Is the Core motor strictly an off-road motor?? If so What does Orion have for on-road??

I was running the core stock against 19ts and i was holding my own. So I'll recommend that motor for sure!

For TC.. Monster all the way! Just about any brush combo you run seem to work. The power curve seems to be smoother on the Monster where the Orion seems to be harsh on the low end and soft on the top. Just my opinion though. Can't got wrong with a Putnam Monster!

I don't know about one being better for onroad vs. offorad ...I have run my B4 with both motors...The Core (which is an MVP and also a Peak Hellfire) was tuned with narrowed 766 brushes and red spring on pos/ green on neg...My monster tuned with purple on pos with a 4499/ green on neg wih 767..

At SoCal last night I started with the Core and switched back to my Monster with MUCH better results...the monster was like a freakin' mod...

To really shake it up I say try a P2K2 with 767's...but you do have to watch those dang magnets in those trinity cans...I think ultimatly it's all about finding the right gearing.....

Oh.. and make sure you get some Fuk batts...they rock in stock....

Get the Monster stock and go! go!! GO!!!....

Before I went Brushless the monster was my favourite power plant.
My very last monster must have been the best of a good bunch because "Crikey it was a little beauty"...

Core = MVP WRONG. They use the same armature design, but the moster arm is pretty darn similar too. The cans are different, and as we know, with stock motors, the can will have a significant impact on motor performance.

I don't care what Big Jim says.

If you're looking for a lot of speed go for the Monster, that's what I run onroad. Offroad I've been running a Green Machine 3 which works pretty good. I used to run a core in my TC3, but that was before the monster came out. It was a good motor, but the monster is, in my opinion, better. Hope that helps.

large track = Monster, GM3

Mid sized track = Mvp, monster, p2k2, p2k

Small track = Core, p2k2, Mvp, p2k

Say what you want but on a small track the motor with more torque will have the advantage. So that includes the Core, Mvp, p2k2 and the original p2k. If your on a mid to large track then it's the monster or the GM3(very large track) all the way. I've been running an Mvp for a few months and it's a great motor as long as your not running on a large track. IMO the Mvp is the best all round motor out, even though it gets hot.

P.s. The Mvp *IS NOT* the Core, the Mvp has superior magnets and can reach higher rpm's then the Core.

Default Holy Wars!!

hicheef,

My own $.02

I run on-road only, but I preferred the Monster over the Core. I had TONS of Torque with the Core, but our track is pretty wide open and I need more RPM's. I even had a few of the more experience guys tune the Core for me and the result was the same against an off the shelf Monstor. The Monster was more of a balanced motor for me with both torque and rpm's. BUT as good as the monster is I prefer the GM3 when I run stock.

I would say look at your track first is it tight or is it open? If that don't help ask the fast guys at the track what they run and why. Good Luck.
