I've heard rumors that Orion/Peak is working on it, but I don't think it will happen right away. And yes, if it's stock it will have to be 27 turn.

I think he wants to know if the revolution design would allow it to be allowed in stock racing.

Oh, I see. Good question. I've wondered that myself. Seems like the aluminum endbell would raise the price too much. Doesn't ROAR put a cap on the retail price of a stock motor?

It would be good if they also do 23T for we the Asian.

They are making a budget V2 endbell (no aluminium) so price won't be an issue.
Can't say how good the V2 style brushes will work in stock though.

Just curious, what makes you think they won't work as well?

Seems like a waste for a stock. You also have to pop out the bearings, and put in bushings.

Lot of debate about that Motor for stock 23T here in Japan... I would think most of the tuning tricks would go out the window.. but .... who knows

Basic motor design, think about this:

Why do all stock motors and most fast 19T motors use laydown brushes instead of standup.
This will give you the answer why I may not work as well.

Peak has just relased a "V2 Endbell Adaptation Kit" for stock motors w/Bushings and all.... check it out: http://www.peakmotors.com/menu/news/ca40/newsid/6
