Josh when someone answers that quick dont always take their advice.Kidding Aaron knows whats up.

Is it going in your XXXT?

Is the track really big and fast or is it small and kinda tight?

Is there a pic of the track on the internet?

Do you know how to tune a motor?

Certain aftermarket companies actually tune for a certain type of racing.

*NOTE* Try not to practice with your actual RACE motor.Buy a spare if money permits.
If you DO happen to practice with your RACE motor then you will wanna stop practicing at 6-8 minutes instead of running the full pack.Running the motor past 6 or so minutes can overheat the brushes and damage them.It will also overheat the magnets causing damage there as well.

If you can answer the questions above we can not only help you find a motor but also give you some gearing guidelines.

Hope this helps.

i would go for the p2k2 of even a p2k for truck the p2k2 will be fast on all tracks with gearing changes. i have never liked a monster in truck i am a guy that likes alot of torque for the whole race. they fall off in truck no matter what you gear them at. they are great in a buggy though or a touring car or a 1/12. get a p2k and gear it at 17/86 or 18/88 to start with

The new Intgey Matrix works great in a TC(for you off road guys..touring car.. )The loads for a TC and off road truck are close,On a big track even for a truck.. team_ ass.4ever is imho 100% right.
