stock motors are 27 turn fixed timing

mod motors and 8 to 26 turn adjustable timming

turn = number of times the wire is wraped around the arm

mod faster more matience

stock less matience more people racing stock

i like both stock is a blast to run a great to learn how to tune to get all you can out of it

mod well it's just fast and a blast

i would say if you are going to race get what everyone is racing more if you are going for bashing heck go for the speed

hope this helps

i use both stock and mod and they both have about the same amount of maintenance, if anything the stock requires more.

mod=more speed less runtime more $
stock=less speed more runtime less $

it all depends on what you like better and your budget


if you go mod I recommend a p-94
for stock I recommend a monster stock

that all depends on the motor designer not whather stock or not stock and mod all depends on the number of winds or copper around the stacks (poles)

Right, stacks are the proper term for that part of the armature, & in stocks they cut away some(or alot) of it to gain some more rpm(but it sacrifices torque). The more they cut off, the higher the motor's top end will likely be. In stocks they have to do that since they can't change the winding, while with mods, you can use most ANY wind to get the kind of power & top end you want, so it's more normal to keep the stacks completely intact....

Orion and Trinity make good motors, both stock and mod. You can visit their sites.

What are you planning to do, racing or bashing? For bashing, get a fast one.

For racing, I highly recommend you start out with a stocker. Stock class usually have most people into it, meaning more fun. Besides, there's much more into racing, than pure power, so start out with something that is easier to control.

Yea get a stock motor and run that till u can control the car without crashing much.

Then when u feel u are u ready and are one of the main challengers get yaself a Modified.

Then u can run both classes if ya have 2 cars.

Monster stock

or

Krypton sounds good.
