Default Rate my motors, Please

These are motors we have aquired in various LOTS, and we know NOTHING about them. Im sure there is probably more info needed. If there is some other info I can get, let me know where to find it.

A little info about the properties of each one (more speed, more torque, blah, blah, blah) would be the MOST help.

Sorry for the noobyness.

Orion Core Modified
Fantom Factory Modifieds
Speed Gems 2
EPIC Binary 2 Stock
Unknown - black chrome can, EPIC27H on arm (stock)
Race Prep - No other "obvious" marking, black chrome can, stock

Would like LOTS of opinions. Please leave yours. Any info much appreciated.
Thanks

You've got a real mix there, some of full mods, some are budget mods, some are stocks, and some are "who knows".

With the mods, the Core and the Fantom should be a better quality motor but you need to find out the wind (may be marked on the arms).

With the stocks, any motor that has lost it's label during it's life is probably pretty wrecked by now.

Orion Core Modified- Came out at least 5-6 years ago, handwound, good quality
Fantom Factory Modifieds- Probably handwound, might not be? I dunno, if it looks like some other motor then mabye we could identify it. Its a tuner motor.
Speed Gems 2- Machine wound trinity basher motor, moderate quality, pre-P94 brushes, probably doesnt have the D series can and arm blank.
EPIC Binary 2 Stock- Older stock motor
Unknown - black chrome can, EPIC27H on arm (stock)- Some kinda 27 turn
Race Prep - No other "obvious" marking, black chrome can, stock- Probably quite old, I don't think Race prep has been around for quite a few years.

More than likely the guy you bought these motors off of was into racing around 1998-2000. Alot of new longer lasting motors have come along since then, like the Orion revolutions, and the checkpoint motors. Some of the motors you've got there are probably still raceable, as long as they are in decent shape.

Default Thanks

Great response guys. Thanks a ton.

So, Im gonna keep the Core and Fantom. What might the others be worth? I have 2 buddies that will be wanting them.

I'll probably keep one of the stock motors for myself too......just because. Binary or Race Prep? Huuuuh?

Sorry dude but doesn't seem like you know much .....

Fantom mod- hand wound---pics would help solve which mod it's based upon....

Binary2- Quad magnets stocker (higher Rpm's) still in production

Both black chrome can stockers-- P2K2 about 1-1/2 year older generation compaired to the binary (slighly higher torque) Still in production


The oldest "generation" stock motor you have was released about 4 years ago, however they are all still in production and can be bought new. Then probably the oldest motor you have is the speed gems which would date back about 6 years ago, however could still have been bought new as far back as 1-2 years ago....

If your gonna race stock and your track is larger and flatter then you will probably want the binary, if it's smaller and tighter with more elivation changes then the P2K2's would be a good choice.....

when i was running carpet i really loved the binary...never ran mod...just didnt care to cut comms every round and all of the incresed wear on the hardware...and upkeep


Fanton has had some good mods...but which is it...pre limelight or post limelight...but mods are way more maintenance...you can really kill a mod with over gearing or killing a brush and just not cleaning it...


i did it for a few years back when the jrx pro was the ticket...the evolution of the ball diff...the 1700 mah packs...mod was fun but i killed way too many just to be bashing...
