Default Best 13.5?

Sorry if this question is redundant, but what 13.5 is the best. I'm really looking at the Trinity Pulse, Novak, and LRP. If there was already a thread on this please direct me to it. Thanks, Doug Yunker

Did you think of looking into Tekin Redline motors?

The express motors are Trinity Duo or Pulses (not available yet, pre-order only). Ask anyone who uses them, they can't be beat.

The Trinity motors are beasts. Everyone was talking about one of the Orion 08 13.5's and how fast it was. I dropped in my new Duo 13.5 and pulled him on the straight. They are definately fast and smooth motors. Pulse motors are just the new version of the Duo so I would imagine it's similar?

I'll be testing a hacker E40 13.5 this weekend. Hacker has been putting out BL motors for aircraft for along time.

Well, my B4 is geared 78-25 and it's decent. 25 is the biggest pinion I have

T4 is 84-23 and I am sure I could go higher....
