sorry bud. should take it serious. 17.5 BL are torquey. i've heard that murf dogg have got bulk and the new orange/black(viper) have got da goods too.

i've got a Tekin redline and it seems quick on a B4.

Got an LRP x12 17.5 seems good too but it's new and the gearing on the HB Cyclone D4 is gettin' tuned.

In all, i've heard no real complaints about slow ones but.......

lmao...not really, it's my un-biased actual opinion...haha!

no but really man, out of the motors I have ran in the past, The Orion was the fastest/most efficient for spec stock buggy....but you are right bro....they are all fine and will all perform well, it just depends what you are looking for....the Orion is super smooth and linear, has good mid rpm pull and a seemingly endless top-end....I would always advance the external timing on the can to the max

I have run several brands of motors and I will not put any of them down as many of the main stream companies produce good motors. I prefer the D3 motors myself because they run cool and produce great power.

My Trinity D3's are awesome. I run the 12.5mm high torque rotors too. They make the motor run cooler, give awesome bottom end, and the top end is as fast as any.

I run a Trinity D3 17.5 in my 2 racers. It works really well, runs cool and can be boosted to keep up with just about anyone on the track. Pretty good deal for a $65 motor.
