I bought a Putnam Monster Stock through Stormer Hobbies and was deeply disappointed. The motor glitched really badly. Lots of people told me it was a capacitor problem so I tried to contact Putnam on 8 different occasions (via email and phone). I never got a return call or email. Oh well, I guess I just won't buy any of their stuff and I won't have to worry about not getting service. I have contacted Axiom, Team Paradigm and Fantom in the past for questions and information and they've always responded in a timely fashion. Pick your motor tuner wisely.

In general, if you do a little reading you can tune off the shelf motors with positive results. One of the only things a motor tuning company can do that most others cannot is balance an armature. Other than that, most tuning tips and tricks are out there for you read and try.

One of the guys at my local track said that paradigm makes their own brushes, and i think that they are the best out there, and for the price, you cant beat it. As for buying tuned motors, i never have, i have always done my own motor work, so i wouldnt know who has the best tuned stock motors.

I have to throw another vote in for Paradigm.My team has about 8 of their motors.We run on and off road stock and mod classes.We have always been pleased with the power from these motors.We have compared stock P2K2,Monster, and the new binaries between off the shelf and Paradigm.The Paradigm's pulled every stocker take-off,punch,and top speed.When we first started our team I found the Paradigm guys and every time I bought a motor my teammates would by the same motor stock to compare.We tested punch, top speed, and take-off.Now sometimes there wasn't a huge difference in any one area ,but the Paradigm's proved there worth over and over.Another thing they will cut the arm and retune the motor for 2 bucks.Hard to beat that!

I had this problem with Trinity Monster. I changed the capacitor board, nothung, removed the green coating where the timing rin holds the can, nothing. I ended up soldering the capacitor board the brushoods, where the little bit of copper overhangs onto the capacitor board, and it was fixed. I do it to all my motors now, just in case.

Putnam, Fantom, Paradigm, and Team 1 RC are all great tuners. Support your LHS and choose from something they carry.

I also had this problem on my old xxx-s from getting hit on the endbell, so I put a p2k2 endbell on to solve the problem. Soldering is the only fix on those. Mabye trinity could just start soldering them so they could have a better product.

I agree with this you can tune your own stock motor and to get the max performance from your motor is to have the brush hoods perfectally alligned and to reduce arcing to a minimum. The price of purchasing a motor balancer and a motor magnet zapper are prohibitive to the racer so these 2 things are the only real advantage in purchasing a tuned motor.
