Team Orion Core Stock RS Dyno Tuned

What do u all think of this motor. Im thinking of getting this as my first motor as ive heard that it is very good.

The other motor would be the Integy MVP Pro V9.5.

What do u all reckon on these.

Thanks for ya help. This forum is excellent

I would have to disagree to those who have given the Core good reviews. I tried the motor in numerous races and couldn't really find any strengths in it's powerband, it always felt flat, and its torque was unimpressive. I'd also stay away from the MVP, I haven't heard many good things about it and have heard it is prone to overheating. For super tight tracks, I'd recommend the P2k, as it is the stock motor torque king, and for medium to big tracks, I'd recommend a Monster Stock, because that motor can be tuned to RULE on tracks that are a bit more open. Good luck to your racing pursuits!

I'd go with teh monster stock at any track. This motor has lots of rpm and still has good torque. We run at a tight and small track and that's the only thing you can run in the expert class to be competitive now.

Try a Team 1 Monster Stock motor: http://www.team1rc.com/shop/

Those are the ones I run and I have had great success with them. You might also try tuned Monster Stock motors from Axiom, Pro Match, Fantom or others.

If you're trying to save a bit of money, just get a basic Monster Stock from your LHS. They should be in the $27-30 range.
