Are you racing or just playing? the 19 turn C2 is a good motor to start with.

Typically what you will see is modified motors or BL in 4WD and whatever class of 2WD. So, if you want to run both with the same motor, I'd say go for BL and run mod class in both. If you race both cars with one motor you won't get any kind of longevity out of a brushed motor.

the track i run at alternates between 4WD and 2WD classes. one weekend it is 4wd cars gas and electric and the next it is 2wd gas and electric. i plan to get a mamba max brushless but i dont have the $ right now. im looking at the cheakpoint series of motors. i like the idea of the 19t

What's nice about the C2 is that it's fast and cheap! But not so fast that you break the heck out of your car every run.

If u are looking for a long lasting mod go with the orion v2 with the enduro brushes i put about 20 runs on a 12x2 with no drop in power.

I only replaced the brushes because i put a 10x3 in the can.


This motor is great i cant say enough about it

i would say go with the checkpoint. check out axiommotors.com they sell some awesome tuned mods. give them a look. i like to run a 19 turn in my sb pro. its plenty fast.
