Great Value Reedy 3300Kv Motor
 PostedAugust 11, 2010
I bought two brand new RTR vehicles with this combo in them....the SC10 Brushless short course truck and the B4.1 Brushless buggy.
The buggy is plenty fast even with 2S. If you really wanted to you could bum up a tooth or two on your pinion and increase your top end even more....but I don't think you'd need to unless you have a really big wide open track like and 1/8th scale buggy track......I even get wheelies sometimes on high bite surfaces...Run time on my 5000mah 40C packs are killer at minimum 35-40 minutes.
The short course truck is a bit of a different story. While there is plenty of low end torque and punch getting out of the corners there isn't nearly as much top end as there is with the buggy. I still like this motor and use it frequently on tighter track layouts. However if you have a track with big sweepers, long straights or tough to clear triples and quads.....you will definitely want more motor.....I use the 6100Kv reedy and just dial the ATV back on my radio.....overall these reedy motors are cheap, fast , look pretty good and get the job done well without breaking the bank.
