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

That game was changed back in Oct. This is just another to play in that game. Good to see Paul getting on board. Motor looks great and seems to be there with all the others.

Hoping they could maintain the same price point as the previous Motiv motors. The great thing about Motiv is the very consistent quality control.

Still waiting on my 21.5 as I heard only two are out. But, the 17.5 tc feels super strong!

We have run the 17.5 for the last 2 weekends . We have not even begun to tap into this motors potential and are already running strong against the TSR. The rotors measure higher than anything I have ever seen in a stock motor as well as a incredibly impressive low resistance numbers on the stator. Will post more as we dig into it .

I would also like to add that we ran the original 21.5 with the new rotor at the Hudy race last weekend and took the TQ and win in USGT. Can't wait to get our hands on the MC2

Maintenance is certainly key with the large venting on the can. As with anything designed specifically for a racing application this motor will treat you as well as you treat it

I haven't, but I would imagine you could put a larger pinion and let it rip. Mega torque on this thing.
