So since the RPM and the KV are higher on the second motor than the first does this mean its better? This may sound foolish but I never seen one of these brushless motor testers.

If they are both 17.5s, only one reason possible: the timing was more advanced on the Thunder Power motor (either electronically: esc, or mechanically: position of sensor assembly).

Read above: that was a tangerine to watermelon comparison.

Those numbers were achieved with each motor's timing cranked up as high as they will go. On the track, obviously the difference is not much. The TP is quick in my B4.1 though.

Reedy hands down. I drove two of my buddies trucks with different motors and I noticed a pretty big difference in power. Then one of them drove mine and couldnt believe the difference.

Iv never seen a reedy as fast as my fantom motors. Close, but no cigar.
