It's a worked 19T motor. Very quick. I raced against my friends crappy 15T and I beat him like he was going in reverse. The Chameleon2 Pro, kinda pricy, but for the speed and performance you'll get from it, it'll be worth every penny. I got one, and it was FANTASTIC in my TC3. And also because my Dually's limiter was off..

You won't have to maintain it a lot. When people here say:

"modified motors,
they're talking like 10 turn and 12 turn motors. This is a 19 turn motor. The maintainence of a higher turn motor is less.

ok if you are running the stock spur gear on the t3 then you should use an 18tooth pinion. just to let you know. maybe a 19 but 18 to be safe
