Default Motor Choice 45t or 55t??

I'm about to build my X-Crawler and wanted opinions on motors. I'm either going to go with a Single FXR or Sidewinder ESC and want the option on running on 3s Li-Po. Any idea the amp draw on either motor setup??

Thanks Chris

I'd head straight to a handwound 35t...especially if you're going to run the stock 8t pinion.

I used a set of these to replace the axle on our clod based super, and they're geared considerably lower than the clod.

I'm currently running a pair of Holmes Hobby Crawlmaster 1000kv brushless motors on them, each with their own 3s Lipo and Sidewinder ESC. In my opinion, they still need more wheel speed.

We're running a pair of 55t Integy's on 3s and it is quite slow. To do it again I'd run 45t minimum and definitely take a look at 35t if you're used to a crawler with wheelspeed.

I'm trying to stick with one ESC if I go with 35t's I'd need 2 or will a MM work with 2 35t's?

It'll be fine.

My buddy is running 2 HH 35t's on his Sidewinder with no heat or other issues.
