don't need many parts to complete and not going 100% original, Hotshot wheels and some other brand of shocks as well.

any recommendations on a motor?
I don't want flat out performance, just for fun in the street and dirt in the yard

will be my first tamiya RC, wanted it when it came out, never got it, now catching up with my days from a while back

Well, you could always use the stock 540 motor. I always liked Trinity motors though. I think I had a Joel Johnson Modified in my Hot Shot II. I have a Trinity Ruby 13T in my touring car that's a lot faster. Not sure what's 'good' right now though.
