The orbital is a machine wound mod motor. It isn't as fast, but it does the job. The core is a hand wound mod motor. All the pros used hand wound motors and they are needed at the highest levels of competition. They are usually balanced and some other things are done to them.

Hudy Modifieds are from Team Orion, but they are production motors.

Handwound armatures and wound tighter and usually use alot less wire to get the same winds which makes the motor more efficient and spin up faster....
