This motor is GREAT !!! I replaced the original motor in my TB02 with this one and the difference is instantly noticed. The black color of the motor looks awesome on the car. It was a breeze to change and doesn't drain my battery too fast. You can use this motor with the TEU-101BK ESC without any problems of overheating. Give this motor a shot and you too will be surprised by the performance. Without the replaceable brushes - this motor still lasts forever with very little maintenance - perfect for the novice or expert.
