If the new motor comes with smaller rotor..is this an advantage on the motor apart from the weight? will power go down?

The new motors are touted as "designed by Oscar Jansen" and seem to be completely different than the old Feigao motors.
The length is at least a few millimeters shorter and the weight is 10g lighter - so these motors should offer pretty good car balance. Also, there is a trick little fan at the end of the rotor that is only the diameter of the magnet (not a huge fan like in the gen1 motors). I look forward to seeing how they run this weekend!

We're trying to figure out the difference between the "stock" and "race" versions...the rotors are actually the same diameter @ 12.3mm.

Damn! You guys have them in stock now and I just bought them from someone else for a lot more than your $74.95.

awesome, lightweight, smaller & smaller fan. I took the fan out of my older 7.5 because it snapped of at the shaft & it kept getting caught up on small rocks & the like. I havent heard any special features about these new motors til now, might have to grab a race motor instead of the SL motor...

I have two brand new 2008 Stock 10.5, that I will be selling, that arrived today! I had issue with two previous Orion & Peak 10.5 and they were replaced with the new models. haven't been running my TC5 so no need to keep them.

about the performance of the new Vortex 2008 Race motors, well all I can say is that for me, the throttle feeling/characteristics are very good, but it lacks top end speed. All pro drivers around me use the old Vortex motors without fan and with smaller rotors.

Let me see if I can answer a few questions. As for the 10.5 gearing I would run a 5.4 FDR with the timing mark inbetween the a and b tab. The new motor vs. the old motor it will take a few more race days to find out what the best setup is but I'll let you know. I had an origonal 10.5 that lasted about 6 months of 150* temps. I race in socal with some of the fastest racers in the country so I can say that is was a very fair test. I was never once motored down the stright and I even had a prolbem running into people coming on to the stright. So i WOULD SAY THAT THE OLD MOTORS ARE REALLY GOOD. They have great bottom and top end.A smaller rotor actually makes the motor more aggressive from what I have heard. I've never changed mine but everyone in my circle of racing friends are doing it constantly. The differance between the race motor and the stock motor is the # of winds. Mods are race motors and 10.5, 13.5 and 17.5 are stock.Wow, that was a lot hope that it helps.
