the only folks who burned people in effigy for the kids!

They say a good mechanic only needs 2 tools - WD40 & Duct tape. If it moves, and its not supposed to, duct tape. If it doesn't move, and its supposed to, WD40.

Are you planning to try your luck at the UK RC Speed Championships? First practice event will be in May 2012. Check out www.rossa.org.uk for details

Cheers
