Last thursday i had another practice with the silver 17.5T motor in 1cell and boosted configuration and the motor never went hotter then 48C, the car i used was a tamiya 1/12th RM-01 and it had great performance and lots of power. Next time i will try to change the motor timing to see what happens with it's performance but so far i'm very pleased with this motor.

I've been running mine in 1/12th 10.5 blinky. And so far its going really well. It keeps up with all the brand name stuff no problems. Shame that I cant

I'm also using it with the trackstar 1s esc and A-Spec 1s lipos. At half the price of the big name stuff it sure is good value.

Never went above 80 deg C and it still died. Maybe its good for blinky....
That`s 176 deg F ,a lot of motors would give up at that temp,i was told by express motor sports to run my Trinity D3.5 at 160 deg F max.

I've ran many motors and none gave up even at 90 deg C.

Ran my silver 13.5t trackstar boosted in a 416x. Reached temps of a little over 170 deg F on a few occasions with no problems so far. I have about 16 runs on the motor at the moment. Am very happy with the motor so far.

If this motor is a sister to the reedy sonic then you are probably running it too hot. I have 2 sonic 21.5 motors and they both go flat at 160 f. It is a very noticeable difference and my lap times drop 0.5 seconds. They are both extremely fast under this temperature.

Got a 10.5 in both my Pro10 cars and no problems at all.
They both did about 12 to 15 runs on them and temps didn't go above 65 degrees celcius.
They had timing,boost and turbo
Great motors.
Fast and stay cool when not over geared but that is with all motors
Going to get me a 17.5 also for 2S WGT.

regards Roy

I'm thinking about buying some 10.5T,13.5T and a 21.5T silver brushless trackstar motor.
They are great and hard to beat in price

The Trackstar/Thunderpower/Reedy Sonic family of motors is a newer design an is faster than the SP 3.0 motor. Also the SP has the most idiotic power lead attachment design.

Last somer i used a speedpassion MMM series 17.5T motor,i've only driven this motor just a couple of times without over gearing or to much boost or turbo. One heat it went great (max temp 65c) but not as fast as the others who were using the same motor and the other heat without any changes about esc settings the motor just blow-up. That motor did cost me as much as 3 trackstar motors and lasted not even 1 race day. I did order another one of that speedpassion motor and still is running great, my guess was that that the first speedpassion motor had a failure but it was an expensive failure to my wallet. If the trackstar motor blows up, i don't care to much about buying another trackstar motor. And so far i'm very pleased by it's performance and quality.

Maybe to get a motor that works and a shot at some decent customer service.

I paid only 42usd for mine speedpassion v3.0. Maybe I am lucky as I don't have any issue them. A 4.5 in my VBC and a 17.5 in my F1. I do find it run a bit cooler then my LRP so I did increase the timing slightly. So the speed is on par with my LRP. Both my lrp and the sp will top out around 95-100km/h at my local track (mid size outdoor track, 4.5 with turbo in the vbc running 7.8 ratio). Temperature is around 7x degree so I think it is well within safety zone.

I'm pretty impressed with my Trackstar motor. I made the mistake of buying a non-sensored Trackstar ESC to go along with it. It was terrible until I replaced it with a sensored 80A LT4 ESC from Brushless Hobbies. Now, this motor really flies! It's the fastest car in the 17.5 racing I did last week. Too bad my driving skills suck. But they couldn't keep up on the straight away! I'll be buying a couple more just to have on hand.

Going by the reports & feedback from people here, I dare say I'll be ordering one very soon, when they come back in stock that is.

Cheers
Rob.
