Unfortunately, neither the Stockstar or Challenger willbe approved in time for the Carpet Nats. The deadline for approval and listing is the 29th, and we will not thave the required quantities available to meet this deadline and get the motors on the approved list. We actually have motors in stock (minus packaging), but not enough to fulfill the approval requirement.

The LRP 13.5 and 17.5 ar at the motor lab and should be approved assuming there are no complications. The LRP 10.5 has also been sent for approval and its listing is merely a formality. Expect to see all of them on the list by the deadline.

It won't be that late. We will begin shipping large quantities this week.

Brian Jucha who runs for AE was testing these at our track, and they looked good. I know that he was really able to run out the back door, as the lap times were almost identical to the start of the run. He had a good CO27 that lost a lot more at the end of 5 minutes. Lap times were very close otherwise.

I tested these in the early prototype stages and some of the production units...both on the dyno and lots of track testing. These are great motors and people are going to love them. They produce great power with awesome RPM. Its the best of all worlds with low maintenance as well!

What kind of gear ratio were you using compared to a CO27? Anyone else that has tested this motor feel free to chime in.

Its really a shame this motor is comming out now, and took so long for a MVP replacement. While I think there is plenty of room for both brushed and brushless motors, it seems everyone at the track is brushless now, including me (retired my lathe/motor tools). Damn, 2 years ago would have been nice and I would have picked one up, looks really good.

Racing MVP's in stadium trucks, I usually have 1 or 2 less teeth on my pinion than what everyone else is running. Rick can probably correct me if I'm wrong but if memory serves the MVP was originally slated as a touring car motor, so it put out a lot of RPMs but lacked torque. Solution: shorter than usual gearing, along with a few little tweaks and some massaging on the workbench.

Unfortunately the MVP was before my time here, and I have no experience with it or the recommended gearing. From what I do remember, it was a high RPM motor so would require fewer teeth on the pinion.

Also, large quantities of Stockstars and Challengers are being shipped today.

Just want to put in a plug for the MVP. I always thought they were a fine performing motor. I have used mine MANY times in stock buggy.
