I'm of the theory that all these motors are pretty much created equal because of ROAR rules. What I think makes the difference and not everyone is aware of this, that all BL motors can have their timing adjusted. For those thinking Novak motors are slow adjust the timing by losing the three screws on the back and turn the plastic ring counter clockwise as far as you can. You will be amazed at how much this changes the speed of the motor.

13.5 to 21.5 motors should all be run with maxim timing. When you buy a motor you don't know where the factor as them set except for Orion, some LRP, and some Speedpassion, and now the DUO's with timing marks. From my experience most are set to the middle timing range which is about 10-15deg.

The one area that seems to be different between the BL motor vendors is the power band. One vendor might have more torque at low rpm and another at high rpm. So for a large track Motor A might work well and for a small track Motor B may work better. It's hard to say which is better unless you can test each motor yourself. Even there you could use 5 motors from the same vendor and probably notice a difference as each motor has slightly different characteristics due to coil winding and how symmetrical the rotor is magnetized.

What would be cool is if someone with a motor dynamometer could test several motors from each vendor and post results.

I know my Fantom doesnt work for poop with my Sidewinder. Timing set to 0, wondering if moving it to 10 or 20 degrees would help?

Default motors

both are just trinity based duos, which are good motors. i think putnam may dyno motors, but overall all duos are good.

Default Trinity Pulse

One guy at Tacoma Raceway bought one of those Trinity Pulse 8.5 and he likes it so far (He said, first batch of the Pulse had some problems). I'd like to see a comparison between Novak SS 17.5 vs Hacker 17.5 vs Trinity Pulse 17.5.

Todd does some work to them, but I think $100 for a motor is a bit much.($80 without the ceramic bearings)

According to his post at DirtOavl.com he does dyno tuning and something with the rotor.

From his post:

"Our Blueprinted Line Includes:

-Dyno Results Printout
-Rotor Strength (Gauss Measurement)

Ceramic Bearing Upgrade / Installation is also available for $20."

Still seems like a lot of cash for a motor but the guys I have talked to say it's worth it.

I ran a Pulse, the new one, this past weekend. It seemed very flat no matter where it was geared or timing was set. I was 2tenths off, I put my hacker back in, and ran 3 tenths faster lap and 2 tenths faster avg lap.

I only ran the ver2. It ran smooth for 4 runs, it just had no pull. I tried timing from 0-15, and couldnt get the torque out of it.
