Default Trinity CO27 Stock Motor

Has anyone tried out the new Trinity CO27 Stock Motor? I usually run Monster Horsepower and Green Machine but I saw the CO27 and wondered if its worth getting. I looked for some reviews but haven't found any yet.
I'd appreciate your comments.

Great motor, but lackluster runtimes. When they say "it takes advantage of the new higher capacity cells", it actually means "you need the higher capacity cells if you want to finish the race".

I'm not bashing it... just not a good practice motor. I practice with my Monster Stock (medium-sized track, not much torque needed on current layout) and then throw my Co27 in for a warmup and then the heats/main.

One thing is for certain, the other motors are at a significant disadvantage when up against a Co27. As soon as one person shows up with one at your track, everyone is pretty much going to need one. The difference is that noticable.

So true...that's exactly why I ordered one. My trusty Birdman Eagle has been shot down.

Birdman is tuning VERY nice Co27s right now.

You'll see even more benefits from this motor in the T4. You need more torque for truck, and more torque is exactly what this motor dishes out.

If it's too much, turn down your expo.

"Insane" and "Too Much" are two characteristics that I value highly when it comes to race motors!
