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!

One other racer was running the same motor and was up to a 41 tooth pinion. I still need to work on my driving and find another tenth or two, but the motor held up its end of the deal.It is a short stack, with the S High Rotor.
Thanks liljohn for the info, very helpful. Looking forward to ordering mine today. Happy & safe 4th to all!

Yea I've used it 2 weekends and it is nice. Gotta plug in both leads as the 2nd set powers the fan so it runs continuously which is nice.

Roar's new rules takes into account the lowest IR for each wind. That's why it says the minimum could change before the rules go into effect. No motors that are currently legal will be impacted by the rules. If a manufacturer comes out with an even lower minimum resistance before Sept 1st, that will be the new minimum. The current minimum for 17.5 is set from the new Trinity motor (which is 17.8 per pole)

Used the speedo 2 weeks, once for mod tc and once for stock tc. Very easily adjustable, responds very well to changes for throttle and brake settings. The power cap is slick. You won't be disappointed!!!

same price as its competitors, so I guess all of them should?

Not a HobbyWing at all. It has more similarities to the Team Powers speed control.
