9-turn is probable the fastest motor. hhmm, why put a fastest motor on your TC4? a fast motor is not always advantageous, it also depends on your chassis set-ups, fine tuning, aerodynamics, gear ratio, etc... a fast motor is advantageous on drag racing, sprints, long straightaways...but if you run on technical tracks, it wont be...

An alcohol fueled 454 ci with blower, but you would have to beef up the springs j/k

Seriously, what kind of racing are you doing? Are you looking for the most powerful motor that you can wheel around a track or merely a drag race powerplant?

I believe hara and some of those guys run 6 turns in their TC's but you have to have them geared perfect and...um...god, to make them work for you. The fastest guy on the track isn't necessarily the one with the craziest motor...although it does help! haha.....

if you're a newb... get a 27T stock motor... start the gearing with the stock 72T, and a 24 or 25T pinion and you'll be set...

run the track and fine tune your gearing from there...

you need different gears for different motors because they have different characteristics. The lower wind (# of turns) a motor gets they tend to produce more RPM at the expense of low end torque. Because of this you have to choose the right spur/pinion gear combo to make use of the characteristics of the motor and not damage it by over or under gearing.

ok thanks now i understand...ok but one question.why a 27t motor? would it be better then to stick with my engine? is my engine a good one for track races? I had 2 things in mind that i wanted to buy, first the engine and second a fully adjustable suspention...the factory team one..

what "engine" motor do you currently have?

tracks run specific classes... most notably 27T stock, 19T spec, and modified...

if your motor isnt a 27T stock or a spec 19T, then you will be running in modified class...

at most tracks modified class is reserved for seasoned veterans who race at very high levels...

TC4 rtr? Comes with the 15T Associated Motor. Not a very fast motor. Get a Good 27 turn stock motor and it will be as fast or even faster.

Engine you put gas in. Motor is electric. FYI

Then why does an outboard motor have an engine?
And why is Detriot the motor city?
