Îtīs not sure yet if these motors are really any better.
Also there are only prototypes around. Itīs not for selling at the moment. Last week at the touringcar Euros in Austria they were not faster than the LRP, GM or Reedy TI motors. As a sidenote with the 12T motorlimit we have in Europe the Reedy KR are way slower than the TIīs.

Maybe overall the KR have more power than the TI but they seem to be very hard on the batteries. At least at the Euroīs in Austria people using KRīs had to gear down a lot for runtime so the Reedy drivers looked not very fast. But some of the Teamdrivers used their own TI-motors and these were very fast. For me the TI and the LRP also using TI cans looked the fastest to me. But you have to consider it was a very large track so maybe on smaller tracks itīs a different story. Next thing is these were teammotors. I donīt know if the production motors work the same.
In Germany rules say 2 magnets only so no KRīs.
if I had to buy a 12T motor right now I would go for a LRP or maybe an Orion.

I wouldn't go saying the Kr is slower than a Ti. Maybe there was something else going on that was slowing the Kr's down for the reedy team. I have two 10x1 Kr's and they are quite a bit faster than any Ti i've ever run (that includes an 8 turn and 10's too).
