Default Newbie - motor question

Just bought my self a Twin Hammers kit. I'm sucker for good offers, and the buy was not planned.

Since this was a spontanious buy, there's no money for electronics. I've got an esc and and a new 20t axial motor from a wraith lying around. Would that be suitable for the twin hammer?

I run a 20T motor but on 3S. The Axial 20T won't last long on 3S. My RTR twin hammers came with a 15T I think. But it will definitely work. As long as you stay 2S.

If all you plan to do is crawling, the 20-turn will be fine. If you are looking for speed I think you will be disappointed. I am running a 12-turn Losi brushed motor and it offers good speed at a budget price. The Traxxas 12-turn 550 brushed motor would also be a good candidate and would probably hold up better if you plan to run 3S.

Good score, run the electronics you have!

X2, go 3s with Titan 550 motor and Hobbywing WP1060 or step up to WP1080.
