Yes we are working on a stock motor and a spec 19t.

The motor is Roar and Ifmar approved right now. Still working on all the EFRA stuff.

Will most online hobby shops carry them? or will they be specific to a certain site?

Everyone can see the new Checkpoint motor in the April issue of Extreme R/C car. They rated it a BIG FAT 10! They are working day and night on the first production runs. Trust me once you try one of these motors you will be hooked.

Are they still using the sagami arms?

Later EddieO
I would like to run them once they go OEM and Eddie can get a hold of them Especially after seeing Randy's the other night at SoCal.

You need to see it on a more open track where I can get on more than 1/2 throttle, then it gets impressive

They are round brushes. No other brushes will fit. We have found some great new compounds that are lasting 30-40 runs in off-road and 10 runs in touring car with out lossing power.
