2 months ago I would have said Novak, but after I ran the Duo based motor from Team eXpress I would for sure go with the Trinity Duo motors. You have to gear it to the moon though.

The Vortex 08 are the newest motors

They have a small fan inside them, the can is shorter and lighter, they have a different sized rotor I believe also. And they look sweet!

just to throw out a variable...might you know his gearing and battery type?? those 2 factors can affect overall punch and top speed.

I agree. Express motors are rockets!!! They have a slight edge over a stock DUO/Pulse due to the magic that Tag does to them. I run a few different DUO's (13.5, 10.5, 7.5) and they all out perform every other brand that I've run against.
