Most of my experience comes from using off road 17.5's and having used both the Reedy and the Trinity--I prefer the Trinity motor.

Novak outlaw is easily identified, and was designed for clubs that allowed other outlaw motors(17.5 d3.5, etc) to race... Brilliant move from Novak !!! Others are not so clearly indentified: Roar caught them only after upgrading their equipment ! I run Novak Spec and keep my integrity...

It easy to tech if you suspect cheating. You can see the rotor color through the motor mounting plate.

Will maybe try later the Reedy.

Default 13.5 motors

Now completely left field! what about ORCA and Hacker? or are they simply outclassed by TRINITY?

Orca and LRP are Euro motors. They run boost in Europe so anything is fast. In the US we run blinky so the strongest motors came to the top....Trinity, TP and Reedy.

If you are running blinky be sure to get the Trinity D3.5 Maxilla version. It comes with the 12.5mm high torque rotor that has proven to be fastest.
+1
You are correct!

Adrian you are wrong, here in Europe we run 13.5 blinky, and the motor most used are LRP X20, thunder Power z3x and Trinity.
I'm holding all such motor, but honestly the ones that a loke less is the LRP as its working temperature is too hight and after 2/3 minutes he loose top speed and torque, much better Thunder Power.

Thread is back from the dead.

In my area, which has some wicked fast guys, you are off pace unless you run a D3.5 Maxzilla.

85mm RO and 10-20 deg timing depending on layout.

Novak? Hahaha. I tried for a few months to get a 13.5 Vulcan Spec w/HT rotor on pace.... No bueno.

I'm going to go to the thread, but just curious to hear your thoughts.
Why is it a piece of garbage?
I have a 17.5 rpm w/ht rotor and just bought the same in 13.5.
They're good at my track, but truthfully it's about 75X40 and most motors very close because of the size. Sometimes a lot of speed can hurt you at my home carpet track. But horsham is a different beast. I've seen 17.5 motors smoke 13.5
