stormerhobbies.com sells them. They are in the states, but I've ordered from them before. Good prices on a lot of things.

I doubt you'll find them locally. When you go to the local track, talk to Mike Zufeldt or Mihai Gutuescu (I probably butchered the spelling) Those guys are nice. They have been racing a long time and probably know all the good stores in Ottawa, if you prefer to shop locally for most things.

Try Draganfly in Saskatoon, they are the Canandian distributor for Hacker and Thunder Power.

Nope car stuff too. Thats where one of our locals gets his motors from. You might have to phone them though.

Check the site Johnny. Only motors they have listed there are for planes. Not one car motor of any brand.

Yes, no listing, and counter guys are all plane people. Not sure who you'd have to actually talk to, I'll see who our local guy was dealing with.

Man, you just can't pick something simple and readily available, eh theatriks? lol

Good luck finding a 17.5 hacker e40. From my brief search I was not able to find a 17.5 e40 anywhere.

Well, don't believe everything you read. Especially if the post was older than a year.

What was "the best" even 6 months ago, probably isn't anymore.

The new Trinity ReVtech motors are awesome and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. I'd be willing to wager that the next big race that syndrome gathers all the info on what equipment people ran in the A-mains (will probably be IIC), you'll probably see a ton of ReVtech motors and batteries in the list. (http://www.rcprogear.com) .

FYI, the popular motors for the past 6 months or so, that always show up in the A-mains, have been Thunderpower, Trinity/Epic, Reedy Sonic, LRP and Speed Passion.

Our local guy says it was once stocked by Draganfly, but now is special order item. If you want one they would have to bring one in, anyone on order desk can do that for you (i hope). Sorry.
