We suggest you start racing with a sensored motor. This has three wires (A,B,C) that connect to the Electronic Speed Controller (ESC) along with a fourth cable called the Sensor Cable.

Generally speaking, the lower the wind of the motor, the more aggressive the motor will be to drive. For new racers, we suggest a 10T motor. You will see experienced racers using motors ranging from 4.5T in 4WD and 5.5T in 2WD up to around 17.5T in both of these classes.

Average motor winds at SHRCCC vary from 6.5T in the dry, to 13.5T in the wet depending on the racer’s preference and buggy setup.
