Whats the best electric motor?

I have an HPI sprint that has a 17 turn motor in it. When I raced it i got in 2nd, only because the 3rd guy had a micro car. The 1st place guy smoked me. I dont know what he had under the body, but I know that a faster motor will defenitely help since I have geared the motor out as much as possible. I am about to get a esc that can handle an 8 turn motor, but dont know what motor to get for under $80. Epic or Trinity? Peak or Orion? What motor would be suitable for me?

First off, were you running stock or modified? Or you guys are out just running around?

The least expensive mod I know of is the Trinity D5 motor. I have a 9T single. Sorry it toook soo long, had to check the motor again.

I have run the Peak Vantage (same as orion V2) and a Reedy Kr for the last 2 seasons of mod, both 8 turns. I think the Reedy makes marginally more power, especially in the mid range. The peak/orion, though, would be my choice for 95% of racing, because it takes so little maintenance. Last week I melted the ESC leads off the endbell, and from the looks of it I wont even retrue the comm. Its quite maintenance free.

But for a big race I might go back to the Kr, it has a little psycological edge, to me at least. Maybe its the sound.

I havent heard a good thing about a Trinity motor from anyone Ive raced with lately. Stick with whats winning races, and thats the V2/Vantage and Kr
