Ive been using deans plugs for 3 years now and have never had one come a part during a race. (Forgot to plug my motor in though )
They are very well know for there low resistance, plus with them been polarised and male female there is no risk of connecting things wrong. and it makes life very easy to swap things in and out of the car.

It's only a matter of preference.It's very convenient using plug. U need to bring always soldering iron if u prefer direct soldering. But it looks neat.

Hello V2 owerns......I have a newbie quesiton, I am looking to purchase this endbell for the stock motor racing (local club racing, so no ROAR or IFMAR rules enforeced), and currently I have the Trinity Monster Pro Stock and the Epic Pro Binary 2......
I know there are 2 type of endbells I can choose from, 1 is for EPIC canl, and the other is for YOKOMO / TOP can...
So, I will assum for my Epic Binary, I will have to get the EPIC V2 endbell, right...?
But what about my Trinity Monster Pro stock...? Am I going to get the YOKOMO/TOP for the Trinity motor? Or Trinity Motor use the EPIC endbell as well...? I just don't know Trinity or Epic are both using EPIC can or Tirinty is considered Yokomo/Top can or something else...
I am kinda new on electric motors and indoor electric racing, I need all the pointer that I can get....thanks.

Last....if I have to replace the end bushing to a ball bearing, what is the size of that specific bearing..? Can I find that one at Tower...?

Thanks a million...........

The monster is an epic based stock. They are both "Trinity" motors and you will want to se the same endbell on them.

Will this endbell set work with 19T motor...? I think someone mentioned it will not work with something like 3/10 shaft and most 19T are that size...

All motors with 7.5mm comm(orion. peak, trinity,etc) will fit, the only exception is Reedy Quad 19T which uses 9mm comm. As far as I know, all motors have 1/8"shaft, and they all use the same size ball bearing.

has anyone tried a modified (5mm web) vs touring (4mm web) with an 8turn (or something low like that). What did they think was better

anyone knows who carries the Steenari & Hara versions of the V2's...(readily available)

I am very interested in trying them out and compare them to the regular "black" & "blue" versions...

I love these motors!

Try Stormer Hobbies. They should have some in stock. Last I checked they didn't have every wind available, but quit a few.

take care

dontfeelcold,

I have tried both the modified and the touring(Spashett version)on 1/10 touring. The touring version has definitely more power & is more aggressive. It really depends what class you are racing in. The Modified versions are mostly for off road.

Below 10 turn and the 5mm black is generally better IMHO.
