Exclamation Stock vs Mod. classes question

I should probably know this already, but what is the difference between stock and mod classes? Are they talking about the motors or the car itself?

what would be considered a stock motor? mod motor?

concerning the brushless class-these races would take forever. dont brushless motors just increase efficiency, not really speed? maybe thats just the "sport" system....

Stocks are usually 27 turn motors, whereas Mods are usually >11 turn motors.

No not really, in many cases stock vs mod same car same driver the lap times are not always that great..

On the club level i often see guys run faster laps with there stock motors vs there mod motors. Oh sure they rip down the straigh so fast but.........

But all things equal mod is faster sure.


I laugh though when i see 200mm nitro sedans woop 235mm cars but laugh even harder when mod electrics woop both. Short tight tracks can really equilize things

Stock racing is spec to 27 turns and a specified wire guage.

Anything else....... no matter what turn it is..... 25.... 23..... 19 it is considered Modified. Modified class you can run prototype parts and cars. Stock the parts must be readily available to the general public. If a guy wants to run a 14 turn in the Mod class then he can, it isn't like 11 or less.

i was kinda wondering about that. i thought that they were saying that mods were 11 turns or less. so anything less than 27 turns is mod. i see. and what kinda parts would be considered "not available to the public"?

new prototype parts companies want to race test before releasing to the public, stuff like that
