Default Looking for a good stock motor

I want to start racing soon, and since I'm pretty new to the hobby I figured stock would be the place to start. I have a losi xxx-s. What would be a really good stock motor to get? I dont want to spend more than 40 dollars either. I was planning on getting a monster stock, but realized I never really researched any other motors and I want to keep my options open before I jump to conclusions.

I've heard paradigm motors are good but not sure?

Any comments or suggestions would be awesome.

You really can't go wrong with a monster, I see them rip the track up each week and come off just warm, my Mvp can easily stay with them but it comes off the track blazing hot. If you do get a monster I'd say start around a 7.2 overall gear ratio.

Well the track that I plant to race at allows a lot of speed, no really tight corners, you can probably go almost half speed the whole time and then full thru the straightaway and the next corner because it's a big turn. Does anyone know anything about paradigm motors?

I run Paradigm motors, they are the fastest motor I have ever had. Run the monster stock based motor, gear it at a 6.9-7.1 for the large track, and it will tear the other guys up

Hey i run 2 different motors i run a Axiom motor i got from a freind of mine and also a Team 1 motor i got from a competitor and great freind who paints bodyies for me and they're based on the Monster Stock and i gear mine at a 7.4-7.6 now and they are awesome and also you can start tuning them by using different brushes or mayb make some cuts in them and different springs. well thats about it and good luck.

Guys;

The Monster Stock really responds well to 'Putnam' Brushes. Better than any other brand I've tested so far.

Well the gearing really depends on the track, I've heard of people running 5.8's on large tracks, just start around 7.2 and work from there.

Hey Randman!

Are you referring to Monster Pro based Paradigm motors or the Monster Version only? Anyway, what brushes and springs go well with Paradigm stock and Modified motors to get the best mix of rpm and torque? Also, what modified paradigm do you suggest for asphalt, medium sized track?

Thanks!
