If your just bashing I would have gone with a machine wound 17-20 turn modified and left the timing between 0-10 deg. You will get comparable speed and less battery drain......

Both motors run great, but P2K2's are a little better for truck. Monsters must be geared very low to have the torque required to push a truck along.

That said..I've seen plenty of people use Monsters in their trucks with good success. Start with your truck geared at 15/87 or 16/87, and go from there.

If you are just starting out racing, don't worry so much about your motor. Focus on getting around the track for a whole race without flipping....once you can do that consistantly then worry about it....your Monster will be just fine...but like Aaron said gear it lower.

Mike, I got your 16t pinion, its in my hand waiting for you (in case nobody figured it out, i know him )

Mike I hear from some guys that the Reedy MVP is also a good stock motor for truck, but something bad like it wears quickly or something... i dont remember

In a completely unbiased opinion, I would NEVER spend my own money on an MVP. Reedy team drivers don't even use that thing in stock races, there's no reason for you to buy one.

MVP's and Orion's Core stock motor start to run inefficently once the comm gets smaller (after being cut several times) and tail off at the end of the race.

THATS what I was looking for, they Tail off... thanks aaron for correcting me

in my thread about the pink Monster Stock Junior pro 4 someone was telling me to run an MVP, but since you are a Pro, I'd take your advice over theirs, so my motor for my XXXT is going to be a P2K2 Pro

P2K2's work awesome. I really like gearing at 18/86, but 17/86 would be a better place to start.

mike

for family hobbies Its a small track so I'd go with a really torquey ratio, so maybe (aaron correct me if i'm wrong) 87t spur and...oh... 16t pinion?

also mike off topic: I fixed the Pullstarter

rc10t3 - Like I posted before.. 15 or 16/87. Since Family Hobbies is small, probably 15/87 to start.

losifromhell - 18/90 moves the motor too far back. Try 17/86 to start.
