Surpass Hobby Waterproof F540 V2 Sensorless Brushless Motor with 60A ESC for 1/10 RC Vehicles
Questions and Answers
does it require soldering?
can it take 3s?
my boy runs it on 2s and 3s motor does get hot on 3s after about 10mins on 2s it gets hot as well but you do get a few more mins of run time before it hot. ESC however stays pretty cool no matter what battery we run.

Fitted to an FTX Banzai. The motor is exactly the same size as stock brushed unit, so this was a direct swap out. Pinion gear attached nicely. The ESC is quite a bit bigger than the stock one, but you can still install it in the same place, I ended up packing out the ESC location to raise the platform that the new ESC sits on with double sided gel tape. The performance gains for what you pay are incredible, the accelerate and torque are fantastic using 2c lipo. With the stock electronics I needed to fit the drift tyres to achieve a power slide, but even with sticky road tyres you can doughnut or power slide to your heart's content. I may need to stock up on more tyres though 😜. It's easy to see why this ESC and motor combo is the no.1 RC upgrade on BG. Delivery was very quick too.

dam fast motor, fitted into wltoys 124019 runs well on 2s and is insane on 3s. i fitted without changing any gearing - negative its not branded surpass but i think i can forgive it for the price and performance

Great Motor and ESC for the price! I put this crazy setup in a Carisma Range Rover and works well, it can crawl too so it works ideally for what I am using it for, Goes very fast aswell, Recommend it!

Rocking brushless setup. Smooth no cogging and a bunch of torque and horsepower. Midlevel rc car or truck not to exceed 1/10 th scale should be perfect. All waterproof and reliable. Totally a very wise purchase for a kickin' good time.

excellent combo of motor and esc for a low price, the truth the best option I found for that price and it is of excellent quality, it is already the second one I buy and I have not had any faults, Use it on a 12428 wltoys and it works beautifully. late in arriving but everything in excellent condition and condition Greetings from sinaloa, mexico

run really smooth. replaced my replacement motor (a smaller brushless) in my 144001. it’s running so much smoother with this setup. is a perfect fit with the stock gearing and motor mount.

Installed on a 35yr old Team Associated RC10 using Nimh 6-cell battery packs and works great. The ESC is small but not tiny, and the motor has a heavy solid feel. Wiring terminations are all black with black shrink tube which left me guessing and playing with matching the phases. FYI I also bought a lower kV motor (orange in photos) to ease this RC car into brushless, plus it looks great. I will be adding colored shrink tube for easier identification. Lower electrical resistance than a brushed setup so run times were longer and the car rolled freely down my driveway - brushed setup won't roll that easily. Plenty of power for the RC10 buggy and motor was not hot to touch after 2 battery packs of use. The fan on the ESC can be heard when standing next to the RC car, however this is my first brushless setup so I have nothing to compare it to. Overall I am very pleased at the performance for the price and have suggested it to my friends with similar cars.

if you're not sure if you should buy this kit, go for it! I installed this in my 2wd stampede today and it has much more power than the 15 turn I was running. quality and craftsmanship are top notch. very smooth install went together very easy. I suggest buying one of the pinion gear packs on here to get the most out of this kit. I bought a pack that has gears from 18 tooth to 28 tooth. the 18 is great for wheelies and instant torque, I put the 26t in for top speed runs and man it's fast. this is definitely the motor and esc your car or truck has been waiting for, you will not regret it!
