There really is no can anymore. You can put any stator with the same endbells and you're good to go. Not really legal to run a 13.5 in a stock (17.5) class. This is one of the benefits of swapping stators without having extra endbells. 1 set of endbells and 4 stators, you can pretty much run any class available.

It would be really neat if we could buy optional cans in different colors. I think a black can with the white silkscreening would look great.

I love the motors, they've been excellent.

I run the green rotor in my griffin 12 and its freakin awsome. I'm told its not a good combo for big tracks but you never know. The track I race on is 60x36 and it works great there. Hope that helps.

All 3 rotors are good in certain applications. You just have to find the right timing and gearing and all can be very fast.

Larry,

Say your on a 100x50 track, medium-high grip ..

Any general rules of thumb that you go by when going between these rotors?
How is the feel different?
Any gearing/timing suggestions for blinky 1/12 and WGT?

Anyone compared the Thunder Power motor with the direct equivalent Reedy while using the same settings etc on their ESC?

What was the difference?
