  • Red or blue motors

    I have seen advice giveing in theese forums dont buy blue motors, should the question be what tank do you have?
    and whats right advice for that person, given that fact that you have a very recent tank that heng long dont suggests the red motors as a hop up they suggest blue motors in mine wich is the hop up i have done. Would you not choose this path choosen by manufacturer perhaps for best result.
    or should go a different way. What do we all think?

    It's depend on your tank.Almost modern tank have enough space for red or blue motor.But WW 2 tank have not, only blue can fit.Red has more torque and earn energy too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I67_hbvZe1Y

      Have you tried the blue before rdex2 becuse blue is very quick for a modern main battle tank and possibly updated choice for henglong.

        For new tankers, just as with jets and warbirds, I typically recommend trying the stock configuration first before spending money on hop ups. Hop ups can add up quickly!

        We'll be growing our list of upgrade components over the next several shipments as feedback grows. I like the red motors for metal tracked tanks that can fit the red motors. But please note that we've found a couple counterfeit red and blue motor manufacturers, so always ensure you're buying from a reputable source. The actual quality and performance can vary widely based on our tests.

        Also, we have learned that some systems such as the Ultimate (Heng Long's blue motor and bearing open gearbox combo) will likely be discontinued soon in lieu of a new option.

          Have you tried the red motors in the new version 6.0 modern tanks matched with the stock 3:1 steel gearboxes? If you had, you would never go back to blue motors.

          HL does not recommend the red 390s for use in their plastic gearboxes or with plastic tracks, but has never said not to use them with their steel gearboxes and in fact offers the red 390 motors paired with their Ultimate steel gearboxes. I have run every combination of 380 and 390 motors offered by HL and Taigen in modern tanks. By far the red 390s especially in combination with the new 6.0 system outperforms the blue 380 motors in all parameters slow,fast,climbing and turns.

          The blue 380s are best left to those tanks that do not have the space between their gearboxes to fit the red 390 motors which are only a few.

            Of Course I have try several motor but red motor has more power than blue. Especially run on grass. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQGyABllS3Y
            And blue motor test in KV 1 metal track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZv9_TAEtkg

                    Then do yourself a favor and swap in the red motors. You will never look back again at the blue motors once you do. Every aspect of performance WILL improve and your Abrams will start to become the off road monster it has the potential to be. An example is scale top end speed. Given the same battery you should see at least a 25-30% increase in speed over the blue motors and even more if you bump up the voltage to 8.4 - 9.6. (The 6.0 system is rated up to 12volts)


                    The Ultimate you are showing is only one of the motor options and as Alpha has pointed out it is being discontinued. It is also a little slower (slightly lower gear ratio) speed wish then the new 6.0 stock gearboxes and it is more noisy because of the bearings. The gears in the new steel 6.0 stock gearboxes are actually stronger then the Ultimates old style black steel gears. The Ultimate gearboxes are about a generation behind and were at that time a worth while investment over the older 5.2/5.3 optional black steel gearboxes in durability. Not so today with the new 6.0 steel.
