You didn't know that outrunner denotes that the outer part of the motor is "running"?
(As opposed to inrunner, where the rotor is inside.)

Got both 540 and stubby. They are both great motors. Just dislike the electronic noise outrunner motors put out. It earned my Mog the nickname "radio" lol.

I received my Stubby a few weeks ago - only waited 11 months!!! Otherwise, I am trying to settle on an ESC... JRH has recommended the Mamba Max but that thing is a GIANT! My gearing cannot be as low as I would like it to be which is another reason I waited so long for this particular motor. The size of the Tekin RS Pro is more usable for me but would it be a good companion to the Stubby inside a Class 1 scaler? Any other recommends or warnings against something? Thanks!

You lucky bastard!
I had to wait more than three times longer!

With the fan removed (as it's not needed for crawling) it isn't that big.

Got my stubby installed and did a first test drive on the kitchen floor last night.
* Power is at least in parity with my previous motor (a 17.5T TrackStar), and probably higher. (Need to run with larger pinions to find out. With the 14T pinion I mounted drifting in the kitchen was no problem.)
* Runs smoother than my previous motor.
* It gives off a quite loud high pitch chime when it runs.
* The sensor cable is more exposed than desirable.
