Default Which Motor Should I Get?

Hey guys,

I have an old TRF 415 and I was wondering what 17.5 motor I should get. I currently have a Tekin RS ESC.

Thanks!

If it's top of the line performance you're after, I really recommend team scream racing - will outperform r1wurks and trinity d4/d3.5 in my experience

I second the Team Scream. I know the developer/builder and what went into it.

I'd strongly consider a Team Powers Actinium if you're racing @ a track using ROAR rules; for all other situations (racing or bashing) it doesn't get much better than a Trinity D3.5 Maxzilla.

If you want value. I just used the new Amain private label motor. (Eco something, bright green) Got it for $40 on Black Friday. It was just as good as my Team Powers Actium I was using. Who knows how long it will hold up but I was impressed.
