What is the difference between a mod motor lathe and stock motor lathe? I just started carpet racing this winter and have been a nitro offroad guy. I want to race 19t mod this summer with my T4 and want to get a lathe that will cut that and do my stock motor that we run in carpet.
Stock motor lathes are for the old stock motors that cannot be opened. Almost all new stock motors are rebuildable so you should get a Mod motor lathe. I don't even know why companies still offer stock lathes.....I can't remember the last time I've seen a sealed stock motor.
Hope this helps,
