That's a 36 deg. motor not a 30 deg motor. There were 24 deg of timing set in the can and 12 deg of timing in the arm. The 30 deg motor was a round can with a short stack armature and it was fast.

the P2k2 is a great motor choice. The MVP would also be another great choice but you need the trimmed brushes to get the most power out of it.

But the MVP is better built than the P2k2 and has much better magnets that will last longer.

If you are into getting the most out of your motors, go to this site:

www.bigjimracing.com

read up on what he says and buy his book, has great info.

If you want a ready to go motor for racing, I believe team Paradigm has the P2k2 stock motor tuned to there specs in stock. its more than buying it from say an online shop but they really get the motors to put down the power.

MVP's only run well with big comms..after the motor has some time on it, and the comm gets smaller, they tail off at the end of the race a LOT. The Orion/Peak stock motors are the same way.

I don't agree with half of the things Big Jim says on his website and in the book. Stock motors are a grab bag; you either are going to get one that absolutely flies, one that won't get out of its own way, or one that's middle of the pack. There is simply no way to make sure they will all be the same, and no amount of work you can do to a stock motor (within the rules) can make a slow stocker into a fast one.

And with a mod motor, you simply put in a faster wind if you need more power.

toofast - Actually..I think you're right. Weren't the 30 deg. motors the ones with the flat sides on the can?

"Weren't the 30 deg. motors the ones with the flat sides on the can?"

The 30 deg motors were pre/flatcan. They were round just like the Old Midnight motors, but were pink just like the 36 deg.

"But the MVP is better built than the P2k2 and has much better magnets that will last longer."

The magnets all come from the same place.

From what I understand, the magnets are not the same grade as the trinity motor still uses the low grade magnets and the MVP uses the C-4 magnets that hold up much better.

I haven't had a problem with my MVP, it works great with the tuning options Jim recommends.

It says on Hobby People online that they carry the MVP, but my lhs which IS a Hobby People says they dont carry them... I'll probably end up with the p2k2 pro unless someone else has another suggestion?
