It has to be legal . Vegas isn't even allowing the D3.5 .

Killshot, Revtech, Reedy mach 2 or the Orca RX are all fast. These were the hot ticket at the AOC in melbourne last week in 17.5 blinky. Most of the current high C rated packs from Reedy, Orca, Revtech and Thunder power are also great.

The SchuurSpeed 17.5 is also a great performing motor.

Fantom(Killshot)ApexV2 HT Stator with a 12.5HT rotor is good as a D3.5. Costs a little more with the 12.5HT but its worth it

Killshot high torque motor! If you're going to get it, might as well get it from eXpress Motorsports. You'll pay the same price as everywhere else but you get better QC and support from John Tag!

I have an eXpress "Beast" motor coming in. Basically its the high torque version Killshot but with 12.5 rotor instead of 12.3 torque rotor. Can't wait to try it out.

In TC on carpet I did like the D3.5 with the HT rotor. In 1/12 my times were faster with a Reedy Sonic with the 12.3 rotor.

Two fastest cars at our big annual outdoor trophy race were reedy powered. seems to be a strong motor everywhere you put it.
