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

On the new mc2, anywhere from 3.92/lower 40's on timing or 4.22 and 48* timing is what is common.

What is Max timing on the MC2? just curious because the timing marks only go up to 40 deg and I don't have a motolyzer.

Infinite timing - there really isnt a limit. The can only has markings up to 40 degrees, but you can easily go past them.

^whqt he said. Highest timing Ive seen other team drivers running is around 52* in tc/1/12. Best area for overall temps and power seems to be 45-48*.

From talks with paul the last few days, he's working really hard on trying to supply the demands. Last I heard he had about 300 motors to sort through and assemble/test. Going as fast as he can and is rather stressed as you could imagine. I know we are all impatient, but having run them so far, it's worth the wait!

Some awesome stuff is coming out of Motiv.

Latest shipments that came in at my local shop had near perfect sensor boards, and rotors that were almost 1700 in strength.

Lovin the MC2s!
