Default Thoughts on best motor for 13.5 WGT

So as everyone knows there are some motors that work well in one class and not so well in other classes... well i personally found that the Tekin 13.5 Redline motor on a tight track rolled out around 60 is not the one to have in WGT... Post it up about the motors you found that work and that dont work.

Are you running blinky or boosted? We run boosted at our track and they run boosted at the MidWest Grand Slam Series races as well. For boosted I've had great results with the DUO1 based 13.5 and the D3's are great as well.

We run blinky here at our local club... do you know if the duo 1 works good on blinky?

60 is very low for blinky.
What size is your track ?

The Duo 1 13.5 has been my motor of choice for both blinky and ramped. Use full timing advance for blinky and no timing advance for ramped. My two Duo 13.5s from EA are 2-1/2 years old and still gold.

Also have had good results in blinky with a Team Powers 13.5 motor fully advanced.

Getting a new RevTech 13.5 from EA that will be tested soon.

our track is very small and pretty tight... also i run max timing... but with the redline pro it seems like if i go up in rollout its just way to sluggish in the infield but if i go down then its like a 25.5 motor on the straitaway... im confused

No arguments on the other motor options here.

But, have you tried no timing with more gear.
It's been a while since I've run a Redline, but they didn't like any timing added.
That was a torque motor.

MurfDogg Motors also have a lot of punch, especially on tight layouts.

I've only run blinky a few times, but my DUO1 was VERY competitive. Just like Bill said, third hole for timing, and let her eat.

My next question is this, does anyone know if any hobbystores have any Duo1 13.5's still in stock? That motor is EVIL in 13.5 boosted 12th scale as well.

I have a couple Duo 2 motors I have run for years, any reason they would not run as good as Duo 1 in blinky classes?

We run boosted 13.5 WGT on a small tight 70 x 40 track.

I have had very good results with both the Tekin and Duo3 as have others. I hear that the Rev-Tech is good for Blinky.

Most guys at my track run either a D3 or Revtech but we run blinky. I run the D3.
