Honestly depends on the size of your track. For small tracks down here in Aus we have noticed they are all on par. (D3.5, Reedy, LRP, Powers). On larger tracks with a 50m straight the D3.5 has it hands down in and out of corners and the straight.

You should get your hands on a Team Powers motors. There's a reason why it dominates the reedy race year after year.

I have tried the powers v2, and it has nice power, but i really didnt like the lack of brakes. What would be a suggested FDR and timing setting?

For 13.5 boosted it's usually the motor which will handle the heat the best, and not blow up lol, GM is probably the most popular motor in the UK for this class, don't know anyone who has blew one up

13.5T motors run cooler in boosted.

If you are running boosted it doesn't matter much, any decent 13.5T will do the job.

In blinky, killshot, Orca Tx, R1, HW V10 LRP X20 go well.

I haven't used thunder power, but Reedy MK2 motors I found will fade at the 70 deg mark (160F) where as the Trinity D3.5 and D4 will handle 70-75 deg all day.

we had a track temperature of 60deg on the weekend (yep it was stupid hot) and the trinity's just didn't miss a beat.

Second that the D3.5 are an awesome motor if you are still allowed to use them they are very hard to go passed.

hardly anybody here uses the reedy type motors in 13.5 boosted, or with any great success, same as with HW, Orca's are used but not as common as the GM as the GM can handle incredible heat. The LRP x12 and x20 are funny with some speedo's, most that run LRP motors will run it with LRP speedo's. Team powers new motor has only just became legal here, been hearing good things though, this is for outdoor running

I should also add I have been testing the D4 the last couple of weeks at our smaller club track and have it on par with my D3.5, I would like to try it in practice this Thursday or Friday at the nats on a much larger track if I get time as I still have it set up in my spare car.
