The hurricanes had multiple model numbers and came with different motors/gearboxes (pinion). A part number from the gearbox and/or a tooth count from the motors pinion gear would help get you exactly what you are looking for.
Hi guys, thank you for the help, I would really like assistance on this issue please!
The motor I have is a 13 Tooth pinion. And I can easily pull the existing press fit pinion and add it to a correct length and diameter shaft replacement if there is a good option avalible?

Truthfully I would like to find a better solution than the stock motors...
The performance for us is fine, just cant get the durability we need out of them.
They keep burning out the brushes (the brush itself splinters and fractures completly)... They are too frail for our usage it seems...
Went through the stock motors fairly quickly.
Replaced them with Titans, and those went out very quickly under the same mode of failure.
Another set of random 540s and the same outcome.
Its a dual mode drive by wire/full RC with a Bluetop Optima cell.
My setup dictates I stay on 12Vdc motors if possible. And I plan to add more direct cooling to the motors to mitigate our obvious heat issues.
I am pretty sure it is the duration of the use that is creating the issues.
Do they have a motor that is perhaps a little larger to sink the extra energy? And would retain ~same speed and if anything perhaps a add a little torque, yet still a efficient option?
I ran a set of RC 27turn motors in there and the speed is slightly greater, not really noticeable, but power consumption far outweighed the benefit IMO.
