Default Team full throttle motors

Has anybody experience with these motors? I run now V2 motors Surikarn edition but I don't like them. I now want to try the checkpoint motors because I ve heard many good things about them (less maintenance ) I turned today 40yrs and age comes with laziness

Happy Birthday...

I use the 19T Checkpoint in my offroad cars and have no complaints. Tonnes of power and I can get about 20 runs from them before I need to cut the com and replace brushes.

i haven't had any problems with horsepower from bill. they all run strong right out of the box. i know for a fact he's tuning them. don't know where the relabeling rumor came from and as far as the motor with no brushes...it sounds like a packaging mistake.

any motor, any brand, from any tuner will perform like a dog if it isn't geared properly.

sorry you are unhappy. talk to bill and discuss your situation. i'm sure he'd be glad to help you out.

As for "relabeling" motors, this is the story. Most motors come basically the same way. They come to Bill's (and other tuners) workshops as teardowns (no stickers brushes, springs, and certainly not cut round or with the hoods lined up).

Bill and every other tuners does as he/they feel fit to make a motor ready for sale. If there was a problem with a particular item bought from Bill, i strongly suggest you email him to resolve it.

in case you wanted to read in english.

If there is a problem with any product purchased from Full Throttle please contact either me or Bill right away. If something is defective or we missed something, then we will rectify the situation.

Thanks,

Full Throttle has strong motors... Don't listen to jibberish from anyone who says otherwise.

Mike is correct about our Mod motor program. As of right now, we do not have the correct facilities to wrap our own motors. Relizing the market for these motors is there, we decided to get our motors from a reputable source, something like 7 national titles in a year . Our main focus is on 27T stock and 19T spec motors.

Thanks
Bob

Maybe hes the one who signed on Andy's name and posted that stuff. Oh well, its sad he talks crap under a screen name. I guess talking trash on the internet is the "cool" thing to do for tough guys.

Don't you love how people do this crap! Probably someone who sells someone elses motors or maybe even a competitor.
