Default What kind of motors are good

what kind of stock and mod motors are good, i don't mean like "trinity", I'm talking about Axiom, Putnam, Integy, Fantom, etc. I mean the companies that make motors after they've been already made

thanks!

well the can is pretty much a choice of 3, TOP, Epic and Yokomo.

then anyone else can pretty much do the armature themselves.

The only stock motors I run now are off-the-shelf Trinity Monster Stock Pro's... No one ever says my car is slow :P Why pay $40 + for someone to put a sticker on a motor?

Here in the Mid-West we run Light Speed Motors. Very fast and reliable. Mark does a good job of tuning the motors he does.

bigjim - tunes motors really well. Tunes any Stock motor for $22.00 (that includes the shipping price back to you, in the US of course). I believe he sell motors as well, already tuned for about $38.00

Fantoms are good motors also, haven't tried the Axioms though, I will in a few months. I want to see how my Monster holds up

Axiom Racing Motors....end of story.

Their stock brushes are the best on the market. I'm not just saying that cuz I run for them, it's because i've never seen the results they give with any other brush...including the new trinity cross cut.

Axiom tuned stock motors are always fast.
