    no no no the motor that it comes with is a 27 turn. At this time I dont have any money to get a 10 turn so for now I will only have the 27 turn to run. How is the Duratrax photon 20 turn motor that is in the Evader? Are they any good? Ive seen a evader run b4 and they are pretty fast, even stock, in a way.

    ok I found out the motor is a Epic I dont know how many turns im lookinfor it now! OK I changes the gear, smal spur big pinon, put a brand new 2400 and it is so fast! Ok check this out, the street that I live on is really busy and the speed limit is 35 mph on it my 4tec will keep up/beat most of the cars on the road! LMAO and that is with this motor, and I dont even know how many turns it has!

    Ok I was just running it and with the charger I have I charged the pack for 45 mins and I got 12 mins of run time. There was about 10 hour difference from charge to running. I know that the best time and performance for a pack is RIGHT AFTER you charge it so I cant wait to see what it does once its charged again ill post back what kinda run time I got then!

    If so thats really good ,those things have got to drain a battery faster than a ESC,I would think.
