Default Can It!

Hey, i just bought a new checkpoint 12x2 for my b4. Noticed the checkpoint motor cans are now silver, instead of black. I dont see anything on their site about the change! Doe's anyone know whats going on with this change to the motor? Personally i think it looks pretty sweet!

the black cans may have imported more heat thus y they chose to go to the silver ones.it might have only been a couple of degrees but this is enough for them to change,gives them better feedback and less complaints they mighht have to deal with

I noticed this too about 2 months ago when I got my new 10x2 for my new XX-4WE. I talked to Danny Hartson about it and he said the black paint was a special heat dissapating coating that is no longer allowed to be applied for environmental reasons. The new coating has similar properties, but is unable to be supplied in black he said.

I too talked with Dan Hartson about the new Checkpoint motors. It was to $$$ and the environmental issues too.
