I was wondering what the motor size is for the F1 car. I have a Traxxas Esc and 550 size 12t motor. Will they work with the F1 car?

Thanks~TheBlueMelon

I just got a traxxas esc and motor setup in mine. I\’m not sure which motor it is. It was one a friend of mine had laying around. I think it\’s the stock motor from a traxxas slash 4×4. To get it to fit I had to trim one of the rear axle carrier because the motor was too long to fit without it. I also had to do some trimming on the motor cover. I did both of the with dremel tool. Also had to ditch the rear cover on the motor.
