I posted on the first page suggesting the Schuur Speed 17.5, I use this motor in offroad and it has no problem hanging with people running the D3.5. I'm the only one at my track using this motor and I get asked all the time what motor I'm running because it has no problem running people down.

Im going to also get a SchuurSpeed 17.5 for my dirt oval EDM. Most of the other guys are running D3.5's so I'll let you know how it works against the 3.5 in a couple weeks.

Read through this thread and ask questions as well, Ron Schuur is pretty good about responding.

I've run a D3.5 stator with the Revtech end plates - it runs like a D3.5.

Depending on application, I would also recommend a Murfdogg Synergy motor. As mentioned many motors offer great performance and all have a sweetspot for endbell timing and gearing.

I have a trackstar 17.5 as well and used it this weekend in 1/12. I had complaints from everyone on how fast it was. Even the track owner came over to check I was running blinky. I took the entire motor apart last night to clean it for the first time. The rotor is painted black and drill balanced (like they used to on brushed motors). The rotor also had alot of magnetism / more than usual...and it's small. My cheap verniers measure it at 12.2mm. Which is probably why it's good on 1S...small rotor = higher RPM. Good for crazy rollouts in 1/12 blinky.

It is not ROAR approved but I had a clear advantage so I felt I needed to put back in my original motor to keep firends.
