Yes,The end plate is part#TEP1075, and the screws are TEP1156. The top plate that covers the sensor plug is TEP1077. These are from the trinity catalog and I'm sure you can buy them from their site. They also have a whole motor set minus the stator and rotor TEP1079.

Their site doesn't have any of those part numbers. Searching Google doesn't pull up anything either.

Anyone tried the 12.5 high rpm rotor in TC 13.5 blinky? What kind of magnet strength do these usually get. Ive been running the 12.3 HT and am satisfied atm, but want to try something a little bit bigger without loosing top end

They are there if you go to the motors section. Then go to the D3/revtech stock spec rotor section. That will bring up all the rotors. You have to click on each rotor to get the part number. Or you can download the catalog.

So are the D 3.5 17.5 motors being band because they are fast! What's going on I just bought one and i love it but I'm hearing roar isn't going to approve them is this true?

I am not aware of any location the motors are actually beeing banned. The motors are 100% legal and design to meet Roar's standards and have been approved by Roar and are on the motor list. I guess the motors are just that good. I know I like mine :-)

Maybe they are just hating? I seen that locally and they are saying they dont want it as its a "13.5" lol.

Ps. Does anyone know if they make the 21.5. With the 12.5 rotor already? Like the magzilla, kind of dont want to buy motor and another 40 for rotor for the new d3.5 21.5t

It seems like mostly "haters" that are starting this issue, but the motor was approved and put on the Roar Approved list back in May. So there is not concern of the legality of the D 3.5 motors. They were designed to meet the specification given by Roar. The D 3.5 was build to maximize the design based on the rules given, it is not Epic/Trinity's fault that many of the current motor companies are using a 2 - 4 year old motor design...

You can check the list yourself if you like:

They do not have a Maxzilla version of the 21.5 at this time. You can check with EA Motorsports and see if he can do a 21.5 with the larger rotor over having to purchase seperately. I am not sure if he does that or not.

Good luck.

I really don't see what the problem is. It's not like certain people can run the D3.5 and some can't. Trinity products are open to be purchased by everyone. They don't cost any more than most other 17.5 motors either.

My experience, this motor feels the best, and is fast with whatever rotor I use. When I say best, though, I mean in the sense that my car is at the point where it feels most comfortable to drive and I can push it harder. At this point, I've been able to get the most out of the electronics that I probably can, and only thing that is going to make me faster is the way I drive. The car setup is all inclusive; one part of that setup will not make up for any loss in another. Having a slightly faster motor than another person is most likely not going to translate to faster lap times.

17.5 blinky classes are still 100% about the driver. The electronics allowed in these classes are still very close, and if you get beat it's probably because that person just drives better than you.
