Wallstreet, if you don't mind I'm going to paraphrase a previous post because it's still relevant.
Red Dot motors are new 540J's that I tune for racing applications. I've been racing R/C for 2 decades (including ten times to the Trackside TCS events) and figured out some of the secrets of these silver cans years ago. For several years I just tuned motors for myself and friends, and sold a few to racers against whom I wasn't going to be competing. We won a lot of races. But now I'm older, my reaction times and vision are fading, and frankly even the fastest motor isn't going to help me out a whole lot.
So I decided last year that it would be entertaining to spread the power around to some discriminating racers who appreciate how difficult it is to make these little demons fast (really fast), know how to maintain them, and are willing to make the investment to win a few races.
I went out and bought a bunch of specialized equipment and a couple cases of motors (most of which got ruined and were trashed) and went to work.
Each motor is engraved with a unique number (so I can keep track of it while it's going through the tuning process and the buyer can tell it apart from his other motors) and has a red dot painted on the positive side of the can so you know where to solder the positive lead. Hence the name.
Yes, my motors are as fast - or faster- as anything you'll see at Trackside. You might even be surprised if you ask around how many are already using my motors up there. But you were at the TCS and saw Marty's dominance in F103GT and Steve Kalk's amazing drives in GT3- those were both Red Dot Powered cars.
