Just won this auction [ebay:2m2w90la]130469369066[/ebay:2m2w90la] , but the motor says 9600kv seem high to put in an MRC?? What do you all normally run in yours?

Yes, the KV rating is a bit high for a rock crawler. Sensored brushless systems are better in rock crawlers, unsensored tend to cog at low RPM's. We used to run 1100 KV motors in our 2.2's back in the day. I guess you could run a high KV motor but it would fly and I would be concered with ripping the diffs/trans apart

Some good news is that you can use that ESC with brushed motors also, I ran/run the SideWinder micro in mine with a brushed motor (Reedy Stump Puller 19T) plenty of wheel speed and power. You can set brushed or brushless manually, but if you have or know someone with a Castle Link, it is a snap, you can also update the firmware and set the drag brake to crawler profiles.
