Default motors...

keeping it simple...

mods are faster then stock
mods have adjustable timing
mods are more expensive

one really isn't better than the other. I just depends what you want to do. If you are racing then you need to decide if you want to race mod or stock. I race stock simply because my driving skills are not up to the task of controlling a mod powered car. If you just bash and want to beat your friends racing down the street then a cheaper mod may be for you.

Hope this helps
Matt

Default mods..

also if you are just bashing i would pick up a machine would mod motor instead of handwound.

they are a little cheaper.

stock :
27 turns
fixed timing
bushing


mod :
any turns from 5 to 27 turns
u can set the timing (sometimes noton cheap modifieds)
bushing ou bearing
handwound or machine wound
cheapest mod is cheaper than a stock

before choosing one, see which kind of rac you want to attend, if u are a beginner go for stock it will be a better school for driving, you can use mods for practice (i heard you said u have several motors)

read carefully this page, it will help you a lot to how a motor works

my first car was just a crap (tamiya super astute!)
