did a search....
http://www.prop-shop.com/WCAREMOT.HTM
these guys have them...but they are WAY over priced, 31 bucks!

this may work though...
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXJ765&P=7

its not a mag mayhem...but you got silver can power! they are "600's" by plane specs, but are actually 550's. i don't know how they perform, but i plan to pick some up for my crawler project.

the specs of the two motors are similar, input voltage, 22x1, 550 can size. the great planes motor has 3 degree timing locked in...and you can't change brushes. if these don't work i still have a pair of hashed MM i can throw into the crawler if neeed be.

I got mine from Tower in May...So I am not sure. Just search all the online hobby shops. A little long and boring..but it is the best I can come up with.

27 turns is a stock wind. The mag mayhems are 22 turns.

Less turns = more power and torque and the mag mayhems are 550 cans which means the magnets are stronger which gives more torque.

So, the 27 turn won't be up to MM snuff.

ahh ok, i thought the more turns the motor had, the more toque it had no matter what. if that's the case then why are people running those 55turn lathe motors? or is that comparing apples to oranges?

hm, i didn't know guys were running 55t motors.

anyway, the Kyosho X-speed 550's (twinforce motors) are 27 turn stock motors. the reason they have such good performance is that they run doulbe their normal voltage when used with the EVX (made for 6-7 cells, but getting 12-14 cells).

i know that hobby people.net and stormerhobbies.com don't carry those motors. hobbypeople.net only carry kyosho kits and stormerhobbies.com doesn't even carry Kysho...thought that might help.
