5.0 out of 5 stars Great little motor
What can I say, burned out another stock traxxas motor and ordered this lil guy as a replacement. I believe this motor to be an UPGRADE!! Put the motor on and broke it in at half throttle for 25 mins, motor never even got warm!! First run was in a parking lot and it was fast, smooth and reliable. Great motor, great product.......now lets just see how it holds up over...

3.0 out of 5 stars i had one of these
I got one of these motors to upgrade from my 20t motor in my electrix ruckus, the day i put it in i burnt it up, it probably didn't help.that i had a 5000mah 2 cell 7.4v sky lipo powering it, motor surely did scream in that truck but was short lived after an hour of straight running it with the lipo, probably should have kept an eye on the heat of the motor... oh well,...

Hubby LOVE his new HPI Racing 1146 Firebolt 15t Motor (540 Type)! He said to be careful though. It really increases the speed of his RC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes much more abuse than stock Titan 12t 550 Motor, September 26, 2012

This review is from: HPI Racing 1146 Firebolt 15t Motor (540 Type) (Toy)
I bought a Traxxas Stampede for my son for his birthday. Motor burnt up 4 times in 1 week. Even though Hobby Shop was replacing for free it was burning $20 in gas to drive down there each time. They recommended different ways to break in motor but motors continued to fail. Researched online and found practically nobody likes the Titan 12t Motor and had similar problems. I ordered 2 of the HPI 15t Motors to see if I could find a cheaper, stronger alternative till I upgrade to brushless. The HPI motor I installed I didn't even break in. Wanted to see what kind of beating the motor could take. I ran this motor hard and had no problems. Decided to keep pushing motor harder and harder checking temps. 1 Day I ran the motor up to 230degrees and just new the motor was done. Smoke was coming out. Next day put it back on the street and what do you know, it still worked for a few days till it finally blew. I recommend this motor highly if you want a more reliable brushed motor for Traxxas vehicles. The Titan 12t could barely handle 140degrees. Not recommending you run the HPI to 230degrees but this motor is way more forgiving then the stock Titan 12t Crap!

This was an adequate backup motor for my Rustler. It performed basically the same as the stock Titan 12t motor Traxxas includes with their economy kits.

bought this for my traxxas bandit and it was even better then the stock 12T motor! could even pop some wheelies! Also you will need to break it in to get the max amount of speed/torque.

I put this thing on and just let it rip, it is much faster and has better torqe than the stock titan motor, also it is signifigantly quieter than the stock motor

5.0 out of 5 stars Great motor, July 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: HPI Racing 1146 Firebolt 15t Motor (540 Type) (Toy)
Got a brushed traxxas and replaced the titan 12t with this one. Bought 3 of these. 2 to use in a stampede 2wd and a slash 2wd and one extra. It's been 6 months and I still haven't had to use the spare motor. Broke one in with water and didn't break one in at all. Thought I'd see how it lasted with no break in. 6 months and still going strong. If you got kids these are a great motor. Enough power and speed without being too fast or powerfull.

Good motor, shipper had it here quick and my kids RC car was up and running in no time. Doesn't come with screws, so hang onto the ones from your previous motor.
