Don't be a hater speedy, I know about the motors & labels pros and cons. I'm just suggesting some numbers so that rookie can make his own sound decision on whats best. Not only that sometimes pro versions are the same prices as the regular ones when they are on sale.. Anyways you shouldn't say "stay away" you should more like say try em all out then make a decision with what works best. After all, what may not work for you speedy might work for rookie. Don't deny rookie the chance to at least check em all out.
Just pick up the most popular one at the track you race at, and ask a lot about tunning and maintenence.
Stay away from trinity "Pro" motors, usually a waste of cash. The dyno numbers (what calstar was saying) rarley mean anything, and the brush hoods are usually always misaligned, and a shimmed motor means they stick one shim in the top and let the com bounce all over
Best thing you can do is pick up a similar motor from anouther builder, that actually trys to do it right. Fukuyama, Fantom, Paradigm, Team Br00d.....all sell great products, and do a great job trying to tune the assorted Yokomo and Epic motors on the market.
Dont be too concerned with all the mumbo jumbo, just try to learn about keeping the motor in top shape, which is the prime concern in stock racing.
If you havent done so already, then go to Big Jim Greenmeyer's (ex-trinity R/D guy and general jackass we all hate to love) motor Forum and read up http://www.rccars.com/forums/forumd...&forumid=19
He tells it like it is and if you follow his advice you will never be disappointed. You will learn more then you ever even thought existed about R/C motors on that forum. [/B][/QUOTE]
