Good note on the size of the com's.

Something else to watch, as I've see this several times on CO-27s lately.

When cutting the com, watch the first cut. Watch for one lamination being cut and not the others. This is a sign of it coming loose from the base material. We have a trintiy sponored driver who tosses me his used up motors for parts to repair other racers motors, Many Cudos CATO!! Anyway, even he had one separate. Once this happens the motor is almost toast. If there is enough thickness of copper, it can run, but days are numbered.

I have been using the Co27 and found it a good replacement for the Monster. Putnam is my choice of tuner and have found their motors to be excellent.

Give the CO a try, you might find the gearing is slightly different to the monster so check the motor temperature and adjust for the track.

Roar motor is the best
it just works every where
i can get the monster & co27t to work but for varied application the ROAR is my motor choice (so far)

Hey Guys,

Stephen is right - the X stock fills the same niche that the EPIC ROAR used to. However, I'm pretty sure the ROAR's are still in production. Trinity usually keeps the popular motors around for quite a while - you can still get Green Machine's, P2K's, etc. if you like them.

My 2 cents is that the CO-27 is the first stock motor to have in your collection because it's the most versatile and tolerant of gearing mistakes and so forth. From there, you might want to look at adding a higher RPM motor like the ROAR or X for the situations that demand it.

That said, the EPIC ROAR is a more versatile motor than a lot of people have given it credit for. I ran it pretty much exclusively before the new motors came out and it did a great job on all kinds of different tracks for me.

For all the guys in the UK, the choices are a bit limited as the new motors are not BRCA approved. EPIC ROAR is probably a good way to go. Elsewhere, CO27 is a good starter, and maybe add an X or ROAR to experiment with on large tracks.
