I bought the 4300kv combo for my duratrax vendetta but it went somewhat bad. First the motor doesn't fit the mount (and all the holes are the same distance apart on the motor) and then I notice that the shaft is a little smaller than 2mm, the pinion was loose. Kind of a deception if you ask me. I still use the esc with no problem though. I have yet to find a car to fit the motor. Too bad.

Looks exactly like a Toro Micro system. Other than the motor mount hole position problem, I've had nothing but good experiences with mine. Maybe now the program card will be easier to find!

I have a toro kit in my micro RS4 and a trackstar kit waiting to go into my mini DT, and I can confirm they are functionally identical. Not a bad little kit for $35, and a heck or a lot faster than the sub-380 silvercan that come stock in the micro RS4. If you have a 1/18 car that is still running on stock brushed electronics, this is probably the best (cheap) way to go.

It's loose because your stock motor uses. 2.3mm shaft. Not 2mm. Duratrax also uses a metric 48p pinions and spur on their Minis which is a huge pita to find 2mm pinions for.

For $35 I may have to finally bring my Mini Quake into this century Haha

an easy fix for the slightly small shaft is too wrap a littl bit of aluminum foil around your shaft once or twice. that usually adds the little bit of extra size needed.

to Streetshaker : I hope you are right but I used a hobbywing ezrun 2030 motor (2mm shaft diameter on their site) on my vendetta and the pinion fitted perfectly. I must admit that I haven't measured the shaft so, I might well be wrong.

to STEEL-CITY-CRWL : thanks for the advice, I will test it as soon as I find a small car for the motor.
