Default Novak motor question

I'm looking to buy a new Novak 17.5 for my touring car, but I was wanting to know which of these novaks is better the Vulcan spec 17.5 or the ballistic premium spec 17.5. Looking at the price on amain 114.99 for the ballistic and 97.99 for the Vulcan I would assume the ballistic premium would be better being priced higher. Let me know what you guys think.

Go with the Vulcan, it is an updated version of the Ballistic and comes with the 12.5mm rotor.

The Vulcan has more tq but less rpm while the ballistic has less to tq but more rpm. So which is best depends on your track. Slow small tracks the Vulcan. Fast medium to large tracks the ballistic.

Go with the Vulcan, all around a better design of the can.
