Redefine stock motor
Just wanted to know your opninion.
What raely is a stock motor.
NO don't quote the Roar rulebook to me.
That's not what I mean.
What I mean is what do we want a stock motor to be...
For starters, nowadays we have rebuildable stock/spec motors in 27, 23 19 and 17t.
In the ol'days there just was closed endbell 27t bushing 24degree (or in some cases 36 was allowed)
I know in Europe for 6cell 8min 1/12scale even a 35turns stock was used. Because then the batts we're like 1200, 1400 and later 1700mah...
What I'm trying to say is, with all those new batteries, and also new classes, isn't it about time to re-think by what we want a stock motor to be.
For instance Touring is just about the main class at this time.
But there is no real worldwide stock-spec wind specified.
27t in several countries.
23t in Asia
19t in USA
17t in Europe
All this diversity increases the price, and staggeres development.
In one wind or the other.
Nowadays we can mainain our "rebuildables". Maybe you do not realise this, but especially for TC this is a major benefit.
This is one very important improvement. And also put the door wide open for the other spec winds like mentioned above.
Also, how muw increase in the price would it be for a manufacturer to include BB instead of high-tech shaped bushings?! I talked to several, and they say nowadays this would mean a minimal increase, as oposed to a decade ago.
Or further back when stock rules were developed.
