As a counter point, running a mod motor doesn't have to be like dancing with the devil. For a looooong time, I've stayed in the top 3 running a 9.5. I've let plenty of stock guys drive my cars and the first thing out of their mouth is what motor is in it. The answer is that it doesn't matter. "Shut up, and drive it." In 2WD buggy, the throttle should always be used with caution (except for that race winning drag down the straight!). They're surprised at how docile a "mod" car can be if you treat the throttle with a little respect.

To the OP: Why not try a couple of different motors? You can get the grey can Hobbyking's for $30 and they are plenty fast. Maybe get a 13.5 and a 9.5 so you can experiment a little bit. If you feel the need for a brand name motor, at least you haven't dropped $100 on one and you'll probably know what will work for you at that point. A boosted 13.5 can be super fast if geared properly.

thanks, thats a good POV from someone coming from a 17.5.. i just honestly dont like the whole stock concept. I can try a few different motors to see what does good.

For me its not that I cant drive a 7.5 its that I don't like too. Jumping over the tripple and hitting it on the down is a lot harder with a 7.5. I experimented with all different turns before settling on the 8.5. Maybe try a Novak or a Thunder Power motor and buy a few stators. I would do that before buying hobbyking.

what would be a good gearing set-up for a 9.5t motor?

With a Tekin gen2, I was running 75/23 with 0-5* of timing on the can. It came off around 120 and there was plenty of room to both gear up, and increase mechanical timing.

Amain says differently, and I think/know Tower is wrong

Bearing Dimensions: front: 4x13x5mm rear: 1/8x3/8x5/32"This is from tekins site:
Shaft Dimensions: 3.2mm (1/8") x 15.3mm for ALL of the gen2 motors

Wow, before you drop a hundy on a new motor, why don't you use my spare LRP 10.5 for a weekend and see how you like it. You may want more motor and I would hate to see you waste money when a $30 tacon from hobbypartz is all you need for now.
