Default Stock Motor For a 1/12 Scale

Well Last year was my first year running 1/12 scale. This year i want to try to take my racing program to the next level. I bought a Hudy comm lathe and now i am looking for a new motor. I am running stock. I am looking at 2 motors right now they are the Trinty Mystery stock and the Trinty Co27. Also what are the advantages of buying a co27 from a company like express motorsports or full thortle motorsports. Lastly what brushes should i buy.
Thanks
John

You got to know that many people are going to suggest switching to brushless 17.5 in a 1/12, so let me be the first.

CO27 if your staying with brushed........Advantage to the motor builders is the set up. They will center the brush hoods and maybe zap the magnets plus true the comm. Saving you some work.

I was going to try the Mystery Stock this year, but with Cleveland going all brushless I decided not to.......

Best advice is to read the forums on motor tuning (brushes and springs) and other building tips and do it yourself....You bought a lathe and truing the comm is the main thing to start with.

Good luck

The usual 767 or E brush 3911's work best. Spring combinations is important. You might want to post a comment with the respective company threads located in the Team and Company Discussions::

I ran some brushless last year and i am using it in my asphalt touring car right now and it is great but i want to give working on my own motors a try. I enjoy working on the cars alot.
Any way i forgot to ask about this in my original post what motor springs. I am running carpet and i think i read somwhere that i want a lite spring?
Thanks

more spring tension increases rpm, less tension increases torque.
