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

I've studied both motor designations closely and I can say that the MC2 = MC1 + 1.

At the last Motiv series event at Windy City RC, Paul had me test the MC2 in 17.5 sedan. I do not know what is specifically/technically different with the new motor, but it was good... We needed one or two more runs to really fine tune the timing and gearing. When Paul is able to bring this motor to the market, you will want one.

Hey guys,

1s packs are back in stock now. MC2 will be available soon. Paul is expecting his first big shipment in the next few days. It should be ROAR approved before Snowbirds.

Thanks

Hi Phillip,

Our offroad guys seem to like the motors. The new MC2 will likely be exactly what you are looking for. These should be available soon.

Man, if I got a dollar every time I was told this motor would be out "soon", it would pay for itself, haha.

Eager to get my hands on one of these. The anticipation is killing us!

Can anyone confirm if this motor is competitive with the new TSR? Was anybody running it at the Hudy race?
