I have used Tekin and love it as a racer but just the other day I threw a Castle Creations Mamba Max Pro Setup into my car and it hauled Ass. It was the same exact Kv as my Tekin motor but for some reason it went a lot faster and it had a lot more torque. If you want you can read up on the new Castle Creation Product upgrades that they did on all of their products.[URL="http://www.rcnightmare.com/forum/electric-rc-general-discussions/1601-castle-creations-product-makeover.html"]http://www.rcnightmare.com/forum/electric-rc-general-discussions/1601-castle-creations-product-makeover.html[/URL]
Unfortunately, my current replacement motor is a POS. and burnt out today! this is the second one i have had burn out on me.
Absolutely rediculus, especially when I wasn't going full throttle for more then 2 seconds at a time, not running drag brake either.
Tekin it is then, that's if it fits in my buggy :/
if not, ill have to severely gear down and buy the castle 2650
Was the new motor sensorless or sensored? Even if it was sensored the Mamba Max Pro comes setup with Smartsense which only uses the sensor during takeoff then uses sensorless while at speed. The sensorless setup allows for a higher top speed and more torque due to the speed control not having the read the position of the rotor and putting out a certain current for a give throttle input.

Also this means where ever you go you know you will have the power. I have seen tekin esc's go bad pretty often. Not saying there bad but i have a castle thats been ran all year long without one issue. Catle is good and i prefer it. But thets my prefrence and opinion. I know the smaller castle motors and esc's don't do as good but the monster does do its job.
Just to close this thread on a good note...
I have bought the Tekin 1900 buggy motor. All I can say, is... IT IS INSANE!
Check it out in my buggy build thread for my caster ex1.5.
You simply get what you pay for...
Thank you EVERYONE for your opinions. I was thankfully swayed the correct way by you great people in which i'm happiest with the motor I have!
