AdR|aN, I do have a rebuildable stock motor. A guy was kind enough this past weekend to show me how to take it apart and how to lathe it. I was unsure of what lathe to buy. I just want to buy the proper lathe for my needs which is stock motor for carpet and mod for offroad.
Before venturing into what lathe to buy, first ask yourself.
Is there any STOCK MOTOR race that you will be attending?
Meaning of STOCK MOTOR here is those UNrebuildable motors.
If you are, then you have 2 choice.
1. Buy 2 lathe. 1 for stock motor (unrebuildable) and 1 for mod motors.
2. Buy Hudy Multipack comm lathe. Its 2 lathe in 1. Cuts both mod and stock motor.
But i have found out that alot of manufacturers are actually launching alot of rebuildable stock motor. Not many are into stock motors that stay like that . STOCK.
So check out the local racers and make a decision.
As a comm lathe is a one time investment, try to get top of the line comm lathe. I would recommen HUDY. Others would say otherwise. Depend on yourself and your pocket.
Just my 2 cents
