Default New to board motor ?

Hey guys , maybe you can help me out.

I recently purchased a RTR TC3, and I was wondering what motor I could put in it to gan a bit more speed, its bone stock right now
with the stock motor and a LRP runner plus s/c.

the speed controller is good for 18t- "i think" 36t motors, but like I said Im a "newbie"
This car is not a racer for me, I just wanted a good car that I can beat the hell out of and get replacement parts easily .
Thanks in advance!
Ryan

No, generally speaking the less turns the more power output. Beware thought that as speed increases life-span decreases.

Another possiblity is the Trinity ARCORNITE, or a Reedy Quad 'spec' motor all are 19 turns... Arcornite will have adjustable timing wichi may be bad for a newbie, but you can always just leave the timing set where it is... The Chameleon has fixed timing at 24 degrees and can not be changed. The Reedy "Spec" motors have a notch on the endbell that keeps things at 24 degrees... (untill you cut the little tab off)...

Once you get a little experiance you may be ready to crank the timing up a bit. Typicaly this will give you a little better overall proformance then if you have it fixed at 24 degrees, but then it may just confuse you while your still new. Even so, the Chamelon motors can never be changed due to the shape of the can and endbell. I find that to be a draw back to that perticular model... That's why I suggested a ARCORNITE if you want a Trinty...

a Speed Gem would work to...

Oh, and another thing... While it often is true that lower turns means less life span... that's not nessasrly true... If you get a motor with adjustable timing, and keep it low enough, a 19 turn can last as long or longer then a 24 degree stock motor, and still be faster.

19 turn at about 6 degreess should go faster then a stock motor and have simmilar longevity... If you strat cranking the timing up, the life span will deffinetly go down.
