I'm looking for a new motor for my USGT and want the best. I currently have a Tekin but I was told that there are others that are better suited for this. Money or name are not really an issue and we are not that stricken at my track, so give me some suggestion.

Team Scream has a killer 21.5 motor. It's not ROAR legal yet, but should be in the next couple of weeks. We did a lot of testing with this motor at The Gate and it's been the best so far.

What is your track like and how long are your races? Short straight and tight turns or like mine tracks long straights (~160+ft) and open flowing turns. We run 12 minute mains in USGT. Makes a difference on what is "the Best" if there is such a thing. Two weeks ago we had 10 cars in USGT and at least 7 of them had different motor brands and all 10 had best laps within 1 second of each other on the mid 16 second tack layout.

I still think motors can be just the luck of the draw and brand doesn't matter. Yes you can play with rotors etc. but I have a used old Thinder Power that I started with was $50. I've consistently set fast lap with it every week on a track that changes weekly. Always looking for more, I've tried a D3.5 (was slower). A speed passion (also slower). Last week I tried the new D4 but came new with a bad sensor board. All fixed now so we'll see what comes this week. But I'll carry the old TP that smells like it's burning up even tho it's only 150* to throw back in if needed.

I see by your signature block that your using a 6.2 for GT, would you share with me your setup, I'm looking for a base setup.

I started with Andrew Cartwright's setup off the AE site

Luck of the draw certainly helps and I feel your pain with the D4 (read the VTA thread about the troubles I had with my Much Bitched About (MBA) motor, which like your D4 were resolved by replacing the sensor board; now its one of the better 25.5 motors I have). But assuming a correctly functioning motor, I agree with you that Brand doesn't matter as much as some people think (or want you to think). Most of the newer motors (and I've dyno'd many 21.5 motors) are pretty good and with the correct timing and gearing can be contenders (even the old 21.5s I used in VTA years ago look pretty good, they just draw more amps than the newer motors). 7 different motors out of 10 USGT cars all running lap times within 1 second - probably driving skill (or in my case lack there of) is the bigger factor in the order of finish than what motor was in the car: a great driver is hard to beat no matter what motor he/she is using.

PS the speed passion motor has different timing chips, which one did you use?

Ok so I just got my tires broken in and one of them some how gets cut across the carcass from left to right. Ive put a couple layers of ca glue on it. It will be sometime before I run them again. Do you guys think that the glue will hold? Or do I need to break in a new set? Really dont want to have to do that.

I hate to tell you this but I would start breaking in a new set. The tire deflects under load and the CA will cause that small area to be harder then the rest of the tire. It will cause a "bump" in the tire. Similar to the dreaded flat spot from locking up the brakes but in the opposite direction.

This was my thought, as well.

Still can't decide on a motor. I need an all around cuz my track changes every race, sometimes tight and technical, other times fast with long straight. I've narrowed it down to the Orca TX, Team Powers ACTINIUM and the Trinity D3.5 21.5 Turn ROAR Spec Certified Handbuilt Motor.
