Default Stock Motors

A Guy at my club was running a 24degree stock last night called a Lightspeed. Not one I've seen, says he got it from a friend who bought it in the States. It flies, like really quick makes a P2k2 look like its going backwards.
Who makes 'em and where can I get one.

Lightspeed is a motor builder in Texas(the owner's name is Mark, forgot his last name, I'm bad about that sometimes). He's a good guy, & he knows his motor stuff. I live in Tulsa, OK(which isn't very far from him) so we buy a lot of his motors & batteries here. I've always been very happy with both his stuff & Fantom's(& I've met Troy, Fantom's owner too, also a very cool guy ). Generally, if either of them tell you you've got a killer motor, you can bank on it. The only thing is, I'm not sure you'd be able to order Lightspeed stuff online, as I don't think Mark has anything bigger than a regional distribution deal(but I could be wrong), I think the best bet is by going to a shop in the US that's reasonably close to them(like I am), but I'm pretty sure that it'd be a lot easier to get Fantom's stuff(& really I consider them both to be equals). If you buy a Limited Edition stocker from Fantom, it'll likely be every bit as fast as the Lightspeed you've seen(assuming you can't find an online shop that does carry Lightspeed).....

Like I said, I think their distribution is regional only(so you'd have to ask your local shop if they know about Lightspeed, otherwise they may not be able to order from them), & as far as I know, they don't have a website......

I might be mistaken, but I believe one of our local shop carries Lightspeed. Its a HobbytownUSA. I believe I have seen both local HobbytownUSA's carrying them, or at least used to. So if you have one of those near you, maybe they carry them.

The owner of Lightspeed is Mark Lowrie.

5801 W. Int. 20 Suite 310
Arlington, Texas 76016

817-483-5772

I only use Lightspeed stockers and so far I am very happy with them. My latest motor (P2K2) had an experimental brush combo and it was extremely fast.

I was running a P2K2 with the new brush combo, 3911 - POS and 3910 - NEG. I then ran his standard P2k2 with 3910 brushes and there was a slight drop in RPM performance and torque seemed to be the same.

I'm sure the best way to differentiate the two motors would be with a dyno.

Sorry, no web site.
