Default Brushless Rating

Is there any way to dyno a brushless motor? I am looking into a 17.5 motor but they all seem to be the same. They are the same price, they look virtually the same. What adavntage would say a team Banzai motor have over a novak or lrp?

none. Get the novak. They have by far the best record and service.

I ran the Speedpassion 17.5 recently and it worked great. I don't know how it compares on a dyno to other brands.... but I doubt anyone really knows that.

From what I saw at the iHobby Show, the Tekin motor is very well built.

The best dyno is the track.

you can push brushless motor's till they burn a wind or the magnet goes out, so there is not really a way to dyno them.
If you simply manage too keep it cool for 5 second more then the last you blew while testing it'll put out more power.
A racecar is only as good as the mechanic who build it.
