There are a couple places out there making 1/18 brushless setups. However, there aren't any making 1/18 Sensored brushless setups. Sensored setups are the best for crawling.

I have used the 1/18 castle setup in a skate park bashing truck and I loved it Lol.

Hobby wing makes a couple 1/18 scale sensored brushless motors. And I agree for crawling IMO stay brushed or sensored brushless.

So glad I got the Novak 380 system when I did... the small motor options are so limited now days.

I looked through Hobbywings website and couldn't find any sensored brushless setups in the 1/18 size.

Every now and than you'll find a Novak Mongoose system. Just gotta put a feeler out for the motor. I plan on using a Mamba Micro X on my Novak 380.

The castle mamba micro x can run sensored with their optional wiring harness.

The ESC can run a sensored motor, but castle does not make a 380 sensored motor. I have used the ESC on a few trucks and it works great.

There was an outfit out of China called Anderson Racing that also made a 380 can brushless sensored motor, but can't find the link anymore, so I guess they are gone now too. I tried contacting them a few times, no response, no surprise.

On the up side, I did find these:
Carisma Racing 4600KV Sensored Brushless Motor | Products - Carisma Radio Control Model
Carisma Racing 5350KV Sensored Brushless Motor | Products - Carisma Radio Control Model

They are also out of China, just sayin'.

Keep us posted!
Any measurements / dimensions are appreciated, as Hobbyking only announces the shaft diameter (3.16mm).

Itís around 43mm long and fits a pro chassis well.
Itís a bit heavier than a stock motor but as soon as I get a pinion sorted Iíll see how it drives, the pinion I ordered has a stepped centre hole so it doesnít fit, ill probably just drill it out.

Thanks for the pics!
Let us know how you like it.

By the way, nice chassis, but your spur gear looks a bit worn

Cheers, yeah the spur gear is a mess, something got caught up in the drive shaft and I didnít notice until it was too late.

Been trying to find a new one for a while but mrc parts in the UK are hard to source so I might have to mod a different one to fit.
