Default 21.5 motor question

i am running a non timed 21.5 class and at our track we are getting big numbers and very little gap between the top 10 drivers.

is there a better 21.5 motor out there that would stand out over another?????

with such little difference over the top ten drivers, you are always looking at that extra edge.

yes smooth and consistent is the key, but that extra motor edge is always that extra you are looking at.

i am running a Tekin RS in a 416WE.

any tips would be great

Graupner 6569..

That is all.

The motor cannot be turned by hand because the magnets are so strong lol.

Which motors on on the track now?. I'm a fan of the ballistic u can twist the timing all u want and it keeps gettin faster. Would think the thunderpower is the same as well.
We run 21.5 on assfault in vta with a limited 5.2 fdr and speeds are same as spec 17.5 with a novak ss motor. Just less punch.

If you're all running times close to each other, then you simply have to out drive them. Run the fastes line and slow in, fast out.

If you want to change more powerful, then the other device must be replaced.
