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

That's got better numbers than mine and should be a bullet. 69/33 on medium sized track was perfect

Hi Phillip F, check with TQ Racing from Chino CA. I got 17.5 from TQ. They have the online shop as well.

Or call Whip It RC Raceway from Reno, NV. Adam from the shop might be able to help you. https://www.facebook.com/WhipItRC/

wow....not to interfere, but really?....you cant get a motor for whatever reason and you put a very good company and even better person on blast for it. How old are you?....this is one of the many reason why people give up on this hobby cause of very small petty people like you. And dont think Im some fanboy or me and Paul hang out, its just sad that a man and his company has to be treated like this for the dumb reasons you put in front of us. If you didnt like his product or it didnt live up to its hype or was defective, you may have a reason to "rant"...but cause you cant get one of his motors cause they out of stock?....seriously!

IMO...I wouldnt wont you running anything of mine with your attitude and small thinking. In fact I wouldnt even wont you in the hobby cause you are a cancer of "bad" that will infect others with this type of thinking, and bashing of good positive and hard working racers and companies trying everyday to be "good"

Thanks for you time...and this goes for the same for the others complaining about the TSR or anything similar...grow up and play with your toy cars

This motor is superior to $160 motors put out at $109 price point so customers can have an affordable performance motor. I'm sure they could turn motors a lot quicker if they compromised quality. This is not a fair statement.

Paul is working on stop on motors and quality products he puts out constantly. The fact that hobby shops and people alike cannot keep them in stock says a ton about the quality and speed of his products. You aren't the only one who's been waiting for motors-I race for motiv and I was waiting for a while! Just what happens when something comes along that everyone wants. He's trying his very best in putting out a good product with zero tolerance for sacrificing the quality of the product-its his name and reputation on the line. What would you do?

Wow Ggrant did you try emailing Paul directly. I know he has got back with me. I tried to get a Motiv MC2 when they first came out. You have to understand that his motors are checked by him or his team and if it not right he not putting it out there. I even tried to get a team member to get me the hookup Mr Dodge himself But I understood that he couldn't do it just like that. I met Paul at. Middle River Stock Wars sponsored by Motiv. I talked with Paul himself and seen the Mc1 in action and I was hooked. When I heard the MC2 was coming out I knew I wanted it. I emailed Paul and he got back with me on a motor. I told him want I wanted and I was on the waiting list. It took sometime. I tell you patience is a virtue. Paul contacted me again to tell me he has a motor for me and that he apologize for the wait And that he fully understands that if I no longer wanted the motor. I was yea I want it and sent my money. I got my motor within 3 days and I tell you what the numbers on the fact sheet I just say it better then great. Fact sheet signed by Paul. Great guy Great Company Great products. Maybe you need recant your statement and try to email him. I know that he will get back to you. I waited and I got mine built by him . Motiv100%

One should not bash someone or a company, not good for the hobby in general. We need to do everything possible to promote and build this hobby.

Everyone is waiting if they want one of these motors. Paul is one of the best people I have ever dealt with in ANY industry! He is doing everything he can to get motors out as fast as possible and maintain quality (you can only build things as fast as you can get in materials). With the demand for the MC2 the backorder list is HUGE. Keep up the great products MOTIV, quality is worth waiting for!

I'll say this for Motiv, at least you don't pay first and then wonder when you'll get it. You only pay when your motor is ready to ship

How safe is it to run these motors outdoors with the can open as it is? I will note the orientation of the venting is only on the bottom. Good design. Safe to run outdoors if venting is all on the bottom of the motor? Thx!

Many people are running them outdoors on asphalt without any issues.

Default 14th year of the Midwest All-Star Carpet Series

Not sure everyone knows but I just wanted to give Paul some more kudos for another series well done!

We have just completed our 14th Year of running the Midwest All-Star Series sponsored by MOTIV. First thanks to Paul Lemuiex for being the title sponsor for the past few years along with all the great support he offers to us local racers as well. Thanks to all the tracks that took part in this season...WCRC, Summit RC and Hobby Town Oshkosh....with out them this or any type of racing would not be able to take place. Thanks all of you for making us all feel welcomed and giving us all an enjoyable place to race.

A big thank you to all the racers that took part in the series this year....we had our biggest turn out at an event ever with over 120 entries...thats amazing. We had a total of 455 entries over 6 rounds and thats an average of 75 entries per event. You racers are the whole reason we do this so there is some local "big time" racing going on and we hope everyone had a good time and were able to enjoy the racing and the series....along with getting out to some new tracks in our area.

Here are the final results we hope everyone that was able to walk home with an award liked them we try to mix it up each year and this years awards were awesome and something new.
