I've always been a trinity guy but you will have to have a few motors I feel.. And piece together a great one. Bought a new monster 17.5 for ex and swapped the rotor right away.

I would like to give Tsr or motiv a shot though.

The certified plus monsters look nice.
Right now I have two certified D4s and it seems like new ones at the track are faster. So I have an R1-v15 and one of the new Orion's on the way. Probably going to try a team powers also. The V1s were good but have not tried a V2

LOL, so true.....

If you don't want to wait Maclan Team seems a good option.
