NEW FOR 2017 - MC2!

MOTIV M-Code motors, now MC2 for 2017, come pre-set to perform well in most applications. Each MOTIV M-Code motor comes with a specification check list specific to that individual motor. All MOTIV M-Code spec motors come standard with the new "S-HIGH" rotor. If you prefer a different rotor, please send an email via the "Contact Us" page on the Motiv site and reference your order.

Motiv dealers in the U.S. that have received MC2s are:

ProLevel RC
Fordham Hobbies
Lefthander RC
TQ RC Racing
Activ RC
Gripworks RC
Stormer Hobbies
AMain Hobbies
NorCal Hobbies

& More - Check your local hobby shop!

“Defy” Series Pro Li-Po battery weights

“Shorty” 2 Cell, 7.4v, 5000mah, 65c+ - 215 grams

Couldn't agree more. By far the best customer service I have seen not only from an RC company, but from pretty much any company. Glad to see a company that truly loves what it does and wants to ensure its customers do to. Defiantly going to plaster Motiv decals on everything.

Thanks guys, I appreciate all of the feedback, both positive and negative and so does Paul. Paul doesn't have time to be on here like he used to so Drew and I try to keep him informed and help him take care of any issues. It is really nice to share the positive feedback with him when it is posted here. Thanks again to everyone

Are there any plans for a new motor to combat the new Trinity / TSR motors? Love my Motiv, and the service from Paul has always been phenomenal! Really want to keep a Motiv in my ride(s)!

Yes! A new motor is in the works. Don't know how much I can say about it publicly but I know it was almost ready for IIC and would have been competitive there. He wants to make it a little better though so it's not quite ready yet.

That's great they are coming out with a new motor. I just got a 25.5?snd 17.5 in the mail and can't wait to run them. Until I can get through an entire race without touching the wall and hitting every turn perfect, staying only a couple tenths off the leader, I'll never worry about being "out motored". keep up the good work guys

If there is a new motor coming hopefully it's less torque more revs for large out doors tracks
mine is good out of corners but lack on straight great for small and some med tracks or buggy

Yep, rotor, and you can change your gearing to compensate for the higher torque.

I race usgt and was looking at a new motor; high torque to get i understand. Does the 21.5 have the 12.5 rotor? Can I just put this thing in and I will get more oomph in the chicane vrs my mach2. Or do I need to purchase a different rotor at the same time... which is kinda of an irritant to me.

I now have a 17.5 high rotor for touring car; What sort of fdr should i run?

If the chicane is more challenging then around 4.2? If the track is fast perhaps 3.8?

Does grip level play a part in this?

Yes to all of the above .
Higher the grip the lower fdr we run within reason . Usually just a tooth different .
4.0 @ 45° should be. Good starting point on a med indoor carpet track
