Default Whats the difference between these 2 Murfdogg motors??

Hey guys I was wondering if there was any difference between these 2 black murfdogg 17.5 motors, I know they have different solder tabs but is there a difference in performance or anything? Does one benefit from the other?

The second one I believe is the same as the original blue cans but just in black

Hopefully I can find this out as soon as possible, I tried searching but cant seem to find much.

Thank you!

You can always email Matt "murfdogg" directly. He's pretty prompt in his replies.

I had the one in the lower link, burnt it up on 3rd run with less gearing and less timing then any of my Trinity motors. Big disapointment imo not worth the money.

Probably because he suggests o to 4 degrees of timing on his motors. They are designed to run optimally with little or no timing, as opposed to trinity that wants the can maxed. They are great motors.

Saw a guy running one on the dirt this weekend in stock 17.5 buggy, let me say got one on order now after getting blow off track. From what he told me---- leave motor timing near zero or very slight advancement. Biggest challenge is gearing is different from other motors

Unfortunately I can't help with the 2 you are asking about, however I can tell you the Murfdogg motor I have runs like a raped ape. Good stuff, I don't think you can go wrong with his stuff.

Both motors are the same exact base design, but they are slightly different:

The first black motor pictured is the SYNERGY 1.1.
- This is a revised version of the early SYNERGY 1.0 Motor. These have LRP Style solder tabs, and different wire than the 1.0 motors, and have different Lazer etching on the can.

The least heat sensitive motor on the market, I have gotten one over 350F in destructive testing, and gone inside, resoldered the collector ring, replace the rotor, and won with it in competition.

The second pic is a limited edition 1.0 stealth motor.
- This has EPIC style solder tabs, and a lighter colored copper wire.

Wire makes about 2% more power, but is very heat sensitive.

We have won many races in various applications with both, but I would go for the SYNERGY 1.1 Motors over the 1.0 (hence why I made changes)...

Thanks,

Matt

Great explanation!! That is what I like about this place. A question gets asked and a great answer comes. I don't own Murfdogg but this response will make me think about it next time.
