Good motor numbers?

What are considered "good" numbers for a stock motor? I was looking at Monster stocks and EPIC Roars at the LHS the highest RPM I saw was in the 21k and 67 in power.

What about the torque!? 100nMM, min on a monster the other numbers you posted sound good, but remember those numbers wont guarantee a killer motor! it helps to weed out the total duds though, good luck!

Hows this motor reading?

RPM: 25332rpm
TORQ: 4.6
WATT: 87
EF: 69
AMPS: 17.0

I dont know much about that but 25332 sounds good?

Thanks

Depends on which dyno was used to test it. On the Robitronic one(which by default tests at 7.5 volts), that wouldn't be too good, but for the Fantom(which uses either 5 or 6 volts) it'd be incredible. If I had to guess, those numbers sound like they're from the Competition Electronics TurboDyno(& with that one I don't really remember what would be considered strong on it, most of my experience is with the Robi & Fantom). But keep in mind that a manufacturer can come up with those numbers in a variety of ways, so in general I try not to count too much on them(which is a part of why I bought my own dyno, a Robi), I instead just buy from those builders I trust most, & try not to obsess about the numbers on the label, I'll just test it on mine & get an idea of how it compares to my other motors so I'll have an idea of how it wants to be geared. But if those numbers that micros_rock posted are true, then that could be a pretty stout motor(it's most likely numbers from the Fantom dyno, which Trinity/Epic use nowadays), but really the track will be the real test......

Yes, the numbers I posted are from the Trinity labels, which are rated at 5 volts. TRAJ, assuming that the motor you have is a stock, it's probably the max output numbers, which isn't that good.

I'm not at all playing the number game, I just want to make sure I don't get a dog.

Well again, that's why going by just a couple of numbers really isn't enough. As a matter of fact, I've had a few motors that looked good in the power & rpm numbers on my Robi, but when you looked at the time to reach top rpm & the torque, it didn't quite measure up as well, & ontrack, the motor would bear it out(would generally feel kinda soft, not much punch to it, & on anything less than a BIG track, it wouldn't be well suited), while I'll see others that don't have the biggest power numbers, but the rpm is good & the time to speed is good, & those generally turn out to be pretty sweet motors. But unfortunately, most manufacturers don't print a time to speed figure on their labels, so you have to guess at it(but at least some torque numbers can be helpful)....

As you said, the track is the true test.

But in general, a stock motor with numbers like 21000RPM, 67W, and 101nMM is going to be more likely to perform better than a motor with 19000RPM, 58W, and 93nMM.

the mid to high 20 000 is what you are aiming for but that is just the motor with no load so in the end on the car u will probably pull about 19 000.

most of my motors are aroung 25 000 - 28 000 on the much more motor master. but i do have a mate which has got 32 000 rpm out of a epic monster. our draws dropped.
