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

2 Cell, 7.4v, 5000mah, 60c+ - 258 grams

Great products as usual from Motiv and Paul. Motors were great at the US Indoor Champs that just passed--particularly the infield rip!

As Dan posted earlier, I ran a 4.05 FDR and timed the motor at 51 degrees for a track that was probably about 90x40 feet or so. This is a good starting point for anyone interested.

No problem. I have little to no experience with off-road, but I imagine you'd want mid if you have small/few jumps w/ long straights and probably high if you have big/many jumps that you need to clear.

This is exactly what I use in 13.5 wheeler and it works incredibly well. No fan and geared to come off at 140-150 degrees.

Just picked up a 21.5 with the mid rotor for USGT. I'm running on a track with about a 65 foot straight with fairly technical infield. What would be a good place to start my timing and final drive.

Thanks in advance

I would start at around 47-49* on the endbell at around 3.7-3.8 FDR. That's what Drew and I ran in USGT on a 80x36 track in October and we ran 1-2 all weekend until the batteries in my transmitter died in the main

Hi,

New to Motiv motors and I just picked up a 10.5 to run in my B5M buggy. Can anyone recommend gearing/ timing for a medium size clay track with some larger jumps? Thanks!

Hi Tandum,

Great - welcome! I don't know the answer to this, but if someone doesn't get an answer to you by this afternoon I will chat with Paul to see what he would advise and get back to you with that info.

Robbie
