Default Peak Hellfire vs. Monster pro stock motors

I just got a Peak Hellfire stock motor from a friend and want to test it in Onroad. I've always run Monster stock pros, and really liked their performance. Can someone tell me about this motor. How it should be geared, it's characteristics, what I should expect?
I usually gear my Monsters at 7.0 or close final gear ratio with rubber on asphalt tracks.

It's very well named that motor. It heats up like the fires of hell, and don't go quick. I tried to have mine go, but i found it much easier to put a monster and be (relatively as it's still a stock) quick again.

Still, if you want to try it, it needs gearing like hell(fire), we normally use about 8.2 on the monsters at the track i used to do stock, and i was gearing the peak at 6.5. If you try gearing it lower, it'll still heat like a mad, but won't be quick at all.

So should I even bother? Sounds like no one uses this motor for a good reason.

red/green springs. narrowed brushes. geared between P2K and P2K2.. I run mine in the low 6s. For reference, I run monsters around 7s like you.

Thanks. Yeah, the stock springs are red/green, and as far as brushes, do you run 767s and cut em down? If so, trailing end? In monster stock I like to shave a little off the trailing edge.

It sounds like it is a torque motor.

Did that, and tbh it wasn't nearly as good as just an out the box monster.

Peak Hellfire is like an MVP (almost identical...)

Gear it tall, may want to try around 6.0, and you can also try narrowed 766 brushes, which will help with the temperature.
CHeck www.rccars.com, Big Jim's motor forum and do a search for "MVP and "Tuning" you should find a few suggestions.

Sounds like this motor is just a paper weight. Oh well, it was something I got, so no harm.
