i`d say electric motor,but if it is driving a truck or car? would it become an engine if it is propelling something?
is this a trick question.

So I guess there is no reason to have them little electric motors in them servos either? I mean who wants to rev or turn their Nitro.. Just let it idle in a strait line right? X;)

Retread has defined the answer to his own question. Let's change the name of this forum to Electric Motors and leave it right where it is.

Wow this thread is even older than that one from 2004 that someone dug up a week or two ago. Please ffs, use spell check and punctuation. Trying to read your posts is like trying to find words in one of those word search puzzles....everything looks like a scramble of letters and then if you stare at it long enough words suddenly pop out at you here and there until you can read it.

GOT to be kidding me, @snowcheetah94 . Over 14 years since that thread was posted, you reply to a member who was banned from this site, and NOW I get a blistering headache trying to read a useless post.
Please check the dates before you reply, and if your response can not be interpreted it will be deleted. Immediately.

LMAO I just realized that the guy who got banned is the same guy that I saw some really old post on some forum called BannedRC or something like that a couple weeks ago. When I stumbled across that ban hammer pic I did a google search trying to find more pics that might have been related. I didnt find that but I did find that post where that same guy was running RCNT and Woodie in particular into the ground. He seemed to be really pissed about getting banned and was talking trash soemthing about cheating and the top 100 sites...I have no idea what he was talking about with the cheating but this guy was seriously butt hurt about getting banned lol. and just for the record no I did not reply to it since it was about as old as this one lol. Sometimes the internet can actually seem like a fairly small place. :)

Seems he was banned a year before I got here. I think this forum started in '02 and if old stories are accurate, most of the original members here were banned from Traxxas who banned almost everyone who ever joined.
