Default Revolution based stock?

A stock motr that stays ballistic for more than 2-runs and remains fast for 12 to 18 runs would be Awesome!!!

That would be killer if you coud build the motor and run it from practice till the Mains!!! I could leave my lathe at home.

Rick Howart posted in the RCCA forum that the design did not work well in stock form and was not any sort of improvement over current design.

Maybe they can make a 19t variant.

Can you post the reason he gave as why the stock form didn't work if there is one?

If the motor even performed as well a the current crop of motors but had the maintenance schedule the mod version has, I would buy one.

Yep, I agree. IMO, the biggest single advantage of the Revolution over conventional designs is lower maintenance. I can't wait until brushless becomes the mainstream type of electric motor. It's only a matter of time.

Rick Howhart stated on the Orion boards that a V2 based 19t and Stock were in the works, but not until summer at the earliest....

However, he later posted because of production issues and backorders on the V2 based mods, the 19t and Stock versions of were delayed indefinitely...

While 19t shouldn't be that big of an issue.....making a stock underneath the ROAR price limits could prove very difficult with the custom endbell while still maintaining the level of profitability a big company like Orion requires....

Only time will tell.....

I do think that is probably part of the reason behind it. However, around here the Revolutions are actually cheaper than both the Reedy KR's and the Trinity D6 motors. . .

I'd really like to see Rick jump in and give us what news he can.

I've done some testing with these mod motors and they lack bottom end. They don't have the rip coming out of the corners. I can only imagine that would be extremely noticable with 27 turns. It's annoying enough with the 8 and 9 turns I've been running. I love the maintenace of them and they have tons of top end, but they need some more work to get the bottom end.

Maybe Rick could give a little advice on getting torque from these motors.

I know everyone tests are different but I have found the Orion/Peak motor to have strong rip on the low end and very good top end in my Yokomo CGM and I have run them in my B4. I have raced D5, KR, TI and Core based mods. The V2 is the best mod I have in my box AND kills the other mods in terms of maintence and overall costs. Brush costs alone have allowed me to afford new batts...lol I know these will be the only mods I buy.

I thought I also read on Orions site that they may release an interum stocker before the V2 stock, but it did say the 19T and stock were delayed, as EddieO posted. I guess its good news bad news for us. If they can just make a stock V2 motor as good as there Core stock, I'd still by one. These guys are supposively getting 40+ runs in mod, so think about a stock V2, maybe 50+ runs or so! That may put a damper on me purchasing a brushless in the near future.
