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

Longer stator helps increase the magnetic field.

Motors are making their way out to shops. There were about 250 in the first order, various spec winds. The next order should be here soon and is another 250ish, likely various spec winds. All of them have been submitted to ROAR and have passed inspection.

Not sure on that. Kinda strange that they haven't posted anything about even receiving the samples that Paul submitted. I'm hoping they are added to the list soon.

They are probably waiting to confirm that the motor is available in at least 3 locations based on what I have seen with other approved motors.

Hey Fred,

It will for sure be sometime after Snowbirds. I chatted with Paul a little bit yesterday and he is super swamped. He's filling a lot of backorders right now.

Thanks

You can check with Prolevel RC (prolevelrc@gmail.com), Windy City RC or Trackside Hobbies to see if they have something in stock now... Or you can maybe email Paul if those don't work out.
