Default Trinity Motors I've had it with these pieces of CRAP!!!!

OK, enought is enought!!!
I'm through with Trinity electric motors that
1. The magnets come unglued during a race ( and you know what that means )
2. Magnets that break apart ( Guess again what happens )
3. Trinity " send them back and we see what the problem is" and the exact response to the 3 I've sent them. " The motor got hit and this caused it or the motor got over heated.

One of the *()^%&*(%^ motors was new, first time run ( 4 minutes into the qualifier ) was not hit or even "hot ". They still said I must have been mistaken......

Is there any other decent vendor that has good 19 turn and stock motors out there that stand behind their product?

AUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They do have really poor customer service. If you want a good 19t check out Brahma Racing Products. We have some super fast 19t motors.

Default Brahma Racing Products

I run for Brahma Racing products and can firmly stand behind their products. Chris the owner, puts out a good product and stands behind 100%. Might give them a try..

Email us with any questions, we'd be glad to help. I've been running nothing but 19t sedan for the past two weeks using Brahma Epic and Reedy based 19ts and 430+ 1.15 packs. Havn't lost an A-main yet.

Personally, I have never been a huge fan of Trinity motors. Unfortunately, at my track if you want to be in the A main, you have no choice but to run a Monster or BS.
I loved the MVP but they were just never enough. Everytime I have purchased a Team Orion Stock motor they either blow up before I can finish my first pack or the glitching is so terrible, I can do nothing to correct it. The latest Core stock that I bought ran so hot that the leads soldered to the motor came undone. I know the motor was geared correctly becuase I was running the same gear everyone and ratio as everyone else.
I have gone through at least 20 Monster stocks and another 10 Binary Stocks and never had a problem with them. I did find with for me that after a while the caps would go and the glitching would be terrible. But by that time, the coms were cut so small they were not even a good choice for practice motors.

The monster stock is one of the best stock motors I've run when its done right. Back when I drove for Trinity you could get 3 and 1 of them would run good. The other two ended up just being spare arms. So I dont think the design is bad, just the people putting them together. When you get one from a company who takes care of their business then you'll have fast motors no matter what the brand.

I ran the reedy mvp for a long time, I went through three motors which blew out their magnets due to overheating. I'm now running a Monsters and a BS and haven't had one problem at all. They run great once you put about an hour into them and once geared right and tweeked they rip.

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.

Why are people just posting tuners? The mako is still a monster stock and unless fuku has beefed up the epoxy around the magnets there is still a chance that it will blow it's magnets. Yes aligning the brushes and all that makes the motor run a little cooler but it's still a monster.

Wait, so the Fukuyama stock motor is not a good choice?
