My personal opinion at this time is that the Aluminum endbells are poorly designed fluff. They suffer a myriad of problems which include: a poorly retained endbell bearing which can cause destruction of the brush hoods and comm tabs(Orion top). It is hard to inspect the brushes for complete breakin (Orion top). Easily shorted endbells because the endbell material is conductive and relies only on a thin layer of epoxy or some similar material around the brush hood for insulation. Poor access to the brush springs which makes tuning difficult. Hard to solder on leads and brushes for the lack of tabs on a couple of the styles, and worst of all the performance is not better than the old style Trinity Cobalt on our large outdoor track. Man they look good in a photo though.

Well, it's extremely hard to argue with Mr. Stranahan. I like the fact that mine runs a LITTLE cooler and there isn't as much maintenence involved. But when you do have to cut the com or whatever, it's a complete pain in the arse. Also, there is another thread on here somewhere about the shorting of the endbells. With only the anodizing and the thin layer of epoxy, it doesn't take much to short them.

The ones I've had the best luck with amongst the new crop of endbell styles would definitely be the O'Donnel Checkpoints. They run like they're a turn lower than what they are, get faster as you use it and you can run the things for a good 20+ runs before needing to cut the comm. Best mod motor on the market for sure.

I've never had any of the issues above with any of my Revolution/Vantage motors. I love mine! I never have to work on them, they run strongly and once you learn how to work on them its a snap (I believe DC Motorsports has a good article on their website on how to work on the motors properly)

Orion motors are the top choices by on-road world champions.

Revolution V2 Atsushi Hara is used by champions Atsushi Hara, Andy Moore and Surikarn.

Orion-Tamiya V2 Transpeed MS is used by champion Marc Reinhard

Orion V2 Juka Steenari is used by champion Juka Steenari

These V2 endbell motors speaks for themselves on performance.
