KWA can pull a M150 for certain, I doubt whether a CA motor can do that.

Actually I think the CA Motor can pull a m150 better because their motors are High Torque. While KWA motors are Lipo Ready Motors built to take high electricity flow for High Speed. I was able to pull a m150 but the KWA motor in the pistol grip started getting really hot. I didn't want to fry a perfectly good high speed motor so I switched it to a cheap ultra high torque SRC motor. Very slow rate of fire, but pulls heavy springs easily. As for the CA vs. KWA which one will pull with more ease if your willing to sacrifice ROF. Go for the CA dude. Don't kill the KWA motor, you can use it on lighter spring applications, its a very good motor. Just not for high power.

Wrong! KWA AEGS come stock with a high-torque motor. Maybe yours was a lemon?

well i hooked them both up to a 9.6 and it seems as though the kwa has a faster rpm than the ca. im not so interested in rof, id much rather have distance and accuracy.

No my KWA motor can pull a m150 spring. Just not very well. It does have a faster rate of fire but the motor is struggling as I can tell from the pistol grip becoming very hot after firing only around a mid cap. CA High Torques will pull an m150 with less struggle in exchange of ROF. If your motor gets to hot it could fry a coil and I wouldn't want to do that to a KWA motor.

Buy a systema Magnum motor, much stronger magnetic field coupled with a hot winding provides both high ROF and High torque. Now if your using the same magnets its given and take, you can wind it for torque, speed or the middle ground. My CA motor in my SLR-105 would get warm with a guarder SP120, however that was using a 9.6v NiMH battery which is less efficent, so its possible some of that heat was lost due to battery inefficiency, I had not tested it with my 11.1v Zippy Flight max LiPo I use in my KM16BR. The motor does get warm in my KM16BR with the completely stock gearbox, but no where near hot, so its right around its most efficient load with room to go maybe to a M140 but not much higher.
