Default Matrix TQx 2000 Stock Motor

h22ah;

Matrix motors are 'Atlas' based and sold by 'Integy' in the USA.

Several of us (at our local track) have have ran them in the past and they can run good, but they are VERY picky about Brushes and Brush cuts. If you don't get it right it will be a dog.

Everyone I know has switched over to the Monster or Binary Stocks (EPIC based).
