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

I have a 17.5 MC1 motor that I will be using on an outdoor track that is about 180 x 80 ft. The suggested gearing for MC1 motors seems to have been removed from the wiki page. Does anyone have any suggestions on what gearing and timing I should start with?

You'll probably want to be around 50* timing. Gearing I think would be around 3.7. Best to try it in practice, run 2-3 minutes and check temps. Make changes from there based on temp and how it feels on the track. I always try to keep the temp around 160 or less.

That does seem risky. I'm sure there are some team guys that are doing it but I'm not sure if they are taking any sort of precautionary measures or not.

I don't see it being a huge problem with a mid motor buggy. We get the carpet fuzz in them for onroad. I'm thinking what about attaching some vinyl window screen?

How do I order a motor that is showing out of stock on the website? Do I wait for a restock or can I pre-order somehow? Thx

Has anyone tried MC2 - 13.5T on Stadium Truck? I am prepping T5M for Super Stock Truck class for a trophy race.

Suggested gear ratio per manual of T5M is 26/78 -7.80:1 and the track will be a large indoor clay track.

i will start with 26/78 and adjust, but would appreciate if you have any suggestion. Thanks!

Ya, I got one of the 17.5 motors. I think I should go get a lottery ticket now but probably used what little luck I have up already.
