Any of the motors designed for a 1:10RC car should do


Depending on the battery and how much power you want

I would suggest either an unsensored 22.5 or 17.5T to replace a std 540 on 7.4v Lipo
As for the ESC I would go for a Helicopter ESC as most of these these offer a soft start option

500/600 motors tend to be around 2-2300kv.

So if you just want a brushless replacement rather than more performance, these should easily do the job-

They have the 3.17mm shaft sizes, but are lighter and smaller than 500 size motors, and a third of the price.

Something like this to power it-
