Is buying a tuned motor faster than an OEM shelf motor? Why?
What are the motor tuners able or allowed to do under roar rules and is it worth the cost?
Hi Brian, for 1s in 1/12th the are playing with rotor strengths. Other than that the tuners are looking for the best numbers with the stators and the rotors and putting it all togeather from there. Some will put in ceramic bearings. Thats about it, so your chances of getting a good motor off the shelf is a possibility, (less the bearings). Its pretty much a crap shoot, where with a "tuned" motor they have probably weeded out the real turkey motors.
