There is no "best" mod motors, like is the case with stock.

From what I have experienced, I can tell you this: Mod motors have very different characteristics and there are different types that suit certain track conditions best.

Reedy and Thunderpower Motors are smooth, they can take a little more turbo and still run well, but they are not the fastest in a straight line. Fastest does not always mean quickest around the track.

LRP are violently fast. They have a lot of low end and crazy top end. They are suited for high bite large outdoor tracks. They don't do as much boost as the Reedy or TP.

Speed Passion/Orion are a mix somewhere in between. They are good all around.

Novak motors, Are the weakest of the bunch. They are smooth, but not as fast. They take a good bit of boost though. They would not be my first choice though. They don't do particularly well vs the other motors in any area. If you are looking for milder motors, they might be what you want.

The Hobbywing V10 are promising. They are just recently available though so not a lot of people have experience with them, however the XERUN 4.5t motor is the fastest motor I have ever put in my TC. Too fast for an indoor track. The motor was surprisingly smooth on the bottom and would just keep revving on long straights. It created havoc on wiring though. The motor called for larger wires and better plugs on the battery. I think they are similar to the GM Delta winds which are stupid fast too. The motors look very similar physically.

The trinity motors I have no experience with. My only issue is the QC seems to be the worse from the group.

You had the same experience with the v10 that I had, although I have a 17.5. The low end is super smooth and the thing is a monster on the straight because it just gets faster the longer you hold it down. I think it's more suited outdor where you could really let the RPMs take over bc the low end is almost TOO smooth.

With 17.5 and other spec motors, If your bottom end is too "smooth" and the motor is still accelerating, you need to gear down. RPM and or torque don't make a motor better for long or short tracks. It is an issue of your total wattage (the real power number). A properly geared high rpm motor that makes more watts than a high torque motor should always be faster and vice versa, short or long track. They just have to be geared completely different.

I didn't know your post count dictated your real world experience with a certain product?

I couldn't agree more. The best motor for my driving style on one particular track will be different from what suits another drivers driving style.

We have a couple guys locally who buy into the motor of the week club and I have no issues at all beating them with my tekin motors.

There is a big difference between the Novak 4.5t and the Novak 3.5t motors... It seems that each brand has a wind that shines while other winds suck... I guess it's best not to be stuck in a specific wind but to experiment and find which wind works for a particular brand...
Unless there are objections this is what I gathered:
#1 fastest 2.5t motors: d3.5 / fantom ion4
#2 fastest 3.0t motors: Lrp
#3 fastest 3.5t motors: Novak / Lrp
#4 fastest 4.0t motors: Lrp
#5 fastest 4.5t motors: Lrp by a mile....
#6 fastest 17.5t motors: d3.5(soon to be illegal)
I am sticking to my Novak 3.5t motors and add boost yo go faster or use my d3.5 2.5t with boost but will have to be smooth to make runtime... I have a few 4.5t novak motors but won't use them much...
