I've been running an Orion Chrome 11x3 and Core Touring 12x1 high speed in my XXX-S for a while but they're both past the copper so I need a new mod. I'm usually at the pointy end of the A final and I feel I've reached the limit of the motors I have. I was thinking of getting something around a 10 as my next motor, ideally one with a lot of torque.
I have quite a few stand-up brushes in good condition so I was thinking of sticking with a stand-up brush motor. But, I could use these brushes in my 2wd buggy and 12th (if I decide to go mod next season) and that leaves me the option of any mod, and there are lots, so I need help.
My first thoughts are:
Orion Core/ Peak Carrera - good durability and torque, uses standup brushes
Reedy Ti - fast, uses standard brushes
Reedy Kr - Looks good, I need to order a motor soon so unless Stormer gets some in within a couple of days I won't get one. I'd also have to buy more brushes.
Trinity D5 - bags of torque, but again I'd need to buy different brushes.
