Default New motor 19T spec vs 15T

I had a 3 year old 15 turn Team Orion Rush motor that has had it-not running well anymore...I want to look into a new motor. Went into the LHS and they didn't have much to choose from. I was talking to a guy there and he said I'd get more speed out of a 19T spec than a 15T and I was wondering if that is true... At any rate I need a new motor so could anybody recommend a decent motor with a good price? I just drive the car in my street, so nothing serious just a good motor. (Also it needs to ship to Canada) Thanks.

I believe it is Trinity who makes Speed Gem motors. They are modified motors( that come in different winds) that have good performance and speed for a low cost. If you are using the motor as something to just play around with, a Speed Jew would be a good choice.

Your LHS is right on the money, today's brew of 19t motors are actually very high quality for the price and perform very well. At a few of the larger events last year drivers put runs down in 19t that were fast enough to make the mod a-main. No lack of speed there =)

Grabbing whatever is available locally would be a good move, with a little bit of maintenance you should be able to keep a 19t running well for quite some time. Great bang for the buck.

Take care,
Nick

I would recommend an Orion... cause they last so much longer than most without needing a rebuild. I'm guessing... that they have a budget line with the same round brush setup. I think there is one that is similar to the Revolution but without the fancy alum endbell.. for like $35 or so.

A 15T would run with a spec19 if you crank the timing up like the spec...

Some Orion's are excellent, like the ones with the aluminum endbells, but I once owned an Orion Rush motor in it was the crapiest motor I have ever had. I am sure a good current 19T would be better than a 15T Rush.

Has anyone tried a Speed Christian yet? I'd like to know how it compares to the Speed Jew...
