At any rate I need a new motor so could anybody recommend a decent motor with a good price? I just drive the car in my street, so nothing serious just a good motor. (Also it needs to ship to Canada) Thanks.
Your LHS is right on the money, today's brew of 19t motors are actually very high quality for the price and perform very well. At a few of the larger events last year drivers put runs down in 19t that were fast enough to make the mod a-main. No lack of speed there =)
Grabbing whatever is available locally would be a good move, with a little bit of maintenance you should be able to keep a 19t running well for quite some time. Great bang for the buck.
