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 know everyone is all excited about the new motors, but any word or information on the Motiv ESC I have seen in some pictures? According to the Motiv Facebook page (in the Tyler Jones announcement) it is called the Incite 160 ESC. Any details on specs to share yet, or estimated release date? I mean it just TQ'd and podiumed in 2wd Open at the Reedy Race, so it can't be that far from ready, right?

Hey Dan,

I haven't been on a large track yet, but would guess around 89mm and 44* is a good start. Temp should be around 120-130 after 8 mins.

Hey Juan,

The speedo is close. Paul has been working on getting the non-timing stuff squared away to fit ROAR's specs. Once that is complete, it should be formally announced.

Where have they been released? Im still looking to find a 17.5 for my 2wd buggy. Also does this motor have rotor options like the old model?

My 17.5 MC2 arrived and can't wait to try it out for 1/12.

Got a 21.5 MC2 coming in. Any recommendations on timing and gearing for USGT? (100-120ft straight)
