what about Banzai?

i did run for banzai motors for like 4 years...and they make a heck of horsepower.there just not to good for turing applications....decent off-road motors though....
yeah, thats what i heard, that they are great for offroads, especially 4WD buggies, but not that great for 1/12. I do like their name though I was planning on getting a Fantom when i go electric a year ago, but then i lost some interest in them, as not manypeople have success with them. I guess the custom ordered ones must be pretty good, but im not sure if they really tune them fully.

Thought i'd add my little piece in here.

In short... a good motor from one company is going to be just as good, as a good motor from another company.

In the end you're better off choosing the company with better service and value.

I've used heaps, Axiom, Express, Putnam, Lightspeed, Brood and factory motors... and the best of the bunch from each of them are comparible.

However, i've recently made the switch to Team Brood and solely use their motors in both Stock and 19t and i couldnt be happier.

I got fantastic service from Desolas, keeping in mind i'm from Australia so it was an international deal, the motors are fantastic- all of the lot i bought are weapons and everything was great value.

So... i would highly reccommend Team Brood.

Happy shopping!

Robbie

Go for a tuner who offers: value, quality, customer service, and fast turn around times.

I found a tuner at Insane R/C Motorsports who offers just that. Contact Garry Nelson at InsaneRC.com for more info. If you contact him thru our local forum, you will receive an extra discount for all 757Holeshot members. Get a quote and receive a motor for an inexpensive price with excellent quality. Compare and see the difference. Let us know of your findings and what you end up choosing.

The forum and website is listed below under my signature.
