I would choose the MVP personally.

MVP was my first stock motor then I bought a Monster because everyone said they were the bomb, but it was on average 5sec slower over a race no matter how I tuned it, using the same setup and same batteries.

That 5sec is the difference between me winning and getting 3rd or 4th

Just my $0.02

Every one is talking about how this motor or that motor is faster. What legally can you do other than the align the brush hoods (tweaked to get the most timing out of it), soft (hi silver) brushes, heavy springs for more power, lighter springs for more RPM, a nice trued com, and a well shimmed arm to make it go better?

I have heard of some people taking a 4-40 (?) tap to the bushings and threading them to make the shaft have less contact area on the bushings along with making sort of an oil reservoir.

If you cut down the com all the way it should make the timing advance....Right? You would get more brush wrap around and in effect get more timing? How small can you cut an arm before the two brushes are touching the same pole on the arm and making a dead short thereby killing your efficiency? Remember you would have to take in to effect how long it takes to charge the pole on the arm and then figure out how much the arm turned in that amount to time to squeeze it for that much more.

you are better of buying a regular old motor. for around 27 bucks.. buying a set of brushes and springs..5 dollars and having someone show u how to build it... u save 8 bucks off retail...


also... once the motor is rebuilt.. ie after 2-5 runs.. the next rebuild is yours.. you may as well peel the sticker off cause all u did was pay for the first few runs on the tuning...
You say this and then I look down at your signature, and I seem to find it to say Team One Racing Motors. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't that just kill your whole arguement.
