ProSilver motors have been on the market for awhile. I bought a ProSilver Monster Stock at the beginning of Summer. I found that it didn't have any more power than any other Monster I owned. I did find that the comm wear was better. It wasn't enough for me to want to buy another ProSilver.

BTW, a ProSilver stock motor is not ROAR legal.

The device that you see on these Prosilver arms, Are not the same as the Power Trix devices on Brood Motors. If you look closely at the difference between the two the Prosilver doesn't connect the comm plates like the Power Trix devices. It's unlikely that the Prosilver devices will use the resudual voltage from the colapsing coil to increase the voltage to the energizing coil. IMO

The prosilver diods are called "zener diods" just a little FYI for ya. I did a little research on them and found a lot of cool stuff about what they do.

Kind of odd that rcfaster's homepage is ProSilver?
