Default Noob: What is a good/fast motor?

Hey guys,
Looking into getting into electric and was wondering what is a good and fast motor? My local track is pretty big.

I plan on running 3300 6 cell battery packs. Not sure about ESC yet.

get a monster. Fantom tuned. Race stock during your first maybe 2 years until you get the hang of it.

If your track is big and fast, think about getting a P2k2 or Epic ROAR stock, they have more RPMs. If your track has a technical infield look into a Monster Stock as Axel said. If your looking online to buy a quality motor I HIGHLY recommend talking to the guys from express motorsports @ http://www.tmxpress.net/. As for "2 years racing stock", take your time, have FUN. There is no time limit rule on how long you should be in a stock class. If you start winning all your races in stock class then try going to 19 turn then modifieds. Just move up as YOUR skills improve and you need more competition. Good luck to you and happy racing!

I tried a P2K (or maybe it was P2K2) a while ago and it was very slow.

What exactly do the number of winds / turns mean and also what about whether it is double or single?

Very slow? Compared to what? U need to sort of tell us what your planning to do?

Race ? Bash ?

If your running in a stock class even though you have run nitro im sure you will not feel slow running with 8 cars on a tight indoor carpet track.

If your running outdoors wich i think you are? PLRC member i think? The ya u need a mod motor, you club runs open rules..

Hey Joel...

Very slow in general.

I plan on running it at PLRC over the summer once in a while, bashing around once in a while, and running it over the winter at TORC.

Ya u need to go mod then, neither club runs stock, or at least not in any great number.

TORC is good for stock if there good numbers.
