Bill941, How would you compare your Tekin to the other motors in your class? I have got a 10.5 Tekin in my Losi xxx-cr and I think it is the best motor I own.

My wife runs Tekin RS pro with a Tekin 17.5 Redline motor in her T4. She runs stock truck class.
She likes the setup.

You cant go wrong with a Team Orion 17.5...we have several guys running them in their stock classes at the local track and they are very quick and smooth motors...also you can run your own sensor wire so that you dont have all the extra wire that comes with other motors.

Tekins customer service is good. They go out of their way to help you out on their forum or on here too. Plus, if you buy Tekin RS system with a Tekin Redline motor. If your sensor wire disconnects. You can still run. There is a sensor in the Redline motors that kicks in and you won't reck the motor.

I ran Mod 2WD Buggy and Mod truck at CRCRC with Tekins RS Pro and Redline motors in both of them. I ran my Mod truck in one of the qualifier races. The the sensor wire disconnected by the speeedo with 4 minutes of the race to go. I know something happend to the truck. It had a different RPM to it.
After the race. I found out about the wire off by the speedo. I reconnected the sensor wire. No problems, still runs great.
Infact, This past weekend. I won The A-main at the track I run weekly at in Mod truck with the same Tekin RS Pro and Redline 7.5 motor.

Prolly can't go wrong with any that are out there.

Save 17.5 for novice.. any in here?
I'd rather 13.5 or mod. For those who aren't novice. If you can't handle a 13.5 then ....

But.... that's just it. There are a lot of guys running stock that honestly... can't handle a 13.5 and would be better suited with a 17.5 that is the same speed as the good ole days of 27t stock.

13.5 is a mild mod

IMO, unless it's a big race, only 2 classes are needed... mod and stock. At big races I can understand doing an intermediate class also. Or splitting it up based on ability and not motor, like is done in 1/8 with sportsman and expert.
