Cool !! I love those china's buggy motors!!!  I got myself 4 of them for only $60 USD .. and the performance is good enough where you can use your Lego battery box!!!  Check out how fast my mini truck with live axle suspension and the China's Monster motor!!

That's cool ! Is this with regular PF battery box and V1 IR receiver ?

I used to think that the buggy motor (or the clone monster motor) would need a driver with higher current capacity.

It will be great if the monster motor works like this with regular Lego PF.

@iLego The receiver is from China and its a clone of the IR ver1 by Lego and the clone ($10 USD with joystick) sports a wifi 2.4ghz with long range and the power is almost the equivalent to ver2 IR from Lego or maybe even better is the AA battery box is from Lego with a mix of rechargeable (on your own risk)  Nizn 1.8 volts AA batteries that punch fast and 1.5 volts Lithium AA batteries for endurance.  The 1.8 volts x 6 = 10.8volts is close to buwizz 11.1 volts so you'll get awesome performance...

Thanks for the info. I am tempted to try this out.

How did you get the receivers to work? I have 2 of the 2.4 ghz & they dont seem to work with the Lego controller. But I haven't tried very hard though

I tested it with lego original batery box + ir receiver v1 and with buwizz.

with buwizz on ludacrious the protection will kick in sometimes

@Tazmancrash When you buy the receiver , you have to buy the joystick that comes with it. The issue is there are a few China businesses that use their own 2.4ghz protocol and its not compatable to Lego's  or even Lepin own 2.4ghz protocol. So its best when you purchase a receiver and purchase the joystick at the same time or you will run into problems.. The Lego battery AA case always worked on any China's motors and even Cada (china) latest offerings are for Cada receivers and controllers only for one example so just stay away from them!! ..  I haven't tested a Lego IR ver1 receiver with the monster motor but the monster motor do run very good if you just hooked up to the Lego battery case only.. I would recommend a good AA batteries like I have mentioned before to get Buwizz like performance at half the cost !!!

I managed to build -> RM8´s BAJA Trophy Truck with a single buwizz...(atm)

800x600.jpg

800x600.jpg

I was a bit impatient to test the motors and it flew off my bed :D... (on normal mode)

My buwizz keeps disconecting instantly if i try to go from forward to backwards w/o waiting for the car to stop... The buggy motors seems to be power hungry as the originals...

I will try to add a video when i get the time.

Did you use Chinese motors in this car? 

The problem with these motors is that the wiring is fixed, not like the original from Lego, with the connector (motor polarity changed if you change the orientation of the motor) . If you want to use them side by side in the rear wheels of a car you are in troubles with the simetry, because one motor will rotate in opposite direction than the other.

It is imposible to mount them in a common rail setup with side by side simetry. 

I have in mind only one option, rewire and soldering some motors for common rail setup.

Am I wrong? 

Thank you

You can change the direction in the buwizz app for each output. You donnot need to change the orientation of the connector.

I don't have a buwizz power unit, I am planning to use it first with EV3.

Thank you for the info, I have to check carrefully for the buwizz hw, maybe I have to consider it as an option. 

Thank you!

My friend uses 2 Chinese Buggy Motors, and in such a situation, both motors rotate in the right direction for him.

Just Chinese quality.:laugh_hard:

They have good quality, but they are different regarding wiring, just one thing to take into account. 

Did your friend use a buwizz or similar device to change rotation in one motor? 

Because it's the only way without modifying the hardware. 

Thank you

Each motor was on its own buwizz port and the polarity was set from the in-app. Stacking them and going on ludicrous full speed with kick the protection of the buwizz ^_^ too much power drain at once.
