They aren't quite ready yet. We had a few last minute details to add. Stay tuned they will be up the beginning of the week.

Stock motors are in the works. Check the very top of this page for brush and spring part #'s.

Thanks Randy. We went to Tamiya yesterday and tested for the Reedy race. Everything went great. Duane had to detune my motors so we wouldn't spin and over heat the tires. The first batch of mod motors will be shipped to Great Planes Monday. The stock and 19 turn are still under development.

I was working on a Reedy setup yesterday at SoCal. Unfortunately I broke 3 spools from getting hit in practice, so I had to go to a front diff which was definately slower, managed to get a pretty good setup though, has a lot of steering so I'm sure some of that will need to be dialed out for Tamiya, but this is definately a good base.

What turn motors were you guys running out at Tamiya? I was using the 6x1 seeing if it could make runtime, and in the main when I was actually battling my pack started to dump at about 4:40, the Ifmar qualifiers werent a problem as I could drive a little more smooth.

Are these motors all ROAR approved? I figure they will be, but it can't hurt to be sure. They seem extremely promising with the mix of normal laydown and V2 style. I'm thinking of ordering one through my LHS, for a tight indoor offroad track, what springs/brushes do you recomend on a 14x2?

The motor is Roar approved. There is no problem there. I will get with Duane and ask him what he used in Jared's motor at the Cactus.
