So please stop spending time trying to seek out the fastest motor and spend some quality time at the track driving and setting you car up properly and you may be surprized how "fast" your motor can be.

Yes, I have watched a couple of you drive.

You're dead nutz on that but if you haven't been to Seattle Indoor Raceway, you don't have a clue

I just recently aquired an LRP and yes it is awesome!
but really the set up on your 12th scale is more important

Exactly!! Just buy any old crappy motor you can get your hands on. See that way when your skills improve and you stop hitting things, then you can purchase a whole new motor so you can keep up with the other guys who aren't hitting things!!! Makes perfect sense. You really wanna spend that extra $80 later right?

Posts like the one quoted are completely retarded. Nothing was added to the discussion within the thread. Noone wants to buy more motors than they need to. A little research never hurt anyone, but it can save you some coin, allowing you to spend more money on practice time at the track. I don't understand why simple product research threads always have to be polluted with someone spouting crap about others' driving.

Default motors

I wonder if Travis has even been to a big race? Usually the A main is all good drivers. Horsepower in stock classes definetly win races!! Considering brushless motors are not cheap i would say do all your research and ask questions to find the motor you think is best for you. Good driving only takes you so far in stock class. Unless you race with a bunch of people who cant get around a track.
