    Yea I love it. And this is the hobbywing one with the smooth case. It's got some weight to it. Heavier than my velenion motor.

    Well it seems ok. Took both apart and the off brand one has a smaller rotor. But I suppose that's to be expected with that style can. If I had the hobbywing brand of that style I could give a more definitive answer. But it crawls fine. Top speed maybe jogging pase. This might be because of the smaller rotor but it coughs a bit more in high. Seems faster on top end though. It does have that hand wound thread around the rotor. Just like my hobbywing one. I bet it's the same motor.

    Lol. Again thanks @00whynot for the combo. I did change my esc. Somehow it failed. But I've got a sc8 ezrun. And you've got a heavy rig too. Isn't that thing pushing 10lbs?

    What kind of speed in MPH do you think the secret weapon pushes your SCX10? And do you use some sort of online calculator?

    Not sure. On 2 cell lipo it's full out running speed. On 3 cell forget about trying to keep up. Gearing is 20/87 if I remember correctly

    I had found an online speed calculator for rc before. Using your motor gearing and tire size. It's somewhere here. His rig prob does about 12mph. I had it figured out before. Stock they do, what 8mph or so?.

    Ah I was thinking wraith again. Scx isn't near as fast stock. But I wasn't far off. And at times I can wheelie with my wraith. If the batt was in the stock location I couldn't keep it down.

    Unless you have a rig over 15lbs. A single is fine..... Now your making me wonder. Is their a dual motor plate for the rc4wd 2 speed for the wraith. Hmm.
