Default Trinity "Monster Horsepower Locked" Motor Thread Discussion

I Figured it was time to start a thread about the new Locked Timing spec motors from Trinity.

These motors are the spec Motor of the Short Course Nationals in R/c Madness This year.


I personally think this is the Right direction to get spec racing back where we once where.

I will be here to try and help anyway i can along with Eric Anderson, Andrew Knapp and any other Team Trinity drivers.

Mike

i think this is great and its a move in the right direction it takes one less factor out of the equason and makes the racing a little bit closer



just wondering what the timing is locked at

Timing is locked at 30 degrees with no way to cheat it either way. Its a great motor and runs awesome!

This is what stock racing needs! It doesn't need
- dynos
- tuning rotors
- motor of the week..

I hope ROAR and/or other major races adopt this style of motor moving forward.

I think this is a great step to solve many issues, but what happens if a bearing fails or something else happens that can be fixed. I guess I just need more info on what this means to us. In short, I think I support the idea because I rather not search for the ideal rotor or even the tuning rotor stuff but what about just maintaining the motor?

I applaud Epic/Trinity for this motor and taking the BIG Step to resurrect all racing, and Touring Car especially.

Being first is not always easy.

i heard from a reliable source that it uses all d3 internals so parts (bearings, sensor boards) shouldnt be an issue

Thanks for that. So we can take it apart, we just can't advance the timing, what keeps the search for the ultimate rotor from happening? Again, I do want this to succeed, I am just looking for info. Thanks for getting this going.

i would imagine that the rotor will be marked in the current fasion with a colored ring on the rotor and that only one style of rotor will be legal

The motor can be taken apart but the stator has a colored epoxy preventing someone from unwinding it and cheating. The rotor is also shaped different on the ends so that you can tell its the proper rotor without taking the motor apart. The rotors have been so close I dont think you'll have to worry about trying to find the magic one. Same goes for all the motors. They are VERY close. The D3's are close and the Monster locks are even closer together!

It uses the same type of stator, endbells and sensor boards (except it has a lock on the board) as the D3 and it only has one set of holes to screw it together with. No slots or separate holes for adjusting timing.

Yes I could not agree more. We need spec racing to be like it used to be. Get the classe's seperated again. If you want to run timing , boost etc then just run modified.

I really hope the racers and Track owners look at this and accept this as the standard and we will watch racing grow again.

Let's keep this going.

Hmmm and the price looks right too...$59.99 on Epic's sight. Not bad.

Where is 30 degrees compared to the 0 mark on the D3?

Thanks for the info, excellent comments and answers to my questions, I'm on board with this idea. This could be the "boost" that is needed to revive racing
