I got my hands on an orion vst 2 pro. It is a really nice engine. It rips in blinky 13.5, and with boost it is extremely fast too.

As noted the Trinity D3.5, Reedy Mach 2 and Thunder Power Z3R are the top motors. I really think the Trinity is a tick ahead of the other 2.

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.

I would go with a D3.5 from TeamEA motorsports. He does an awesome job of getting you the most out of your motor.

AdrainM - I thought you wouldn't want a high torque motor for on road? Wouldn't you much rather have RPM or broad band? I would thought torque was gear more towards off road. I am running a D3.5 13.5 in my WGT. It came with a 12.5mm Broad Band Rotor(Silver)

That may have been true when we ran boost but not now. We need all the torque we can get to get the cars out of the corners.

Thumbs up

I often wonder if some racers are not using the Red 12.5mm(tep1152) mod rotor in their spec 17.5t & 13.5t motors . No way to catch them then right ??? Trinity is amazing when it comes to not shooting straight ! I'll stick to the rules and the non cheat brands(Novak): Thank you very much !!!!!
