Default 1/12 and 1/10 motors?

Ok I talked to my local hobby shop about races this year and asked them for the qualifications for 1/12 and 1/10 touring. They said for both that the motors they are pretty much using stock.

With the 1/12 what would be the choice of motor? And what is a common motor used for 1/12 everywhere?

Same questions for the 1/10 touring. Choice i should go with and what has been more common?

what i mean by more common, not just for my hobby shop, but what is most comen for onroad carpet all over? Thanks guys

For a stock motor id say just about everyone uses the CO27

I just bought a Team Br00d CO27. I haven't had a chance to run it. From what I hear it is a great motor.

Yeah, for stock, the C027 is the motor to use. I know a guy that has been running the X motor, or whatever that wierd one is called, in his 1/12th but it is a really high RPM motor and not easy to gear right.

The C027 is a nice blend of torque and RPM.

What if someone else is using like a 19-25 turn, campared to the co27, couldnt they have the advantage due to less turn motor or does the co27 compete???

To run in the stock class, you must use a 27 turn motor so while a motor with less turns could be faster, it wouldn't be allowed to run in the same class as a CO27.

I understand that part but "IF" It were to happen, will it compete or no?

That really depends on the quality of the motor and how well it is maintained. I've seen well tuned CO27s run faster than poorly maintained 19turn motors. I've also seen cheap 14turn motors that would be lucky to keep up with a CO27. Should you put a well tuned CO27 up against a well tuned and manufactured 19 turn motor (let's say a Komodo Dragon) with everything else being equal (driver, batteries etc) then I doubt the CO27 will keep up.
