Default Best 13.5T Motor

What is the best 13.5T Motor for Blinky Racing in 1/10th Touring Cars? R1 V21, Trinity X Factor, Hobbywing G3R? What are your thoughts please.

My thoughts are that I have had my rear whooped so many times by better drivers that have older, lesser, slower motors than me that I don't care anymore...

^^^ This. The apex speed of the last corner is much more important than what motor you have.

​​​​​But to answer your question any modern 13.5 will get the job done. Even last generation motors like the monster max and v16 are plenty quick.

Too many variables affect the performance to just look at motor alone.

If you do 't already have a decent one, I like the Fantom or the R1. If you already have something about that good, put a fresh rotor and bearings in. The SMC lowrider is nice, if you get one with a good rotor.

No that is what everyone answers this question with, improve driving better lines etc. What I meant is when looking for the 1% which is the best motor, is there a difference between a standard hobby wing G3R vs a R1 V21 for instance?

i had a R1 V21 and i was disappointed by him, and a friend had one and it was a killer.
i have a fantom now and it is very good , if i have to change i ll take a G3R
Xfactor is good at least like the others but i don't like their mentality

I'm running the X Factor Team Spec (not certified), and its as quick as the R1, Team Powers V3 and Zombie EVO motors in the opposition. It runs really cool, I could hold my fingers on it after a 6 min heat, no problems. And it fits nicely in my T4 '20.
I'm not a huge Trinity fan, but I can't fault it.
