Default Help! 1/12 pan car motor to replace Lrp X11 17.5

Hey,
Well, I've been racing blinky 17.5 pan car at my local track, and have been getting progressively better. My skills are putting me right toward the bottom of the A main consistantly, and would have been there tonight if it weren't for a car I was lapping breaking me in the 2nd qualifier (we only run two on Thursdays).

During the B-Main, I was a lap and a half up on the field and going to close the win when my motor came apart. Apparently, the long screws that go into the endbell all came out, and my race was over. The screws are not holding into the plastic PCB, so I'm assuming they are stripped.

Looking for a motor to replace the X11. I will be frequenting two different tracks. A track that is 80x40 with a technical infield and a track that is about 100x40.

I'll consider any motor, Torque is good for the infields, and top end is also necessary, especially at the larger track for the longer straight.

I wouldn't look any further than the ReVtech line of motors. Trinity has always produced great motors, this one is no slouch.

You can also use the LRP X12 17.5.
That is a beast in it's class and can get extra timing true the inserts in the sensor board.
It is also shorter then the X11

Thanks for the input so far, I've considered the D3, but as I don't run a boosted class, it doesn't matter to me for that.
