I never said that, from what I've heard it's fast. But it's still a monster and still a chance it'll loose it's magnets. After reading Nova's post I doubt wants another monster.

It all boils down to quality control. It just shows you how much they pay attention. There is nothing wrong with monster motors, just buy one from somebody you trust and you know will take care of you if something goes wrong.

Nova F1 Racer - You can stick the magnets back in if your careful. Also what rollout where you running?

Trinity motors like to eject their magnets, it's just what they do. You could try re-enforcing around the magnets with epoxy. That may help a little.
I'm running 2 Tamiya F201's with stock gears/tires/SMC 3300 stick packs batteries and with and without the Tamiya heatsink.
The F201 has known heat problem and I have cut out a nice hole in the bottom of the chassis to despense some of the heat.
I run them 6 minutes MAX and yes they do get hot but not to melt anything.....

That's only a 25.33 rollout, not that bad. A smaller pinion would probably help though. Is your track bigger then mimi's or around the same size?

Quality Control & Trinity....PFFFT!

For some odd reason...Whenever I've gotten an Epic motor, it lasts longer & performed batter than any Trinity motor. Just wondering if maybe they are like Peak/Orion. Seprate companies owned by Ernie or something

I've had 3 Monsters blow on me in less than a year. One was my first motor (we all abuse our first motor quite a bit when we are novices) Second just got slower and slower and slower, The other just straight-up quit

Two different companies owned by the same person. I'm not sure if everything is done out of the same building but I would bet they are.

Default trinity motors/P2K

I'm running an F201, with a Trinity P2K Copper Head Pro, and nothing's ever gone wrong with it, I've had it for 2 years, and it does get very hot, but I have the Carbon Fiber Chassis so nothing melts. If you have trinity motors, or any motor in your F201, you can cut the vents out on the sides and above the driver's head to let more air in, that helps a lot on mine. And be sure to break in and take reuglar care of your motors, I clean mine every week or two and it keeps goin' just as fast

O ok, that sucks. Maybe as has been said above, go with a p2k2. Their less touchy with gearing and are solid motors. Your other option is the reedy quad-mag 19t, with the 23/52 gearing it should do ok.

Its just a Trinity motor; you actually think they give a crap about there customers.

Wait for Team Brood stock motors to hit the marker then you will see what good stock motors are like.

I dunno, this doesn't make much sense to me, as I've run just about EVERY brand of motor there is over my 15 years of racing or so, & honestly, I've only had ONE Trinity motor have its magnets come loose(& I actually got it working again by using CA glue to put the magnets back in place). I've really only had that happen to me twice in total, once with a Trinity, & the other with a Reedy Ti motor(same deal as the Trinity, also glued it back in & it seems ok). I can't help but wonder how much abuse a motor is taking to have its magnets separate like that so often....

I have been running a Monster in my f201 for quite some time and it is ballistic. Just ask anybody who has seen it. The f201 does get really hot and the cooling holes help very little IMO. I have a heatsink from an EVO3 that I modified to fit the f201. I also have the aluminum motor mount and that does help a bit. Some of the other fast guys at the TCS nats made side scoops out of lexan to direct air to the motor and I was considering this myself. The TCS rules will also allow the use of a small fan which you can mount to increase air flow.
