Which Motor

I think my GR 60XL is starting to go out on my 70" Slick. What would be the best replacement.

If you have the version with a longer motor box I would get the Motrofly 4325-380. If you have the newer shorter motor box get the A50-12L. Both motors are great I just prefer the Hacker because I am a Hacker snob I guess

If you were happy with the power level of the GR60XL, the Rimfire 120 is a little more than that from what I've seen. Even more than both is the Motrolfly 4325-380, and more than that is probably the Hacker mentioned above. The hacker and motrolfly are both dependent on how they are propped but can make 2200-2500 watts. Which is over 100-110 amps, so size your system accordingly...

I think he has the 6s setup. Maybe.

If going for 8s, I'd take the A50-14L for quality and power.

Received my little Rimfire 0.55 today. The built quality is just ok for a $70.00 motor. My budget Infinite motor has better built quality (< $50.00), and Hacker seems to be the best. IMO

Wow...that Infinite motor looks exactly like a Scorpion. And the model number and specs on the side are the same as the Scorpion 4025-16.

Hhaha yeah, 4025-16 is 332 KV. I believe. THis one is 4025-320 KV (same weight).

6s-3800 25c, it spins 19x10 prop at ~ 60A (slightly warm).
