Default CO27 27t competition or equivalents ???

Are there any motors out there that can run with or better than the CO27 ??
Seems the CO27 is THE motor of choice for stock touring cars for asphalt and carpet.

Stick with the CO27. It's been specifically designed for the higher ampearge batteries that we use today, and the can design/magnets are pretty good at resisting heat fade.

just my $.02

What you using the Epic X/XX black can motors ???

I have 2 older Fantom Epic silver cans (Trinity Xstar) and i put the one in my car and it was much faster/quicker than the CO27 and i could run silver can stock gearing at 45mm roll out.It was ballistic but then the magnet came loose in the can
the other one did the same with the magnet coming loose
When i checked after the car stopped on the track the motor wasnt overheated i just think the glue that held the magnets were fatigued of old age.

I use to run the Atlas stock motor and it would run with the CO27 easily but problem is it never was ROAR approved so go figure that out.

heheh, so the roar and monster are now much faster...... ok more critical to get gearing right, but here in UK using the Full throttle tuned Monsters ate hitting 38k rpm with f lines and green green springs for outdoor asphalt.

i raced a co27 thought it was pretty bad, no real zip.
then raced the monster and it was lively and fast with plenty of zip.

in the UK we cant use the co27 and xstock because the armatures dont meet the reg's.

I believe the Co27 is the best all-around motor but as mentioned it is not BRCA legal so in the UK the Monster stock seems to be a good motor.

I'm not a fan of the Epic ROAR stock personally as it seems to just run too hot compared to other motors.

I like the Epic X motors in the black can as they seem to be high revving but not as snappy out of the hole. The Monster stock motors are similar to the Epic X - High RPM but in my opinion, not as snappy off the line as a Co27.

If I could only run one motor it would be the Co27 but I run Epic X and Monster as well in Touring Car.
