id rather have tons of rip out of the corners personally...David root is right...a straightaway is 10% of the track or less....at least where i normally race theres about 13 corners and one straight

Is everybody running either the monster or binary motors only? How does the Orion/Peak stocker compare on a huge onroad track? What brushes and springs for the Orion/Peak?

I'm not and have never been a big fan of the Orion/ Peak TOP style motors. Just never seem to work out for me.l

Looses brutally....

I do like the Core Stock better on a tight layout...People say it doesn't produce much more torque over a monster but it has more rip off the line, But...I don't have to re-zap the magnets everytime I use an Orion motor

Comming out of the corners dude...

I can do really good when I have a capable motor (3rd, 2.25 seconds behind leader last race after a 7th place start w/ a borrowed Putnam Monster)

I'm just reffering to the poor quality of the magnets Trinity uses

I liked the "Spitfire" motor a lot! It was easily my favorite motor. But for some reason, I havn't been able to get the Core or Hel!fire to work for me. (yes, I know they're the same motor) However, I know its cheating, but a MHP in a Core can, freaking rips! All I do is race stock, so I've come to love the MHP and P2K2. They've been the most consistant for me.

Whats yer point? I aint sponsored

I might have been able to turn 19 laps (expert stock pace) if I figured my speed control problem earlier

So...An MHP arm in a Core can rips? What kinda revs (top end) does it get?

I got a decent (hopefully) Monster finally...We'll see at R/C CAR (hopefully, damn ROAR fee might prevent me from racing)

On a large track I've gotten my Mvp to work so I see no reason not to be able to get the core working. I had to run a 34 rollout. My motor did get very hot.

I switched to the trinity/epic stockers and they are much easier to deal with. So far I've only run the binary a few times but it doesn't feel like it has the snap out of the corners that my monster does. The binary seems to be able to pull a higher ratio without loosing on the infield or getting too hot. So far the binary looks to be faster.

I don't know as far as numbers....just from a feel and straight/ corner exit standpoint, it "felt" very fast.

How does it compare to the Monster stock in terms of top end/torque?

With the Core magnets, it definetely felt like it had a bit more torque. I also re cut it and put in high silver brushes so it did have more top end...but all in all, it just felt fast.
