Default Best 13.5 motor?

What is the best 13.5 motor in your opinion for pro stock class.

SP, LRP, Orion, Novak, Trinity, Tekin?

Now starting with SP 9.5 motors, sometimes using 13mm rotor and it's great.
Thank's orzel24

Oh man, this is one of those threads when everyone is thinking their motor is the best....... Just look around your track and try different things (borrow a motor for one run). Every motor reacts differently to the different tracks and gearing. BTW all of those you have mentioned are good so make your pick.

I know the GM are very quick like the novak's but id recomend the GM as they run cooler with the cooling holes in the can.

I like my Speed Passion simply because it's designed to work with the LPF speedo and suits my regular track.

There are guys at my club running GM and Novak motors on SP ESCs with good results.

Horses for courses I would imagine.

i have to say after testing the speed passion , LRP and the GM the GM is best even with the LRP stock spec , it runs cooler and you can gear it harder then the other 2 i tried

and if you get one from HK modelbouw in germany they are only €49

but if you want i have an LRP that i have used once you can buy from me for a good price

The speedo matters more than the motor, but most of the fast guys at our track are either running the Trinity Duo 2 or the Novak SS.

No question, the Tekin motor is the top of the pile in spec racing.

Ran my 13.5 Fantom tonight in TC and kept up with a 4600Castle setup. I'm very impressed with my Fantom. Just my .02!

Any Trinity DUO (not Duo 2 or Pulse) base motor are good to get or the Speed Passion series. But I agreed, it is the speedo/software that makes the different.
