Default GM Motors / Tekin Red line gen 2 rpm

So.. if you are on MSUK as well i have been testing 17.5t motors or well motors in general is should say, because i want to see whats out there, and if companies claims of a ultimate motor is true.

so far i have tested a dynamite DPS 17.5t and a HPI FLUX pro 17.5t with black rotor.

So far, there are differences..rather large ones but i do have a question about my next candidates.

I have a GM 10.5T thats going in my 12th but i thought for giggles ill stick it in my TC for a little bit, obviously its 10.5t so its stupidly quick compared to a 17.5t but what i saw immediately was how smoooooth it was so it got me thinking.

If i was going to pick either a Tekin gen 2 rpm 17.5t or a GM pro 17.5t which one should i get first, which is the faster of the two, i was originally going to get the Tekin but the GM has...intrigued me some what.

If you are here in the states I would look at the Tekin, Europe - -the GM.

What are you using for your measurement criteria? With most motors you can buy tuning rotors and change the performance characteristics by a good bit depending on the class (higher torque for TC, more RPM for 1/12, etc etc).

Any reason why i should look at GM pro over Tekin? both are readily available here in the UK

measurement criteria is just simply out of the box performance

Just had a go with the 10.5t in my TC (GM) ..sweet jesus its quick.

dont rule out the team wave motor or the lrp x20 the fastest drivers in blinky run them at amcc, my son runs the gm,very hard to find the sweet spot,but they are bulletproof,ive just changed from a gm 13.5 to the lrp x20 but havent raced with it yet,just some practice runs after racing was finished and over the gm my car feels faster with the lrp with better brakes,the gm is crap on the brakes
this is with a team orion r10 esc,good luck with whatever motor you choose

Not really, here in the states we don't have the GM or team wave (or a few other manufacturers). Tekin's Gen 2 motors are supposed to be pretty good but haven't heard many people running them overseas.

And I was looking for a little more detail on testing procedures. Are you measuring KV, strength of rotor, resistance, torque curve, etc etc?

It isnt going to be scientific to that extent im afraid, looking at differences in KV but thats probably as far as it goes, other than that it will be what makes a lap quicker.

The LRP x20 is a nice bit of kit but im not fond of the jumpers for the timing changes, the GM yea brakes did seem a bit weak but quite the opposite now its in my 12th, brakes very well,

Team wave eclipse is one i am looking at, i do like the lights on the end bell! and seem to be getting rave reviews.
