I have seen one run (a 10x2) and it is VERY fast and the driver says it goes longer between rebuilds than a lot of mods.

I saw jason Chang from Team AE kick a$$ with one of these motors last weekend.

I think these motors will do for modified what the Monster stock did for stock motors....

Nice to hear they last longer than most mods between rebuilds

Are they particularly high rpm or torquey? Are they very specific on what range of gearing they like?

I've been running a 12x2 for a few weeks now, and its incredibly smooth. With a mid-sized com you'd think that it would have lower torque, but it has 4 magnets which makes up for it, the fields dont overlap.

Combined with a 64 pitch spur/pinion the car is very quiet and accelerates nicely.

I'm running 128/32 and its got great power in the corners and fairly quick on the straight.

You can't go wrong with the Kr as your first mod motor.

Yeah, the 10x2 is out. When I bought my 12x2 the shop had sold thier last 10x2 the day before. You just have to keep an eye out cuz they are becoming popular.

KR are the way to go. I heard Trinity also has a 4 Magnet Motor coming out soon. We will have to see what they are like. Hope they are not like the Flatliners.... I like the P94's better then the Flatliners.

What ever happened to the V2 from orion? hahahahahahahaha
