Good job. Love all your Kyosho's. Just got my first Kyosho - a Scorpion 2014. Any recommendations for a motor. Not interested in fast, just something that'll be torque'y enough for off-road whilst maintaining the vintage feel. Would love to put a Le Mans in there, but stupid money. Quite like the Tamiya Dirt Tuned?

Will recommend between 17.5 - 19.5 will made the model more realistic when running it. And Kyosho Leman 240 motor will be nice, but not the Leman esc, as the esc don’t come with fan, seem too hot with the present battery capacity.
