You are going to get a variety of answers on this question based off personal opinions. I will say Team Br00d and EA Motors both did VERY well at the recent Snowbirds. I used Team Br00d and love them but you won't go wrong with EA. I'm not sure Axxis sells motors to the public yet, but have heard that the motors they currently do have are from EA.

Axxis does indeed get their motors from EA, but they then do their own set of modifications to them(still within the stock rules).
Ask around your track for personal experiences with different companies. There are some companies who just do all the well known tricks, and there are others who do that plus their own set of changes.

Insert sponsor here - Axxis Racing

You really can't go wrong with a motor from any of the big names out there: RIP, EA, Express, Putnam, Brood, etc. They all use the same base motor, it's all in the tuning.

Get the one with support in your country. Sydney, Australia has a big Hyperform crew that can help you out in maintaining your motors. I agreed that others are as good but you don't get track support after.

What track support could one motor company offer that another couldn't? Not a valid reason for choosing one over another in my humble opinion. Just choose a tuner that has a good reputation and has results to back that reputation up. My .02

Tell that to the guys that I built/rebuilt almost 300 motors for at the snowbirds including Barry Baker, Craig Dreschler, Juho Levanan and a few other pro-drivers. I dont think I turned away a single person all week even if they were wearing another companies shirt.

Track support here in Australia from motor tuners basically does not exist. Majority of people buy there stuff from online shops and that is it. Luckily here in Sydney, Hyperform has a strong following due the the track side support that users get.

I m not saying others don't offer them but not here in Australia

Agreed...but to have a tuner support a track means alot to people that buy a certain Product. I help all day long with gearing questions, spring combos and more.. My e-mails are answered within 24hours and alot of time within an hour if I hear the chime..anyone on here that has ever asked or bought from us know that.
