These motors are awesome, tons of power and very little maintenence. They run really cool too with the aluminum endbell.

I've been looking to buy one of these forever, but I can't find them anywhere.
Where are they online?

Randy thanks for the support on the motor. We are tring our best to make the product speak for it's self.

Eddie, GP is the exclusive distributor of the Checkpoint line of product. Also OEM stuff will not be out in the near future. We have a ton of back orders to fill.

I think you should offer them to tuners as well. Just my opinion.

Hopefully OEM hits fairly soon.....its key in my opinion for a successful motor.....especially if only one distributor is carrying them....

I know some of my guys would like to run them....

Are they still using the sagami arms?

Congrats to Team Checkpoint!!! I know O'Donell now owns the rights to the name but its still great to see the Checkpoint brand name back in RC! I still have my original Checkpoint GOLD in my Tamiya HotShot! Bravo once again!!!


One thing is for sure.... your new motors are very efficient and competitive! Jared Tebo seems to be very happy (and successful) with his!


Any chance we might be seeing a Checkpoint Brushless Motor in the future (even if it's just the motor and without the ESC)!?! I think that would be great!

From what I am told, they are working on a 24 degree stock motor...

And the Checkpoint Modified is now ROAR approved....it was recently added to the approved products list on the ROAR page....
