Default Duo / Duo 2/ Nemesis

I'm trying to pick a motor for 13.5 rubber sedan and was wondering what the differences in the three Epic motor lines are. Can someone shed some light on this? What are your experiences?

If you are using any of these motors with a tekin, I would go with DUO. I find it easier for me to get its "sweet spot" compared to DUO2. It's pretty fast.

I have not tried the Nemesis.

DUO1 - only 3 motor timings
DUO2 - very adjustable motor timings

DUO AND DUO2 are both great. Nemesis is different as it needs to be geared down about 3-4 teeth less than the Duo to be consistent throughout the whole run. I've noticed quite a few people avoiding the hassle associated with the Nemesis and just sticking with their Duo/Duo2 and getting awesome performance.

If you are running the Tekin RS and want to be super fast, get a LRP x-12. Game Over

The Pulse 17.5 was actually the first 21.5 motor ever produced. It makes a great paperweight though.

I am running a Tekin. So an x12 is the best bet? Lot of guys locally running the Ballistic.

Ballistic and x12 are both good. I think the x12 is slightly faster though with Tekin Rs..

Do any of you guys know what the bearing size is in the Duo2, I have a bearing that may need to be replaced.

Thanks,
Steve
