Team Orion 13.5 is a great motor.

Take Care,

He's not asking which modified motor to use, he asked which 13.5 motor is good. He is running in Stock 27T class not modified. Just remember, not everyone runs in the modified class, so give the guy a break.


Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

in our club challenge meet yesterday, the 4wd stock class pulled the biggest number (more than 2wd stock, which was traditionally the most popular class).
i think 13.5BL has given this class a new lease of life.

It's called humor- relax

On another note, for 4wd the brushless 13.5 from eXpress Motorsports would be good because it has a built in fan that would help keep it cool- he also has tuned versions that are rated in the top percentile of each 'batch' that he dynos from the factory. Good Stuff.

Speed passion makes, or should I say, labels a good 13.5 too. Orion, Peak, Trinity, SP and a few others are made by Faigo. I'm sure each Mfg has there own specs to which they are assembled, but from personal experiance the SP 13.5 is very, very good. Novak 13.5 with sintered rotors are not a bad choice either.
