Default Core Stock vs Monster Stock Pro

Anyone use the Orion Core Stock motor. I'm currently running the Monster Pro and am happy with it, but the specs on the Core state that it puts out higher RPM's and more power.

Any intput would be great..

Yeah, they all claim they put out more torque, RPM and power.

The core is basically a revised MVP.....but the MHP (in my opinion) is simply a better motor.

i have tuned and tryed to tune the core stock. i have spend hours on the dyno trying to get the most out of the motor with little luck. i found these motors lean more towards the torque side of the spectrum rather than the rpm side. the only plus to these motors over the monster is that they take alittle more punishment. in the end i guess it depends on what type of track you are racing on?

Look at your little dyno numbers sticker on the motor the trinity/epics are tested at 5.0 volts, and the reedy and core's are tested at 7.2 pretty hard to compare until you actually drive with one, although the core seems do be more of a torque based motor,where the trinity/epic's are RPM based motors, the monster based motors are far more popular in all stock racing.

Just get a tuned Monster and be done with it!

Trinity can't make a half decent performing motor out of the box! For some reason I like mentioning that Maybe it because they make less money of selling OEM to tuners than they do selling it themselves
Or maybe cause the tuned ones are fast

Paradigm, EA, Putnam, Axiom...whatever!

Blackcat, have you tried the Fantom tuned stock motors? The other night my buddies and I were dyno testing our motors and one of them pulled out a Monster based Fantom. Man, that thing was off the stock charts. On the track it pulls on my best Monster Pro like a 19t. Even one of the Fantom sponsored guys wanted to borrow it for the Novak race.

I just picked up the Fantom Limited Edition Quad Stock. Hopefully tonight it will pull up some good numbers for me. Monster version was out of stock.

I'm with you on getting the tuned motors and be done with it. I also plan on testing Paradigm, EA, Putnam, too. And since I'm new to electric motor tuning. I hope to learn more on their techniques to try and do my own tuning.

Thanks for the input, guys!

Really? I've heard really bad things about them and they have really crappy dyno specs at my LHS.

Could be misleading though. So far I'm stickin with a Paradigm Monster. Great motor if you can gear it right
