The HobbyStar 540 4-pole brushless, sensored crawler motor is an ultra-smooth powerplant for upgrading your crawler to brushless power.  A beautifully machined T6 billet-aluminum housing contains a 4-pole, 12-slot high-torque rotor spinning on High-RPM ABEC5 oversized bearings for a powerful, reliable motor choice for your 1/10 scale vehicle. 


NOTE: Max LiPo cells listed are a guideline for what voltage can be safely run on this motor, but it is still critical to monitor temps and adjust gearing accordingly to keep motor temps under 170F.  Any motor can overheat to the point of failure even when running less than the maximum rated voltage if it is over-geared.  Must adhere to ESC voltage/KV limits as well.

Awesome upgradeReview by Dan
I purchased this crawler 2400kv motor for my axial wraith and what a difference. It’s got the punch you need to get up those hard sections of rocks yet also will crawl as slow as you need. My buddies that spent way more on there castle creations stuff are a little sad they didn’t listen to me. (Posted on 11/7/2020)

If not in a very heavy vehicle this is a great option:
