Default Best 10 turn?

I just wanted to know what people are running for mod 10 turn class outside on pavement. Medium to long tracks, TC3 with rubber tires. Any help would be apreciated. I am currently running a D4 10x2 geared 21/72 with good results but this motor is a little out of date. Thanks

Default 10 turn?

I am considering a revolution Atsushi Hara 10x1. Anyone try this?
Here is a pic of my car. The foams were used to take second place running with nitro touring cars. I ran low 11's with some mid 10 sec. laps while the leader ran mostly mid 10's. He had 2 laps on me after a 6 minute main run and I had 2 laps on third.

For a larger Track, I like the Reedy Kr based motors. They have a very nice, smooth, and controllable powerband with mucho top end power and still gives plenty of kick out of the corners.

Sushi Boy - I agree 100%

If you are using a 10 turn limit the Reedy Kr's are slightly quicker

id go with the peak v2.
if its a long track go with standard touring motor or if its short-medium get surkarn edition both in 10 single.
put the sprint brushes in.
if its medium length track put medium hard spring on positive and hard spring on negative.
time it about 11 degrees.
and starting ratio of around 7.5 and go from there.
if its a long track try medium spring on positive and medium hard on negative with around 14 degrees of timing.
gear at about 7.1 to start with.
hope this helps.

I was using the hara 10x1 in my xxx4. controllable power with awesome speed down the straight. Motor stayed cool and rebuilds were alot fewer than with conventional brushes. And this was with the enduro long wear brush.

Sharkman - - I see where you are from Maine. I will be visiting relatives in the Yarmouth area in a couple of weeks. Can you tell me if there are any off road tracks in that part of the state?

thanks

Going to be running mod this summer at our track's Sunday Series. Ordered the Peak Surikarn Edition in an 11x1 - they had a 9t, 11t, and 12t in stock (10t limit) so I went with the 11. After hearing the locals rave about them and seeing the top 4 at Reedy '04 running the Revolution, I'm really intrigued.

Hope they're as good as the hype would suggest.

Hey slicks,
Our local club just built a brand new track in Portland, about 20 minutes from Yarmouth.
1/8 is very competitive. There is also monster truck and nitro 1/10 trucks.
info is here
http://cumberlandrc.com/
We race on tuesdays and have a big sunday race coming up in mid july.
It's too bad that 4wd mod did not catch on because I really enjoyed the car/motor (xxx4,hara).

To stay on topic, alot of the local guys who run sedan carpet have picked up various models of the peak/orion motor and have great things to say about them.
