Default Stock Motor Guru's: Advice Needed!!!

Hey everyone,

I'm after some new motors for a race this weekend and i'm deciding between the CO27 or the X-stock, or one of each seeing as i'm buying two motors.

I've heard nothing but great reports about the CO's, so im happy to get those, i'm curious about the x-stock though, everyone says its more of an RPM motor... which suits the track i'll be racing at as its big and open and flowing, but how to they compare to the CO27.

Do the X-stocks lack MAJORLY in power and torque???

DO they rev THAT much higher, or just a little???

and also, i have an Epic Roar stock motor in my box, which is the predecessor to the x-stock, however it doesnt rev greatly at all... in fact most of my monsters rev higher than it.

Can you give me any tips to get it going better???

Should i attack the comm and cut it down to a certain size to get it to perform???

Thats also whats keeping me from buying the X-stock, seeing as the Roar stock was supposed to be an RPM motor and mine doesnt have great RPM, i'm thinking that maybe the X-stock could turn out along the same lines.

Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Robbie

xray racer The Roar stock is the same as the X Stock, it's a higher RPM lower torque motor. With the heavier weight and constant acceleration needed in touring the motor is more suited to oval then roadcourse.

the X is better at flowing tracks, it has more RPM.
the Co is better for tight tracks.

w/ the X you CANNOT gear it the same as a Co. you need to drop 1-2 teeth on the pinion b/c the motor porduces less torque.

the Co you can have a pinion w/ 1-3 more teeth than the X because it has more torque.

dont count out the X. depending on your driving style, it might be faster.

Hello xray racer! you already know the difference in the motors, but the x-stock is supposed to be a replacement for the monsters, they have the tourqe of the monsters, but with about 2 to 3 more thousand rpms, they changed the arm a little, that is the only difference other than the color. By my testing the x stock can be the fastest motor on onroad or oval it just depends on how big your tracks are! Same goes for the co motors they are best suited for small tight tracks, oval or onroad! on tunning your monster stock just put some lightspeed 3910 brushes or trinity 4499 in it and you will be fine, run red springs, and bend back the positive a little to give it a little more tension, as for the size of the comm, i wouldnt sacrifice the size for just a little gain in power, but it will make its most power between 290 and 280 if you messure in inches on a mick! If you have any more questions just pm me or send me an email at the address below! Thanks Lightspeed

Actually the X stock is the replacement for the Roar Epic stock...that's why its not on the Trinity site anymore. But everything else you stated is correct. These motors run extremely well in TC's and 12th scale onroad as well as oval

Anybody uses comm. sticks here? good investment?
Should I even bother cleaning the comm. in between run as opposed to skimming it after 3 or 4 runs?
