500 Motor Query
« on: September 02, 2015, 12:13:32 PM »

I have picked up a pair of MFA Torpedo 500 motors at a good price for a project but I am now wondering if they suitable as all the reviews use them in conjunction with reduction gearing?


I just want to run two 500 sized motors in a 28" planing hull model, no gearing, direct drive


Will they be suitable??

30 should be fine...worse case scenario is you will have to water cool them
