Go down the page to the May/June 2002 section. It's called the Yokomo/Reedy "Cobalt" Stock Motor.

From the looks of the dyno #'s, the monster stock will still be producing faster times on the track. Hopefully it will be out soon to prove that wrong.

Dyno's arn't the track and from the track tests it's sounding good. When it comes out I'll be getting one to replace my MVP.

There is so much hipe about the MS and how fast it is, but none of it is worth a pinch is you can't support that with a properly setup car and decient driving.

I think I am going to get a few of those Big Jim tuned revenge of the monster based epic motors, should be fast... Have to get a few of the cobalt motors when they are released as well.

I dont really think it can be a ton faster than the monster though, hopefully like the MVP, it will have a ton of torque for short tracks, and you can gear up for long tracks.

The New Yokomo Stocks just cam out in Japan this month and they are quite a bit qicker than the last set of stocks that yokomo had last year.......some thing that is kind of new for the Yokomo stock is the bearings that it uses... grooved and serated for less contact/friction... .the last set of 23t Yokomo stocks that I had were turning about 30000~31000 rpm... the new ones are on average 32000~33300+ and getting beter the more I cut the com

I`ll have to post a [email protected] of the bearing for you all to see later

Please do post pics of the whole motor, I am interested to see what it looks like.

Has anyone run Big Jim's motors in the past, I am definately going to give them a try, just wondering if anyone else has?

Default there is a guy who runs a Big Jim MVP

at my track and it is noticably (sp) better...but he also spends time tunning where as some of the other guys don't....

as for release date for the new stock....who knows..I preordered in december thinking it was going to be out for feb or march hahaha it isn't even in production yet...Mike reedy keeps fighting with the manufacturer (Japs) on how they can mass produce the motor to be up to the same specs as what the prototypes are.....Plus I think there attention has turned away from the stock motor cause of the KR mod and now the 19 turn spec.....seems like they have their hands full so us stock guys will have to keep racing the monster.....

oh ya this motor has been in the works for like 1.5 to 2 years already so that just shows they are in no rush

You can tune a motor youself if you have a dyno and alot of different springs/brushes to try. It will take time and you'll probabely end up spending more on different brushes/springs then you would just buying a tuned motor.

The difference is Big Jim actually knows how to tune it. This guy's life is R/C motors, none of us can say that about eachother.
