MB racer.If you will take a Orion Core or Peak Hellfire and drill a hole in the - side brush with an exacto and then narrow the face of each brush like BiG Jim states these motor's will outlast the arm.The magnet's are 10x's the quality of trinity.
The New Integy Atlas stocks and Reedy MVP's are the same way.Just a lil more tuning but on tracks that dont have a HUGE straight they rock.Expecially on smaller tigher to medium sized tracks.

Default stock motor very inefficient

stock motors used to be very reliable, slow and efficient.
But nowadays people want higher speeds, so you have a trade
off, high speed, low efficency and higher heat. If you want a
cooler running stock motor try a SIB motor.

believe me Ive been through them all and all have the same effect to me ... Some do hold up a few runs better than others but I dont have the problems with 19t or mod, so ill stay with them and just keep going fast ... Our layouts are pretty dialed in to be fast and the straights are long for stock but the racing is all fast and clean.. Thanks for the tips if iever go back to stock ill try a few things ..

if you heard Big Jim talk about it yes the MVP is the way to go just gear it to the roof. well the higher you gear the more punch you lose. I run a monster stock with very little prep and it just runs and runs and runs. As for the BS quad mag motor it isn't as efficient as the monster but runs about the same wattage on my fantom. I run 12th scale so efficiency counts. I gear the monster the same and maybe one tooth higher then the BS and even with that I can dump the BS motor if I don't baby it for the first two minutes. I could never get a core to run right. the P2K2 doesn't have the punch as the monster nor the top end without gearing high.

AND WHY DO STOCK MOTORS STILL HAVE BUSHINGS!

The original idea for stock was a class to keep costs down, hense the bushings instead of bearings. That concept has been tweaked since it costs a lot to run stock competitively.

Cool pk2

The days of the pk2 and the Race prep are over. The new dual
stack armatures produce high end power, low end torque, but win
in the long run. Do not overgear these fine machines. SIB

Quick question regarding the Monster Pro and P2K2.

What is the gearing range for both motors? (final drive)

Monster Pro?

P2K2?

Thanks

Default Best of the best

I run a Monter stock. This has to be the best motor. Pleanty or torque and high rpms. Just pick the motor tuner for eg. Jim or Putnam there are quite a few. Does not like to be over geared. Back it up with some Fukuyama matched cells and you will never look back.
