Default MVP Stock motor Experiences in Truck?

Anyone got experiences they can post about this motor? My LHS currently doesn't run a true stock class ( they run a 21T Street spec class and a 19T spec class ) so I have no experience racing with stock motors, But I would like to have one in my pit box incase I race in a class with them and maybe use it as my practice motor . ( current 19T motor too much difference to practice with for spec class ).

Basically want to know if this is a good motor. Not found of trinity products but I am happy so far with reedy stuff.

MVP is one of those motors you either love or hate. Personally, I love em' ! Definitely check out Big Jim's info. www.bigjimracing.com or www.rccars.com (Jim has a section of the message board) Good Luck

I know the 767 is recommended for trucks, should you still do the modification of the brushes ( make them square ) with these brushes?

Cain;
Yes, that is a must. I run MVP's also. You can run them hot and the magnets won't fade. Try that with a trinity product. Also, the p2k is prone to brush hanging in the dirt, an MVP won't. Sucks to be at the front of the pack and then have a brush stick....

Matt;
I know you have heard me or Kevin holler..."snap the brushes!" curse those p2k's!!!

Ok, I will look into the MVP. Found a website that has free shipping on everything and the MVP price is pretty good.

I agree with Trinity stuff. Not found of there products at all. Too bad I have to run the Street Spec (our truck spec class motor ).

You can't keep a good secret to yourself, let the rest of us know!

And yes Taz, those dang P2ks' do NOT like fine dust.

I did burn up an MVP arm, but that was my stupidity, I put the wrong pinion on! But I did put in a new arm, and the motor is running just as good as before!

Great thread guys.... I just raced the first Jimmy Babcock Off-Road race this weekend in Bakersfield, and was running a MVP in my B4. Before and during the 1st qualifier, it ran great (faster than a monster!) I took it apart between rounds, lightly cut the com and reseated the brushes. During the 2nd qualifier, it started to slow after less than a min. and the epoxy on the windings was melting off! I was running a 23 pinion with the stock spur. I probably ran 6 packs with this gearing and never had a problem. Any ideas guys?

No, nothing was in it. The armiture still rotated freely and there was a ball if resin by the time I pulled the can apart. But none of it stuck to the magnets, they were clean. I've seen this sort of thing happen to a P2K2 can and the magnets were trashed. The only thing I can think of is the gear mesh may have been too tight. Has this ever happened to anyone outhere? I don't want to loose my confidence in these cans.
