I thought that about the reviews too. I have, however, seen some bad reviews of some of the cheap escs and other outrunners. Like you said though, it's not a real expensive motor so I'm willing to take a chance on it.

How are you doing your throttle?
I will probably use the same 2" aluminum sleeve I currently have on my Kollmorgen setup. That would put the no load top speed at 30+ mph at 24 volts (way faster than I need). I'm guessing with the amount of power that motor can put out it should be realistic to get close to that in the real world (or am I nuts?).
As for a throttle, I plan on using a cheap chinese hall throttle (using a 5v voltage regulator from the batteries) wired to a servo tester. I will also use a kill switch on this project for sure. I had a hall throttle stick wide open a while back.
Becareful increasing voltage on RC outrunners. Most of them do not tolerate it.
Anyway, you can always run a larger roller.
Matt, I think that motor can run a lot higher than 24 volts. I'm still a newbie when it comes to all the rc battery terms but the spec sheet for that motor shows the recommended batteries at 10 lipos. Wouldn't that be 42 volts?
Hobbycity doesn't show how many volts it can handle but it says this: "Max Power (W/60s): 2800" what does 60s mean?
Given the data they list do you think I would get decent power from that motor at 24 volts?
