Default BLINKY 17.5 MOTOR THREAD.

Everyone has an opinion where this is concerned.

I'm really just curious to find out what motors and combinations are working well for people (lap time wise).

Is there a "Magic" motor and fdr for Touring?

Go!

Johnson 540-j or mabuchi 540-j super torque.j/k

Thunder power, revtech, & reedy all work well. any of those 3 with the different rotor choices can get you going whatever the layout is.

make sure your batteries & charger are good as well as I noticed more performance from swapping my batteries

this one.... sorry couldn't help it.

I believe what he was saying is the subject has been beat to death, and we always get 40 responses with 28 answers and 12 yea what he saids. if theres was one magic combo, pretty sure we would have heard about it by now, its all about the sweet spot for YOUR track and conditions.

happy motoring
