its the 8kv one, I have the 104kv er whatever the number is in my micro-t, however I am debating building another one with a 11.1v lipo and a 30a brushless esc and a 4kv brushless motor around the same size, I would just put the 11.1v on the one I have right now but I don't know if the losi system could take 11.1v?

yeah no luck there, I know theres one up on the bay right now but it would probably be too dear to pay just for parts.

It's been awhile since the last post here - but I needed a lower Unit for 1 of my boats - and called California ... told them I didn't need the whole motor - and they work'd with me and got me just the lower unit part!!!
Also - here's another "prop trick"
If the prop U wanna run drags your boat speed down ... try sticking a tooth pic in it - chuck it up in a drill and as U spin it - take a fine file and dress the DIAMETER down. A rule of thinb is - adjust speed with PITCH - and motor RPM'S with Diameter.
I reduced a 2 blade 15mm Dia - 1.0 pitch to ... 13mm Dia and it made a BIG Difference in motor RPM's and increased speed .....
Of course remember to sharpen the blade edge with fine sandpaper when your done .....

Any cheap & effective way to improve the running time? 5 minutes is too short for 1 charge.

Also care to recommend the parts to purchase?
