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 saw a new motor the MCR reviewed by Nick Adams on youtube. Is this a new product from Motiv that haven't been officially released?

I like the way the sensor board is tied to the end plate. You can take the three long screws out and the whole thing comes apart in a more traditional fashion.

What it means is it will only be released for European and Asian markets. It will not be submitted to ROAR for approval. Only the MC2 will be legal for the STATES.

In Ann effort for paul to keep up with demands on the us market of the mc2, he had to figure a way to also supply the European markets without depleting what stock he has for he is side of things. Hence, the European motors, and the mc2 for all of us stateside.

Do Motiv motors include non-magnetic screws for the timing ring and stator? If not is there a kit available? If not, will other brands fit (Trinity/Team Scream)?

Screws are steel. I'm sure some aluminum can be sourced.

there is nonmagnetic screw available for the motors; look on the website options. Motors come standard with steels.

I can only find the standard hardware on the website. Not all motors use the same length screws so a Motiv approved source would be preferred.
